We knew Lamar Odom had an addiction problem when he overdosed on cocaine at a Las Vegas brothel in 2015, but now the former NBA player is opening up about the depth of his addictions.
In Odom’s upcoming book, Darkness to Light, he comes clean about his insatiable hunger for sex and the fact that he’s had sex with more than 2,000 women including strippers and prostitutes.
“I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember,” he writes in his memoir. “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.”
The 39-year-old exclusively opened up to People’s Aili Nahas about his addictions and repeated infidelity during his four-year marriage to Khloe Kardashian.
“I was shocked and embarrassed,” he told Nahas about Kardashian discovering his infidelity. “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.”
He continued, explaining how his need for sex triggered his desire to get high.
“Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs. Because you double up on [that] good feeling.”
