Lamar Odom has finally decided to open up about his failed marriage with Khloe Kardashian in his new tell-all book. Speaking to US Weekly, the former NBA player revealed what led to his decision of writing the book. “I”m very excited to work with BenBella Books, Inc. to release my very first book!" he said, adding that he wanted to come clean with his fans and let the world know who he is as a person.
"My fans have always been the best and I really wanted to release this book to give you all a chance to get to know Lamar Odom and my real story, directly from me,” he said. “I hope to [be] an inspiration to many that you can overcome adversity and challenge no matter where you fall from.” The book is believed to cover topics such as his battle with drugs, his career in NBA, and his marriage to Khloe.
Lamar was hospitalized in October 2015 after for a near-fatal drug overdose at a Nevada brothel. During this Khloe was always by his side. Lamar admitted to the magazine that Khloe played a major role in making sure that he was clean and stayed away from drugs. “Hell, yeah [I was surprised she was at my side]. She played a major role in me getting my memory back,” he admitted. “She would bring pictures of my mother and grandmother."
The pair met each other in August 2009 and saw an instant connection. It was a matter of three weeks and the pair decided to take their relationship to the next level as they planned on getting married. Even though the news came as a shock to The Kardashian-Jenner family, they welcomed Lamar into their lives with open arms. The pair said their 'I dos' in a lavish wedding where they were surrounded by their close friends and family.
The two spent a lot of time together and became the center of attention at various red carpet events. Khloe was also spotted cheering for Lamar during his games. The couple became a favorite instantly that E! decided to give them their own tv show titled 'Khloé & Lamar'. The show focused on their life and how the couple stayed together despite people thinking they would break up soon because they decided to get married just weeks after meeting.
In 2012, many rumors started swirling in which suggested that the couple had hit rock bottom and one among the many reasons had been Khloe's fertility issues. However, they denied it at that time. As their show projected their hardship in personal life, various rumors suggested that Lamar had cheated on the Kardashian. However, the couple soon filed for a divorce in December 2013. But even after all these years, the two seem to have made it through as they remain good friends.
Khloe, as we see has moved on to Tristan Thompson a Cavaliers player. She now has a daughter with him, however, here too the relationship has been marred by a cheating scandal and Khloe hasn't said 'I do' to Tristan as yet.
