Lamar Odom’s Best Friend Dies After Drug Overdose, Khloe Kardashian And Friends Pay Tribute

Some sad news to report today. Lamar Odom’s best friend, Jamie Sangouthai, passed away from a drug overdose. TMZ is reporting that police believe it was a heroin OD. Fans of the Kardashian family probably recognize Jamie from the show, Khloe & Lamar. He had a special bond with Lamar, and had been friends with members of the Kardashian family for over six years.

Sources say Lamar is devastated…

Lamar is beside himself. This is the worst tragedy. This is so sad. They were best friends, like brothers. Lamar is going to take this really hard.

Jamie was just 37-years-old. Khloe Kardashian asked, “When does it stop?” on her Twitter account. Followed by a broken heart emoji, and the words, “RIP Jamie Sangouthai.”

Later in the day, Khloe posted the image you see below, with the message, “Life doesn’t get easier but I promise you that life will make you stronger.”


Hopefully Lamar has a solid support group around him right now. Not only were they best friends, but they also suffered from the same problems with drugs. We’re sure there is no one in the world that “gets” Lamar like Jamie did.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
