The sportsman speaks about his ex-wife’s selflessness
Khloe Kardashian had previously put her divorce aside after Lamar Odom was hospitalized due to drinking and drug use. This move has made the star feel grateful and wishes to repay his ex-wife for her strong support.
He revealed during a guest appearance on The Doctors: “Khloe is important to me. She’s been through all of this with me and she stood right by my side so I just wanna repay her.”
Lamar then issued an apology to Khloe and her family, adding: “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.”
The news comes after Lamar – whose divorce from Khloe was finalized in late 2016 – completed a short stay at a rehab center as a means of improving himself.
His attorney Walter Mosley recently stated: “I have had reports from the doctors that he’s doing well. This is a preventative forward looking movement by Lamar. We have a lot of very important things lined up for next year. I like to say Lamar is on a comeback tour in 2017.
It’s about maintaining health, being healthy, doing what’s right for his family, being a better father, just improving himself. This was his idea and he has the full support of the people who work for him, his family, staff and everyone around him.
The sportsman made the decision to become a better father and to remind himself that anyone can improve with enough drive and support.
His lawyer continued: “It’s 100% of bettering himself. Being a better father to his kids, being a better friend and just taking responsibility and live a more healthy and fulfilled life. There’s a lot to live for. He’s young. He has the rest of his life in front of him. He has a lot to look forward to.”
