Traffic between droplet and K8s cluster trough Private IP

I’ve a K8s cluster with a Load Balancer to access a service inside the cluster. I have another service running in a normal Digital Ocean droplet.

The cluster node IPs doesn’t respond to curl nor ping (as expected). Is there any way to have the Load Balancer with a Private IP (that I know it does have). So I can point the service in my droplet to make the HTTP request to the private IP Load Balancer instead of the Public one?

To do this, you may need to create your own load balancer as opposed to using ours. Our load balancers are not currently built to be customized in any way.
