Lamar Odom became a trending topic over the weekend after a clip from a 2019 interview, in which he discussed his former relationship with Taraji P. Henson, made it’s way onto social media.

Besides the fact that folks didn’t know L.O. and Taraji dated, they were even more shocked by his admission that he left Henson for Khloe Kardashian.
The former Lakers star opened up about his past relationship with Henson during an episode of TV One’s Uncensored.
The Think Like A Man actress and Odom began dating in 2009 after meeting at a party, and subsequently broke up when Lamar, as he explained, “fell in love” with Khloe Kardashian, who he later married.
Fast-forward to this past weekend, when the clip gained traction once again after it resurfaced on both Twitter and Instagram.

While another said: “Now why would he tell us he cheated on our good sis Taraji with side chick Khloe?”

Meanwhile in response to all the chatter Odom says he’s “continuing to choose the high road.”
On Jan. 2, while tagging a few outlets in his caption alongside a black-and-white photo on Instagram that read, “I see the tabloids are clout chasing to gain followers, it’s 2022, cut the games!,” Lamar wrote, “WHY is an interview from 2019 being shown and played? Where are my royalties since it seems as if I am in syndication. @tarajiphenson nothing but love for you always. Let’s not feed the masses.”

Taraji has yet to say a word about the ordeal .. we’re sure she hopes Odom does the same.
