If you tuned into Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s back in its heyday then you know that after a rocky start Bruce Jenner and Lamar Odom became kind of close. There seemed to be a mutual respect there for quite awhile plus they both easily bonded over being married into the Kardashian money-making machine – not to mention that they are both world class athletes. While Bruce may not love Lamar’s drug use and the way that it hurt Khloe Kardashian, the guys are still pretty tight.
Since Bruce and Lamar walked away from the family at about the same point in time it gives them one more thing to have in common. I have to think that crawling out from Kris Jenner’s thumb and no longer being controlled by the family business has to kind of resemble escaping a cult. Both men needed to get their bearings before figuring out what the hell comes next. Lamar decided his career was calling and is now playing basketball overseas and Bruce, well he’s obviously looking a whole lot different nowadays.
My guess is that no one else really understands what these two have been through and so it makes them natural confidants now. Supposedly Lamar is one of the few people that Bruce is really talking to about his road to gender reassignment surgery. We’ve also seen Bruce acting a whole lot more hostile towards the media. His super nice guy image was partly because Kris had his balls in her Chanel bag. Once he took them back everyone is seeing Bruce in a different light as he undergoes an apparent sex change. He may be morphing physically into a woman but he is carrying himself more like a man than ever before! Are you surprised that Lamar and Bruce are still tight? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
