She received bling from Lamar Odom years ago.
And it doesn’t seem like Khloe Kardashian needs the professional basketball player for diamond-encrusted jewelry.
The 35-year-old reality star took to Instagram on Thursday to share a selfie while showing off a few new pieces of jewelry.

Out for the year: This comes after her ex Lamar Odom, 39, was deactivated from Ice Cube’s BIG3 basketball league for the rest of the 2019 season on Wednesday in what league officials called an effort to improve ‘the level of competition’
The post comes amid news that her ex-husband Odom had been deactivated from Ice Cube’s BIG3 basketball league for the rest of the 2019 season in what league officials called an effort to improve ‘the level of competition.’
The 39-year-old athlete took to his Instagram to share a throwback photo of himself in uniform for the University of Rhode Island as he expressed how ‘disappointed and embarrassed’ he was about the entire situation.
Lamar wrote: ‘As most of you have heard, the @thebig3 decided to deactivate me for the remainder of the 2019 season. I respect @icecube & the other league executives, however, I am extremely disappointed with the way that this has been handled.
‘Besides the embarrassment, it’s disappointing to read on IG that this decision had been made, especially without sharing it with myself or my manager. Only after I heard from the media, I was then told that the big boys cutting checks decided that they had to deactivate me with no real specific explanation.’
‘TMZ apparently did manage to get a clear answer from Ice Cube, “my health was their concern.” I have been 100% transparent about my condition before signing the contract, but at that point it wasn’t an issue.’

He goes on to say that he had been told from the beginning that he would be allowed extra time to play himself into shape and that he has been working toward that.
Odom said that he is remaining positive and that he has no ill will toward the 3-on-3 basketball league while asking that his fans not show them any negativity either.
On Wednesday sources told TMZ that the athlete/reality star was not in playing shape, and worried about how he would do in competition.
The Queens, New York native had been a member of the Enemies, along with former NBA superstar Gilbert Arenas. Odom had scored two points and grabbed four rebounds in two games.

The ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian is less than four years removed from falling into a coma after a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel, and the extensive road to recovery he faced battling for his health in the aftermath.
The 6ft10 forward was a two-time NBA champion, playing with both Los Angeles franchises, the Clippers and Lakers, for the bulk of his career.
Other notable names who were sidelined in the same series of transactions included Baron Davis, 40, Jermaine O’Neal, 40, and Bonzi Wells, 42.
Davis said in a tweet: ‘I have decided to no longer participate in the @thebig3 I don’t feel it is in my best interest to play, all love to the guys, stay connected and protect yourselves. @icecube good looking and best of luck!!’

O’Neal replied in the comment section to a league announcement of the moves, writing, ‘What is this??? Are y’all going to explain this or do I need to??’
The league noted that Glen Davis, 33, is set to be fined for his conduct in play last week after he pulled off his jersey and tossed it into the stands following his ejection from a game.
The moves were done ‘to maximize competition, protect the health of players and to raise the level of the professionalism of the BIG3,’ according to the league.
