Lamar Odom Dead? Celebrities Tweet RIP Messages
Cleveland Cavaliers playing JR Smith as well as rapper Lil Wayne have already posted on their social media accounts saying that Lamar Odom is dead and saying kind words about Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband. However, no news of Lamar’s death has officially been released. Could the rumors that Odom is brain dead really be true?
JR Smith posted a long message on his Instagram account about Lamar’s “death” along with a photo of Lamar from college.
“RIP LO damn man I can’t believe this… If this isn’t a sign I don’t know what is!!! This life is so much bigger then basketball an any other sport! I can’t imagine what he was going through but I know he could have had some better people in his corner! Life doesn’t care how much money you made or how man championships you have when its time to go it’s time to go!

Learning a balance is key never get to high on the highs an never get to low on the lows! #RIPLO”
