Quickly after they got hitched, the two had a couples fragrance and their own reality show spin off, Khloé & Lamar. The world fell in love with their relationship and watched their ‘happily married life’ play out on screen.
However, two years ago (after rumours that Khloé and Lamar’s marriage was on the rocks) Lamar was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel after overdosing on drugs. He was then in a coma for a significant period afterwards.
Khloé, and the rest of the Kardashian family, nursed Lamar back to health — and he is now almost completely better — but he has stayed out of the limelight as much as possible.
Lamar appeared on the latest episode of The Wendy Williams Show, and he got pretty candid.
From the start, dressed in a dapper blue suit, he looked shaky and concerned — with Wendy commenting on his “sweaty palms”.
Being famously blunt, Wendy did not hold back with her questions, getting into the nitty-gritty with Khloé’s ex-husband.
She commented that Lamar was a successful basketball player before he met Khloé, so “what was so different about being a Kardashian?” Lamar responded by saying, “Well, I had to pay for it all before I was married to Khloé.”
Though he admitted to using Khloé’s money, he later clarified in the interview that even though that was the case, he still had a lot of his own money — “I had money in my pocket, I could get what I wanted when I wanted it.”
And what he chose to splurge on? Illegal drugs.
Wendy grilled Lamar on whether he would be high when filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Khloé & Lamar and this is what he had to say:
He continued on to say that he lied every day to cover his secret, and that Khloé was the only one that really knew what was going on with his substance abuse.
But he would get high before the filming of an episode and be under the influence during the shoot.
Despite the drama, Lamar did seem to acknowledge that what he did was wrong and that he wasted a lot of time high, when he should have been with his family.
Bringing back to the present, Wendy asked her guest a few questions about how he felt about his ex-wife, getting Lamar to comment on Khloé’s bod, in which he humbly replied, “She’s always been beautiful to me.”
But when asked whether he would ever get back with her he very quickly replied, “NO.” Suggesting that would not be the best decision for either of them.
