“They are not dating,” a source tells PEOPLE of Lamar Odom and personal trainer Sabrina Parr
The former NBA player, 39, shared posts about Parr on Saturday, expressing his appreciation for her and even calling her his “new woman.”
Alongside a photograph that showed off the health and life coach’s fit physique, Odom included a quote from Malcolm X.
“It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong, what do you do? You integrate it with cream… But if you pour too much cream in it, you won’t even know you ever had coffee,” reads the quote, to which Odom added the hashtag “Black Royalty.”
“I’m a bit disappointed to read that people are using my words to enforce their own perceptions and assumptions pointing towards things that are not MY TRUTH OR REALITY,” he wrote, referencing some of the comments he had received. “This post isn’t against anyone including my ex wife that I still respect deeply.”
Odom and Kardashian tied the knot in 2009 just one month after they met. The pair split after four years of marriage, and their divorce was finalized in 2016.
“I am just PRO love. Can I do that without people feeling offended?” he added. “Why does that make you mad? Our black women have been held down for centuries! I am now deciding to send them and my NEW WOMAN a lot of love.”
