In his new memoir, Lamar Odom admits to cheating on Khloe Kardashian a lot and even threatening to kill her on at least one occasion.
... in a new interview to promote said memoir, Odom says he and his ex-wife still get along pretty well and aren't merely in touch -- but were very recently just in touch.
Speaking with Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM show on Wednesday, Odom revealed his Kardashian texted him just the day before, not long after the memoir's release.
"Um, she sent me a text yesterday," Odom told McCarthy after he was asked if he knew how Khloe felt about the book.
He continued in this response:
"She good, she talked about one of the stories I told in the book. About her coming to the hotel and putting her hands on the girl. She said she didn't even think I remembered that story."
Khloe thought Lamar would forget about the time that she arrived at his hotel room and caught him cheating with a stripper and she nearly strangled the poor girl to death?
Someone would need to be really high or f-cked up in some way to forget that this happened and...
... oh, right, nevermind.
Odom has been on a whirlwind press tour over the past several days, talking up the biography "Darkness to Light," which documents in many years of infidelity and drug use.
In one of his craziest statements, Odom even claimed that he never overdosed in Nevada... but rather that a hit was put on his life and that's why he ended up in the hospital.
Lamar says his most recent exchange with Khloe was "friendly," despite many of the things he wrote about their relationship in his book.
For example, Odom claimed he "had broken my vows with Khloe so many times" before Kardashian started checking his Black Card statements.
One night, he said she tracked his movements to the Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood, where he was shacked up with two strippers and quite a few drugs.
Around midnight, he writes, there was a "pounding" at the door -- and on the other side was Khloe, Kris Jenner and their security team.
"Khloe opened the door and pounced on the first girl she saw," says Lamar.
"Try to imagine the scene: Khloe's beating the shit out of one of the girls who tried to protest. She's dropping vicious blows all over the top of this girl's head," he claims, and then he elaborates:
"Kris is screaming and her security guard jumps in and pulls Khloe off the beaten stripper. Khloe tells me to gather up my things, and the guards quickly remove all traces of the drugs.
"We sneak out of a back door of the Roosevelt and disappear into the night."
Talking to McCarthy, Odom said he hopes that he and his wife four years continue to keep the lines of communication open.
"The next house I buy, hopefully she can decorate it," he said. "They're amazing decorators, they're amazing homemakers."
In conclusion? Lamar clearly wants another shot with Khloe.
"She's an incredible person and she'll always have a place in my heart and be dear to me," he told McCarthy, also calling her the love of his life.
"She's extremely courageous and tough and strong."
