It looks like Lamar Odom has a new woman in his life—and unlike some of his past exes including Khloe Kardashian, she’s actually African-American. Plus, she’s BAAAD!

The former NBA star and recovering drug addict recently opened up about his new relationship with Sabrina Parr to Gary With The Tea on Dish Nation.

Lamar told Gary, “It’s the truth. She’s Black,” to which Gary quipped, “When a Black woman comes along, ain’t playing.”

Sabrina, who was there, jumped in be clear: “Oh no, I was not playing at all.”

“Yeah, she keeps it real,” Odom added.


Parr, a health and life coach opened up about why embarked on a relationship with Odom, even knowing about his past, a past he chronicled in his new memoir.

“I wasn’t attracted to the pain and the drama,” revealed the 32-year-old.

Adding, “You have to meet people where they are. He was never in a position to be someone’s husband, you know? He was sick, he needed to heal, he needed to grieve. He experienced a lot of losses. And he never had time to go through that.”



The Cleveland native is also a mother of two, who by the looks of it, absolutely adores her children and her role as a mother.

All the hustle and bustle, back and forth, late night and early morning grind… is all for my babies!!!! I swear if I didn’t have kids, I would have prolly shacked up with one of these rich men and pretended like I really liked him a long time ago lol 🤷🏼‍♀️ Now I REFUSE to show them any relationship that isn’t true love, commitment and healthy!! Plus, they make me wanna go get rich on my own! Give them everything they desire and teach them how to go get it for themselves when they get older too! I’m the young girl thats really out here taking care of herself without a 9-5 making it happen. If you know me personally, then you know oh too well all I do for them! Just want y’all to know where my motivation comes from. What’s your motivation to keep going???? . . #motivation #mompenuer #motherhood #hustle #tbt

There’s something really special about a woman that truly loves herself! I think a lot of ppl have a misunderstanding about what loving yourself really is. It doesn’t mean you think you’re perfect and that you don’t have any struggles. To me it means that you love yourself enough to accept your imperfections and to overcome your struggles. . . A woman who loves herself is constantly growing, progressing and evolving! A woman who loves herself doesn’t force ppl to deal with HER issues. Instead she deals with her own issues first so that she can present her healthiest self to everyone around her. This is not easy! It takes a lot of truth to do this. . . There is always an underlying reason why we have the issues that we have. If you can figure that part out, than you can heal! . . For me growing up, I had abandonment issues. I needed to be good at something or to create something so ppl could pay attention to me. I did this because I was missing the love and attention I felt a little girl needed. The problem with needing attention is that when you don’t get it, you act out and it only hurts you more. I had to heal from that. . . I can honestly say that after years of therapy, counseling, prayer, fasting, crying, journaling, running, isolation and reading... I learned to pay attention to myself and see that I was a pretty awesome girl! I use to think something was wrong with me now I’m so whole that when I hear ppl don’t like me I think something is wrong with them lol. . . My advice, figure out your underlying issues, take responsibility for yourself, and HEAL because the world needs what you have to offer! What do you have to offer to the world? I wanna hear below in the comments..... . . #wcw #getuptoparr
