Lamar Odom has spoken openly for the first time about his failed marriage to Khloe Kardashian and his relationship with the rest of the Kardashian family.
Lamar and Khloe famously tied the knot in 2009 after just one month of dating. However, their relationship took a drastic turn when Lamar started doing drugs. His drug habit would eventually land him at death’s door and ultimately led to the couple’s divorce.
The former NBA star appeared on the ‘Wendy Williams Show’ on Wednesday, and opened up about his marriage to Khloe and what his relationship with the rest of the Kardashians is like now.
When asked whether or not he would get back together with Khloe, Lamar had this to say:
“No. I say that with no offense to her—that would be the best for both of us you know what I’m saying…We have to keep our distance,” he said.
He continued, acknowledging that Khloe is in a relationship with Tristan Thompson.
“They seem happy together…good for them,” he said.
Host Wendy Williams then went on to ask him what he thinks of Khloe’s body transformation since they split up (the reality star notably lost a lot of weight and got into shape after her marriage to Lamar crumbled).
Lamar said that she does look great but that ‘she [has] always been beautiful to me’.
During their marriage, Lamar was very close with Khloe’s brother, Rob, who lived with them at the time.
“[Rob] has a child – I haven’t met his child yet or anything,” he said. When asked why they haven’t spoken in a while, Lamar said:
“I guess it’s maybe because I hurt his sister too much…I would have a problem with me too…I mean if she was my sister”.
Lamar is currently getting his life on track after being in and out of rehab since he recovered from his coma.
