Made shortly before Jamie’s death, the decision Lamar bitterly regrets

Lamar Odom is said to be struggling hugely in the aftermath of his best friend Jamie Sangouthai's death.

The 37-year-old died two days ago, apparently from a heroin overdose. 

Also weighing heavily on Lamar's mind is a decision he made shortly before Jamie's death – namely that he cut him off following a falling out, seemingly over the latter's continued drug-use.

Understandably, the former basketball player now deeply regrets the animosity that existed between the pair.

“Lamar is beating himself up over Jamie’s death. They had a big falling out not too long ago and Lamar cut him off completely. 

"Lamar thought it was for the best, as Jamie was really struggling and looking for enablers. Now, Lamar doesn’t know if he made the right decision,” a source told

The estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian is trying to make amends by offering as much support as he can to Jamie’s family.

“He really loved Jamie and has reached out to his family to lend his support. Lamar is going to pay for everything — the funeral, any flights, and hotels that the family needs,” the same source added.

Jamie, who often appeared in the KUWTK spin-off show Khloe & Lamar, was rushed to hospital on June 14 and later died there of an apparent heroin overdose.

It has also been reported that the unexpected death has forced Ms Kardashian, 30, and Mr Odom to rethink their relationship and reevaluate the future. Although she was seen getting close to James Harden over the weekend, Khloe is said to be offering as much care and support as she can to her husband during this difficult time.
