(VIDEO) Lamar Odom blasts the so-called Kardashian ‘curse’

Lamar Odom blasted the so-called Kardashian “curse” and said he’s “lucky” to even be associated with the famous family.

The former NBA player, who married Khloé Kardashian in 2009 before their highly public divorce, said that people are “dumbasses” if they believe there’s a “curse” on exes of the Kardashian-Jenner women.

“That’s stupidity because everybody goes through s–t. If I had your family on tape, and see all the s–t your family was going through, people would be like, ‘This f–king family is crazy!’” Odom said to “Vlad TV.”

The 41-year-old, who has spoken openly about being both a drug addict and a sex addict, said people see the happy times along with the struggles because the Kardashians are so open about their lives.

“People would see all the drug addicts, all the sex, they share their life with you, so you see everything,” Odom said. “Maybe it’s overexposed, but people love it. The people that made them are the ones who point the fingers. It’s kind of sickening. I’ve lived it from the inside in, to the outside.”

He added that it’s “hard” to figure out the love-hate relationship fans have with the powerhouse family, but admitted he’s just “lucky enough to have some of that stardust fall off on me.”

Khloé, 36, first filed for divorce from Odom in 2013, but paused proceedings until 2016 so he could fully recover from his near-fatal overdose at a Las Vegas brothel.

In recent days, Odom, 41, has been embroiled in drama with his ex-fiancée Sabrina Parr — which had him longing for simpler times, so he filled the void by watching a “Khloé & Lamar” marathon.

“This is the Lamar and Khloe marathon so I just wanted to give a shout-out to E! for giving me the opportunity, a shout-out to my ex-wife, Kris Jenner, Kim [Kardashian], for giving me the opportunity,” he shared.

“I’ll never forget the day I got married on TV,” he continued. “I get a little bit emotional watching it.”

Still keeping up! Lamar Odom shared a video of himself watching old episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on Wednesday, March 3, revealing that he’s grateful for the opportunity to be on the show.

“My show with my ex wife ❤️ I want to thank @krisjenner @khloekardashian @kimkardashian @robkardashianofficial @kourtneykardash for taking me in and loving me without judgement,” Odom, 41, captioned the Instagram video. “Y’all gave me family and for that I am forever grateful 🙏🏾❤️ Thanks @eentertainment for the marathon. #Thankful #Grateful #Blessed #LamarOdom #Lakers #Family #Love #Growth #Sober #Rebirth #Happy #RealityShow #Hit #FinalSeason #AmericanRoyalty.”

During the video, he added, “It’s crazy [how] time flies,” before thanking Khloé Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and E! for the opportunity to “crossover” into reality TV.

“I’ll never forget that I got married on TV,” he said. “I get a little bit emotional watching it.”

The athlete recently opened up exclusively to Us Weekly about his time on the show and noted that he’s “surprised” the upcoming season will be the last.

“Everything that started has an ending,” he told Us last month. “You know, they have a pretty tight-knit family, and I’m pretty sure that they came to that decision together. Of course, at this time, we all know that we really have to do what’s best for us. And if they feel like that’s best for them, then they have my full support.”

Odom also shared how he feels about Khloé as a mother. She shares 2-year-old daughter True with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

“I would love to remain her friend. I would love that,” he told Us. “If she was able to take care of a 29-year-old man, I know she’d be great with the baby. I’m proud of her and I wish her well, as far as being a mother.”

Lamar Odom Hits Back At Haters Who Accused Him of Comparing New Girlfriend to Khloe Kardashian

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Lamar Odom has made his relationship with personal trainer Sabrina Parr public[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Lamar Odom is feeling very happy with his new relationship.

One day after becoming Instagram official with girlfriend Sabrina Parr, the former NBA star, 39, shared an appreciative post about the personal trainer, captioning the message with a quote from Malcolm X.

“It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong, what do you do? You integrate it with cream… But if you pour too much cream in it, you won’t even know you ever had coffee,” reads the quote. “It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak It used to wake you up, now it puts you to sleep.”

