Lamar Odom still has plenty of love for his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian. The retired NBA player, 38, sent his well wishes to the pregnant reality star, 33, during an appearance on an upcoming episode of Mancave.
“I’m happy for her,” Odom said on the BET late-night show in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek. “She took care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
Us Weekly exclusively revealed last October that Kardashian is expecting her first child, a boy, with her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. She confirmed the news on Instagram in December.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was married to Odom from 2009 to 2016. She remained by his side when he was hospitalized in late 2015 after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada.
“I still got my shawty’s name still on me, her initials still on me,” the former Los Angeles Lakers star said on Mancave, pointing to the ink on his hand. “But for no reason. You know what I’m saying? I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”
Odom is the first celebrity guest to appear on the new 12-episode talk show, which is executive produced by Steve Harvey and features men sharing what they often talk about within their inner circle of male friends.
Mancave premieres on BET on Thursday, January 18, at 10:30 p.m. ET.
