During a lengthy, emotional and often-incoherent interview with In Touch magazine just one day after the SoulCycle incident, Lamar Odom insists he didn’t assault or “ambush” his ex Khloé Kardashian outside of the spin class and claims it was a big misunderstanding.

“We spoke [beforehand],” Lamar explains to In Touch magazine at Shutters on the Beach hotel bar in Santa Monica.

Continuously referring to Khloé as his “wife,” he adds, “A misunderstanding between me and my wife became public. It’s hurtful. That woman is my wife. Without the ring on my finger. [Even] with her picture being taken with another man, that woman is my wife.”

“She’s [my] soul mate,” Lamar told the mag in his rambling interview. “I can’t control it. We’ll never part. I would never consider myself serious with another woman. To sum it up, if a man is attempting to court Khloé, he’s probably wasting his time.”

Lamar also said that seeing Khloé with other men “is weird. And the weirdest part about it is because I really know how she feels about me.”

In Touch caught up with the former NBA player again one day later, but the interview was cut short when Lamar had to go lie down in a car.