Alongside the quote, he also added the hashtag “Black Royalty,” which Parr, who is also a health and life coach, used on Saturday to caption a photo of Odom.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”18209″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Hours later, Odom shared another photo of Parr as he clarified that his earlier post was meant to celebrate Parr and black women in general, and not make any kind of comment about his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian.

“I’m a bit disappointed to read that people are using my words to enforce their own perceptions and assumptions pointing towards things that are not MY TRUTH OR REALITY,” he wrote, referencing some of the comments he had received. “This post isn’t against anyone including my ex wife that I still respect deeply.”

“I am just PRO love. Can I do that without people feeling offended?” he added. “Why does that make you mad? Our black women have been held down for centuries! I am now deciding to send them and my NEW WOMAN a lot of love.”

Continuing, Odom wrote: “My post goes out to the new leading woman in my life, that I’m gonna tell everyday how beautiful she is, from the inside out. Thanks @getuptoparr for teaching me what real self value means. It changed my entire mindset.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

“She sent me a text yesterday,” Odom says in a new interview with Jenny McCarthy.

While Khloe Kardashian hasn’t commented publicly about Lamar Odom’s new tell-all and the claims he made about their relationship in it, she apparently has reached out to him about one of the book’s more shocking stories.

Khloe Kardashian Fansite evesarkisyan_60835442_301620287385364_3498801142086060426_n What Khloe Kardashian Texted Lamar Odom yesterday? Speaking with Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM show on Wednesday, Odom revealed his ex-wife texted him yesterday, after the memoir’s release.

Um, she sent me a text yesterday,” the athlete said, after he was asked if he knew how Khloe felt about the book.

“She good, she talked about one of the stories I told in the book. About her coming to the hotel and putting her hands on the girl. She said she didn’t even think I remembered that story.”

He characterized the exchange as “friendly.”

In the book, “Darkness to Light,” Odom claimed he “had broken my vows with Khloe so many times” before Kardashian started checking his Black Card statements. One night, he said she tracked his movements to the Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood, where he was shacked up with two strippers and a lot of drugs.

Khloe Kardashian Fansite giphy What Khloe Kardashian Texted Lamar Odom yesterday?

Around midnight, there was a “pounding” at the door — and on the other side was Khloe, Kris Jenner and their security team. “Khloe opened the door and pounced on the first girl she saw,” said Lamar.

“Try to imagine the scene: Khloe’s beating the shit out of one of the girls who tried to protest. She’s dropping vicious blows all over the top of this girl’s head,” he claimed. “Kris is screaming and her security guard jumps in and pulls Khloe off the beaten stripper. Khloe tells me to gather up my things, and the guards quickly remove all traces of the drugs. We sneak out of a back door of the Roosevelt and disappear into the night.”

Speaking with McCarthy, he said he hoped they continue to keep the lines of communication open. “The next house I buy, hopefully she can decorate it,”  “They’re amazing decorators, they’re amazing homemakers.”he added.

Khloe Kardashian Fansite 0806341a4a3f37ae657c30ca2e785559 What Khloe Kardashian Texted Lamar Odom yesterday?

“She’s an incredible person and she’ll always have a place in my heart and be dear to me,” he said, also calling her the love of his life. “She’s extremely courageous and tough and strong.”

The two tied the knot in 2009, just one month after they met at a Hollywood party. When asked why they moved so quickly, Odom said, “Love is strange, man.” He added, “I love my family with all my heart, but that’s how I knew she was the one because no one could tell me no, I wasn’t getting married to Khloe. It would have been real easy for me to say, don’t ever call me again, that’s how strong it was.”

 

He explained to McCarthy that the marriage did put a strain on his relationship with his two kids, who he shares with Liza Morales.

“It took some time for their mother to come around, just like it took some time for my family to come around,” he said. “My immediate family really didn’t support me and Khloe getting married. I don’t know if it was because of who she was, how fast it was or maybe they didn’t feel like they were being involved, they didn’t really click. It took some time for my kids to come over to my house and spend some time with us in California.”

While Jenny claimed she had a confidentiality agreement with Jim Carrey when they were together, Odom said the same wasn’t true for him and Khloe. He also said he’ll “always have a soft spot” for Kris — even though he had some less-than-positive things to say about her in his book — and said his relationship to Rob Kardashian was a brotherly one.

