Lamar Odom maintains he did not do drugs the night of his near-fatal overdose in October 2015.

The former NBA star said in a Facebook Live interview with “Addiction Talk” Wednesday night that he was “really hurt” and “embarrassed” when he woke up from his coma and learned that he had ingested drugs.

“I didn’t take anything that night,” he claimed. “I was really hurt and almost in some sense afraid because somebody just tried to take my life.”

Although he didn’t name Love Ranch brothel, where he overdosed, during the interview, he has previously alleged that owner Dennis Hof — or someone working for Hof — was responsible for his hospitalization.

“I think Dennis Hof… I don’t know what he had against me, but I didn’t do drugs that night, to be honest with you,” Odom claimed on “The View” in 2019. “So I don’t know if he tried to poison me, or … I don’t know what he had against me. He tried to kill me.”

The former Lakers player didn’t realize his addiction was becoming “too much” until it started to interfere with his marriage to Khloé Kardashian.

“‘This is out of control,'” he realized, adding that one night he called the Good American founder when he was extremely high and she showed up with her family to take him to rehab for the first time.

“[They did it] out of love,” he shared.
