Lamar Odom Details Love Affair With Taraji P. Henson Months Before Khloe Proposal
As he promotes his new memoir, ‘Darkness to Light,’ former NBA star Lamar Odom is doing the opposite of holding his tongue, dishing on his drug addiction, marriage to Khloe Kardashian, and also a love affair with actress Taraji P. Henson; which he labels, one of the “happiest times in [his] life.”
Additionally, prior to exchanging vows with Khloe, Odom shares that he and Henson began dating in 2008, “We ended up exchanging numbers. She was just such a wise woman that she could see through whatever smooth act I was trying to put on. She refused to be just another conquest, and truthfully, I didn’t want her to be. We started secretly dating and quickly fell in love.”
Before he ended up meeting and marrying Khloe in 2009, he adds, “[Taraji] introduced me to her fourteen-year-old son, Marcel, and was at my house nearly every day. Sometimes she’d bring some of her Hollywood friends, like actress Sanaa Lathan. I don’t think I ever connected with another black woman as deeply as I did Taraji. Things were amazing, but of course, God gave me a layup and I blew it.”
Furthermore, their relationship lasted a few months and ended due to infidelity on his part. Since, Henson’s moved on and is currently gearing up to marry former NFL player Kelvin Hayden.
