If you are one of those who think that the number in the headline is a facade, I am sorry, YOU ARE WRONG!
Former NBA star and Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom in his new memoir, ‘Darkness to Light‘ exclusively excerpted in PEOPLE, has revealed he is suffering from sex addiction and has slept with over 2,000 women in his “sexual career”.
In his words, he said;
I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember.
I am a sex addict. 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 also disclosed that he cheated on his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian throughout their four-year marriage and she eventually discovered the infidelities. According to him, it was embarrassing and shocking.
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.
He went on to reveal that one of the moments he knew he had a problem was when he “ran out of porn to watch.” He said;
That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard.
He added that using drugs didn’t help his situation either because he had to double up on the “good feeling.”
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, where he overdosed and Khloé was there 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.”
Addiction is real guys, so if you know anyone suffering from any form of addiction, don’t hesitate to refer the person to the appropriate channel.
