Lamar Odom's New Book Details the Death of His 6-Month-Old Son, Jayden

By

In his new memoir Darkness to Light, Lamar Odom details his cheating, drug abuse, and hardships. The former NBA star discusses his addiction and how he nearly died from an overdose in 2015 at a Nevada brothel. 

Sitting down with Entertainment Tonight, Lamar explained the start of his substance abuse issues, revealing that it was the death of his six-month-old son, Jayden, that pushed him over the edge. 

“The only [people] I could depend on at that point was my close family members,” he told ET’s Kevin Frazier. "But that was probably the hardest part of my life. I dug deep [to get through.] I got on God's coattails and just rode them, like I'm doing now.”