When asked if he’s spoken to the latter lately, he said, “Nah, in some ways I expect it, the way I treated his sister.”

 

Khloe Kardashian Fansite lamar-odom-jenny-mccarthy What Khloe Kardashian Texted Lamar Odom yesterday? Khloe was there for Lamar when he was hospitalized following an overdose at a Nevada brothel, making medical decisions for him even though they were separated. She also helped him get back on his feet after he was released.

“I just learned how to talk and walk, I didn’t know how to express empathy at that time, it was a fog,” he explained, when asked why they still couldn’t make it work. “She moved me into a house in Calabasas in the same community that she lived in and that probably was my time. I didn’t know how to go about that. Maybe I was shameful, probably a lot of subconscious things going on in my head at the time. It really wasn’t that long ago, but it seems so distant.”

He added he “[wakes] up hoping” for another chance with Khloe, but told McCarthy she’d “probably have to ask” his ex-wife how she feels in return.

Odom also thanked Kanye West for helping “wake my soul up with his music” while in the hospital, adding that he was “forever grateful to him for that.”

Odom’s memoir, “Darkness to Light” is available now.

It’s no secret that Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s four-year marriage was incredibly tumultuous and eventually ended in divorce in 2016.

The pair met and married within a month back in 2009, but things went badly wrong in 2011 when Lamar started abusing drugs and cheating on Khloé.

And while we know the vague details of his drug use and infidelity, the pair have never spoken in depth about what exactly happened during their marriage.
But now Lamar has released a new memoir, Darkness to Light, and opened up for the first time about the “toxic” effect his drug addiction had on their relationship.

In a serialised passage from his book, Lamar revealed his drug use was “toxic, like unleashing a demon“. He continued: “I was professional at hiding it. Khloé didn’t know for a long time. You don’t want your wife to know that you’re sniffing coke and having sex with other women.”

Lamar went on to discuss the “lowest point” of their marriage — an occasion where he threatened to kill Khloé while high on cocaine and ecstasy.

Lamar revealed that the incident occurred after Khloé walked in on him taking drugs with friends, and he accused her of “embarrassing” him.

He wrote: ” Khloé came down and knocked on the door. I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders, which frightened her. ‘What the fuck are you doing?’ I screamed, out of my mind.”

He then threatened to “fucking kill” Khloé, telling her she “didn’t know what [he] was capable of.”

He wrote: “I said: ‘You trying to embarrass me in front of my friends? I’ll fucking kill you! You don’t know what I’m capable of.'”

Looking back now, Lamar says the incident was the most “regrettable” moment of his life, and something he “[can’t] believe” happened.

 

he wrote: “I was embarrassed and ashamed. It was a new low for our relationship and my life. The most regrettable moment in a series of regrettable moments. I’m pretty sure she had to be scared at that point in time. I’m thinking about it now, like, I couldn’t believe how I was treating that queen like that.”

And Lamar concluded by revealing that he’s never said sorry to Khloé for that specific moment, adding that he “owes her and her family an apology, big time”.

Appearing on “The View” on Tuesday morning to discuss his memoir “Darkness into Light,” Odom said that despite his struggle with sex and drug addiction, he hopes the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star can remain in his life.

“When I look at Khloe, it’s like seeing my mother in her eyes,” Odom said. “I think that was why I was able to marry her.”

In the face of infidelity, addictions and separations the estranged couple has been through together in the spotlight, the two have supported one another beyond their divorce. Odom revealed that he spoke with the Kardashian sister recently, and hopes they “can start over being friends.”

After dating for approximately one month, Odom and Kardashian wed in a private Beverly Hills estate in Sept. 2009. Less than five years later, in 2013, Kardashian filed for divorce.

But she initially withdrew the paperwork a year later after Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada and hospitalized. Their separation became official in Dec. 2016.

“I lost my angel,” Odom said of his ex-wife. “It was like asinine. It was like losing your mother again.”

Odom does not blame the intense fame he attracted after marrying into the Kardashian’s empire for his addiction spiraling out of control.

