To celebrate, the NBA star took to Instagram to give a proper “thank you” to his loved ones, including Khloé Kardashian.

Fans of the former couple showed their excitement at the rare interaction, and some even expressed their hope for a reunion between the exes now that Khloé is single and Lamar seems to be a changed man.

“I have always felt like KoKo and Lammy were never finished...” wrote one user.

And another added,

“@khloekardashian miss you guys together wish our good lord to bring you guys back together. You are a good woman, and I believe he will change and be a good man to you.”

THEIR STORY

Khloé and Lamar met in 2009 and married only one month after their first encounter.

In “Darkness to Light,” Lamar gets candid about his cocaine and sex addiction and how that affected his relationship with Khloé, eventually leading to a messy divorce after a four-year marriage.

He also opens up about his near-death experience back in 2015, when he was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada and fell into a coma after an overdose of drugs and alcohol.

Back then, Khloé stepped up to take care of Lamar despite their split, halting the divorce proceedings to fulfill her role as his primary caretaker. For that, Lamar says he will always be grateful to the Good American designer.

“I wish I could have been more of a man,” Odom told PEOPLE of his relationship with Khloé. “It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.”

The 39-year-old has revealed he hopes to reconnect with Khloé at some point but says it’s up to her.

“The love that I have, I don’t think it’ll ever diminish,” he recently told Hollywood Life. “I married her after 30 days, and when I woke up from out of the coma, she was wiping my backside. So, I don’t think that love will go anywhere.”
