Lamar Odom observed a tragic anniversary over the weekend, just two days after his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce.
The troubled NBA star’s deceased son Jayden would have celebrated his eighth birthday on Sunday, if he had lived.
The infant, who the 34-year-old shared with his ex-wife Liza Morales, died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in June 2006.
According to RadarOnline Lamar previously said of his son: ‘I still remember the day…watching [Jayden] come out, come out into the world.
Odom went on to recall the tragic day his son died: ‘When she called me, she [Liza Morales] was like really frantic.
On Sunday, Lamar’s ex Liza posted a snap of the boy to Instagram with a note: ‘Your due date was December 25th.
‘Our gift came early that year, December 15th. But you also left us early, too early.
Khloe and Lamar tied the knot in 2009, just four weeks after meeting but cracks began emerging earlier this year when various women came forward to claim affairs with him.
Now Lamar is said to be more concerned by getting his career back on track and is planning to put all his energy into getting signed by his former team, the LA Clippers.
Khloe – who has been linked to baseball star Matt Kemp - filed for divorce from Lamar after four years of marriage on Friday citing irreconcilable differences.
The reality star, 29, who is being represented by sister Kim's former attorney Laura Wasser, asked to have Odom dropped from her surname, according to TMZ.
The couple reportedly have an 'ironclad' prenup and the beauty is asking for no spousal support from the NBA player, 34. She wants the judge to reject any of the former Lakers' requests for support as well.
Khloe has not been spotted with her ring on since November 22 while Lamar has not been photographed since November 28.
Once she is single again, Khloe will remain as the beneficiary on a $10 million life insurance policy Lamar has according to RadarOnline.
However, legal ace Lisa Myer, who drew up the prenup, will not represent her during the divorce.
The final straw was said to have come for Khloe when a bizarre freestyle rap video of her spouse openly bragged about cheating on her was posted online on November 22.
