Former NBA star and ex-husband to popular reality star, Khloé Kardashian, Lamar Odom has revealed he is a sex addict.
Lamar disclosed that his sex addiction led him ‘to do drugs’, which led to his broken marriage and near-death experience.
According to him, he has slept with more than 2,000 women.
Lamar disclosed this in his new memoir, ‘Darkness to Light’ posted by ‘People Magazine.’
The NBA champion said, “I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember.
“I am a sex addict,I had sex with more than 2,000 women. There were too many strippers to count.
“It wasn’t a big deal, but often I would pay them. I never thought less of them.
“I cheated on Khloe Kardashian throughout our marriage; when she eventually discovered the infidelities I was shocked and embarrassed.
“I wanted to take it back, but you can’t. I wanted to hide it. But that sick sin was hard for me to hide. I had a problem.
“I ran out of porn to watch! That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard.
“Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs. Because you double up on [that] good feeling.
“My overdose incident at the Love Ranch brothel in Las Vegas, where I nearly died was the wake-up call. Like, this can’t happen again.”
Odom who is now drug-free, however, admitted that he’s still an addict but won’t go back into the darkness.
“I’m still an addict, I still struggle but I will not go into the darkness. Ever again.”
Odom was married to Khloé Kardashian for four years before they split in 2013.
