Just one day after Lamar Odom “attacked” Khloé Kardashian outside a Beverly Hills SoulCycle, he spoke to the press and alluded to the possibility that it was not a coincidence the estranged husband and wife crossed paths.
The 35-year-old said, “I live in Las Vegas. So was there an address or a place given, or I just guessed right? Did I guess right where this girl may be? I know Khloé, so how would you think I ended up there?”
And now, a source close to the 31-year-old reality star claims she was in on it — despite reports suggesting she was “shocked” and bothered by the incident.
“Khloé had been talking to him on the phone leading up to the incident at the gym,” the source tells Radar Online.
“Khloé had mentioned to Lamar that she would be going to the gym the next morning, and he showed up because he wanted to talk to her. Lamar didn’t grab Khloé and [he] wasn’t stalking her.”
When Lamar was made out to be a monster in the reports, he was understandably bothered — and his feelings only escalated when he found out the altercation is potentially being used as a plot in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“After a picture of the incident was published, Lamar obviously got very upset,” the source says. “He has also learned that this is going to be part of Khloé’s drama on the next season of KUWTK and it makes Lamar sick that she betrayed him.”
When speaking to In Touch the day after the incident, Lamar insisted they “spoke [beforehand].”
“A misunderstanding between me and my wife became public. It’s hurtful,” he lamented.
“That woman is my wife,” he added, explaining that seeing her with other men — like her new beau, James Harden — “is weird. And the weirdest part about it is because I really know how she feels about me.”
