Lamar Odom tuned into the “Kardashians” premiere on Thursday — and had a “hard” time watching his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian, struggle onscreen.
The former NBA player, 42, told E! News that he wants the reality star, 38, to “find happiness … however she has to” in the future.
“She was crying on the show and everybody was questioning her and s–t like that,” Odom said of the Hulu show’s Season 2 premiere. “That was probably a hard time for her.
“It’s always going to be hard for me to watch someone I love so much sad like that,” the retired athlete added.

“I just want her to be happy and healthy,” the model told the outlet.
Odom married the Good American co-creator in 2009, and the exes finalized their divorce in 2016.
Since their split, the “Celebrity Big Brother” alum has expressed a desire to “reconnect” with Kardashian amid her on-again, off-again boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s infidelity.Odom called Season 2 of the Hulu show “hard” to watch.HULU
Thompson, 31, began dating the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum in 2016, making headlines for cheating on her in 2018 and 2019. (The first time, Kardashian was pregnant with their now-4-year-old daughter, True.)
Although the former couple got back together amid the coronavirus pandemic and conceived a baby boy via surrogate, news broke in December 2021 that Thompson had also fathered a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols.
Odom predicted to TMZ in January that Kardashian would be “alright,” adding, “She’s a strong girl.”
Kardashian found out that Thompson was unfaithful during the June finale of “The Kardashians,” and she sobbed while on the phone with Kim Kardashian.
“I can’t f–king believe this,” the “Strong Looks Better Naked” author said tearfully.

However, the “Celebrity Apprentice” alum felt like she could “heal” once the little one was in her arms in July. She even allowed Thompson to visit the hospital despite being “on the fence” about seeing him.
“Let him come,” Khloé decided in a confessional. “He’ll never get this moment back.”
Although she and the power forward have yet to reveal their newborn’s name, his face was shown for the first time in the hospital footage.
“He looks just like True!” Kim, 41, gushed of her nephew, with Thompson later saying the same.
