Lamar Odom and Sabrina Parr have called off their engagement almost one year after the basketball star proposed. Parr took to her Instagram story Wednesday, November 4, to reveal the two have gone their separate ways as Odom needs to work through "some things" alone.
"Y'all know I'm honest and transparent so I have to be the first to let you guys know that I am no longer engaged to Lamar," Parr wrote on a black background.
"This has been a difficult decision for me to make but it is the best for myself and my children. Lamar has some things that he alone has to work through. I love him dearly but I am no longer able to be by his side while he seeks the help he so desperately needs."The personal trainer finished off the message by wishing her former fiancé "all the best" and asking all of her Instagram followers to pray for "everyone involved."
As People underlined, Odom has gone through very public battles with drug addiction in the past, but Parr did not elaborate on what issues his current struggles relate to. The separation may come as a surprise to fans as just last month, Odom shared a sweet snap of the duo on social media as he plugged his then-fiancée's fitness e-book.
In November 2019, Odom announced he had proposed to Parr after just three months of dating and described her as "the one" in a since-deleted Instagram post, according to The Daily Mail. The next day, Parr shared a look at the stunning teardrop engagement ring he gave her.
The proposal came approximately 10 years after Odom proposed to his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian — just one month after first meeting her — with a 12.5 carat diamond ring worth almost $1 million. The couple's whirlwind wedding and marriage were covered heavily on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as well as on their spinoff show, Khloe & Lamar, which ran for two seasons.
However, after two years of marriage, Odom began to cheat on Kardashian and was battling a drug addiction behind closed doors, according to BuzzFeed News. While Kardashian managed to keep both issues away from her family and the reality TV cameras that followed them, when Odom went missing for 72 hours in August of 2013, the news was leaked to the press. She subsequently divorced the basketball player and began speaking about their marital problems on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
