As a member of the Kardashian clan he courts publicity – even starring in his own breakout reality show.
But it seems Lamar Odom finally tired of the attention as he turned on the paparazzi in dramatic fashion on Wednesday.
The towering 6ft10 basketball player lost his temper as he walked up to a photographer’s car and threw all of his equipment out onto the road.
It came amid reports of marital trouble between Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian, after a woman coming forward to claim she had a year-long affair with him.
Lamar then walked over to another photographer’s car holding what looked like a tripod while the cameraman stood by, allegedly smashing the car.
He then proceeded to pick up the equipment from the middle of the street and put it in his own car, while carrying the metal rod.
When they continued to take his photo, it is claimed, Odom turned on them.
A group of people in a celebrity tour bus happened to be driving past, and the delighted tourists stopped to watch and film the commotion.
Oddly a fan jumped out of her car after the incident to have her picture taken with the star – and taking a break from his rage he politely obliges.
Lamar’s angry behaviour is especially bizarre considering the fact he and his wife and her family are known for actively courting the press.
A publicist for the family did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the photos.
However sources close to Lamar’s wife Khloe have told MailOnline that the split rumours couldn’t be further from the truth.
‘They’re more in love than ever,’ a source explains.
They added: ‘Khloe did not kick Omar out of the house, they are 100% fine.’
According to Star magazine, Khloe had kicked Lemar out of the house after discovering he had been cheating on her since at least January last year.
The report named 29-year-old brunette Jennifer Richardson, who Lemar supposedly met at the Stadium Club strip club in Washington D.C. after he played a game for the Dallas Mavericks.
