Lamar Odom nearly died from an overdose at a brothel in 2015.

Apparently, mixing those vices was quite common for the former Lakers/Clippers/Heat/Mavericks forward.

Odom has opened up about his cocaine addition before, including how it damaged his marriage to Khloe Kardashian. Now, he’s addressing his sex addition, which intersected with his drug problem.

Aili Nahas of People:
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 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. [I] wanted to hide it. But that sick sin was hard for me to hide … I had a problem.”

“Sex was a trigger for me to do drugs,” he tells PEOPLE. “Because you double up on [that] good feeling.”

Hopefully, Odom finds a lifestyle that brings him peace. There have been mixed signals about his ability to do so in the aftermath of his near-death incident.
