In a resurfaced interview, Lamar Odom, opened up about his relationship with actress Taraji P. Henson.

On an episode of TV One’s Uncensored, Odom explains, “I met Taraji at [an] HBO party. I met her and we hit it off right away,” he says he “really, really started liking her,” and that he wishes he “would’ve done things [differently]with her.”

He continued, “she was a little older than me but I learned a lot from her because that was the most significant relationship as a grown-up that I had with a Black woman.” He added, “I used to carry her picture on the road with me,” as he was a professional NBA player.

“She gave me inspiration… A Black woman working like that, that’s just as good at her craft as I am in my craft. Things ended with Taraji because of me being an immature punk” he said. “I didn’t know how to tell her that I was falling in love with another woman named Khloe Kardashian,” he revealed.
