Lamar Odom recently spoke up about his marriage to Khloe Kardashian and his stint on her family's reality television series, "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
Odom, the 33-year-old NBA free agent, has made headlines in recent weeks for allegedly stepping out on his marriage and battling with a drug addiction that he allegedly only checked into a rehabilitation center for one day to treat. However, he previously refuted claims made by TMZ about an alleged addiction to crack-cocaine and Oxycontin.
While eating lunch at Sweet Butter Kitchen in Sherman Oaks, Calif., recently, Odom did not shy away from responding when questioned about speaking to my wife. The NBA free agent referenced his wedding ring when speaking about Kardashian.
"Do you see my wedding ring on," Odom questioned the TMZ videographer firing questions at him.
He also responded when asked if he enjoyed being featured on Kardashian's reality television series.
"Of course I did," Odom told TMZ. "It almost won an Emmy!"
The basketball player went on to describe his outlook on life.
"It's all about treating people good and being a nice guy," Odom told TMZ.
This is not the first time that the publication has bombarded Odom with questions concerning his marriage. Last month, the basketball player was asked if he speaks to his wife.
"That's my wife," Odom said with a laugh. "Of course!"
While Kardashian has removed Odom's surname from hers on social media, she is still sporting a wedding ring in recent pictures. However, the 29-year-old reality television star did open up about some marital woes the pair were experiencing on her show.
"There's a lot of emotional issues I think Lamar has. I do want to help or cater to Lamar but also, there's only so much anybody can take," Kardashian said on the show. "...Lamar is a very depressed person, which is sad but understandable for everything he's been through in his life. I do love Lamar with every ounce of who I am but it's really scary when someone's in such a deep low and you know they're kind of relying on you to get them out and you're trying and you're trying and you're trying and nothing's really working."
