Lamar Odom Has Shared The Shocking Story Of The ‘Lowest Point’ Of His Marriage To Khloe Kardashian
The former NBA star details his drug addiction and infidelities in his new memoir.
Khloe and Lamar met in 2009 and were married within a month – things started to go wrong in 2011 into their union, when Khloe discovered that Lamar had been cheating on her and struggling with a drug addiction.
She filed for divorce in 2013, but when Lamar had a near-fatal overdose two years later, Khloe paused the divorce proceedings to help him make a full recovery. The divorce was finalised in 2017 (and Khloe celebrated with a giant cake decorated like a driver’s licence).
Neither of them have shared much about what happened during those dark years – but in his new memoir Darkness To Light, Lamar lays it all bare.
Describing his drug abuse as “toxic, like unleashing a demon”, he says he managed to keep it from Khloe for a long time. “I was a professional at hiding it… You don’t want your wife to know that you’re sniffing coke and having sex with other women,” he writes.
The “lowest point” in their marriage arrived when Khloe walked in on him doing drugs with friends, after which he threatened to kill her.
Khloe came down and knocked on the door. I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders. “What the f**k are you doing?” I screamed, out of my mind. “You trying to embarrass me in front of my friends? I’ll f**king kill you! You don’t know what I’m capable of!”
“It was a new low for our relationship and my life… the most regrettable moment in a series of regrettable moments,” he recalled in an interview with Good Morning America. “I’m pretty sure she had to be scared at that point in time. I’m thinking about it now, like, I couldn’t believe how I was treating that queen like that.”
Lamar admitted he’s never apologised to his ex-wife for that specific act, adding that he owes the whole family an apology “big time”.
Khloe and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family have yet to respond to the claims made by Lamar in his memoir.
