WATCH: Lamar Odom Discusses Khloé Kardashian, His Terrifying Hospitalization for the First Time in a Sit-Down Interview
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.
