Lamar Odom Interview With The Doctors Video

Lamar Odom on His Recovery: "I Committed Suicide Enough Already"

Lamar Odom checked himself out of rehab in early January after a one-month stay to work on his "mental and physical health." It looks like the former LA Lakers player is taking all the right steps to maintain his sobriety after his nearly fatal overdose in a Nevada brothel in October 2015, but it seems that his completion of rehab is only one small part of it. Lamar, who struggled to deal with his "demons" during his marriage to Khloé Kardashian from 2009 until 2013, opened up about everything from his drug use to his relationship with his kids in an interview on The Doctors on Tuesday.

Lamar admitted that he now knows how to better cope with the numerous losses he's suffered in his life, including the death of his 6-month-old son Jayden in 2006. He also revealed that his kids, Lamar Jr. and Destiny, visiting him in rehab helped him through his "breaking point." In another clip, Lamar's team reacts to his revelation that he wants to patch things up with Khloé. "That didn't surprise me one bit," said Geno, Lamar's friend and sponsor. "What we want is what matters to us, and I know that relationship is real. The longer that he's sober, the more that love comes back." No matter what happens, it appears that Lamar has truly turned a corner.
