Lamar Odom has not been cheating on Khloe Kardashian with a woman named Jennifer Richardson, despite what Star says. The tabloid is reporting that Odom has been “intimately involved” with his so-called “mistress” for months, and that he “left” Kardashian sometime around June 8. This is false.

You may recall Star as the poorly sourced outlet that falsely claimed Kardashian was “cheating” on Odom with The Game in a laughable cover story last March. Or perhaps you remember Star’s cover story in October 2012 shrieking about the “$67 Million Divorce” looming over the couple — which never happened. Ooh — maybe it was the totally inaccurate claim that Kardashian was having a “$500,000 Surrogate Baby!” that rings a bell.

In any case, Star has no credibility with Odom and Kardashian, which is why it’s getting even more frantic with its “reporting.” The magazine alleges that Odom and Richardson first had a sexual rendezvous in January 2012, and then began a more regular affair last December. There are vague details about the duo’s supposed fling, especially the December 2012-February 2013 period when Richardson allegedly “spent several weeks on the road” with Odom as he traveled as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. The story is almost entirely based on a so-called “friend” of Richardson, who gives lots of colorful quotes about sex and intrigue, none of which is corroborated by Richardson herself.

Meanwhile, even though the fabricated affair supposedly ended around Valentine’s Day, Star says it is set to torpedo the Odom-Kardashian marriage, and that he left her on June 8 amid “increasingly frustrations with Khloe and her family.” “Khloe is freaking out, begging him to come back,” says a so-called “source” for the tabloid. “She even had Kris [Jenner] try to intervene and get Lamar back.” Another Star “insider” says it’s too late: “Khloe and Lamar are headed straight for a divorce.”

Apparently, the magazine believes that if you keep repeating something, it magically comes true. A source close to Odom and Kardashian tells Gossip Cop the report is “not true.”
