The reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians might be finished, but the drama certainly isn’t.
Over the weekend, not one, but two of Khloé Kardashian’s exes publicly thirsted after her on an Instagram post, before they began fighting over her in the comments for millions to see.
It started when Lamar Odom, who was married to Kardashian from 2009 to 2016, commented on an image of Kardashian in a bikini, writing, “Hottie” alongside a series of fire and love-heart eye emojis.
This alone is confusing given that just last month, Kardashian confirmed that while she wishes him the best, she no longer speaks to her ex-husband, whom she filed for divorce from in 2016 due to his infidelity and substance abuse issues.
Odom, for his part, ended his engagement to Sabrina Parr in November 2020 and is now single. He would also, according to an E! News source, ”love to get back with [Kardashian].”
Shortly after Odom posted his comment, Kardashian’s other ex, Tristan Thompson, whom she broke up with for the third time in June, showed up on the post to leave a series of thirsty emojis of his own. The NBA player then noticed Odom’s comment and replied directly to that.
“God brought you back the first time,” he wrote, seemingly referencing Odom’s near-fatal overdose at a Las Vegas brothel in October 2015. “Play if you want, different results.”
Odom later appeared to delete his comments before relocating to Twitter for one final dig. There, he retweeted an edit of various basketball players laughing while trying to keep a straight face during Fergie’s performance of the national anthem during a game in 2018. The accompanying caption read: “NBA Twitter watching Tristan Thompson pretend to act tough on Lamar Odom.”

Kardashian hasn’t publicly responded to her exes’ feud, but a source told E! News she thinks their behaviour is extremely “childish.” She “hates” that her exes were “publicly acting like that.”
Thompson’s comments are also confusing, given he and Kardashian, who share a three-year-old daughter, True, reportedly broke up for a third time amid yet more cheating allegations last month. Following all of the drama, Thompson posted a birthday message to Kardashian calling her his “partner.”
Whoever named Keeping up with the Kardashians deserves an award, because time after time they’ve proven it’s literally impossible to do so.
