Reading Time: 5 minutes
To celebrate the upcoming final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians E! is airing every single episode of the series. This includes the spinoff show Khloe & Lamar which lasted for two seasons. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s relationship came crumbling down and ended in a divorce officially in 2016.
Lamar has apologized several times to Khloe even after the couple split. The former NBA player confessed to cheating and drug use that often caused conflict in their relationship.
Lamar Odom Apologized To Khloe Kardashian For Cheating
Khloe and Lamar were married after only one month of dating in 2009. She filed for divorce in 2013 after cheating and drug rumors began swirling about Lamar. It was revealed on a 2014 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that Lamar did cheat on Khloe.
During an interview with The Morning Hustle Lamar spoke candidly about his regrets after cheating on Khloe. He said he would rewind his life back if he could. “I would probably say it was the first time I decided to cheat on Khloe. I would rewind that back and take those things back and never let that happen.” He had written about the downfall of their marriage in his book Darkness To Light: A Memoir.
Lamar Also Apologized For Threatening To Kill His Wife
In his book, Lamar also apologizes to Khloe for a drug-fueled night that led to him threatening her. Lamar was high on coke and ecstasy one night and began demonstrating erratic behavior in his man cave. Khloe grew concerned and called some of his friends to help calm him down. Lamar began ripping apart the walls until his hands were bloodied causing Khloe to run into their bedroom to hide. She came back a little while later to try and get him to come out of the room.
“I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders which frightened her,” he writes in the book. “‘What the f**k are you doing?’ I screamed, out of my mind. ‘You try to embarrass me in front of my friends? I’ll f**king kill you! You don’t know what I’m capable of!’ She ran back upstairs and slammed the door.”
He reflected on this incident during a Good Morning America appearance. “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. ‘[I owe] her and her family an apology. Big time.”
Another Apology Came In 2017 While Lamar Was Battling Drug Addiction
In 2015, Lamar suffered a drug overdose in a Las Vegas brothel. He had a combination of cocaine, cognac and cannabis in his system at the time. His heart stopped twice and he suffered 12 seizures and six strokes. He was put on life support after suffering a collapsed lung and a ruptured kidney. Lamar was in a coma for a few days. Though he and Khloe’s relationship was over at that point, she flew to be with him through every step of the recovery.
Lamar appeared on the show The Doctors in 2017 to talk about his battle to overcome drug addiction. He went to rehab for 30 days and wanted to try and win Khloe back. “Khloe is important to me,” Lamar said … “She’s been through all of this with me and she stood right by my side so I just wanna repay her.”
“I just want to tell them I’m sorry for all that wasted time and wasted energy…that in my addiction I didn’t know who I was…so I couldn’t take care of myself. I damn sure couldn’t take care of anybody else.”
Lamar Thanked Khloe Kardashian For Helping Him After Drug Overdose
In a 2019 interview with Diana Madison, Lamar praised Khloe. “I had an Armenian angel, I had a great wife and hadn’t treated her well” he said. “I never had the opportunity to tell her how thankful I was for wiping my a*s.”
“After I came out of the coma, I never had the opportunity” he continued. “Especially where I was at that stage of my life, it was hard for me to express any kind of empathy. I messed up, Hopefully, I can make it up. Thank you Khloé for everything you did to me, hopefully, I’ll have the opportunity to show you face to face.”
Now Lamar Is Reflecting On Their Relationship In 2021
Lamar posted a video watching the marathon of Khloe & Lamar and thanked the Kardashian family for letting him be a part of their journey. “It’s crazy how time flies,” he says in the video. “I want to give a shout out to E!, for giving me the opportunity, a shout-out to my ex-wife, [and] to Kris Jenner [and] Kim, for giving me the opportunity to cross over.”
“I’ll never forget the day I got married on TV,” he adds. “I get a little emotional watching it.” He also shouted out the Kardashians in the caption of the post.
Both Khloe and Lamar have kept things amicable while they move on with their lives. Lamar previously ended his engagement to Sabrina Parr in 2020. Khloe is trying to work things out with baby daddy Tristan Thompson. The couple are parents to 2-year-old daughter True.
