Lamar Odom opens up about his overdose in very candid interview

by

Lamar Odom has given his first interview since his near-fatal overdose last year.

On an upcoming special of US TV show The Doctors, the former basketball player speaks about his battle with drugs and what made him hit that "low-point."

In a clip for the episode, Lamar is asked what was his last memory before waking up in hospital, to which he replies, "Being in that damn brothel and thinking I was going to just rest a little bit.

"I wasn't in a good place mentally, especially mentally, before that incident happened."

Lamar then wells up with tears before saying, "Me and my wife at the time were going through some things. I was in a dark place."

In the short video, he also says that while he's still recovering from the overdose, he has to look at the positives from what occurred.

"So I guess they say everything happens for a reason so I guess I'm here so I can tell a story."

And it was Khloe who had to tell him everything when he woke up in hospital. "I didn't know until Khloe had told me that I was in a coma. 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 added.
