After all of the headlines, Lamar Odom is finally opening up about his life, his wife, and how everything took a drastic turn one night in Las Vegas.
In a new interview with UsWeekly, Odom, 37, shares that he was hiding his drug use from wife Khloe Kardashian for a while. Eventually, before the pair split in 2011, she caught him using. “She was disappointed. So was I. The sad thing about it is, I don’t know if I was disappointed because I was actually doing the drug or because she caught me,” he revealed.
Odom admits that cocaine was his “drug of choice” and that Khloe was aware of it. While she didn’t approve, he says she tolerated his behaviour.
It all changed for the former NBA star when he married Khloe. “People who didn’t even know basketball would approach me because they knew Lammy… If there is one thing I regret when I was married, it was having multiple affairs with different women. That wasn’t the stand-up thing to do. I wish I could have kept my d**k in my pants” he said.
After he and Khloe split, his problems only got worse. “I was in a very dark place and very confrontational. I wasn’t trying to repair my marriage; I was just trying to get high,” Odom admitted.
At that point, his life was solely about doing drugs. “It probably helped the end of my career come along a little faster because drugs killed my drive to want to train and be in shape. It killed that and my sex drive. The only time you can f**k is when you take coke,” he confessed.
Odom also revealed what actually happened on that fateful day at the brothel. In 2015, Odom was found unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada and ended up in the hospital. According to him, he just fell asleep.
“I was home by myself. Bored. I wanted to get out and have a good time. Looking back, I might have had a drink to get the mood started, but was I drunk or on drugs? Not at all. I remember lying in bed. Two women were in bed and then I fell asleep. That’s all. When I woke up four days later, I was trying to pull the tubes out of my mouth,” he said of the incident.
