Khloe Kardashian Admits To Dark Times: Could Lamar’s Overdose Push Her Over The Edge?

Khloe Kardashian is currently celebrating the release of her new book, Strong Looks Better Naked, and in it, she shares everything from coping with her father’s death to partying quite a bit when she was younger. There won’t be anything about Lamar Odom in the book, especially in regards to this overdose, as it happened just as the book was ready to hit bookshelves.

But Khloe Kardashian does get personal in her new book, and she shares details about how she coped after her father’s death. Back in 2003, Khloe lost her father, Robert Kardashian Sr. to cancer, and she was heartbroken. Rather than talk to her sisters about her grief, Khloe turned to partying and drinking to drown her sorrows.

According to a new Radar Online report, Khloe Kardashian is now revealing that she may know exactly what Lamar Odom went through a few weeks ago when he overdosed at a brothel in Las Vegas. Both Lamar and Khloe have been depressed and tried to use drugs and/or alcohol to drown the world out.

“I was 19 at the time, and to say I didn’t handle his death well is an understatement,” Khloe writes in her book, adding, “I didn’t turn to drugs, but I certainly drowned my sorrows in drink, and the partying soon got out of hand. I was underage and behaving recklessly in clubs and at private parties.”

Khloe had her connections to get into clubs, and she took everything she was offered. Some of her partying was documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as she was stopped driving under the influence while filming the show. At this point in time, she was older, but she did address how it was so easy to fall back into the partying when she was depressed.

“During this period, I became aware of how easy it is to become a binge drinker… I see pictures of myself at the time and I was so bloated that I look like I’m 45 years old!” Khloe Kardashian reveals in her book, adding that she pulled away from “concerned” family members and surrounded herself with party pals, saying, “It was pretty much, ‘Don’t worry. We can get you into this club.’ Or, ‘Here, have one more drink for the road.'”

While Lamar Odom may be headed to rehab to get his life back on track, especially when it comes to something basic like walking, Khloe Kardashian admits that she herself was very close to seeking treatment. But Kourtney Kardashian decided to help her younger sister.

“I didn’t end up in rehab… because Kourtney put her foot down and forced me to take control of my life, but I probably came close,” Khloe reveals, adding that she now deals with stress by working out and writing.

And Kardashian may be dealing with more stress these days, as Lamar is still in the hospital recovering from his overdose a few weeks ago. Khloe stepped out over the weekend to celebrate her mother’s birthday, and according to Hollywood Life, Khloe didn’t want anyone asking her about Lamar’s health.

“It was a night for celebration, so any talk about Lamar’s health was banned from the night by Khloe,” a source has revealed, adding, “She didn’t want it to put a damper on her evening and hoped that a night out with her family would be the distraction they all needed away from everything.”

It sounds like Khloe Kardashian wants to protect Lamar Odom as much as possible so he can recover in private. Khloe’s book, Strong Looks Better Naked, is available now.
