Despite being one of the nation’s most famous athletes, Lamar Odom still managed to get completely star-struck by former boxer Mike Tyson when the pair ran into each other at the HBO Golden Globes after party on Sunday January 12.
The 6-foot-10 NBA star approached the former heavyweight World Champion like any other fan and introduced himself.
“He looked almost embarrassed,” an eyewitness tells In Touch. “But he walked up and shook his hand then the pair embraced. It was sweet. You could tell Lamar was really excited to meet Tyson.”
The pair then posed for several pictures together before sharing another hug and going their separate ways.
“Lamar had this big grin on his face as he walked away,” the eyewitness shared. “He looked really pleased with himself.”
The 34-year-old former Clippers star spent the rest of the night hanging out with a couple of friends at the bar and chatting to fans who approached him for pictures.
“He looked healthy and happy,” revealed another onlooker. “He was just relaxing and having a good time.”
Lamar and his estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian, put their former marital home on the market last week for $5.49 million. Khloé filed for divorce on Dec. 13, 2013 citing irreconcilable differences.
