Lamar Odom is pissed off that his reputation has been ruined, and he wants everyone to know he’s not a stalker. Yesterday we reported that Lamar jumped out of a car and ambushed Khloe Kardashian on her way to work out. Well, the former NBA champion player may have been accused of verbally attacking his ex-wife outside of a Soul Cycle class, but he wants everyone to know he was set up.
During a very emotional chat with TMZ, Lamar told them he lives in Las Vegas, so how would he just know where Khloe is unless someone told him?
“But an enraged Lamar went off … denying he stalked her, touched her or ambushed her — and in a powerful rant says the meeting was actually prearranged with Khloe. He’s hurt that she’s not standing up for him. Even further, he threatens to spill secrets — whose, he doesn’t say — if something like this happens again.”
Lamar says his life has been so damaged by the Kardashians and TMZ, that he probably couldn’t even get a job at Home Depot. Ouch! Watch the videos of an emotional Lamar Odom breaking his silence.
From being dropped by the NBA to his divorce from Khloe Kardashian to the death of his best friend Jamie Sangouthai, life has thrown Lamar some hard times. But it looks like he’s finally had enough of having his character attacked in the press.
“Do not disrespect my space. Do not disrespect my character because that’s what y’all been doing. From day one, even if half the things were true, the people know who I am. Y’all have discredited me, beat me down, took my confidence, took everything away from me and you will not do it again. I know what you’re company is about. I know what they doing to brothers. I know why y’all doing to the rappers. I know you want them beefing. I know you want them arguing. You don’t do Leo like that. You don’t do Brad like that. And I sat back and took that sh*t for two years straight. Can’t nobody bounce a ball better than me and nobody want to f*ck with me.”
Wow. He’s right about no team wanting to deal with him: Lamar was dropped by the New York Knicks in 2014 and hasn’t been picked up by another team. Unfortunately, his career is probably over.
While TMZ can’t take all the blame for everything that happened in Lamar’s life, the reality is public perception has an immense effect on business. What team or brand would be willing to work with someone who is in the tabloids everyday?
Lamar Odom has been under the spotlight since he married Khloe in 2009. The reality shows didn’t help either; you could definitely tell that he wasn’t comfortable with all of the attention. It was only after his separation from Khloe that we learned about his reported struggle with drugs. When a video of him and his late friend Jamie Sangouthai emerged, it seemed to only prove the rumors of his rampant drug use.
In TMZ’s defense, they’re just doing their job and they certainly have moments where they are a great news source. But just like Lamar said, TMZ wouldn’t be able to keep the lights on over there if they didn’t stalk Chris Brown‘s every move. At some point, one has to question why certain celebrities are targeted and others aren’t.
Regardless, we wish Lamar Odom the best and hope that things work out for him.
