'Keeping Up with the Kardashians': What Happened To Lamar Odom?
Lamar Odom was not only part of the Kardashian clan years ago, but he was also a former NBA player who played for some of the biggest basketball teams. Today, Odom is on a new path of healing and love... check out what happened to Lamar Odom and what he's up to today!
Most people relate Lamar Odom back to his marriage with former wife, Khloé Kardashian, as well as his drug and substance abuse that occurred later on. So, what is the NBA star up to now? He's actually built up an entire new life for himself...
Former 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star: Lamar Odom
While being married to Khloé Kardashian from 2009-2016, Lamar was found unconscious at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada in October 2015. He suffered from multiple heart attacks and strokes, which thus led him into a coma. Of course, Khloé was there to support him, but the pair finalized their divorced in December 2016.
Fast forward 3 more years, and Lamar is doing vastly better than seemingly ever before. He now is engaged to health and life coach, Sabrina Parr, and completely gushes over her in his social media posts!

The look on @getuptoparr face is how she makes me feel everyday. Outside of my daughter, this is the most serious and committed relationship I've ever been in with a woman. I'm tired of people asking me questions about my ex's based on old interviews and old comments! I said what I said then based on where I was in life at that time. I was young, wasn't sober and going through a lot. All of that is different now. I'm at where I want to be at!
Sabrina, 32, and Lamar revealed their engagement just recently on November 11th, 2019! The pair recently celebrated Lamar's 40th birthday, in which she threw an enormous surprise party for him. Outside of his relationship life, Odom was also recently seen on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
Although he was eliminated in the second round, he told Entertainment Tonight, "I learned that I can do just about anything if I put my mind and my heart and soul into it, which I did with this competition. This was a humbling experience for me."
Lamar Odom's career
Unfortunately, due to his past medical issues, Lamar is unable to perform as well as he used to while playing in the NBA for teams like the L.A Lakers and Clippers. He has told People magazine that he has "horrible memory loss" that has also affected his long-term memory, and even his overall balance. Although he tried to play for Ice Cube's basketball league, the Big3, he was released from the team the first week because of his inability to perform well.
But, Lamar still keeps smiling! He's now incredibly thankful for escaping death, and to start a new journey with his soon-to-be wife, Sabrina.
We wish Odom, his family, and Sabrina the best of luck for their future endeavors!
