Khloe Kardashian: Lamar Odom Was a “Crafty” Cheater

2015 was a wild ride for Khloe Kardashian. She got into the best shape of her life, started dating NBA player James Harden and was by her ex-husband Lamar Odom‘s side after he was hospitalized following a drug overdose.

Kardashian sat down with Howard Stern to promote her new show on FYI network, “Kocktails with Khloe,” where she opened up about Odom cheating on her for the majority of their marriage.

She said Odom did a really good job of making her feel like she was special, but she knew something was up when the tabloids began reporting stories of him cheating.

“Love is blind … Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I’m this princess. I never speculated cheating … so I didn’t know about cheating … until before the DUI [in 2013],” said Kardashian.

“He was so good,” she said of how Odom hid his cheating. “So nothing was on his cell phones, [but] he had an assistant. They were all on his assistant’s phone, so he was really crafty.”

Stern asked her, “Doesn’t that feel awful when the assistant knows, and everyone knows?”

“Oh, it’s disgusting,” replied Kardashian.

“But all these rumors kept coming out in the weeklies, and as much as I know they’re bullshit, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Something has to be right here,” she said.

Then this one girl did this interview and she was so adamant, and when I confronted [Lamar], he blamed another teammate. He was like, ‘Oh, that’s another teammate’s girl, blah, blah, blah…’ This was when he was playing for the Clippers his last season.”

Kardashian describes dealing with the breakup of her marriage, saying, “It is humiliating on any level, but I found out he was cheating on me the majority of our marriage, I just didn’t know.”

Many people believe Kardashian and Odom rushed into getting married after only knowing each other for a few months and then only having a month-long engagement, Kardashian doesn’t regret her decision.

“I’m sure people would say it’s a mistake for me, I wouldn’t change what I did because it was also some of the best times of my life … so for me, I wouldn’t say it’s a mistake. I would say I needed that experience for me and I never felt better in my life at that time.”
