Sabrina Parr shared her side of the story.
The 34-year-old health and life coach went on Instagram to promote her memoir, “The Freedom In Walking Away.”
She also took the chance to tell her followers about what happened between her and her ex-fiancé Lamar Odom.
“A year ago today, I officially walked away from my ex-fiance. I did not tell a soul (not even him); I just left! I knew the more I continued to talk about my unhappiness, the more I would stay comfortable being in it,” Parr wrote in the caption, adding a picture of her book.
She added that they were “less than a year away from getting married” and that she felt “scared, hurt, and unsure of the outcome, but I knew if I stayed, I would never be free.”
Parr then revealed that she quit her high-paying job because she “was miserable” and that she “missed out on so much” with her life due to its very busy nature.
She continued, “I had a one-year-old daughter and was pregnant with my son at the time. I didn’t know how I would make money or what I would do. I just knew if I stayed at that job, I would never be free.”

Parr also claimed that she was married to “an abusive husband but a loving father.”
She continued, “In my life, I’ve had to walk away from so many things and people to regain my peace. Leaving my ex was by far one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. In this book, you will learn about the truth in that situation. You will learn about so many problems in cases that happened in my life where I had to walk away. You will hear about how holding someone else’s hand was suffocating mine!”
A Different Tale
Odom also reflected on his past relationship and drug abuse on the same day.
The 42-year-old former NBA star celebrated his sobriety with an emotional Instagram post. He took to the photo-sharing site earlier today and uploaded an image macro that reads: “A post for my exes and next…”
He reflected on his past relationships and his “toxic” romance with Parr.
“A year ago yesterday I left my ex fiance’ at the W Hotel in Atlanta without notice. When she realized I was gone back to my home in San Diego she was livid. I received over 250 calls and text messages over the course of last December from her wanting to fix us. We were toxic. Independently and collectively,” Odom captioned the post.
Freedom From The Abuse

He admitted that leaving her left him heartbroken, but it “saved” his soul as he claimed that “the relationship was abusive.”
As he’s used to always having somebody around, he revealed he wanted to reunite with Parr, and that he was “addicted to the abuse.”
He continued, “The addict in me hated being alone, the man in me wanted a pretty face to wake up to, it was hard. Late nights and early mornings alone wears on a brother. I sought solace in marijuana and a slew of random women, not loving any of them, not really wanting to be with any of them, but it beat being lonely.”
Odom then shared that his “soul opened up” one day, prompting him to change solely for himself.
“My team had worked hard to get me a fresh start. I had to honor that 🙏🏽” he noted.
Odom added, “Today, I am free. Drug free. Marijuana free. Relationship free. I am rebuilding a relationship with myself. With my family. I am focused on my faith. My growth. My brand. I am a legend. I own that. I am a recovering addict. I own that too. Stand in your truth. Do not believe everything you read. Luckily my team keeps record of EVERYTHING so I am reminded of how far I have come. I have not arrived yet. I will not let troubled exes from my past haunt me. I will stand in my truth. I owe that to myself and whomever God places next in my life.”
Late last year, Odom and Parr have split for good after reconnecting a month prior. The former has accused his ex of using him for monetary reasons.
