Lamar Odom recently began making significant changes in his life, including ending a dirty habit that was causing problems in his current relationship.

The former NBA player’s new girlfriend Sabrina Parr revealed she has banned Odom from watching pornography and she believes it has improved their “intimacy.”

Speaking to TMZ, she said: “He doesn’t do that anymore. He was a sex addict. You can’t watch porn if you’re a sex addict and have a healthy life. Or be with me, so… It’s been maybe about a month. It’s improved our intimacy because it’s just us now.”

Parr also revealed she has put the 39-year-old former NBA star on a strict diet and exercise regime.

She said: “He’s doing a mile run in the morning, He’s working out. We’re changing his palate, he’s eating different things now, drinking more water. I cut dairy out of his diet.”

Parr, a 32-year-old life coach, was recently asked why she decided to pursue a relationship with Odom considering his previous problems, including a struggle with drugs, alcohol and sex addiction and a near-fatal overdose in a brothel in 2015, but Parr insisted the “pain and the drama” had come at a different time in his life.

She said: “I wasn’t attracted to the pain and the drama.

“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.”

Odom was married to Khloé Kardashian from 2009 to 2013, but they split due to a combination of his addictions and infidelity.
