Khloe Kardashian: Lamar Odom cheated through most of our marriage
Khloe Kardashian has been largely supportive of Lamar Odom publicly since Odom overdosed on drugs nearly three months ago, but she held nothing back recently when discussing how the couple’s relationship came unraveled.
In an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday, Kardashian opened up about Odom’s “disgusting” cheating habits and how he supposedly covered up his affairs.
“Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I was this princess, so I never speculated about his cheating,” she told Stern, via Esther Lee of Us Weekly. “He was so good. Nothing was on his cellphones.”
Kardashian claimed that Odom was able to cover his tracks by having an assistant filter text messages through his own phone.
“He had an assistant, so they were all on his assistant’s phone. He was really crafty,” she explained. “Oh, it’s disgusting! All of these rumors were coming out in the weeklies … and I was like, ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.’ Something has to be right here … I was pissed and he was pissed.”
Khloe recalled one time where she confronted Odom about an alleged mistress and he blamed one of his Los Angeles Clippers teammates. She also said she believes his substance abuse problems went hand-in-hand with his cheating and that she feels there was an element of “sex addiction” involved.
“I [was] genuinely blown away, like, ‘When did he fit that in?’ I don’t know,” Kardashian added. “It’s a full-time job .. It is humiliating on any level, but I found out that he was cheating during the majority of our marriage.
“P—y is thrown at [NBA players] all day long. I get it. I’ve always asked, ‘Why?’ and Lamar [did] struggle with substance abuse. I do believe there’s a sex addiction, but I also don’t know if I believe in a sex addiction that much.”
Given all that she revealed about Odom’s alleged infidelity, it is no surprise that Kardashian acknowledged that she is still dating Houston Rockets star James Harden. She also insisted that she loves Odom and that her estranged husband is a “phenomenal person.”
Odom was recently transferred from a hospital to a rehab facility, and he seems to be making progress with his recovery. He also got some good news this week regarding potential legal issues he might have had.
It seems safe to say that Kardashian and Odom only put their divorce on hold so Odom can focus on his health. They have no plans of reconciling.
