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.
She’s been a huge support to her troubled husband Lamar Odom throughout his struggle with drugs and alcohol, so it’s a bit surprising that Khloe Kardashian was unaware that he checked in to rehab.
According to a report, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” starlet was left out of the conversation regarding Odom’s treatment and found out he was in a rehabilitation facility the same way as the rest of us- she read it in the news.
Shortly before Lamar Odom was busted for drunken driving Friday morning (August 30), TMZ reports the basketball player was visited by drug counselors from the NBA –in an attempt to help him.
Khloé Kardashian Odom's husband had his driver's license suspended for one year following his DUI arrest on a Los Angeles freeway, E! News has confirmed. A city spokesman explained that Odom doesn’t have a current license, and that he’ll have to take a written test to reapply—in one year.
