Lamar Odom has surfaced in New York City.
As rumors regarding Khloe Kardashian’s new relationship with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson continue to swirl, Odom was photographed with a friend in the Big Apple, where he’s been for the past few weeks.
On September 9, Sports World News shared the latest social media photo of Odom, which featured the former NBA player with DJ Mister Cee. In the picture, Odom was seen wearing a white T-shirt while giving the peace sign to the camera.

As fans may recall, Lamar Odom traveled to New York City in August after being booted from the home Khloe Kardashian had been renting for him in Calabasas, California. In January, after Odom was released from West Hollywood, California’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, his estranged wife, Kardashian, rented him the home so he could be closer to her and her family, including her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian.
In October of last year, Lamar Odom suffered a drug overdose, and for days he was said to be in a coma fighting for his life as many of his organs continued to fail. While things weren’t looking good for the former professional athlete in the days that followed his hospitalization, he eventually woke up and was transferred to Los Angeles from Nevada, where he had been partying at a brothel.
After Lamar Odom’s overdose, Kardashian rushed to his side as he recovered and remained supportive of him up until he reportedly returned to drinking and drugs earlier this year. At that point, Kardashian chose to move on from their relationship and from their friendship and refiled documents to put an end to their marriage.

“This was always the plan. The divorce has never been officially off. Khloe was waiting for the timing to be right,” a source told People Magazine at the time of Kardashian’s filing.
“She was loyal for a long time and taking care of [Lamar Odom], but she’s not a babysitter and needs to move on with her life,” a second source added. “She’s honestly fine and it’s more of a formality at this point. She’s there for him and they’re in regular contact and she wishes him well. She’ll always be there for him. But as far as their marriage is concerned, that’s over and has been for quite some time. It was time to make it official.”
“Khloe cares about [Lamar Odom] and he’ll always be in her life,” the insider continued. “But there is only so much you can do for a person. You can’t help or fix someone who won’t fix themselves.”
After Lamar Odom was spotted at a bar with friends in March of this year, a source told People Magazine that Kardashian was “very worried about Lamar and his behavior but Lamar refuses to listen to her.”
Following her divorce filing, Kardashian distanced herself from Lamar Odom as he moved from Los Angeles to New York City and months later, in August of this year, she was spotted with a new man, Tristan Thompson. Weeks ago, Kardashian and Thompson were seen at a nightclub in Los Angeles and house hunting in Beverly Hills. Next, the rumored new couple traveled to Mexico for what appeared to be a romantic vacation with friends.
As Lamar Odom continues to live in New York City, Kardashian has remained silent in regard to the nature of her relationship with Thompson.
