Lamar Odom's best friend, Jamie Sangouthai, has passed away at the age of 37. "When does it stop? RIP Jamie Sangouthai," Khloe Kardashian tweeted Sunday. The Keeping Up With the Kardashian star's BFF, Malika Haqq, also chimed in, writing on Instagram, "Thru good and bad times life shows us every spirit matters and leaves a print on the hearts of others after they have passed... RIP Jamie Sangouthai #GodHelpUsAll."
If you'll recall, Jamie was a fixture on the now defunct E! reality show Khloe & Lamar, and it was clear how close he was to the former NBA player while he was on it. According to E! Online, Jamie and Lamar had been best friends since high school, worked on business deals together and Jamie served as one of Lamar's best men during his wedding to Khloe in 2009.
