Lamar Odom has been making headlines over the past couple of weeks because of his supposed drug use. Neither he nor his wife has released any statements when it comes to this supposed drug use, so it is surprisng that the family has been able to keep silent for so long. Every day, it seems like another mistress or another source is coming forward with stories and rumors. And now, he is dealing with legal issues. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Sept. 10, Lamar Odom is now facing a lawsuit over an older paparazzi incident, where he tossed photography equipment into the streets.
Apparently, the photographer decided to sue Odom over the incident, even though it happened months ago. “The pap, whom TMZ identifies as one Stefan Saad, claims Lamar assaulted him and destroyed more than $15,000 worth of equipment,” reports TMZ. “The Kardashian clan has apparently come to believe that it is above the law, and has some exceptional privilege to disregard the rights of others,” the lawsuit reportedly says. "The Kardashian clan are not only wealthy and attractive — but also deeply flawed.”
The lawsuit comes at a bad time, as Odom is trying to keep a low profile with all of the rumors of drug use. The last thing he needs is a lawsuit to tarnish his image even more. The photographer is suing Lamar for “assault, conversion (stealing property), and trespass of property,” reports TMZ. Apparently, Stefan and his legal team seem to think that Odom should pay $565,000 not including punitive damages.
Do you think the timing is suspicious?
