Khloe Kardashian Rumors
Two failed stints in the NBA Development League and a handful of international stops have been his only options. The UNC allegations haven’t helped, nor has his reputation as a bad locker room presence. But McCants’ biggest regret was his highly-publicized relationship with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian late in his career, which he said gave people an opportunity to doubt his commitment to the NBA. “Without that situation in play, I’m a $60-70 million player,” McCants said. “Easily.”
‘I would love to have a family,’ she says. With Thompson? ‘We’ve talked about it. He [already] is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father. I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, “the clock is ticking”. I feel in my soul it will happen.’ There are no immediate plans to walk down the aisle but she does say she has ‘never been in this type of love’. If he proposed, would she accept? ‘Yes I would.’ Spoiler alert? Only time will tell.
Take Us back to the start of your marriage. Was Khloé aware of your drug use? Lamar Odom: I was hiding it for a while, but then I got frustrated and was like, f–k it. Around two years before we split up [in 2011], I was in the man cave she had made for me and she caught me. She was disappointed. So was I. The sad thing about it is, I don’t know if I was disappointed because I was actually doing the drug or because she caught me. She knew I was doing cocaine the whole time after that. It was my drug of choice. I’m not going to say she accepted it because that would be the wrong word. Tolerated would be a better word.
Surprised Khloé was at your side? Lamar Odom: Hell, yeah. It was definitely a moment of relief. I didn’t even know what had just happened. I mean, I’m a big strong dude who has made it to the highest level of doing what he loves. And now I can’t walk or talk. She was the first thing I saw. She said, “Hi, Mookah.” “Mookah” is a name my mother used to call me. She said it to let me know I wasn’t dead. She played a major role in me getting my memory back. She would bring pictures of my mother and my grandmother. I kept thinking, Am I paralyzed forever? Am I mute forever? It was scary shit. Faith got me through.
He also said that he hid his cocaine use from ex-wife Khloe Kardashian for a while, but she found out about two years before their 2013 split. “She was disappointed. So was I,” he said. “The sad thing about it is, I don’t know if I was disappointed because I was actually doing the drug or because she caught me. She knew I was doing cocaine the whole time after that. It was my drug of choice. I’m not going to say she accepted it because that would be the wrong word. Tolerated would be a better word.”
While Tristan Thompson and the Cavaliers were busy taking on the Houston Rockets on ESPN, the Cavs star made his debut further down the dial on E! and the season premiere of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Thompson’s romance with Khloe Kardashian was a main plot point on the episode, which was filmed last fall, with her family wondering about the new man in her life. “So, I see pictures of Khloe with some NBA player, and even though I know not to believe everything on the Internet, Khloe and a NBA player do go hand in hand,” Kim says early on.
Harden never criticized Howard, and he still doesn’t. He never complained about a combustible roster—Ty Lawson, Michael Beasley and Josh Smith under the same roof—or moaned about an inexperienced coach, at least not publicly. “He just ate it,” says a Rockets official. “He ate all of it.” He was tending to Howard on the court and Khloé Kardashian off, a double whammy of diva, made even more complex because Khloé was caring for estranged husband Lamar Odom after his overdose at a Nevada brothel. At one point, Khloé took to a live video chat and denied that her sexuality was to blame for the Rockets’ struggles, though she chose a far spicier turn of phrase.
