Lamar Joseph Odom (born November 6, 1979) is an American professional basketball forward, who is currently playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. Lamar recently married Khloe Kardashian joining the ranks of athletes hooking up with reality starlets.
The problems and the drama just don’t seem to stop for Lamar Odom. Khloe Kardashian’s husband is being sued by a photographer over a violent incident in July. He’s accused of taking the shutterbug’s equipment out of his car and destroying it by throwing it into a roadway.
At the time of the incident, the photographer (Stefan Saad) was questioning Odom about rumors he’d been cheating on his wife. Saad is now suing the NBA player for more than $565,000 in damages.
He’s been at the center of crack-smoking rumors for weeks, but Lamar Odom insists he’s not hooked on the rock.
While out and about in Studio City, the troubled NBA star told a paparazzo that he isn’t a drug addict and therefore isn’t in need of professional counseling. Also, he’s planning on playing basketball this season.
