Lamar Odom appeared on the show “THE Doctors”, where he opened up about his battle with addiction and how it affected his relationship with his family. He also mentioned that he was grateful to his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian for supporting him during this difficult time and recovery, and said that he wants his ex-wife back.
The former NBA basketball player fresh off a 30-day stint in rehab talked about his journey of recovery. He stated that he was in a dark place back in 2015, and that he was looking forward to living a healthy life and more importantly getting his wife back.
He also talked about how his addiction prevented him from spending the time with his children, and how his recovery has allowed him to fix their relationship. Lamar explained that drugs made him numb to a lot of things, including his feelings, so he didn’t have a close connection to his family. He made it clear that his relationship with his children was the most important thing to him.
He said that Khloe is very important to him and he is absolutely grateful to her that she stood right by him at that time and he wants to pay her back. There’s only one problem, Khloe filed for a divorce, got it finalized, and now has a new man in her life, NBA superstar Tristan Thomas.
Lamar was also asked what he would tell Khloe and his other family members if he could. He said he would tell them that he is sorry for all the wasted time and energy. He didn’t know who he was when he was addicted, so he couldn’t take care of himself, and definitely couldn’t take care of anyone around him.
It’s good to see that Lamar can be open about his past struggles. We hope he continues on this path.
