Khloe Kardashian’s ex husband Lamar Odom has admitted he is a ‘sex addict’ and revealed he has slept with as many as 2,000 women.
The former LA Lakers player split from the reality star in 2014 after he persistently cheated on her and did cocaine during their seven-year marriage.
Lamar details his sex and drugs addiction in a new tell-all book Darkness To Light, which will come out on May 28.
‘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,’ he confesses.
I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember, I am a sex addict. [I] ran out of porn to watch! That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard.
People provided a excerpt from the book.
When Khloe confronted him about his infidelities, he was ‘shocked and embarrassed.’
The athlete added, ‘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.”
The 39-year-old also said that when he was first wed to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is was ‘bliss.’
Khloe moved on quickly from Lamar, dating The Game, French Montana and James Harden.
She had child True with Tristan Thompson in April 2018. But in a parallel nightmare, Thompson also cheated on Khloe with multiple women. They split for good in February.
Lamar writes in his book that he knows he messed up. He is now drug free.
I wish I could have been more of a man. It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.
He also admits that he is completely estranged from the family.
Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner treated him like a son and he was close to Kim, Kourtney and Kendall.
Lamar also had a bond with Rob Kardashian, who lived with the couple for a while, as well as Jonathan Cheban.
And one day he wishes he could get along with the clan.
‘I hope we can be friends,’ Odom confessed. ‘I miss the family. And I hope we can all be reacquainted one day.’
Lamar said his 2009 marriage to Khloe was wonderful.
‘For a while, being with her was bliss and I was the happiest I’ve ever been,’ Odom wrote. ‘We were one of the most famous couples in Hollywood and we made more money together than we had individually.’
But he had demons.
‘At the start of our marriage I was faithful to her,’ he writes.
Then he cheated and he gave into his cocaine addiction.
‘I could not handle the lethal cocktail of the spotlight, addiction, a diminishing career and infidelity,’ he wrote.
‘Oh, did I mention the paranoia, anxiety, depression. … I couldn’t keep my d*** in my pants or the coke out of my nose.
‘Drug addicts are incredibly skilled at hiding their habit. I’d get defensive and Khloe would just drop it.’
His fall was huge. He went from Sixth Man player with the Los Angeles Lakers to playing with the Dallas Mavericks to being without a team and partying with prostitutes.
