Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may have had a contentious split, but that isn’t keeping the reality star from exhibiting some human kindness toward her estranged hubby.

Lamar, who recently quit Laboral Kutxa, the Spanish team with whom he had a two month contract, following a back injury sustained on the court, may be down in the dumps about having hurt his chances at returning to the NBA, but it looks as though Khloe’s intent on cheering him up.

HollywoodLife reports that Khloe reached out to Lamar to express her pride and admiration for him taking such major steps to get his life back on track, even if he couldn’t find it in him to fix things while they were still together.

“It made him feel better when she said, ‘I’m sorry it didn’t work out, but don’t let that stop you from pushing forward and getting back on the court. I’m proud of the changes you’ve been making,’” reveals a Kardashian insider.

While Khloe may be supportive of her soon-to-be ex-husband, he shouldn’t take this as a sign that she’s forgiven him — or is ready to rekindle their relationship.

“She’s not taking him back or anything like that,” says the source. “She’s just being very sweet and kind.”

Do you think it’s wise for Khloe to keep in contact with Lamar if she’s proceeding with the divorce?
