Lamar Odom’s Rep Confirms Rehab After ‘The Doctors’ Interview

Macy's Welcomes Los Angeles Lakers' Star Forward Lamar Odom in Los Angeles on June 22, 2010
Lamar Odom is finally opening up about his scary near death experience on a new episode of The Doctors. Lamar confesses he had no idea he was in a coma until Khloe told him in the hospital.“I didn’t know until Khloe [Kardashian] had told me that I was in a coma,” Lamar says in a new clip. “I couldn’t even speak at the time. I couldn’t talk. Nothing would come out when I would open my mouth, so I was scared.”

He does remember being at the brothel, during a dark time in a life.“Being at that damn brothel and thinking I was going to just rest a little bit [is the last thing I remember before waking up in the hospital]. I wasn’t in a good place mentally, especially mentally before that incident happened. Me and my wife at the time were going through some things.”

It has been confirmed that Lamar had entered rehab, but says in the interview that he was able to survive to tell his story, “I was in a dark place. They say everything happens for a reason, so I guess the reason is I’m here and I can tell the story.”

Lamar’s Rep confirmed his rehab stay, “Lamar Odom has checked into rehab,” his rep exclusively told Us in a statement. “After consulting with his family and friends, and meeting with Dr. Travis Stork of The Doctors, he has decided it is best he take time to focus on himself. He is dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle and being the best father he can be to his children. Lamar asks that the public please respect his privacy at this time and truly appreciates the love and support of his family, friends and fans. He will talk about his journey in January on The Doctors.”
