LAMAR Odom has shared his support for Khloe Kardashian after Tristan Thompson confirmed he is the father of Maralee Nichols' child.
The 42-year-old NBA star said he wants to "reconnect" with his ex-wife, who he believes "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."
Lamar was married to Khloe from 2009 until 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.

The 30-year-old wrote on his Instagram story on Monday night: "Today, paternity tests results revealed that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
“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.
"Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son."
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.
As The Sun previously reported, Khloe feels "mortified" by the latest cheating episode from Tristan as he has been publicly caught being unfaithful to her several times in the past.
In his latest slip-up, the basketball player claimed that his relationship with Maralee was a one-night hookup initially.
However, he later admitted in legal documents that he met up with her several times for sex.
Tristan shares one child with Khloe, their daughter True. He also has a son, Prince, 5, with ex Jordan Craig.
