Lamar Odom tells People he deeply regrets how he treated ex-wife Khloe Kardashian during their seven-year marriage. “I wish I could have been more of a man,” the former NBA star says, while admitting that he was unfaithful to Khloe and hid his cocaine addiction from her. “It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.” He adds, "I hope we can be friends. I miss the family. I hope we can all be reacquainted one day.” Odom also writes about Khloe in his upcoming memoir Darkness to Light, "At the start of our marriage, I was faithful to her, [but] I could not handle the lethal cocktail of the spotlight, addiction, a diminishing career, and infidelity." Darkness to Light arrives on May 28.
