Among some of the darker passages in the book, Odom recalls a time where he was hallucinating on cocaine and got upset at Khloé for trying to hold an intervention. At one point, he even threatened her life and started smashing walls.

 

“At that point, I couldn’t tell reality from fantasy. I was on ecstasy and coke. I was sure that people were coming for me. They wanted to get me.”

 

The drug addiction also lead Odom to become a sex addict, with his infidelity being the prime reason for the deterioration of his marriage. Many of his more outrageous sexual escapades are documented, as well as a specific moment where Khloé caught him and took her anger out on the women violently.
