Lamar Odom is ready for his comeback.
After nearly succumbing to a drug overdose in late 2015, Odom has announced plans to release a tell-all book about his troubled life as a professional basketball player turned reality star.
“I have a book coming out, an autobiography about my life,” he revealed to In Touch Weekly magazine at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports awards on July 13. “[The book will cover] everything. Everything. It’s a free-for-all. [I’ll be] open about everything that’s been going on in my life, about the past.”
“Lamar is going to include never-before-told secrets about cheating, sex, and drugs, the booze, the pills, the cocaine, all of it,” a source added to the magazine about the upcoming publication.
Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Las Vegas nearly two years ago and in the months that followed, he fought for his life in a Los Angeles hospital with his now-ex-wife Khloe Kardashian at his side. As fans will recall, Kardashian and her family rushed to Odom's bedside after learning of his drug overdose and remained supportive of the former athlete as he recovered.
Months later, in December 2016, Odom entered rehab in an effort to maintain his sobriety for the sake of his two children, Destiny and Lamar Jr.

“After consulting with his family and friends, and meeting with Dr. Travis Stork of The Doctors, [Lamar] has decided it is best he take time to focus on himself," a rep for Odom told Us Weekly at the time.
"He is dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle and being the best father he can be to his children. Lamar asks that the public please respect his privacy at this time and truly appreciates the love and support of his family, friends and fans. He will talk about his journey in January on The Doctors.”
According to a separate In Touch Weekly source, Odom "has nothing left to lose" and everything to gain by releasing a book and could make as much as $10 million for his tell-all.
