Lamar Odom has once again decided to talk about his issues and his problems with drug abuse. However, he also decided to talk about his former marriage to Khloe Kardashian, and claimed that he had numerous affairs during that time.
So, during a new interview with US Weekly, Lamar talked about his life during his marriage to Khloe. He claimed that back then he was abusing drugs and was cheating on his wife. Soon, these issues led to his separation from Khloe, but also to the end of his career in the NBA. “I was hiding it for a while,” Lamar began his confession about his drug addiction.
He went on to add that Khloe caught him getting drugged. “Around two years before we split up [in 2011], I was in the man cave she had made for me and she caught me. She was disappointed. So was I,” he said. “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. She knew I was doing cocaine the whole time after that. It was my drug of choice. I’m not going to say she accepted it because that would be the wrong word. Tolerated would be a better word.”
Lamar also claimed that his marriage to Khloe actually made him more desirable and in fact this was something that brought him more fame and made him look more exciting. However, Lamar claimed that the one thing that he regrets when it comes to his marriage is cheating on his former wife. Khloe separated from Lamar because of his issues and the former NBA star started to deal with even more problems after that.
“That’s where me and my friend Jamie [Sangouthai], God bless the dead, turned the drug use up to another level,” he said of the moment when Khloe left him. “The ‘don’t give a f**k’ place. 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. My life was all about drugs at that point.”
Lamar also praised Khloe for being by his side during his recovery. He claimed that she actually played a “major role in me getting my memory back.”
