AceShowbiz - Lamar Odom has given his fiancee Sabrina Parr credit for helping him quit his porn addiction. Admitting that giving up porn was harder than quitting drugs, the professional basketball player says it wasn't until he's with Sabrina that he gave a serious thought on his issue, which could've put their relationship in jeopardy.
"I think men don't really understand how it affects your intimacy. As I started to get closer and closer to Sabrina, she brought it to my attention," Lamar shares in a video to promote application Covenant Eyes. "She said - 'No, you're not going to be in the bed with me and watch porn.' "
Meanwhile, Sabrina recounts, "I started noticing Lamar was looking at porn the first couple of weeks of knowing him. He was reaching for his phone more than he was reaching for me. I had a problem with that. The very first conversation was like 'Hello? I'm right here. What are you doing? Why are you doing that?' "
Sharing the video on her own Instagram account, Sabrina reveals how she helped Lamar give up porn. "When I first met @lamarodom he had a SERIOUS porn addiction. I didn't understand it. I didn't know what to do. But I knew I wasn't going to deal with it!!!!!" she shares.
She recalls giving him an ultimatum, "The choices were; either you stop watching porn or I'm OUT!" While "Lamar decided to stop watching porn," Sabrina reveals "it wasn't easy for him and he would be easily tempted."
The life coach says she used to confiscate Lamar's phone during the day so he wouldn't watch porn, but "as flattered as I was, I didn't like that idea because a man needs his phone!" She then turned to Covenant Eyes, an application that blocked Lamar's access to porn.
Lamar also gives a shout out to the application on his Instagram post. "Thank you @covenant.eyes for helping me to stop watching porn, and adding pure intimacy in my relationship with my fiancee @getuptoparr," he writes. "I know there are some men out there that are struggling just like I was. It really helped me and I am honest now porn free!!!!! You should really look into this! It's just an app so no reason to be ashamed!"
Lamar and Sabrina got engaged on November 11, after dating since August. Their engagement announcement caught his family off guard as his son Lamar Morales Odom claimed that he hadn't heard about it until he read it online.
Regretting his initial reaction, Lamar Jr. then posted on Instagram, "Last night I was emotional seeing my father got engaged through social media. At the end of the day, I am a teenager, that is becoming a young man. I have to be responsible for what I post, I have nothing but love for my dad and want what's best for him."
