Khloe Kardashian shares heartbreak after tragic weekend


Tributes were pouring in via social media last night after news emerged that Jamie Sangouthai, a close friend of Lamar Odom, had passed away.

Jamie reportedly died on Sunday in hospital after a heroin overdose. 

Although many believe the 37-year-old was a key player in the drug addiction issues that ended Lamar's marriage to Khloe Kardashian, the reality star herself took to Twitter last night to share her devastation at the shocking news.

"When does it stop? RIP Jamie Sangouthai," she wrote, followed by a series of broken heart and sad face emojis.

This morning she posted to Instagram to remind fans that life "doesn't get easier but I promise you that life will make you stronger."

Jamie will be known to viewers of Khloé and Lamar's ill-fated reality show, Khloé & Lamar, having appeared on both seasons as well as living next door to the couple during the show.

Khloé's longtime best friend Mailka Haqq also shared a touching tribute to Jamie via Instagram, posting a throwback picture of herself, Khloé, Lamar and Jamie in happier times:

Although Lamar himself has yet to make any public statement, sources close to the former NBA player say he has taken Jamie's death extremely hard.

"Lamar is beside himself. This is the worst tragedy," one insider told Us Weekly last night, with another source adding that the pair were "like brothers".

Our thoughts are with those close to Jamie at this hard time.
