Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom reveals he slept with Over 2000 women
Lamar Odom is opening up for the first time about a crippling sex and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.
In his new memoir, Darkness to Light exclusively excerpted in PEOPLE, the NBA champion writes, “I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember.”
“I am a sex addict,” the 39-year-old reveals that he has had sex with more than 2,000 women. “There were too many strippers to count,” he writes. “It wasn’t a big deal, but often I would pay them. I never thought less of them.”
Odom’s addiction to sex was compounded by his addiction to drugs.
“Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs,” he tells PEOPLE. “Because you double up on [that] good feeling.”
Odom also reveals that he cheated on Kardashian throughout their marriage; she eventually discovered the infidelities.
“I was shocked and embarrassed,” he tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “I wanted to take it back, but you can’t. wanted to hide it. But that sick sin was hard for me to hide … I had a problem.”
Now Odom is drug-free, but admits that he’s still working through his demons.
I’m still an addict,” he writes in his book. “I still struggle … [But] I will not go into the darkness. Ever again
