People provided a excerpt from the book. 

Khloe moved on quickly from Lamar, dating The Game, French Montana and James Harden.

She had child True with Tristan Thompson in April 2018. But in a parallel nightmare, Thompson also cheated on Khloe with multiple women. They split for good in February. 

Lamar, who admits he cheated and did cocaine, writes in his book that he knows he messed up. He is now drug free.

‘I wish I could have been more of a man,’ Odom said.

 ‘It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.’

He also admits that he is completely estranged from the family.

Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner treated him like a son and he was close to Kim, Kourtney and Kendall.

Lamar also had a bond with Rob Kardashian, who lived with the couple for a while, as well as Jonathan Cheban.

And one day he wishes he could get along with the clan. 

‘I hope we can be friends,’ Odom confessed. ‘I miss the family. And I hope we can all be reacquainted one day.’ 

Lamar said his 2009 marriage to Khloe was wonderful.

‘For a while, being with her was bliss and I was the happiest I’ve ever been,’ Odom wrote. ‘We were one of the most famous couples in Hollywood and we made more money together than we had individually.’

But he had demons.

‘At the start of our marriage I was faithful to her,’ he writes. 

Then he cheated and he gave into his cocaine addiction.

‘I could not handle the lethal cocktail of the spotlight, addiction, a diminishing career and infidelity,’ he wrote. 

‘Oh, did I mention the paranoia, anxiety, depression. … I couldn’t keep my d*** in my pants or the coke out of my nose. 

‘Drug addicts are incredibly skilled at hiding their habit. I’d get defensive and Khloe would just drop it.’

Odom also gives Khloe credit for being by her side when he almost died of a drug overdose in 2015. He suffered 12 strokes and six hearts attacks.

‘I remember waking up and her showing me pictures of my mother,’ Odom said.

His mother Cathy died of cancer when he was 12.

‘I was surprised on how quick she was to show her devotion to me,’ added the former athlete.

‘Her love for me must have been unconditional. That’s the only thing [I think] that gave her the strength to still love me at that time.’

In 2016 Khloe told Howard Stern that Odom was careful to cover up his bad habits: ‘Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I’m this princess. I never speculated cheating,’ she said.

‘I know he loves me. I know we loved each other. I don’t question those feelings,’ she said. ‘I’ve always asked why. Lamar does…did struggle with substance abuse. I do believe he has a sex addiction, but I also don’t know if I believe in a sex addiction that much.’

When she was asked if she thinks she should have waited before marrying Larma, Khloe said no.

‘Yes, I’m sure people will say it was a mistake for me. I wouldn’t change what I did because it was also some of the best time of my life,’ she admitted. ‘I wouldn’t say it was a mistake. I needed that experience. The love I received was the love I needed at that time.’
