There have been several rumors about Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom getting back together. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, sources say that Lamar has been trying to get back together with his ex-wife, and that the two aren’t going through with their divorce because they have some unfinished business to deal with. If any of this is true, or if Khloe and Lamar are on speaking terms, one can only imagine that they are leaning on each other during this difficult time.
If the two haven’t been talking, it’s possible that Jamie Sangouthai’s death could bring them back to each other. Fans have been tweeting their condolences, many completely shocked that Jamie has passed away.
