Lamar Odom opened up about the moments he snuck behind his wife Khloe Kardashian’s back to do drugs with other women in his new special TMZ PRESENTS: Lamar Odom: Sex, Drugs & Kardashians.
In an exclusive clip from the upcoming show, which airs tonight on Fox, the 43-year-old recalls how once during a drug spree he was so hard that the woman he was dating was his then-wife, 38 , called to ask for their help.
In the clip, the former Lakers player explains how he would trick his wife into leaving their marital home to do drugs: “What could I possibly say to Khloe to leave her for a few hours? To go and do drugs with a random woman.’
He continues, “I get so high on drugs that the woman actually comes on my phone and actually calls Khloe like, ‘You have to come and get him. He’s going crazy, he’s going to kill himself.”

In the years since their split, Lamar has been open about battling his serious addiction issues, which saw the star make headlines after he was put on life support in 2015 after taking a deadly mix of cocaine, alcohol and a sexual stimulant.
Before and after announcing his retirement from professional basketball in 2014, the former athlete often found himself in the news for the wrong reasons.
In 2013 he was arrested for drunk driving and allegedly abusing drugs.
At the time, he had been married to Khloe for five years since 2009, and the couple’s publicized marriage was even part of a show called Khloe & Lamar in 2011 before being canceled a year later for “wearing out” the show, with the basketball star.

Lamar spent four days using drugs, drinking and having sex with prostitutes before being hospitalized after suffering six strokes and 12 seizures in 2015. He is seen in the brothel
Two years later, in 2013, after months of speculated separation, Khloe filed for divorce and legal restoration of her surname.
The divorce was signed by both parties in July 2015, but did not receive final approval from a judge before she was granted parole in October 2015, the same month Lamara was found in a coma at a Nevada brothel.
The ex-NBA player was put on life support at a Las Vegas hospital and only regained consciousness three days later.
He was eventually transferred to an LA hospital and Khloe decided to drop her petition for divorce as she wanted to support her estranged husband in making medical decisions during his recovery.
Lamar made a full recovery from the near-fatal drug overdose three months later in January 2016, before Khloe filed for divorce again in May of that year. Their split was finalized in December 2016.
In 2017, he opened up about his health issues, his cocaine addiction, and his road to recovery.
