Lamar Odom Addresses 'Troubled Exes' as He's Addiction-Free After Dumping 'Toxic' Fiancee

The former NBA player pens a lengthy message to celebrate his sobriety, refusing to let 'troubled exes' haunt him after calling off an 'abusive' relationship.

AceShowbiz - Lamar Odom is breaking free of the chains that bound him. In an Instagram letter to "his exes and next," the former NBA player is celebrating as he declared himself free from drug and porn addictions after leaving a "toxic" and "abusive" relationship.

Referring to his most recent relationship with Sabrina Parr, he wrote, "A year ago yesterday I left my ex fiance' at the W Hotel in Atlanta without notice. When she realized I was gone back to my home in San Diego she was livid. I received over 250 calls and text messages over the course of last December from her wanting to fix us. We were toxic. Independently and collectively."

While he was heartbroken by the split, he insisted it "saved [his] soul" because "the relationship was abusive." He was tempted to take her back many times but ultimately decided not to.

He got candid about his issues, "The dysfunction in me was addicted to the abuse. The addict in me hated being alone, the man in me wanted a pretty face to wake up to, it was hard. Late nights and early mornings alone wears on a brother. I sought solace in marijuana and a slew of random women, not loving any of them, not really wanting to be with any of them, but it beat being lonely."

One day, he realized he needed to get clean up, "My soul opened up, light bulb went off and I wanted and needed to change for ME! My team had worked hard to get me a fresh start. I had to honor that."

"Today, I am free," he declared. "Drug free. Pornography addiction free. Marijuana free. Relationship free. I am rebuilding a relationship with myself. With my family. I am focused on my faith. My growth. My brand. I am a legend. I own that. I am a recovering addict. I own that too."

He went on, "Stand in your truth. Do not believe everything you read. Luckily my team keeps record of EVERYTHING so I am reminded of how far I have come. I have not arrived yet."

The basketballer who was previously married to Khloe Kardashian also added, "I will not let troubled exes from my past haunt me. I will stand in my truth. I owe that to myself and whomever God places next in my life."

"I truly love you all for loving me," he concluded his lengthy post with a message to his fans.
