Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom has some advice for Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce about his relationship with Taylor Swift.
and challenges of being a professional athlete with an A-list celebrity partner. The two-time NBA champion married Khloe Kardashian in 2009 and spent several tumultuous years married to the reality TV star. During that time, he struggled with cocaine addiction (which he later said contributed to his early exit from professional basketball), and he had “multiple” affairs with different women.
Odom and Kardashian officially split in 2016.
So what would Odom say to another athlete whose significant other is more famous than him? Odom, who later said he regretted his infidelities, said Kelce should just make sure to be vigilant about sticking with Swift.
My advice would be to be strong and stay by her and be as close to her as possible,” Odom told The Messenger in an interview published on Friday. “There are going to be millions of women that want to taste what Taylor Swift is tasting and it can be overwhelming because we’re men. He just has to be strong and stick by his girl and he’ll be all right.”
