It’s not her first hint that she is lonely. She told younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner that she’ll be on the first flight back to Calabasas when her husband is finished with his season.
But the brunette doesn’t have time to stress about her own trivial matters and needs to be there for her partner who is coping with the various issues that being back in town has brought up.
Khloe is worried about Lamar, who hasn’t been as close to his best friend, Jamie Sangouthai, since moving away.

Jamie repeatedly complains that he can’t even get into the clubs anymore without Lamar’s sportsman status on his side.
With his wife at the side watching the it all unravel, she couldn’t help but mention that it upset her later as the pair snuggle up in bed.
But a non-confrontational Odom explained to her: ‘I just think he’s in a selfish stage.’
Eager to sort matters out so he can play the all-important game at his best level, won’t let it lie.
‘If Lamar doesn’t have the heart to tell his best friend of 20 years how he feels then I’ll do it.’
Outspoken: She expressed her concerns about Odom's friend when they snuggled up in bed
After letting him know that his comments were insensitive, Jamie told the star that he simply took it the wrong way.
But Lamar’s wife didn’t give up and suggested he call the star who she affectionately refers to as ‘Lam.’
He comes to his senses and while Odom made his way to his game, Jamie reached out via his mobile phone to make amends.
‘I’ve been here forever and I’m going to stay here forever. Whether you’re in the NBA or a janitor. I’m here for you brother,’ he said in a heartfelt voice message.

All the best: Lamar appreciated his buddy reaching out before his big game
He could barely stand to take part in an interview as he arrived at the Staples Center and as a pushy reporter joked that he doesn’t even know his way around the stadium anymore, beads of sweat appear his face.
It’s clear the couple still aren’t over his recent trade which resulted in the uprooting of their lives.
Kardashian chats to the Lakers’ Special Projects managers at the backstage bar, and the ladies agree that the transition must be difficult for him however he will always have a home with them.
Nerves are dominant as the whole Kardashian clan and their close friends help fill out the stadium.

It’s a touching moment as at the start of the episode he admits that he would have preferred to stay with his long-time colleagues.
He says that he hopes the Los Angeles Lakers fans know the truth about his departure and revealed: ‘The truth is that I wanted to stay but I couldn’t.’
