Odom detailed how he threatened to kill Kardashian

In his memoir, Odom explained one of his regrettable drug-fueled moments, when he threatened to kill Kardashian. In his book he explained how he was using cocaine and ecstasy in his “man cave” and Kardashian called friends over.

He became angry, sharing: “Khloe came down and knocked on the door. I opened it suddenly and grabbed her forcefully by the shoulders, which frightened her. ‘What the f**k are you doing?’ I screamed, out of my mind. ‘You trying to embarrass me in front of my friends? I’ll f**king kill you! You don’t know what I’m capable of!’”

Odom admitted that he felt “embarrassed and ashamed” of this behavior and asked Kardashian for forgiveness, calling the incident “a new low for our relationship and my life… the most regrettable moment in a series of regrettable moments.”

Kardashian texted Odom

During an interview on The Jenny McCarthy Show, Odom chatted with the host about how Kardashian reacted to the intimate stories he told in his book. He noted that she had texted him, sharing: “Um, she sent me a text yesterday. 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.” Odom noted that her text was “friendly.”

He also explained how they still communicate occasionally, and shared, “The next house I buy, hopefully, she can decorate it. They’re amazing decorators, they’re amazing homemakers.”

“She’s an incredible person and she’ll always have a place in my heart and be dear to me…. She’s extremely courageous and tough and strong,” he added.
