Share this:

Lamar Odom spoke to Scott Disick about his recovery following a drug overdose back in October. The 36-year-old admitted that he was "scared half to death" at the time.

In a sneak peek of the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, the retired basketball player discussed the incident with reality TV show star Scott, who admitted that he was terrified when he visited Lamar in the hospital.

In the clip, Scott asks Lamar: "You been sleeping all right?" to which Lamar replies: "Yeah, that's all I've been doing."

Lamar revealed he was "taking it day by day"

Scott continued to talk about Lamar's hospitalisation, saying: "I was super scared when I came and saw you in the hospital ... you remember everything?" with Lamar replying: "Yeah, I can remember being scared half to death. I was trapped in my body. I couldn't even say excuse me or thank you."

Khloe Kardashian's estranged husband then admitted he was still "taking it day by day."

Lamar's appearance on the show follows the news that Khloe has filed for a divorce for a second time, citing irreconcilable differences. According to sources, the star was waiting until the time was right to file for follow through with divorce proceedings during Lamar's recovery, with an insider telling People magazine: "This was always the plan. The divorce has never been officially off. Khloé was waiting for the timing to be right."

Khloe filed for divorce in late May

She revealed that she had put off her divorce after Lamar's near-fatal overdose last year, telling KIIS FM: "I just thought it was really insensitive to [expedite the divorce]. I get it, I get why it's confusing, I understand all of that."

Lamar's wife has previously spoken about his recovery, telling Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live: "He's walking and talking. I'm not laughing because it's funny. I'm laughing because it's literally a miracle.

"This person was in a coma. I was told he had four hours to live. He wasn't talking."
