EXCLUSIVE: Lamar Odom Opens Up About Khloe Kardashian Moving Forward With Divorce

Lamar Odom has finally addressed the rumors that he has started partying again and that his marriage to Khloe Kardashian is officially over. ET caught up with the former L.A. Laker at the Staples Center on Wednesday night, where he attended Kobe Bryant's record-breaking final game.

"I've never been better, especially after tonight," Odom told ET's Kevin Frazier. "He had 60 [points] tonight. He is the world, learned so much from him off the court, on the court, everything kinda translates and life is beautiful."

The former NBA star, 36, lent his support to his "older brother" Bryant in a recorded video message earlier in the evening. Speaking with ET, he also addressed the rumors that he has started partying again after his hospitalization and rehabilitation following an incident last fall where he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.

"I mean, it gets tough, especially if so much gets speculated," he said of the photos that surfaced of him out at a bar. "Only a few people know the truth, and I just keep that close to my heart."
