The Truth About Karlie Redd And Lamar Odom's Relationship

It's safe to say Lamar Odom's most high-profile relationship was with Khloe Kardashian, whom he was with for four years before officially separating from in 2016. The couple got married in 2009 just one month after they met (per Us Weekly), and though they broke up in 2013, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star didn't finalize their divorce until he recovered from the near-death overdose he suffered in October 2015 at a brothel in Nevada, per CNN.

After Khloe, Lamar dated Sabrina Parr for nearly two years before ending things in December 2020. Then in April, the former basketball player sparked dating rumors with another reality star: "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" cast member Karlie Redd. The two were spotted at multiple events together (per The Shade Room), including "L&HH" star Yandy Smith's birthday party and at the press conference in Atlanta, Ga. for Lamar's celebrity boxing match.

During an appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show," Lamar Odom addressed his relationship with Karlie Redd. However, he alleged they're just "friends." He explained, "We're really good friends getting to know each other." This was after Wendy called the relationship "fake," after all. When asked if they're hooking up, Lamar said "nah" and confirmed he's "happily single." As for Karlie, she's remained tight-lipped about Lamar, but she had no problem calling out Wendy Williams after the talk show host called her "too old and a little dusty" for the former NBA star. Karlie clapped back, per The Shade Room, and even accused Wendy of wanting Lamar all to herself. "Sir Wendell, You said I'm Dusty!! Where?" Karlie wrote on Instagram, per the outlet. "...If you want Lamar just day dat!" she added.

So while the truth about Lamar and Karlie's relationship remains unclear, it definitely seems like the two are more than just friends — especially because it's been revealed that he will appear on a few episodes of her reality show, "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" after he was featured in the show's trailer. Therefore, fans will likely find out what's really going on between them when the new season premieres on July 5 on VH1.
