Before Lamar Odom found himself on that infamous Bunny Ranch with his life hanging in the balance, he was already headed down a dark path that got him to that moment.
In the midst of his NBA career and his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, his drug use had gotten so out of control that he threatened to kill her.
Via Us Weekly:
In his new memoir, Darkness to Light, Odom, 39, admits that he was once so angry with Kardashian, 34, while he was high on cocaine and ecstasy that he threatened to kill her. He was apparently upset that she called his friends for help when he started hallucinating in his “man cave.”
“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’m pretty sure she had to be scared at that point in time,” he said. “I’m thinking about it now, like, I couldn’t believe how I was treating that queen like that.”
When asked if he ever apologized to Khloe, he said, “I don’t think I have” and added he owes both “her and her family an apology. Big time.”
Odom was hospitalized after overdosing at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada back in 2015.
His new memoir was released May 28th.
