Lamar Odom's friend Bobby Heyward has passed away.

We can't even begin to comprehend what Lamar Odom must be going through.

Last Sunday, the basketball star lost his friend Jamie Sangouthai to a flesh-eating disease caused by drug use. And now, he unfortunately has to say goodbye to another friend, as the result of drug abuse.

Bobby Heyward passed away on Saturday, and reports are saying a drug overdose is to blame.

Tragically, his last Instagram post (above) was a touching tribute to Jamie's death. He even captioned the sentimental shot:

As we previously reported, Lamar Odom's longtime friend Jamie Sangouthai passed away on Sunday.

However, it seems that Jamie did not die from an overdose as it was initially thought — rather he passed from a flesh eating disease caused by drug use.

The disease, necrotizing fasciitis, is a bacterial skin infection that can be caused by using dirty needles with IV drug abuse. The coroner reports that the disease can spread quickly and often becomes life threatening.

The 37-year-old was close friends with both Lamar and Khloe Kardashian.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has certainly struggled with the loss — as she also recently lost friend and rapper, Chinx back in May.

On Tuesday the starlet took to Instagram to share a touching message with her fans:

It was a family affair on Monday for North West's Disneyland birthday celebration, but we couldn't help but notice one of her aunties was missing.

While Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West brought their two-year-old to the happiest place on Earth for her big day, Khloé Kardashian opted out.

Sources say the 30-year-old passed on the magical day because she was still reeling from the sudden loss of ex Lamar Odom's best friend Jamie Sangouthai.

The 37-year-old passed away from a drug overdose, and the insider says that's why Khloé was too sad to go to Disney with her family. The source explained:

"Khloé was too upset over Jamie dying. She wasn't there."

When she found out the devastating news on Sunday, the heartbroken reality star took to Twitter to share her sadness:

Jamie had been best bros with Lamar since high school, and he even appeared on the series Khloé and Lamar.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible loss.

It's never easy.

Yesterday, Jamie Christopher Sangouthai, one of Lamar Odom's best friends passed away from a drug overdose.

Jamie was quite close with Lamar going back to their High School days together. Both men not only shared a long friendship but they worked together professionally as well on some business deals and both had a great love of basketball.

Some of this brotherly love was even on display during the short lived Khloe & Lamar show. Jamie was also known to have been friends with some of the Kardashians for several years as well and was one of Lamar's best men during his televised wedding to Khloe Kardashian.

Sangouthai was 37-years-old when he passed and sources report that he may have died from a heroin overdose.

Shortly after the news broke, Khloe took to twitter to send out her condolences and tweeted:

Sigh, there's so much speculation on whether or not Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are going to get back together.

And it's not to say it won't happen because clearly Lam Lam and KoKo want to work it out! It's just… nothing has been really happening between the two.

Especially since their divorce has been stalled for the longest time. So long that back in April, a judge threatened to dismiss the petition because the 35-year-old didn't sign the paperwork.
