Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom is being labeled as “gay” because someone misinterpreted a term used in a video he made while joking around with a male friend. Because of this misinterpretation, the rumor got started that Lamar Odom is gay. Dec. 11 news reports from Show Biz Spy, Sports World News, and International Business Times explain how this misinterpretation came about.
How the Rumor Got Started
It all started with a video Lamar made which surfaced about three weeks ago. In the video, Lamar and his friend Jamie Sangouthai are seen standing in front of the camera clowning around with their shirts off, performing a silly rap duet. Lamar admits that he was drunk when the video was filmed, and at one point he can be heard slurring his words and as he says:
“And when Khloe’s out of town, I still be on the DL.”
Dual Meaning of “DL” or “Down Low”
DL is slang for “down low” which is simply a reference for sneaking around, doing something behind someone’s back, or on the sly.
But someone has zeroed in on the alternate meaning of the term which refers to a man who acts straight secretly sleeps with men, and has tried to pin that label on Lamar. See Infidelity 101: What is the down low and why is it so hard to detect?
If Lamar Odom really was on the “down low” as in the second reference to the term, he certainly wouldn’t be announcing it to the world. And considering the fact that Lamar cheated on Khloe Kardashian with multiple mistresses, two of whom passed lie detector tests, it probably isn’t true.
What Lamar probably meant, if his drunken ramblings cam be believed, is that he was seeing another woman on the side while Khloe was out of town.
Khloe Grasping at Straws
Now Khloe is grasping at straws trying to link this twisted “down low” reference to her sex life - or lack thereof, with Lamar. Regarding Khloe’s reaction, this is what the source had to say:
“She never understood why Lamar lost interest in having sex with her earlier this year, but if he’s living a secret gay life, that could explain it.
Khloe was so devastated by Lamar’s infidelity that she was willing to latch onto anything to justify why Lamar cheated on her rather than admit the truth.

That’s how the drug rumors about Lamar Odom got started. The rumors were a Kardashian clan attempt to justify Lamar’s multiple affairs. See Kardashian Family Lay the Groundwork to Exploit Lamar Odom on Reality TV The implication was this:
Lamar must have been high on drugs because why else would he cheat on Khloe, his loving and devoted wife?
It’s highly possible that the “Lamar is gay” rumor, like the drug addiction rumors, may have originated with someone in the Kardashian clan to get revenge on Lamar for humiliating Khloe.
