Was Lamar Odom “caught trying to ruin” Khloe Kardashian’s birthday? That’s the bold claim that surfaced on Monday, the same day Kardashian turns 32. But Gossip Cop can reveal what’s really going on.

Star blares in a headline on its website, “Khloe’s Nightmare! Lamar Odom Caught Trying To Ruin Kardashian’s Birthday Amid Divorce Showdown.” The tabloid goes on to ask, “Khloe Kardashian may be preparing to celebrate her birthday on June 27, but is ex Lamar Odom gearing up to ruin her day?” Making use of a clickbait photo gallery, the outlet writes, “Khloe’s estranged husband was caught leaving a liquor store in L.A. on June 25, only nine months after he was found unconscious from overdosing at a Nevada brothel.”

In other words, Star is sensationally alleging Kardashian’s birthday on Monday may be “ruined” because Odom was photographed outside a liquor store on Saturday. The magazine doesn’t have any actual evidence of the former NBA star actively “trying to ruin” his estranged wife’s special day. In fact, the outlet even asks readers after they click through all the photos, “Do you think Lamar will try to ruin Khloe’s birthday with his downward spiral?”

But here’s what’s really going on: Star saw the photos of Odom, and because today is Kardashian’s birthday, the tabloid decided to link the entirely separate events in an outrageous way just to score web traffic. There’s just not a shred of proof to back up the headline. Ordinarily, Gossip Cop wishes celebrities a rumor-free birthday. Thanks to Star, that can’t be the case for Kardashian now.