“For a little bit, I handled it well because it kept me on point. It kept me on my A-game,” he said. “But then, as more popularity grew and the show grew, then, like, women just started to come out of nowhere.”

Besides having his children, the stardom he found on the show “was the most important part of my adult life,” he said. The importance for him lays in “having everything,” including a “strong family,” he says.

“I don’t think they get credit for that enough” he said of the Kardashian family’s resilience. “If you’ve been through what they’ve been through on a public stage and still as tight as they are, it’s way past the money with them.”

Sitting down with the co-hosts of the “The View,” Odom spoke frankly about what addiction has meant for him.

“When you’re a professional, and you’re an athlete and you’re addicted to drugs you become a professional liar,” he said. “Because that’s the one thing you don’t want anyone to know: your deepest darkest secrets.”

“You don’t make rational decisions. I was an addict and I had to come forward to that and admit that,” he said.

Darkness to Light by Lamar Odom

“I wish I could have been more of a man,” Lamar Odom tells PEOPLE about cheating on ex-wife Khloé Kardashian

It’s been over five years since Lamar Odom split from Khloé Kardashian after a tumultuous four-year marriage, but the NBA champion says he still has regrets about how things turned out.

In his new memoir, Darkness to Light — exclusively excerpted in PEOPLE — Odom reveals the truth about his marriage to Kardashian, which was chronicled on Keeping up with the Kardashians and on their spinoff series, Khloé and Lamar.

Continues Odom in the book: “On Tuesday morning, I lay on the floor in my room at the Ranch, dying. My body was convulsing. The women who kept me company screamed and called 911. I was taken to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. There was an unholy concoction of cocaine, cognac and cannabis coursing through my veins. My heart stopped twice. I had twelve seizures and six strokes. My lungs collapsed and my kidneys ruptured. I was on life support. Everyone I’d ever loved was looking at me through bleary eyes.”

“Waking up [on Oct. 16], I was pulling the tubes out of my throat,” he tells PEOPLE. “And I was trying to talk but I couldn’t get the words out. That was the scariest part. And not being able to walk. I’m a big athlete you know?”

“Khloé never left my side,” Odom writes. “She didn’t shower for days. Kim’s resiliency was incredible too. They put chairs together for her to sleep across at night.”

“I wish I could have been more of a man,” Odom, who admits that he was unfaithful to Kardashian and also hid from her his addiction to cocaine, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.”

Odom also reveals that he cheated on Kardashian throughout their marriage; she eventually discovered the

Khloe Kardashian Fansite lamaraodom Lamar Odom Feels Deep Regret About Cheating On and Lying to Ex Khloé Kardashian

infidelities.

“I was shocked and embarrassed,” he tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “I wanted to take it back, but you can’t. [I] wanted to hide it. But that sick sin was hard for me to hide … I had a problem.”

Continues Odom: “[I] ran out of porn to watch! That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard.”

Odom’s addiction to sex was compounded by his addiction to drugs.

“Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs,” he tells PEOPLE. “Because you double up on [that] good feeling.”

Kardashian’s rep did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Despite the acrimonious split — the divorce was finalized in 2016 — Odom, 39, says their whirlwind romance was bliss in the beginning. The couple wed in 2009, just one month after they met.

“For a while, being with her was bliss and I was the happiest I’ve ever been,” Odom writes in his book. “We were one of the most famous couples in Hollywood and we made more money together than we had individually.”

But Odom struggled to fight his addictions to sex and drugs.

“At the start of our marriage I was faithful to her,” he writes. But eventually, he started having affairs, while at the same time hiding a full-blown cocaine addiction.

“I could not handle the lethal cocktail of the spotlight, addiction, a diminishing career and infidelity,” he writes. “Oh, did I mention the paranoia, anxiety, depression. … I couldn’t keep my d— in my pants or the coke out of my nose. Drug addicts are incredibly skilled at hiding their habit. I’d get defensive and Khloé would just drop it.”

The 39-year-old reveals that he has had sex with more than 2,000 women. “There were too many strippers to count,” he writes. “It wasn’t a big deal, but often I would pay them. I never thought less of them.”

Kardashian ultimately learned about the infidelity and the lies and they separated, but she didn’t turn her back on her ex.

