Lamar Odom Opens Up About His Feelings For Khloe Kardashian Now

Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom were once one of the most talked-about celebrity couples. The reality star and the former NBA player met in August 2009 at a party hosted by former NBA star Ron Artest (via OK! Magazine). The pair quickly hit it off and began dating. Just days after meeting, the couple made their first official appearance together when they attended a movie premiere. The whirlwind relationship heated up quickly and the couple opted to walk down the aisle just a few weeks after they began dating. Odom became a staple on Kardashian's reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," and the couple even eventually landed their own spin-off show simply titled "Khloé and Lamar."

In 2012, rumors began to swirl that Odom had been unfaithful to Kardashian during their marriage. The couple stuck together, but the following year, it was reported that the basketball player was dealing with a substance abuse problem. The pair began couples counseling, but by December 2013 they decided to call it quits when Kardashian filed for divorce. In 2015, Odom made headlines when he was hospitalized after being found unresponsive in a Nevada Brothel. Kardashian, who was still legally his wife at the time, flew to his side and helped to nurse him back to health. Despite speculation that they may have reconciled their relationship, Kardashian and Odom finalized their divorce in 2016, the same year she began dating NBA player Tristan Thompson. So, what's going on between Kardashian and Odom today?
