Lamar Odom wishes he had never cheated on Khloe Kardashian

Lamar Odom often speaks candidly about his marriage to Khloé Kardashian. In an interview on The Morning Hustle radio show, which aired in February 2021, the former Los Angeles Lakers star said that, if he could go back in time and redo a year of his life, he would go back to 2009. That is not only the year he met and married Khloé, but also the year he began to be unfaithful to her, he told the hosts — a decision he wishes he could take back, according to the clip.

He shared an Instagram post in early March 2021 that included a clip of their wedding shown on Lamar & Khloé, admitting that he stills gets "emotional" watching old footage from their time together. In the caption, Lamar thanked his ex-wife and her family "for taking me in and loving me without judgement – y'all gave me family and for that I am forever grateful."
