- Lamar Odom opened up about being addicted to sex and sleeping with more than 2,000 women.
- In his new memoir, Lamar also said he regretted cheating on Khloé Kardashian.
Four years after he was found unconscious as a result of a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel, former NBA champion and Khloé Kardashian's ex-husband Lamar Odom revealed he has a sex addiction and has slept with more than 2,000 women.
In an interview with People and in his new memoir, Darkness to Light, Lamar opened up about how he regrets cheating on Khloé while they were married. Specifically, he said he "couldn’t keep my d*ck in my pants or the coke out of my nose."
Elsewhere in the book, he said he has a serious problem that goes beyond his past infidelity with Khloé. He said he has had sex with more than 2,000 women and admitted, "I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember. I am a sex addict." He added, “There were too many strippers to count." Though, he said "it wasn't a big deal" because he would pay them sometimes. In the book, Lamar made it clear, "I never thought less of them.”
One of the moments Lamar knew he had a problem was when he "ran out of porn to watch." "That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard," he cautioned. Plus, using drugs didn't help his situation. He explained, "Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs. Because you double up on [that] good feeling.”
Eventually, Lamar's sex and drug addiction brought him to the brothel in Nevada, which is where he overdosed and where Khloé later came to be by his side despite their relationship being over at the time. He called it a "wake-up call" and said he's still trying to overcome his issues and doesn't want to "go into the darkness. Ever again."
