Lamar Odom has expressed hope that he will reconcile with his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, following her split from Tristan Thompson.
The former NBA player who is taking part in Celebriry Big Brother made this known on Monday’s episode of the reality show.
During a discussion with costars Cynthia Bailey, Carson Kressley and Miesha “Cupcake” Tate about the pair’s whirlwind romance, Lamar admitted he didn’t treat Khloe well.
For most of the show, Lamar had been talking about his love for Khloe.
Bailey, 54, eventually pointed out: “When you talk about her, it sounds like she was the love of your life.”
“I’ve never thought about getting married again,” the NBA champion, 42, responded, before admitting how the demise of their romance was a big regret of his.
He added: “I didn’t treat that good woman right.”
Bailey suggested that Odom reach out to Khloe Kardashian, 37, once he leaves the house.
Odom then told his costars, “Well, I’m going to try my damndest.”
“I would probably just want to take her to dinner,” he continued in a confessional. “It would be a blessing just to be in her presence to just tell her I’m sorry and what a fool I was. 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.”
Odom went on to tell his castmates that he wished he was “mature enough” back then, and that if he was “given the opportunity again,” he would “know what to do and what not to do.”
The former NBA player also admitted it’s “sometimes” hard for him to sleep at night because Khloe is on his mind.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian tied the knot in 2009 after only one month of dating. They separated in 2013, though the Khloe didn’t officially file for divorce until 2015 because of his near-fatal overdose. Their separation was finalized in 2016.
