Lamar Odom Secretly Dated Taraji P. Henson: I Don’t Think I Ever Connected With Another Black Woman As Deeply As I Did With Taraji
Lamar Odom (39) is sharing even more personal stories in his upcoming book, Darkness To Light: A Memoir.
While most of the public is well aware of the former NBA star’s public relationship with Khloe Kardashian, Lamar also reveales that he quietly dated actress Taraji P. Henson (48). Explaining how they met, he writes:
“We ended up exchanging numbers. She was just such a wise woman that she could see 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.”
He says that they got “hot and heavy” and claims he even met her son.
“We started secretly dating and quickly fell in love. She introduced me to her fourteen-year-old son, Marcel, and was at my house nearly every day. Sometimes she’d bring some of her Hollywood friends, like actress Sanaa Lathan who starred in Love And Basketball.”
He says that dating Taraji was
“one of the happiest times of my life.”
“I don’t think I ever connected with another black woman as deeply as I did Taraji.”
Lamar says that infidelity ended their relationship.
“Things were amazing, but of course, God gave me a layup and I blew it.”
Lamar later marred Khloe in 2009.
