Lamar Odom faced rumors of a potential new girlfriend earlier this week after being spotted with the same woman twice. However, the former professional athlete is not dating his mystery woman.
Following rumors of an alleged relationship, a report claims the woman Lamar Odom has recently been photographed with is not his girlfriend but his publicist.
“The mystery woman is his publicist Eve Sarkisyan-Nunn, who he hopes will repair his image after his near-death experience from a drug overdose in October 2015,” the Daily Mail confirmed to readers on December 7.
Lamar Odom was rushed to the hospital on October 13 of last year after reportedly suffering a drug overdose while partying with women at a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.
Lamar Odom has faced troubles in recent years, and those struggles did damage to his now-ended marriage to Khloe Kardashian. After about four years of marriage, Lamar Odom’s former wife filed for divorce in December of 2013 as rumors suggested he had cheated on her with multiple women and reportedly used drugs behind her back.
After filing for divorce, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian continued to keep in touch with one another, and for months, rumors of a possible reunion between them swirled. Then, when Odom was hospitalized last year, Kardashian immediately rushed to his side and remained at the hospital as he recovered. She even arranged for him to live in a rental close to her Calabasas, California, home as he received outpatient care.
During episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians earlier this year, Lamar Odom was seen getting back to his life outside of the hospital — and getting closer to his formerly estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian. However, after the two discussed the idea of a second wedding, Odom reportedly returned to his old habits and Kardashian refiled her divorce documents.
“He is sad but also happy to move on with a clear mind,” a source told Us Weekly of Lamar Odom in May after Kardashian filed. “He is more independent now and with his friends all the time and his kids a lot. So he’s ready to move on.”
According to the magazine, Kardashian welcomed Lamar Odom back into her family with open arms, but after she allegedly discovered he was using again, she cut ties with him completely.
“Khloe had to put her foot down and stop helping him out,” an insider previously told the magazine. “She can’t watch him fall apart again.”
Earlier this month, Lamar Odom seemingly moved on from his marriage to Khloe Kardashian with someone new. However, after facing rumors of a new romance with his brunette mystery woman, with whom he was seen at Delilah in West Hollywood and later in Beverly Hills, the reports have since been confirmed as false.
“Sarkisyan-Nunn works at YES PR in Los Angeles,” the Daily Mail continued of Lamar Odom’s rumored girlfriend.
During their outing together in Beverly Hills, the outlet reported, “[Eve Sarkisyan-Nunn] looked like a Jenner clone as she was wearing an all black ensemble with an Hermes purse on her arm and pretty black pumps, adding a choker to appear fashion forward.”
Meanwhile, Lamar Odom looked “laid back and somber” in all black.
In addition to spending time with his publicist, Lamar Odom has been seen with his kids a couple of times recently. In fact, just days ago, the former Los Angeles Laker was seen in an Instagram photo that featured him standing in front of a Christmas tree with his daughter, Destiny, his son, Lamar Jr., and his former girlfriend, Liza Morales, the children’s mother.
After the photo was shared, rumors swirled in regard to a potential reunion between Lamar Odom and Liza Morales, which she quickly shot down.
