Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom hasn’t had the best year, and things had the potential to get a lot worse for the NBA player when he arrived to a swarm of paparazzi at LAX earlier in the week. The paps – being paps – couldn’t resist the opportunity to harass the hubby of one of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars, and there was nearly a confrontation between them and basketballer when Lamar felt that his personal space was being invaded a little too much.
TMZ got it all on video (naturally), and the action began when Lamar was walking through one of the airport terminals. After arriving at the baggage claim, he was surrounded by paps firing endless questions at him. He coolly warned them, “Don’t antagonize me,” and mentioned that one of the photogs nearly mowed him down trying to snap a pic. The pap denied it (again, naturally – these guys are so predictable), and Lamar again told them in not so many words to back off and that he wasn’t interested in talking.
He wasn’t all icy glares and harsh words, however, and when a young fan approached him moments later, Lamar happily posed for a photo. Now see? There’ s the man that Khloe Kardashian married, not the drug-addicted, cheating stranger that temporarily took over last summer. The paparazzi must have felt the same way, because one of them announced, “There’s the real Lamar!” The basketball player immediately fired back, “You don’t know the real Lamar,” which shut them up for, oh, about 2 seconds.
The real burn didn’t come until a few minutes, however, as Lamar was making his way toward his car. As the paps continued to come at him from all directions, he singled out the one who allegedly almost ran into him earlier. Heading toward the photog, he reaches out as if to shake his hand, and when the pap extends his own hand, Lamar pulls that “I’m too cool for you” move and slyly pulls his hand back, faking the guy out. “That was the ultimate diss!” yells one of the photographers while they all laugh and Lamar gets into his waiting car.
Lamar:1. Photogs. 0
So what do you think about Lamar Odom’s latest run-in with the paparazzi? Are these photographers out of control or are they just doing their job? Personally, I think that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians cameras are the only ones that need to be rolling, but that’s just me. Tell us what YOU think in the comments!
