VIDEO: Lamar Odom Confronts Paparazzi, Khloe Kardashian Comes to His Defense
Lamar Odom had a big altercation with paparazzi in Los Angeles on Wednesday, taking photographers’ equipment and allegedly damaging a car — and part of it was caught on camera.
The NBA star reportedly erupted after being taunted by photogs, leading Odom to take equipment from one of the pap’s cars and throw it into the street. He then allegedly used a metal bar to damage another paparazzo’s car, before picking up the equipment and storing it in his own vehicle. Before leaving the scene, a fan arrived — and Odom obliged her photo request. Details about the bizarre incident are still unclear, but Odom’s wife Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter after video surfaced to defend her hubby’s actions in a series of tweets.
Though Odom appeared to be on a busy L.A. street at the time exchange was caught on camera, Kardashian wrote, “wow can’t believe a paparazzi snuck into our gated area and violated our private property!!!!” “This is the same pap that did a hit and run but my brother and I caught him and he has the nerve to taunt us!!!” she continued. “Be ashamed of your self.” Kardashian went on tweet, “F**k the papz!!!!! You f**king losers!!!!! But shout out to my hubby for posing with the fans! I love my Lam!” “This becomes stalking at some point!!!!! Its wild!!!! #F**kThePaps,” she added in her rant.
A source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop that one of the paparazzi involved “constantly” taunts the Kardashian family, noting, “He did the same thing yesterday to Rob [Kardashian] and others.” The photographer, we’re told, allegedly “pushed it too far” this time, and our source stresses that the usually non-confrontational Odom “was only mad at that pap guy who keeps taunting and doesn’t stop.”
“Enough is enough,” adds our insider. And it’s worth noting that, at this time, Odom has not been accused of any crime, and no police reports have filed. Reps for Kardashian and Odom have not yet responded to a request for comment.
