Lamar Odom got into a very heated argument with a few photographers on Wednesday afternoon. The incident ended with the 6’10â€³ NBA player attempting to destroy one vehicle and the contents inside another â€” and it was all caught on camera.
The pap attack comes on the heels of speculation that Odom and his wife, socialite Khloe Kardashian, 29, are having marital problems. Lamar, 33, stands accused of having an affair with Jennifer Richardson, an exotic dancer whose pal sold the dish of her alleged affair to Star magazine. Richardson reportedly collected plane tickets, invoices and game tickets during an affair with the hoopster that lasted from December 2012 until February 2013.
According to Splash News, the athlete started simply chatting with the photographers before yelling:
“Put your cameras down and let me talk to you man to man.”
A defiant Lamar argued in his own defense:
“I would never cheat on my wife, that’s why I wear my wedding ring.”
That’s when things got heated.
Angry that the men wouldn’t stop snapping photos, Lamar allegedly grabbed a piece of metal and smashed the side of one of the photographer’s vehicles as the man pleaded with Odom. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star then went over to the next paparazzo’s car and removed a large camera bag and threw all of the contents out on the street.
A bus of tourists drove by just in time to look on in awe.
Odom later went back, picked up the contents of the camera bag off the street and threw them into his Mercedes sedan before driving off. The hoopster did not physically touch any of the photographers.
