Once again, Lamar Odom is rumored to be cheating on Khloe Kardashian. Is that why he went ballistic on a paparazzo yesterday? On Wednesday afternoon, the NBA player was caught on camera walking into the middle of a busy L.A. street with a crowbar. He then proceeded to open a photographer's car, hurl all his equipment into the road, cross the street, do the same to another photographer's car—and then politely take a cell phone photo with a fan. Watch the video below!
TMZ caught most of the incident on tape, and now reports that Lamar was, indeed, being harassed about those rumors that his marriage to Khloe is in trouble. The latest story comes via Star magazine, which claims that Lamar had a year-long affair with a 29-year-old woman he met at a Washington, D.C., strip club. After growing suspicious about Lamar's extra-curricular activities, Khloe reportedly banished him to a separate bedroom, and ultimately kicked him out of the house.
“Things have been very, very tense in the house for a great deal of time,” a source told RadarOnline. "Khloe kicked Lamar out of their bedroom several months ago and he was sleeping in one of the mansion’s guest rooms. She fears Lamar has been cheating on her with various women. It really irked Khloe when Lamar was blatantly caught going to a strip joint."
As always, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars are putting up a united front. ("They're more in love than ever," a friend told the Daily Mail on Wednesday.) In fact, there's another good reason why Lamar might have been angry at the paparazzi, and it has nothing to do with the state of the Kardashian-Odom union. According to Khloe's twitter, a paparazzo trespassed onto their private property on Thursday night, infuriating the couple. Here's how Khloe reported it:
Khloe went on to accuse the paparazzi of "stalking," and praised Lamar for fighting back.
"F**k the papz!!!! You f**king losers!!! " she tweeted. "But shout out to my hubby for posing with the fans! I love my Lam... Hehehe I just love my hubby :)"
Rumors of marital trouble have always followed this couple, and resurfaced last May after they put their reality show Khloe & Lamar on hold. "We just wanted to prioritize a little. We just wanted a little pause," Kardashian told People at the time, in a cover story called Fighting For My Marriage. "Part of being married is knowing when your husband needs your support."
Earlier this year, Khloe defended her relationship against the tabloids on her Celebuzz blog.
"It is a complete waste of time to address these reports every time they print these ridiculous and absurd tabloid stories, but not only are these stories untrue, they’re also unfair to the people who buy the magazines expecting to read accurate reports," she wrote in January. "I’m happily married to a wonderful man and fall in love with him more and more each day, and we’ll have a baby when god wants us to and when the time is right. These blatant lies are distasteful and shameless."
Here's hoping that their marriage is as rock-solid as Khloe says it is! If they're fighting as hard for it as Lamar is fighting the paparazzi, then they should be just fine.
