Lamar Odom couldn’t help but think he truly made it in Hollywood after having dinner with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
The former NBA star was romantically involved with Taraji P. Henson in 2009. The couple went for dinner with Henson’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” co-star Pitt and the latter’s wife Jolie the night of the Golden Globes, Odom shares in his new memoir Darkness to Light.
“That was amazing that night,” Odom reflects, according to Daily Mail. He could not help but think to himself, “you made it.” Afterwards, he found himself sitting “right next” to Forest Whitaker at the Golden Globes.
Odom, now 39, also admits to cheating on Henson. “She was just such a wise woman that she could see through whatever smooth act I was trying to put on,” he writes. “She refused to be just another conquest, and truthfully, I didn’t want her to be.”
“Things were amazing, but of course, God gave me a layup and I blew it,” Odom exclaims. The former basketball player went on to marry Khloe Kardashian. Their marriage ended due in large part to Odom’s infidelity.
