Lamar, 34, apparently spends hours at a time with Bruce, 64, with Bruce giving Lamar advice on how to stay clean and how to know which friends to stay away from.
Sources say that Bruce feels he's really getting through to Lamar and that Lamar has what it takes to pull his life around. In fact, Bruce has reportedly even referred to Lamar as a "good soul," according to sources.
"Everybody's got s—t in their life, and they need to learn how to deal with it," a source says. "Lamar didn't deal with his very well." You can say that again.
Meanwhile, Bruce — who is separated from Khloe's mom, Kris Jenner — has been telling friends that Lamar has been working out like crazy and is very dedicated about getting back into basketball shape. The NBA season started about two weeks ago, and Lamar is currently unsigned.
We think it's great that Bruce is taking time to guide Lamar. But do you think it will be enough to help Lamar and Khloe stay together — or is it too little, too late?
