Khloe Kardashian Welcomes Lamar's Estranged Father Into The Family

There are many reasonable charges to level at the Kardashian family, but nobody can deny that they're a close family unit. In fact, Khloe - arguably the most humble member of the family - seems to epitomise what's good about her clan with her devotion to her husband Lamar Odom, and his two children.
But it doesn't stop there, because the 27-year-old has been also helping to build bridges between the Mavericks star, 32 , and his estranged father Joe.

It's been an arduous endeavour given Lamar's feelings towards his absent father, but it looks like the plucky Kardashian has turned a corner.
She was photographed with Joe in Los Angeles today, and the pair looked to be in high spirits.
They were, unsurprisingly, filming a segment for the show but you'd have to possess a heart of stone not to be moved by this reconciliation, despite its public nature. 



The difficult kinship has been chronicled (of course) in the couple's E! reality show, Khloe and Lamar.
In a programme broadcast last April, Odom admitted: 'My father’s a heroin addict.'
Lamar's mother died of colon cancer when he was 12, and he was then raised by his grandmother Mildred.

Khloe was seen pushing for the Joe and Lamar to reconcile, but he remained resistant.
It all started when Joe Odom turned up unannounced to one of Khloe's book signings.
He approached Khloe at the event and told her he would like to reconnect with his son and attend some of his basketball games.
Khloe was unsure about the issues between the father and son and approached Lamar with the idea only for him to become distressed.
Luckily, the star who has faced so many reports about her own paternity, didn't give up on reclaiming a father for her partner.
