Lamar Odom has officially come out of hiding, and he came with an autobiographical book titled, ‘Darkness to Light’ where he is revealing secrets about himself and those around him. He’s got some juicy information and also plans to make a movie based on his life.
We already know about his relationship with Khloe Kardashian and the complications they had while he was struggling with addiction. In his book, he reveals there was a time where he ended up threatening to kill her while we was hallucinating on cocaine and ecstasy, which he also spoke about on his Good Morning America interview. What we didn’t know about was his secret relationship with Taraji P. Henson.
The two met over ten years ago in Hollywood, CA, at a party where the two hit it off immediately. Of course, Henson made sure to let him know that this wasn’t about to be a one nighter type of ordeal. Odom wrote, “She was just such a wise woman that she could see right through whatever smooth act I was trying to put on. She refused to be just another conquest, and truthfully, I didn’t want her to be.”
After this, the two began hanging out together and even publicly. According to Lamar, they even chilled together at their celebrity friends’ homes such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Even then, they chose to keep their relationship a secret from the media. Despite the secrecy, they were thinking about seriously building a life together.
“I think just to get that love from a black woman, and their perspective of life from her point of view, was important for me at that point in time,” he wrote of his time with Henson.
Odom has been known for normally talking to women outside of his race, so Taraji definitely was something special for him. He admitted in his book that she was the only Black woman that he had a romantic connection with.
“I don’t think I ever connected with another black woman as deeply as I did with Taraji,” Lamar said.
Despite their connection, Lamar connected with his sex addiction more and ended up cheating on the Baby Boy actress. He admitted that he tried his best to remain faithful, but with Taraji not being ready to have sex yet, he couldn’t resist his ‘cravings.’
“I felt guilty, but I was craving immediate sex,” wrote Odom. “Things were amazing, but of course, God gave me a layup, and I blew it. … We continued to spend a lot of time together, and she was a big part of my life, even though I wasn’t being faithful to her.”
The relationship came to an end when he refused to fly to China to see her while she was filming Karate Kid. He wanted to support her, but he feared that he wouldn’t be able to fuel his addiction to cocaine while he was in China.
After their break up he soon got married to Khloe Kardashian in 2009 after knowing each other for 30 days.

Friday, May 24th, a photo of her and her date were posted on her older cousin’s Twitter with the caption “When your lil cousin takes Sasha Obama to prom.” This post has since been deleted but has been reposted by other users.
Her mother and our former First Lady, Michelle Obama, 55, and her older sister, Malia, 20, were there to see the teenager off. They were seen in the pictures, and you could see security in the back of one of them so maybe our former President, Barack Obama, was in attendance. A,l,so, there was her date’s family and a younger brother who is in the picture with the prom goers and Malia.
The 17-year-old was wearing a classic, black spaghetti strap dress with a knee-high split. She had her hair styled long and straight with simple yet dramatic makeup. Her date was looking dapper in a black tuxedo with a black bowtie.
Twitter loved the pictures and said things like:
“My God she’s a stunner” tweeted advocate April Reign.
“Sasha Obama is becoming THAT girl. Our next supreme” said one follower and another follower responded, “Rightfully so, she’s gorg!”
One even addressed her date saying, “Could you imagine being 16/17 and having the heart to ask Sasha Obama to prom? This guy deserves a medal!!!”
Sasha is a senior at Sidwell Friends School in Washington D.C. and has not announced her future plans yet. There is a rumor that she’s possibly attending the University of Michigan in the fall.
Her father, Barack, has a history of jokingly threatening comments at his daughter’s dates but has no interest in taking over their dating lives.
He says in an interview in 2016 with Raleigh, North Carolina’s WDCG radio station, “The truth is, I’m pretty relaxed about it for two reasons. One is Michelle — she’s such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence. Hopefully, I’ve been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife.”
Sasha has it easy since her older sister had to go to prom first. Michele discussed Malia going to prom in her memoir writing, ”Barack and I shook the young man’s hand, snapped a few pictures, and gave our daughter a hug before sending them on their way,” she wrote. “We took what was perhaps unfair comfort in the knowledge that Malia’s security detail would basically ride the boy’s bumper all the way to the restaurant where they were going for dinner before the dance and would remain on quiet duty throughout the night.”
