Lamar Odom and his baby blue suit sat down for a very candid interview today on the “Wendy Williams Show.” The recovering addict (who seems to be in a really good place now) shed light on his tumultuous journey from being an NBA superstar to learning how to walk and talk again after a drug overdose.
Earlier this year, the former NBA star revealed he wanted his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian back during an appearance on “The Doctors.” But now? Not, so much. And that really is for the best.
When Wendy asked Lamar if Khloe, who’s currently dating NBA player Tristan Thompson, were to try and come back in his life for another round, he quickly responded (barely letting her finish the question), “No,” and said it with conviction.
Shedding light on the beginning of their relationship, he said he met Khloe at a Ron Artest party. Thirty days later he proposed and they got married on national television.
“I fell in love,” he said.
He said when he first met her, he didn’t know who she was. “I was Lamar Odom,” he responded.
As we all know, Lamar almost died after a drug overdose while inside of a Nevada brothel. He woke up in a coma not know how to talk or talk again.
“I woke up in a coma, I don’t know if I spent more than a day there. I don’t think so.”
When Wendy asked if he was high that night he said he hadn’t taken any drugs that night.
“I think that was God trying to talk to me to get me to stop doing what I was doing because I didn’t take any drugs that night.”
He said he didn’t do drugs, despite the toxicology report revealing there was cocaine in his system.
“OK, but I didn’t,” he responded.
As for his relationship with Kanye West, he hasn’t seen or spoke to him since he popped up at his Madison Square Garden concert in February 2016.
“It’s been a minute…since that day right there,” pointing to a picture of himself and ‘Ye at the concert.
However, he did confirm Yeezy came by the hospital and played some of his music for him when he woke up from the coma.
The 6’10 former NBA star also said he hasn’t spoken to his former brother-in-law Rob Kardashian in a very long time.
“We were close. He has a child. I haven’t met his child [Dream Kardashian] or anything.”
Peep the clip below:
He said he’s sober now, however he did admit to drinking still. And he called that incident where he allegedly got kicked off a plane for being drunk “bullsh*t.”
These days, he’s thinking about being a part-time coach for the Lakers and he also said he would consider doing reality TV again in hopes of helping other people with addiction. As for his financial situation: He’s still got loads of money in the bank.
