Lamar Odom Implies Khloe Kardashian Wanted To Meet Up With Him, So Hopefully Their Latest Interaction Wasn't As Tense As It Sounds
It may have been weeks since Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom finalized their divorce, but that definitely doesn't mean they've lost contact. On Wednesday morning, Odom was spotted interacting with Kardashian outside of her SoulCycle class, but it's not clear if he was invited to meet her or not. Witnesses who spoke with TMZ claim they saw the meeting go down and say it looked like the NBA player was following and harassing her, as Kardashian was reportedly giving off cues that she did not want him there. But now, Lamar Odom has spoken out about the Khloe Kardashian interaction himself and he claims he wasn't following her and that she asked him to be there. Bustle has reached out to Kardashian for comment, but has not yet heard back.
According to the people who say they saw Odom approach Kardashian, he was allegedly aggressive in trying to get her to talk to him, even grabbing her arm and yelling at people who threatened to call the cops. Supposedly, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star yelled, "How did you know I was here?" and got in her car and left instead of going to her class. If it really did go down like that, I can imagine fewer things less pleasant than being ambushed by an ex-husband at 6:45 in the morning, especially if he was acting like the witnesses say he was.
However, Odom tells a very different story. When he was later approached by TMZ reporters, he went on a rant about how his ex-wife asked him to be there, and explained that he's upset she hasn't come out to make a statement about how their encounter was a mutual thing.
According to Odom,
I am not, not, not the person that you're trying to make me out to be. Whoever's doing it. I live in Las Vegas. So was there an address or a place given, or I just guessed right, where this girl may be? You know I know, Khloe, right? So how would you think I ended up there? ... It's hard for me to keep my composure ... I'm a womanizer, a drug addict, everything ... Nobody got followed, nobody got hassled, nobody got harassed, nobody got grabbed on, none of that. Probably what's the most hurtful part is I beat her to the punch. I didn't want to come up here. Somebody should be calling up here, saying, "Hell no, that didn't happen."
It's hard to tell what to believe, especially since the 31-year-old reality star still hasn't spoken out. Hopefully, Odom's side of the story is the right one, because if it isn't, this sounds like an upsetting situation for Kardashian to have to deal with.
