How did Lamar Odom shades Khloe Kardashian and confess his love for Taraji P. Henson?
While doing an interview with Page Six for his latest reality TV stint, College Hill: Celebrity Edition on BET, Lamar was asked about his love life. Lamar had to admit which of his exes he wants to reunite with the most.
The answer was not Khloe. Lamar chose Taraji.
“I love Taraji. It’s a love thing. It’s about who you love,” he expressed. “Taraji is a cool girl. Matter fact she’s here [in L.A.]. I got to see her at the BET Awards in June. So maybe I’ll get to shoot my shot at her again.”
Lamar and Taraji dated for several months back in 2009, right before he met and married Khloe. When he was reflecting on his love for his two exes, Lamar threw some serious shade at Khloe and her famous family.
“I think the difference between Taraji and Khloe is how they was brought up. Their upbringing, which makes people different and [affects] the way they think. I think Taraji is more skillful in what she does as an actress compared to what Khloé does,” the former NBA player shared with the website.
