Lamar Odom is speaking out for the first time since he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and he isn’t holding anything back.

Right before he checked himself into rehab, Odom sat down with The Doctors to finally address what he’s been going through over the last year. In a sneak peek of his interview, Odom reveals that the last thing he remembers before slipping into a coma was “being at that brothel and thinking I was going to just rest a little bit.”

The former NBA star goes on to reveal that he didn’t even know that he had been in a coma until his then-wife, Khloé Kardashian, filled him in on what happened when he regained consciousness. “I didn’t know until Khloé had told me that I was in a coma,” he confessed. “I couldn’t even speak at the time. I couldn’t talk. Nothing would come out when I would open my mouth, so I was scared.”

Odom admitted that dealing with his demons was what caused him to spiral out of control, blaming his crumbling marriage as a source of stress. “I wasn’t in a good place mentally, especially mentally before that incident happened,” he said. “Me and my wife at the time were going through some things. I was in a dark place. They say everything happens for a reason, so I guess the reason is I’m here and I can tell the story.”

Dr. Stork went on to say the show has no plans to release the rest of the interview until Odom completes his 60-day rehab program.