When Odom was hospitalized and near death following an overdose in 2015, Kardashian, 34, was by his side.

“I remember waking up and her showing me pictures of my mother,” Odom, whose mother Cathy died of cancer when he was 12, tells PEOPLE. “I was surprised on how quick she was to show her devotion to me.”

Continues Odom: “Her love for me must have been unconditional. That’s the only thing [I think] that gave her the strength to still love me at that time.”

Now, Odom is drug-free, but admits he still struggles with his demons.

When it comes to Kardashian, “I hope we can be friends,” Odom says. “I miss the family. And I hope we can all be reacquainted one day.”

“Rob will be my brother always,” Odom tells PEOPLE. “I miss that family, and I hope we can all be reacquainted one day.”

Now Odom is drug-free, but admits that he’s still working through his demons.

“I’m still an addict,” he writes in his book. “I still struggle … [But] I will not go into the darkness. Ever again.”

There are no hard feelings between Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian. The former NBA star finally opened up about his ex-wife’s pregnancy and he only had good things to say about the expecting KUWTK star — for the most part.

Khloe Kardashian Fansite giphy Lamar Odom Knows Khloé Kardashian Will Be a Good Mom by ‘The Way She Took Care of Me’ “To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person. I was really happy for her,” he told Access Hollywood in an interview airing Monday, Feb. 26.

“I know if she could take care of a grown man for four years the way she took care of me, I know she could take care of a baby.”

 

He playfully added, “That’s gonna be one spoiled a– baby, too.” Khloé is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson and finalized her divorce from Odom in 2016 after five years of marriage.

Previously, Lamar shaded the brunette beauty for her taste in men. I still got [her] name still on me — I mean, her initials still on me. For no reason. I understand when it’s over, it’s over,” he said on the new BET show Mancave last month. “When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”

However, Khloé’s sister Kim Kardashian quickly came to her defense, tweeting, “Or second or third brothel.

Although Odom said of Kardashian’s pregnancy that it “couldn’t happen to a better person,” he admitted to being upset after learning she had faked attempts to get pregnant during their marriage.

“That was hurtful,” Odom said. “But I mean, I was going through some things at the time so I didn’t really take it too personally.”

Lamar Odom recently threw some major shade at his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, during a TV appearance on the new show BET’s Mancave. However, Khlo’s big sister Kim Kardashian was not about to let him get away with it.

  • Khloe filed for divorce from the former NBA player in 2013, but it wasn’t finalized until 2016.

    The cause of the divorce was a combination of Lamar’s severe cocaine addiction and infidelity. Lamar suffered a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel in 2015 and despite the fact that they were already separated for a while, Khloe stuck by his side through his recovery.

    At the time of Lamar’s overdose, Khloe was dating Houston Rockets player James Harden, but they broke up in early 2016. Then, shortly after the divorce was finalized between Khloe and Lamar, Khloe began dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson and they are now expecting a child together.

     

  • In his “Mancave” interview, Lamar dissed Khloe’s dating history.

    He said:

    “I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I can see that.”Ouch!

  • However, Kim was not here for it! After someone tweeted what Lamar said, Kim had an EPIC response!

Khloé Kardashian announced that she’s expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Tristan Thompson right after the new year, and while we can’t wait to meet the little guy, we also couldn’t help but wonder how her ex-husband Lamar Odom felt about the surprising news.

He did believe that Khloe was infertile, after all, since they were never able to have a baby together. So what does he think now that she’s pregnant?

The former baller was surprisingly sweet when asked what he thought in a promo from the new BET show Mancave on Jan. 17.

“Her having a baby? I’m happy for her,” he said, with an absolutely sincere tone. “She took care of me, she’ll be a good mother. For real. She’s a great woman.”

Lamar also still called her his “shawty,” revealing

“I still got [her] name still on me — I mean, her initials still on me. For no reason. I understand when it’s over, it’s over.”

Then he joked, “When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.” Lamar truly seemed to be in good spirits, and he looked healthier and happier than we’ve seen him since his overdose in 2015.

Big ups to Lamar for keeping it classy and positive!
