KHLOE Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom slammed Tristan Thompson, calling him “corny” for getting Maralee Nichols pregnant while he was dating the reality star.
The athlete supported his former love after previously saying that he hopes to “reconnect” with his ex-wife.
Though Lamar hasn’t spoken to Khloe since her baby daddy’s latest cheating scandal, he told TMZ that he thinks now “would be a great time to be able to give her a hug.”
The NBA star also touched on Tristan’s actions, telling the tabloid “he’s corny” for what he did.
The 42-year-old superstar previously shared his feelings towards his ex saying he believes she “deserves the world.”
Lamar shared his thoughts while commenting on a Facebook post discussing Tristan’s paternity test results and apology to Khloe.
He wrote: “I truly wish nothing but the best for her and I’m hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends.
“She is a good person and deserves the world.”

Many encouraged Khloe, 37, to not give her ex-husband another chance.
One skeptical fan wrote: “Ugh they need to both leave her alone.”
Another told Khloe to “run,” as a third chimed in: “The 2 guys who treated her bad trying to claim they know what she deserves. How ironic.”
The backlash continued as another Kardashian fan wrote: “Bro if you had ANY love or respect for her you wouldn’t have treated her the way you have. That goes for anyone in a relationship.”
An additional person added: “Oh, stfu Lamar.”
Khloe and Lamar were married from 2009-2016.
She filed for divorce in 2013 amid cheating allegations after he was arrested for driving under the influence.
He checked himself into rehab and left a day later. Two years later he suffered a near-fatal overdose in Nevada.
Lamar and Tristan have had their differences in the past, having previously clashed in the comments of Khloe’s sexy bikini photo back in July.
So it’s no surprise that Lamar publicly gave his support to Khloe just hours after her baby daddy Tristan admitted that he is the father of Maralee’s son.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I looked forward to amicably raising our son.
“I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.
He then turned his attention directly to his ex in a separate Instagram story slide.
“Khloe. you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.
“You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions have certainly not lined up with the way I view you.
“I have the utmost respect and love for you, regardless of what you may think. Again I am so incredibly sorry.”
Maralee gave birth to Tristan’s child, a baby boy, on December 1 after months of the pair battling in court.
The former fitness instructor filed a lawsuit seeking financial support from the Canadian sports star.
She claimed in her legal filing that she and Tristan conceived the child on his birthday back in March.
At the time, Khloe was “exclusively” dating Tristan – who she had previously forgiven for past infidelity scandals.
FALLING IN LOVE
Lamar reacted to Tristan’s latest infidelity scandal shortly after he admitted to dumping actress Taraji P Henson to pursue a relationship with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum.
While appearing on TV One’s Uncensored, Lamar previously admitted: “Things ended with me and Taraji because me being an immature punk, I didn’t know how to tell her I was falling in love with another woman named Khloe Kardashian.”
The former Lakers player continued: “I just wish I could have respected women a lot more. Maybe I should have respected them a lot more from not having a mother. For some reason — I don’t know — I just over did it.”
After he met Khloe, Lamar admitted that everything changed in his romance with Taraji.
Lamar recalled: “I’ll never for that day because of them eyes. Her eyes are the same shape as my mothers eyes, Khloe’s.
“I didn’t even know who she was. I was Lamar Odom. I didn’t give a f**k about no Kardashians. But that night changed my life.”
