- Lamar Odom said he left Taraji P. Henson for Khloé Kardashian.
- He opened up about being an ‘immature punk’ in a new episode of TVOne’s Uncensored.
While Khloé Kardashian and Taraji P. Henson were minding their respective business today, Lamar Odom popped up to give everyone a healthy dose of TMI. You see, the former NBA star is in a new episode of TVOne’s Uncensored show and opened up about how he left the Hidden Figures actor for the reality star.
Lamar wasted no time getting to the point and admitted that he messed up and wishes he ‘would have done things different’ with Taraji because she taught him a lot about himself. He shared, ‘She was a little older than me, but I learned a lot from her because that was the most significant relationship as a grown-up that I had with a Black woman.’
To prove how much he was into her, Lamar said he actually used to carry her picture with him and even while travelling with his basketball teammates. He added, ‘Don’t nobody know that, except for the dudes that played with me. She gave me inspiration. A Black woman working like that…that’s just as good with her craft as I am in my craft.’
But, uh, I guess that wasn’t enough because he was talking to Khloé at the same time. Taking responsibility for the bad breakup, he said, ‘Things ended with Taraji because of me being an immature punk. I didn’t know how to tell her that I was falling in love with another woman named Khloe Kardashian.’ Eek!
Khloé and Taraji haven’t commented on this new video yet, but some of the drama surrounding Lamar’s recently published memoir will be addressed in Sunday’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode. I will be waiting with bated breath!
