Lamar Odom has once again opened up about his infidelity during his marriage to Khloé Kardashian.

In a new interview with People, the 43-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers star spoke about the full extent of his cheating when he was with Khloé, whom he married in 2009 before separating in 2013. "Behind the scenes, I put her through shit. Like, shit that y'all don't know," he admitted. "The shit y'all know, what y'all think y'all know, it's crazy. But the stories that y'all don't know is, like, really crazy. ... I'd have these random women coming out. Some of them all came out at one time."

The couple announced their separation in December 2013 following months of speculation, and their divorce was finalized in 2016. He said that he was having “full-blown relationships” on the side during their time together. “Your wife is Khloé Kardashian. You buggin'," he said. "I'm, like, laughing out of embarrassment right now. Like, how you thought you was going to get away with that one?"

In the years following their split, Odom has been forthcoming about his regret over how he treated the Kardashian. During an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother last year, he even said that he wanted to “try my damndest” to reconnect with her at some point. "It would be a blessing just to be in her presence to just tell her I'm sorry and what a fool I was," he said. "She has the right to never see me again for the things I put her through, but time moves on and people change. I would say I'm a lot more loyal now."

After the couple called it quits, Khloé went on to date Tristan Thompson, who she has been in an on-again off-again relationship with since 2016. She recently admitted that she is not “still sleeping” with Tristan, whom she welcomed her second child with via surrogacy in July, 2022.
