Lamar Odom maintains he did not do drugs the night of his near-fatal overdose in October 2015.
The former NBA star said in a Facebook Live interview with “Addiction Talk” Wednesday night that he was “really hurt” and “embarrassed” when he woke up from his coma and learned that he had ingested drugs.
“I didn’t take anything that night,” he claimed. “I was really hurt and almost in some sense afraid because somebody just tried to take my life.”
Although he didn’t name Love Ranch brothel, where he overdosed, during the interview, he has previously alleged that owner Dennis Hof — or someone working for Hof — was responsible for his hospitalization.
“I think Dennis Hof… I don’t know what he had against me, but I didn’t do drugs that night, to be honest with you,” Odom claimed on “The View” in 2019. “So I don’t know if he tried to poison me, or … I don’t know what he had against me. He tried to kill me.”
Hof died of a heart attack in 2019.
Speaking to “Addiction Talk,” Odom said he believes God spared him because He knew Odom didn’t voluntarily ingest any illicit substances the night of Oct. 13. He considers the drug overdose his “rock bottom” that forced him to get clean for good.
