“I wish I would have done things different with her,” Odom said of Henson in the clip. “She was a little older than me, but I learned a lot from her because that was the most significant relationship as a grownup that I had with a Black woman.”

“Things ended with Taraji because of me being an immature punk. I didn’t know how to tell her that I was falling in love with another woman named Khloé Kardashian,” he continued.
