    Khloé Kardashian Reveals She Feels Fine About Lamar Odom Sharing "His Truth" About Their Marriage

    Khloé said she was pleased Lamar had been so “honest” in sharing his “truth”, which included stories about him threatening to kill her while high on drugs during their marriage.

    Back in May, Lamar Odom released his memoir, Darkness to Light which, among other things, detailed his drug addiction leading to the demise of his four-year marriage to Khloé Kardashian.

    Up until the book’s release, we’d only really heard about their marital problems from Khloé’s perspective — but even then, she was always vague.


    In fact, Khloé kept the fact that Lamar was being repeatedly unfaithful and struggling with a drug addiction from her family and the public for two years. But when news that he’d gone missing for 72 hours became public in August 2013, Khloé began speaking about their issues on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    One of the most shocking passages released from the book was Lamar recounting the moment he “threatened to kill” Khloé after she walked in on him using cocaine and Ecstasy.


    Lamar wrote: “Khloé came down and knocked on the door. I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders, which frightened her. ‘What the fuck are you doing?’ I screamed, out of my mind. I said: ‘You trying to embarrass me in front of my friends? I’ll fucking kill you! You don’t know what I'm capable of.’” He went on to call the moment the “most regrettable of [his] life”.

    And in another serialised passage, Lamar claimed that Khloé had “beaten the shit” out of a sex worker she found him with in a hotel room back in 2012.

    Lamar revealed that he’d booked a room at the Hotel Roosevelt for a “cocaine and marijuana-fuelled orgy” with two sex workers. However, Khloé allegedly tracked him down and obtained a key to the room from security, bringing Kris Jenner with her.

    Lamar claimed: “She opened the door and pounced on the first girl she saw. Khloé’s beating the shit out one of the girls who tried to protest. She’s dropping vicious blows all over the top of this girl’s head.”

    He went on to say that Kris Jenner screamed as security guards tried to break up the fight before Khloé told him to “pack up” as “all traces of drugs” were removed from the room.

    Well, Khloé has now revealed how she feels about Lamar opening up about their past so honestly and publicly.

    In a clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians filmed during his publicity trail for the book, Khloé said that she was glad Lamar was speaking “his truth”.


    Speaking to Kim, she said: “I’m fine. It’s his truth. He’s allowed to tell his version. Him and I each played a significant role in each other’s lives. If I talk about my past I would hope that my marriage would be a chapter that I would talk about and for him, the same thing.”

    “We tell [the public] what happens to us,” she went on, “And for Lamar, if this is his story to tell — a lot of this was never my place to ever talk about. But it’s definitely his place because it’s happened to him.”


    Khloé continued: “So, if he feels like talking about it and this is a form of his healing or therapy, I actually think it’s really courageous to talk about the amount of addiction he’s had. The depths of it.”

    And Khloé concluded by saying that while Lamar’s “truth” wasn’t “all good”, she was glad he was being so honest in his relaying of the past.


    She said: “It doesn’t bother me. I appreciate that it’s so honest. It’s not all great but it’s...I appreciate the honesty in it.”
