Lamar Odom Recalls Moment He Threatened To Kill Khloe Kardashian
Maybe it felt like we all had a front row seat to KhloMar’s drama back when they were married, but rest assured there was a lot more going on behind the scenes than anyone could have guessed.
In his new memoir Darkness to Light, Lamar Odom admits that he once threatened to kill ex-wife Khloe Kardashian. He was reportedly high on cocaine and ecstasy and upset that Khloe had called his friends for help when he began to hallucinate.
From Us Weekly:
“Khloé came down and knocked on the door. I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders, which frightened her,” he writes. “‘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!’”
Frustrated, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star ran upstairs and slammed the door. Later on, the basketball player asked his wife for forgiveness.
“I was embarrassed and ashamed,” he recalls. “It was a new low for our relationship and my life … the most regrettable moment in a series of regrettable moments.”
Elsewhere, Lamar reportedly spoke about the time Khloe put their divorce on hold to stand by his side after he overdosed at a Nevada brothel. According to Lam Lam, Khloe wasn’t so nice to his family when they attempted to visit him in the hospital.
“I had cousins and childhood friends waiting for hours who got bumped out of line by my famous sisters-in-law,” he wrote. “Obviously, I had no idea what was going on. This was Khloe’s call, and she had never even met most of my family.” Odom also noted one incident that occurred with Kris when his Aunt JaNean was finally given access to visit him with his children, Lamar Jr. and Destiny.
“When JaNean left my room, she went to the waiting area on the other side of the glass partition and took an open seat: the very seat Kris Jenner had been sitting in for hours,” he wrote. “When Kris got back from the restroom, she approached JaNean. ‘That’s my seat,’ said Kris.” Then Khloe stepped in to kick JaNean out of the waiting room.
“Y’all not his family!” Lamar said his aunt shouted at the women. Unlike the others who would just fold out of intimidation, Aunt JaNean apparently wasn’t having it. “The ‘f**k yous’ and ‘b****es’ were flying in every direction,” he said of his aunt’s rant.
