Lamar Odom lost his temper as he walked up to a photographer’s car and threw all of his equipment out onto the street.
It came amid reports of marital trouble between the towering 6ft10 basketball player and his wife Khloe Kardashian, after a woman coming forward to claim she had a year-long affair with him.
Photographs show Lamar Odom, 33, rifling through the back of a car belonging to one of the photographers and furiously throwing his camera and equipment into the middle of the street.
Lamar Odom then walked over to another photographer’s car holding what looked like a tripod while the cameraman stood by, allegedly smashing the car.
He then proceeded to pick up the equipment from the middle of the street and put it in his own car, while carrying the metal rod.
Witnesses claimed Lamar Odom snapped after demanding to speak “man to man” with the paparazzi.
When they continued to take his photo, it is claimed, Lamar Odom turned on them.
A group of people in a celebrity tour bus happened to be driving past, and the delighted tourists stopped to watch and film the commotion.
Oddly a fan jumped out of her car after the incident to have her picture taken with the star – and taking a break from his rage he politely obliges.
Lamar Odom’s angry behavior is especially bizarre considering the fact he and his wife and her family are known for actively courting the press.
A publicist for the family did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the photos.
However, sources close to Khloe Kardashian claim that the split rumors couldn’t be further from the truth.
“They’re more in love than ever,” a source explains.
They added: “Khloe did not kick Omar out of the house, they are 100% fine.”
According to Star magazine, Khloe Kardashian had kicked Lamar Odom out of the house after discovering he had been cheating on her since at least January last year.
The report named 29-year-old brunette Jennifer Richardson, who Lamar Odom supposedly met at the Stadium Club strip club in Washington D.C. after he played a game for the Dallas Mavericks.
