In a recent conversation with ET, Lamar Odom opened up about his current relationship with ex-wife Khloe Kardashian. Odom married the KUWTK alum in 2009, and the couple subsequently separated in 2016. Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013 due to Odom’s drug abuse issues reaching an unbearable point in 2015 when Odom accidentally he overdosed and went into a coma for four days.
During the interview, the former professional basketball player revealed that he is no longer in contact with the founder of Good American. Odom expressed his understanding of the situation, adding: “It would be a blessing to be in his presence, but I understand that it happened and people are moving on with their lives.” He went on to add that at this point, even being able to remain friends with him and have a platonic relationship would be a “blessing.”
Meanwhile, Odom had recently appeared on the reality show Celebrity Big Brother. Odom admitted that he was constantly asked about Khloe on the show. He went on to add that it is impossible to “ever forget” a person who helped him at a time when he needed them most despite their separation, saying: “Every time a woman supports you after making such a big mistake and it’s there for you when I couldn’t walk, talk or even wipe my butt…” After Odom’s 2015 overdose, Khloé put their divorce on hold and helped him get back on his feet.
Odom commented, “I don’t think you can ever get over that person, especially if you marry this person after 30 days of knowing each other.”
