Lamar Odom Opens Up About Relationship With Khloe Kardashian, Admits He Almost Killed Her
Odom's new memoir is called 'Darkness to Light'.
While most relationships have their fair share of ups and downs, no relationship in recent history is quite as memorable as that of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's. The pair were married just a month after meeting at a party for one of Odom's teammates and even had their own reality spin-off series for a couple of seasons. As most people know by now, Khloe and Lamar's relationship fell apart almost as easily as it came together, and now, Lamar Odom talks about marriage to Khloe Kardashian in his new book Darkness to Light.
Especially during the last few years of their relationship, Odom developed a substance abuse problem, regularly indulging in the use of drugs like cocaine and ecstasy. Odom's drug use was well hidden by his wife and anyone else who knew - Khloe refused to talk about her husband's strange behaviour on camera or with other members of her family.
In his new memoir Darkness to Light, Odom recalls a time when he was high on multiple substances, hallucinating in his home. When his wife found him, she proceeded to call his friends to help her get Odom under control. When he realized that people had been informed of the situation, Odom freaked out.
“Khloé came down and knocked on the door. I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders, which frightened her. ‘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!’”
Shortly after the incident, Odom begged his wife for forgiveness, but the pair knew that their relationship had reached a new low. As far as Odom's book goes, a source close to Khloe says that she hasn't read it yet, and we're not sure that she ever will. She's busy focusing on her co-parenting relationship with Tristan Thompson, and daughter True.
Odom and Kardashian were married in September of 2009, and Kardashian filed for divorce in December of 2013. She withdrew the papers to be with Lamar in his time of need after his horrendous 2015 overdose but filed again in 2016 and the pair were divorced by the end of the year.
