We’ve been concerned for Lamar Odom‘s wellbeing lately, especially after that scary plane incident.
On Monday, the sports star was kicked off a Delta flight after her reportedly got drunk before boarding and then vomited in the aircraft’s cabin.
And on Friday, Kris Jenner broke her silence about the basketball player’s recent trouble, opening up to Kylie and Jackie O about the shocking scandal, saying:
“I don’t know what happened. It was a big surprise to me. All I can say is I just want the very best for him because he’s like my son. He’s a part of my family and I adore him. He’s the best. He’s the best! He’s the greatest guy in the world and anybody that knows him will tell you the same thing.”
The momager admitted that she’s devastated to learn that the 36-year-old is having a tough time, adding:
“You just want the best for anyone that you love. I think that what I have learned through all of this is that anybody who’s struggled with addiction, it’s a disease and I’ve learned a lot…you can’t judge somebody else unless you’re really walking in their shoes and that’s what I’ve learned.”
“I am excited. That kid, he just never ceases to surprise me.”
However, she was caught off-guard by the precious pair’s public announcement, commenting:
“That was kind of a very interesting way to find out in today’s social media whirlwind. But, you know, he’s happy, and if he’s happy, I’m happy.”
And, the 60-year-old also explained that her son seems to be happy once again after seeming so miserable for a while, admitting:
“I feel like he is [out of that slump] and I feel like it’s definitely a blessing that he’s back to the old Rob that we all know and love. I think that he’s in a very good place right now and he’s more comfortable in his own skin and he’s back to being the old Rob. The old Rob is so funny and so engaging and so charming and such a wonderful guy. And to see that disappear for a minute broke my heart. So to have him in this happy place, it means everything.”
Kris also says Rob’s new positivity has improved her own attitude:
“You know it’s that old saying, ‘You’re only as happy as your least happy child,’ and it’s so true. I never understood it until now.”
Well, we’re just glad Kris and Rob seem to be on good terms, and hope that Lamar is doing alright.
