Lamar disclosed this in his new memoir, ‘Darkness to Light’ posted by ‘People Magazine.’
The NBA champion also revealed that his sex addiction led him ‘to do drugs’, which led to his broken marriage and near-death experience. He said:
“I have been obsessed with s*x for as long as I can remember.
“I am a s*x addict,I had s*x with more than 2,000 women. 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.
“I cheated on Khloe Kardashian throughout our marriage; when she eventually discovered the infidelities 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.
“I ran out of p*rn to watch! That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard.
“S*x was a trigger for me to do drugs. Because you double up on [that] good feeling.
“My overdose incident at the Love Ranch brotheel in Las Vegas, where I nearly died was the wake-up call. Like, this can’t happen again.”
Odom who is now drug-free, however, admitted that he’s still an addict but won’t go back into the darkness.
“I’m still an addict, I still struggle but I will not go into the darkness. Ever again.”
Odom was married to Khloé Kardashian for four years before they split in 2013.
