Lamar Odom is reportedly showing Rob Kardashian some much-needed support after his family were alleged to have turned their backs on him when he began dating Blac Chyna. According to initial claims, the Kardashians were fuming over Rob’s involvement with the socialite, convinced that the former stripper was only with him for publicity and revenge.
It is obvious as to why they would think so. After all, Chyna’s ex-fiancé, Tyga, ended up leaving her and their son, Cairo, for the superficial lifestyle with Kylie Jenner, who was only 17 when she began dating the “Stimulated” rapper. All in all, there’s a connection between the idea that Chyna would seek revenge on the Kardashians after having had her relationship ruined by them.
Can’t ya see it’s a set up…

Odom, who shared a strong bond with Rob during his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, is hoping to repair the damages that have left a tense atmosphere between the family. According to Hollywood Life, now that the NBA player has made drastic changes in his life — which could ultimately lead him to reconcile with Khloe — he is taking Rob under his wing and hopes to prove to the family that Chyna may not be such a bad influence after all.
Rob stayed the majority of the last three years with Khloe, who pampered the sock designer with money, food, and cars. And while she may have considered the idea of having her brother live with her as a wise decision, her own kindness didn’t help the 28-year-old in the slightest. He continued to gain weight and infamously decided to quit Keeping Up With the Kardashians following the endless scrutiny he received from social media users.

However, ever since the reality star moved in with Blac Chyna, he’s been working out, eating healthy, and most of all, he has been leaving the house regularly. Odom is said to be stressing to the Kardashians that, if anything, they should be happy for Rob, for this is the first time in years that the TV-personality has managed to get his life together and change his bad habits.
“Lam was gushing with joy for Rob and told Khloe and Kim they should be too! He told them he relates to Rob and that all they both need is love from their families. Lamar wants to go hiking again, with the entire Kardashian clan, and told Khloe and Kim that Rob and his girl need to be included because it’s the right thing to do and Rob needs the support.”
It is quite the coincidence that Lamar and Rob Kardashian, who both faced public meltdowns in 2012 and 2013, would finally make vital changes in their life to better themselves. Especially since both stars have been close to knocking on death’s door in recent months.

Odom, who has made a miraculous recovery from his drug overdose just four months ago, has reportedly sworn to stay away from drugs. The near-death experience was a wake-up call for the 36-year-old — to the point where he has even considered trying to rekindle his relationship with Khloe.
Regardless of whether the Kardashians are convinced that Blac Chyna is a good influence on Rob, the fact that he has made significant improvements over the last month speaks for itself. Even if one was to assume that Chyna has bad intentions, she has still motivated Rob enough for him to regain his confidence and turn his life around.
