And as acquired from the live interview, he hoped it would help him reconnect with aggrieved loved ones.
“Hopefully, me going to public speaking can bring me closer to the Kardashians and help me rebuild that bridge,”
He also made an exciting revelation into his past relationship with Khloe, claiming he never regretted featuring on the family’s reality show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’

LAMAR PREVIOUSLY SHARED AN HEARTFELT MESSAGE TO KHLOE
Before the TMZ interview, Lamar spoke to ET, where he thanked his ex-wife and her family while discussing his new book “Darkness to Light: A Memoir.” Although he claimed that things were not as before between him and Khloe, he stated that they still talk.
He went further ahead to state:
“I love you (Khloe) and thank you for being there for me when I couldn’t walk or talk.”
The emotional statement is believed to be in regards to his 2015 near-fatal overdose, which saw him hospitalized. He and Khloe were separated, and a divorce was in motion. Nevertheless, she put everything on hold, and as revealed by reports, Khloe was by Lamar’s side while he recovered.
Lamar’s book, “Darkness to Light: A Memoir” offers an insight into his life, relationships, career, and addictions.
