La­mar and Khloe are still friends

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

LA­MAR Odom is still friends with Khloe Kar­dashian.

The for­mer bas­ket­ball star – who was mar­ried to the Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans star for seven years un­til their di­vorce in 2016 – in­sists there is no bad blood be­tween them even though Khloe has “ev­ery rea­son” to hate him.

He told Life & Style Weekly mag­a­zine: “I just texted her yes­ter­day. I don’t think she hates me, even though she has ev­ery rea­son to. I def­i­nitely don’t hate her.

“I don’t think I was ex­ploited by the Kar­dashi­ans. I would ab­so­lutely do an­other re­al­ity show. With them I got to see things in a to­tally dif­fer­ent light. I learned how to deal with peo­ple and live spon­ta­neously.”

Mean­while, La­mar pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted he hit “rock bot­tom” when Khloe caught him “get­ting high” with an­other woman in a motel room.

He said: “As the years went on, and I got into my 30s, my ca­reer was wind­ing down, and things just got out of con­trol. When I was like 32, 33… I just wanted to get high all the time. That’s it, just get high. And things got dark as hell.

“One of the dark­est places I’ve ever been was when I was in a motel room, get­ting high with this chick, and my wife (at the time) walked in. That prob­a­bly was like rock bot­tom.

“My d**k and my habit took me down all the roads that you don’t ever wanna go down. A lot of great men are fools to that. Fools to that.

“There are prob­a­bly a lot of young dudes out there who hear my story and think that it could never hap­pen to them. That they’re un­touch­able. Man… No­body is un­touch­able. No­body in this life is im­mune to pain.”

La­mar Odom is still friends with Khloe Kar­dashian.
