Lamar Odom has been like a ghost. It’s rare the former NBA star is spotted in public and his social media pages were pretty much non-existent. But now, the former Lakers player is stepping back into the spotlight with a brand new Instagram page.
The former Lakers player has ditched his former user name @lamarjose and is starting fresh with @lamarodom. Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband’s first post was just two days ago and it was an epic throwback photo of him during his time with the Lakers.
And although the former reality star has only shared four photos, they have all been incredibly entertaining. Just like most social media users, Odom has already shared a snapshot of food … chicken and rice was the meal and it was already half eaten. But we’ll take it.

After just two days of posting photos, the 35-year-old has garnered a cool 88.6k followers. So far, the New York native is following five people, including former teammates Derek Fisher, Kobe Bryant and New Orleans Pelican guard Quincy Pondexter.
Odom made headlines earlier this summer after losing his best friend Jamie Sangouthai. Jamie, who appeared several times on Lamar and Khloe’s reality show, Khloe & Lamar, died in June of necrotizing fasciitis, a rare flesh eating skin disease and chronic intravenous narcotism, constant drug use by use of needles.
Lamar has been off the radar, but in a new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe can be seen checking on Odom to make sure he is ok. “Lamar and I loved each other deeply and I don’t believe in just acting like that relationship never existed,” Kardashian said in the episode. “Things happened but that doesn’t just stop me from caring about him or loving him. So if I feel the need to check on Lamar, that’s my prerogative and I’m going to do it.”
Khloe filed for divorce from Odom in December 2013.
