Lamar and Sabrina went public with their romance in August. Three months later, the former Lakers star popped the question to the life coach on November 11. Prior to their engagement, Lamar confessed that he had stopped watching porn completely in an effort to better himself. He has also turned to religion to help keep him on the right path.

"This is the first time in Lamar’s entire life that he has been clean of drugs, marijuana, porn addiction, sex addiction. Him and I don’t even have sex, believe that or not. Once Lamar got saved, he developed a relationship with a pastor and there’s a lot of things he just wants to grow — areas he wants to grow in — and things he wants to improve on as a man. And as a man, the pastor suggested to him, it’s not Godly if Christians like to have sex before marriage. And obviously he’s already had sex, so he couldn’t cut that out, but he said, ‘A great sacrifice to God would be to withhold from sex until you guys got married.’ And so, I think he really respects the pastor’s opinion and his voice," Sabrina explained to Hollywood Life.

Sabrina confessed that she thought it was a good idea, but that she wanted Lamar to reach that same conclusion on his own. "And I also explained to Lamar how it honors your woman when you don’t touch her, and when you wait, and God repays you for that. And so, I wasn’t going to force him either way because it’s his own relationship with God and I don’t want … He’s very new in being saved, so I didn’t want him to develop opinions based on what I am doing or am not doing," she said.

She continued, "I allowed him to make a decision. But I said, ‘Whatever decision you make, let me know.’ And he really made the decision to not have sex with me until we get married, which is kind of why he wants to rush the marriage. But I’m just in no rush. So, he’s doing very well with it, surprisingly. I just really thought this would be a struggle for him, just because he’s never had to abstain from sex before. I don’t think he’s ever considered it.”
