Published

on

After more than a year since a drug overdose that nearly killed him, former L.A. Lakers star, Lamar Odom appeared on The Doctors where he talked about the scary, near-fatal encounter, his two children and ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian. In October, 2015, Odom was rushed to a hospital in Nevada after he was found unconscious at a brothel after a night of drinking and drug overdose. The NBA star was in a coma but regained consciousness a few days later. He suffered kidney failure and multiple strokes while on life support.

After making a full recovery and successfully completing 30 days of rehab, Odom told The Doctors host, Dr. Travis Stork that he is now sober and wants to reconcile with his kids and ex-wife. Kardashian and Odom tied the knot in September, 2009 and starred together in a spinoff of the reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians. After four years of marriage, speculation over the athlete’s substance abuse and infidelity started to circulate which ultimately led to Khloe Kardashian filing for divorce in 2015.

It wasn’t until after Odom’s hospitalization that Kardashian withdrew the divorce in order to be there for her husband of six years during his medical treatments. Speaking on his feelings of gratitude towards his ex-wife, Odom admitted that he would like to repay Kardashian for helping him get through such a rough time in his life. He also mentioned that it was Khloe Kardashian who told him what happened to him after he came out of a coma. Odom went on to say that she is still important to him and that he wants her back. The 32-year-old reality star is yet to make any comments on the newly sober Odom’s plans to mend their relationship.

During the interview with Dr. Stork, the 37-year-old athlete opened up about his relationship with his two children from a previous marriage. Odom explained how hard it was for him to face them but went on to say that the bond between his kids and him is getting stronger now that he is sober.

Odom’s substance abuse had increased over the last two years, which he admits was the root cause of all his personal problems. Speaking out about his drug use, Odom explained that it made him numb to his feelings and distant to the important things in his life. In the past, he has been treated for alcohol and substance abuse, but says none of it helped as much as the most recent rehabilitation program. Now, Odom says he’s focused on living a sober, happy life and making amends with his kids and ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian.
