Lamar Odom has admitted that he still smokes marijuana in a rare interview about his drug addiction and the Nevada brothel baker who nearly killed him.
In an interview with ABC, the 39-year-old ex-basketball player joked about the last time he did cocaine, smiling when asked if he & # 39; yesterday & # 39; had done, and said the first time he ever tried it, it was & # 39; like unleashing a demon & # 39 ;.
He admitted it for & # 39; a long time & # 39; to hide from Khloe Kardashian, his ex-wife, and said he felt remorse about treating & that queen & # 39; like he did.
& # 39; I was a professional to hide it.
& # 39; You don't want your wife to know you are sniffing coke and … having sex with other women, & # 39; he said.

He also visited his 2015 visit to The Love Ranch, a brothel in Nevada, where he became unconscious after six strokes and twelve attacks.
& # 39; I was thinking of trying to have fun, & # 39; he said, adding that he went there after Khloe kicked him out of the house after a fight in which he threatened to kill her.
In his book he describes the calling to her: & I will kill you. You don't know what I can do. & # 39;
He said she probably & # 39; scared & # 39; his was because his drug use had become so serious.
& # 39; I'm pretty sure she should be scared at the time. I'm thinking about it now, like, I couldn't believe how I treated that queen like that, & he said.
Odom married Khloe Kardashian in 2009 after a month of dating. He said he was a & # 39; professional & # 39; was in hiding his cocaine addiction, but that he eventually unraveled and even threatened to kill her in one argument
Odom is shown at The Love Ranch brothel in Nevada where he spent four days taking drugs, drinking and having sex with prostitutes before being rushed to the hospital with six strokes and 12 attacks.

& # 39; She took care of me. I had everything I ever wanted or needed. At the time, I also played basketball very well, & # 39; he said, adding that he & # 39; & # 39; loved being part of the Kardashian fame circus.
& # 39; A red carpet is being rolled out everywhere for you, what should you not like? & # 39; he said.
When she threw him out of their house, he said he felt like a child was being & # 39; thrown out & # 39 ;.
Odom spent four days at The Love Ranch, but says he doesn't remember taking drugs.
& # 39; I wasn't thinking. I was just selfish, "he said.
He admitted that he never apologized to Khloe or her family, but that he owes both of them an apology.
Odom said he went to The Love Ranch to have & # 39; have fun & # 39; after he was thrown out by Khloe. He said he did not remember taking drugs and it is a miracle that he is still alive
Odom laughed when asked if he had taken cocaine before the interview, denied him, and said he couldn't remember the last time he took it.
& # 39; I can't even remember it. It's a long time ago. Did I sniff cocaine before this interview? No.
& # 39; You can only believe me and if you don't, I can't do anything, & # 39; he said.
Despite spending a month in the withdrawal clinic in 2016, Odom said he still drinks occasionally and & # 39; to this day & # 39; marijuana smokes.
Odom admitted that he & # 39; to this day & # 39; Marijuana used to reduce & # 39; his anxiety & # 39; and says he still drinks something now and then
Rook I smoke marijuana to this day to help with some anxiety. Helps me cool down.
& # 39; The path of everyone in rehabilitation and after the withdrawal course will be different to find sobriety.
& # 39; What will be good for you may not work for me & # 39 ;, he said.
The interview was to promote his new autobiography, Darkness to Light, which he calls a story of being vulnerable, being victorious, & # 39 ;.
The Kardashians did not comment. They gathered around Odom after the brothel incident and helped him with his early recovery.
When he then continued to use drugs, Khloe continued a divorce.
She had filed it two years before the brothel incident, but the couple tried to fix their marriage.
