One year after announcing their engagement, the former professional athlete and the personal trainer are going their separate ways. Parr confirmed the breakup news in a message on her Instagram Story on Wednesday, Nov. 4. "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," she wrote to her social media followers. "This has been a difficult decision for me to make but it is the best for myself and my children."
Parr went on to claim that Odom "has some things that he alone needs to work through." Though she did not get specific, Parr also noted, "I love him dearly but I am no longer able to be by his side while he seeks the help he so desperately needs. I wish him all the best and I am asking that you pray for everyone involved."
The 40-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers star has yet to speak out publicly about the split or Parr's statement. E! News has reached out to Odom's rep but have not heard back.
In Nov. 2019, Odom took to social media to introduce his fiancée. Alongside a photo of her engagement ring, Odom wrote, "Soon to be Mrs. Parr-Odom. She the ONE!!!!"
The post appears to have been deleted.
Odom, who was previously married to Khloe Kardashian, celebrated his engagement to Parr in September, sharing a series of photos on social media. "I had a great time at my engagement party with the special ladies in my life @getuptoparr @destinyodomm," he wrote. "It was so important to me for my family and friends, especially my daughter to be there with me this time around."
He added, "Special thanks to everyone that made our day so perfect."
Odom last posted about Parr in October calling her "beautiful and motivational."
As fans may recall, Odom has been very open about his journey with addiction over the years following his 2015 hospitalization. In 2019, he released a memoir, Darkness to Light, in which he reflected on his struggles. At the time of the book's release, Odom told his followers, "It took a lot of courage for me to get so raw and candid with you all but I wanted you guys to get MY true story!"
