Watch: Tristan Thompson Responds to Lamar Odom's Comment on Khloe
Khloe Kardashian is keeping up with her social media comments.
After recently being caught in the middle between her exes, Tristan Thompson and Lamar Odom, a source close to the reality TV personality exclusively tells E! News how she really felt about the whole ordeal—which went down on social media.
"Khloe thinks the IG comments from Lamar and Tristan were childish," the insider reveals. "She hates they were publicly acting like that, but also had a laugh."
For a quick refresher: Tristan and Lamar seemingly fought over Khloe in the comments section of her Instagram on Friday, July 9. At the time, the Good American co-founder shared a steamy bikini photo that captured her toned physique as she took an outdoor shower.
Shortly after, Lamar replied with the message "Hottie" and two flame emojis, as well as two heart-eyes emojis and two loving face emojis.
It didn't take long for Tristan to fire back, writing, "@lamarodom God brought you back the first time. Play if you want, different results."
Many took his comments as a reference to Lamar's nearly fatal overdose in 2015. At the time, the former Lakers player was transported to a hospital near Las Vegas after he consumed a mix of drugs and alcohol. He was in a coma for three days before breathing on his own. Following his hospitalization, he was moved into a private rehabilitation center in California to recover.

Although Tristan and Lamar's back-and-forth appeared to come out of left field, the insider tells E! News there's a reason the Boston Celtics player has been showing grand displays of affection for Khloe.
"Tristan has been desperately trying to win back Khloe," the source explains. "He truly loves her and wants to be with her. He hates that it couldn't work out and has been trying really hard to make her happy."
However, the insider notes that the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star isn't looking to rekindle her romance with Tristan. Instead, she's focused on co-parenting their 3-year-old daughter True Thompson.
As the source put it, "Khloe is done with him romantically but they still talk every day and see each other often. They have to communicate because of True and Khloe doesn't want any stress or tension added to her life. She keeps it cordial, but is not taking him back."
