Khloe Kardashian praises ex-husband Lamar Odom for sharing addiction struggles in new memoir

Today marks ten years that she met her ex-husband, Lamar Odom, before marrying him one month and one day later, on September 27, 2009.

And while the couple went through their ups and downs very publicly before making their separate ways in 2013, Khloe Kardashian proved she had nothing but nice things to say about her ex.

In a Keeping Up With The Kardashians promo, the 35-year-old is seen talking to sister Kim about Lamar's new memoir that details behind-the-scenes of their lives, including his struggles with alcohol and drugs.

'The article came out today about what Lamar wrote about,' Khloe began, revealing momager, Kris Jenner, had sent it to her.

When Kim asked about how she felt about the press the NBA star was doing, she said she was 'fine' with it.

'It's his truth, he's allowed to tell his version. Him and I each played a significant role in each other's lives so I think it's natural, like, if I talk about my past, I would hope that my marriage would be a chapter that I would talk about and for him, the same thing.'

Khloe continued praising her ex for telling his truth, revealing that there was a lot of topics she never felt she had the right to open up about, despite being married to Lamar.

'If this is his story to tell - a lot of this stuff was never my place to ever talk about, but, it's definitely his place, it's happened to him.'

The Good American went on to call the professional athlete 'courageous' for sharing his dark past.

'If this is a form of his healing or therapy then I actually think it's really courageous to talk about the amount of addiction he's had, like the depths of it.'

She continued: 'So it doesn't bother me, I appreciate that it's so honest.

Khloe also praised her ex for admitting he liked filming the Keeping Up With The Kardashians and their spin-off, Khloe and Lamar - revealing it was him who pushed for the show.

Lamar's biography, Darkness to Light: A Memoir, was released at the end of May 2019.
