Lamar Odom has admitted he was a 'sex addict' who slept with '2,000 women', including strippers and prostitutes.
The 39-year-old NBA star has opened up about his 'obsession with sex' and admitted it 'wasn't a big deal' to pay for it.
The basketball professional even admitted that he cheated throughout his four year marriage to Khloe Kardashian and that it was his infidelity that finally put ended their relationship.
In his new memoir, Darkness to Light, Lamar reveals how he was obsessed with sex from the moment he knew about it and that, along with a drug addiction, it almost cost him his life.
People.com has reported that Lamar wrote: “I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember... I am a sex addict.”
Revealing details of his obsession, Lamar added: "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."
These habits continued while he was married to Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe and Lamar admits he was 'embarrassed' when she discovered his cheating and the extent of it.
Speaking to People.com, he said: "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.”
Lamar revealed that when he wasn't having sex, then he would turn to porn for a fix but eventually, even that was not enough.
He added: “[I] ran out of porn to watch! That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard.”
And his sex addiction led to drugs.
Lamar said: ""Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs. Because you double up on [that] good feeling."
It was these addictions that led him to visiting the Love Ranch brothel in Las Vegas in 2015, where he almost died following an overdose.
Lamar said he realised his life couldn't carry on down this path. He is now free of his drug addiction but said that he is still battling demons but is on a more positive route.
He admitted: "That was the wake-up call. Like, this can’t happen again."
