    Interviewers are supposed to get the full story, so yes she was harsh but all the questions she’s asking are pre-approved by his manager so she was just doing her job.

    I swear it’s the owner of the brothel who pretends to be his friend who drugged him

    Okay is this an interview or a meeting with his probation officer? 🙄 I wouldn’t be surprised if she asked him to take a drug test. Her body language is real hostile & her questions are really out of line. I can’t stand people who ask disrespectful questions with a passive aggressive smile. She’s more focused on him doing drugs more than he is.

    She was so condescending! For no reason! Her tone, her expression, her questions, she sometimes even looked disgusted. Do not let her interview again!

    I feel for the guy hes a person's But it's pure Selfishness! My father did a lot of the same things. He wasn't a pro basketball player but he was a successful business man that chose drugs and Infidelity over his family. He lost his company's his family and eventually went to jail. Money and a big city can chew you up and spit you out if your not ready for it!
    It's sad!

    Something about Lamar still wants to lie about the Vegas incident. That and his use of marijuana show that he has more work to do or he will crash again. I fully support him, but his denial is astronomical. He must fully face his losses. And yes, the interviewer acted like he was a bad person. He's never been that.

    Sex addiction is not a classified addiction. It’s an adjunct to drug addiction. Drugs make inhibitions disappear. You have no problem cheating on your partner because you’re already lying and deceiving. Kudos to the guy for getting through it, but I’m sick of hearing about sex addiction.

    She rude because she believes he is lying. He is promoting a book. He claims to have had all those strokes and heart aches while in a coma yet shows no signs of having strokes. He is surely a miracle, my sarcasm. They showed where the brothel was where it allegedly happened, great advertisement for brothel. On top of that he called Khloe a queen.

    Why should the interviewer respect him? After ruining his own life with cocain,he still smokes weed. He deserves no respect. I used to be sad for him when he was in trouble .This guy is really dumb.

    Bit late but I'm glad she is almost emotionless while interviewing. It's professional. If she was all sensitive it would be distracting for him and myself. There is enough emotion in the story itself. She's asking the questions that we all came here to hear and Lamar is man enough to handle these questions, her tone and delivery. All the best Lamar. 💛💙

    The most amazing feeling in the world is when you finally get your hands on a real hacker, i tried so many but none of them came through for me and i almost gave up

    the chase for a legit one but something pushed me to try one more and i can say that is the best decision i have made this year CYBERSPACEINTELLIGENCE@GMAIL.COM or

    HACKINTELLIGENCE on instagram gave me exactly what i was looking for that is why i am recommending him to YOU contact him on CYBERSPACEINTELLIGENCE@GMAIL.COM or

    She's displaying weed in such a negative light that it's as bad as shooting coke or heroin. What a fucking idiot. Fire her!

  • Antonia Faheerty

    Those Kardashians though..say what you want..they stick with their peeps..they didn't have to rally around him, and with Scott..above and beyond. Even Caitlyn until she went all bitchy..even Bruce was hard work. I have a deep hope Lamar is healthy and has done a complete 360 and reconnects with khloe, but if that happens I hope khloe keeps off KUWTK..and they both go off the grid and be happy. He's her lobster. 💗 that guy has been trough so much heartache.

    Bs..dude wanted to kill himself and it wasnt his time to go in God's eyes. Same as matt hughes i feel goinf thru something terrible like with a woman or career you know its over with..u feel theres nothing else..and u hurt that woman so bad and let everyone down..so u try it..and sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. Doing it by drugs is risky not a high chance..matt hughes tried it by train..and i bet he wishes he woulds tried it by hanging..somethijf more of a higher chance. We all have demons we have the choice to choose life or death. We all deal wirh our problems dif ways..ohh and im sure all the lame ass kardashians had sex with more guys then this so dude with women..thots

    This broad needs to be put in the same position as Lamar then see if those questions she’s asking so insensitively still apply. Addiction ain’t something to be fucked with its a disease that people take so lightly and underestimate it at a high level. When they see how much it can control them you’d be scared. This man is telling the truth he’s not on coke anymore and you can see by no sniffling or runny nose. He’s also be telling truth that someone did slip him some shit most likely in that brothel for personal gains or attempted to assassinate. A theory thats
    Not far fetch.
