Before you make Lamar Odom out to be the 'crazy stalker ex,' he's letting the world know things aren't always as they seem on TMZ.
On Wednesday, the entertainment news site reported ex-wife Khloé Kardashian was "ambushed" by the former NBA star during an early morning visit to SoulCycle in Beverly Hills. Eyewitnesses say Odom came out of nowhere, screaming at her and demanding that they talk.
The report claims at one point Odom touched Kardashian's arm, to which she yelled, "Get off of me, get off of me. Stop. Stop." Passersby threatened to call the police, but Odom allegedly replied, "You're not going to call the cops on Lamar Odom."
When Kardashian asked how Odom knew she was there, eyewitnesses say he didn't give a clear answer. They added that she looked "visibly freaked out" and quickly went to her car and drove away.
Quite the story, but Odom says it didn't go down like that. In a interview with TMZ following the incident, he said he never ambushed Kardashian. Instead, he implied the pair had agreed to meet.
"I live in Las Vegas, so was there an address of the place given or I just guessed right? [...] Did I just guess right where this girl may be, that I know?" Odom questioned.
"So now I'm asking you-- you know I know Khloé personally? How would you think I ended up there? [cameraman: I would think that there was some communication between you two.] Okay then."
A visibly upset Odom said it was difficult to keep his composure with all the damaging stories that have been published about his personal life. He said he was fed and ready to "bite back" if need be.
"The dog has to bite back. That's it, you won. You beat me down, degraded me, said I would do everything in the world ... I'm a womanizer, a drug addict, everything. [...] It's over. If it happens again, I will air everything out," Odom added.
Last month, Odom and Kardashian signed their divorce papers, nearly two years after the reality star called it quits. She is rumored to have moved on to fellow basketball player James Harden.
