“I’ve had sex with more than 2000 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.”
Lamar also shed more light on his struggle with addiction in his new memoir, Darkness to Light. He explained that his sex addiction was also a trigger for him to do drugs, and enabled him to cheat on Khloe Kardashian while they were married.
“I wish I could have been more of a man,” Odom reflects. “It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.”
Odom was hospitalized back in October 2015 for a near-fatal drug overdose after being found unconscious in a room at the Love Ranch Brothel in Nevada, an experience Odom says was “the wake-up call” for him and the catalyst for his journey to sobriety and recovery.
Odom spent months recuperating after his brush with death, and received a lot of public support from his estranged wife, Kardashian, before they eventually finalized their divorce more than a year later.
Although he is drug-free, he 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.”
Darkness to Light is out May 28.
