Lamar is recovering well since his hospitalisation in October
It seems the former NBA star’s ex Khloé Kardashian’s support has played a part in Lamar’s recovery. “They are just so close right now,” the source revealed. “If he is not in therapy, he is often with her.”
The estranged couple have been spending a lot of time together and sharing meals every evening. “Lamar and Khloé are trying to make sure they have dinner together every night,” added the source.
Khloe has been at Lamar’s side during his recovery
Khloé talked about her close relationship with Lamar on Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, telling the TV host that he’s not going through the recovery alone.
“He’s hung out with Kourt’s and [Kim Kardashian]’s kids. He loves family time,” the reality TV star said. “So, he’s been doing really good. I think it makes him feel good to be around everyone, too, and to just be in a happy environment over obviously where he was.”
Khloe’s brother Rob Kardashian, who has been coping with his diabetes diagnosis, made sure to spend time with Lamar during this difficult time. “The guys have taken comfort in each other,” a source previously told E! News.
