“Lamar just wants to put his truth out there because there have been so many lies written about him,” a source told Us Weekly. “He just wants to set the record straight. It shouldn’t be considered a hit against Khloé or the Kardashians. There might be some things in the book that the family doesn’t want out there, but Lamar isn’t doing this to hurt them. Lamar is happy for Khloé, but it’s bittersweet because even after all this time, he still loves her. But he recognizes that she had no other choice but to move on from him.”
The former Khloe & Lamar star confirmed to In Touch in July that he was in fact working on a book, and while he didn’t dive into specifics, he insisted “everything” would be covered. The insider added the book will also detail his time in the NBA, substance abuse battle, and his childhood.
This news comes shortly after it was revealed that Lammy allegedly wanted to do a Kardashian ex spinoff with Tyga, Scott Disick, and Kris Humphries. “They would talk about what it’s like living in the chaos that those women create,” a source told OK! in August. Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner is obviously not on board, as a source put it, “She wishes Lamar the best, but a show about her daughters’ exes complaining? No way.”
Khloé filed for divorce in 2013 after his infidelity and substance abuse issues led to the demise of their marriage. She revoked her request in the fall of 2015, when Lamar suffered a nearly-fatal drug overdose at a Las Vegas brothel. Their divorce has since been finalized — and today the E! personality is pregnant, expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
