Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian's close friend Jamie Sangouthai died from a bacterial skin infection related to drug use, the LA County coroner confirmed to multiple publications.
The 37-year-old died on Sunday, and while some outlets initially claimed he died of a drug overdose, the Coroner told Page Six, Sangouthai died from necrotizing fasciitis, a rare flesh eating disease that was caused by injections from dirty needles.
Sangouthai appeared on a 2009 episode of the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and made regular appearances on the spinoff series "Khloe & Lamar," during which his struggle with drugs was highlighted.
