Update: Lamar Odom’s Bestfriend Dies Of An Apparent Drug Overdose

Yesterday we reported that Lamar Odom’s best friend, Jamie Sangouthai tragically passed away. 

News first hit social media about Jamie’s death via Khloe Kardashian and her bestfriend Malika Haqq:



Well according to TMZ, following a 911 call, Jamie was rushed to a downtown LA hospital on Sunday because of an apparent heroin overdose. He died while at the hospital.

If you’ve been keeping up with the Kardashians on E network then you most likely would have known Jamie. Khloe and other friends of Jamie believe that he was an instrumental part in Lamar Odom’s crack binge two years prior. Jamie, who had also openly talked about his drug addiction battle on Khloe and Lamar’s show, was also diagnosed with the digestive disease diverticulitis in 2008.

Our condolences go out to Jamie’s family and friends. There has been no word from Lamar Odom or Rob Kardashian on the tragedy.
