Sandy Schultz is the third woman coming forward and stating that she and Lamar Odom had a romantic encounter after the NBA star married Khloe Kardashian.

Lamar Odom, 33, in recent weeks has faced much scrutiny due to alleged affairs and drug use.

Sandy Schultz, a 29-year-old graduate student, told Star magazine that she slept with Lamar Odom last March, but their relationship began years ago. She states that they met at a nightclub in Hollywood in 2003 and then dated for two years before continuing an off-and-on relationship for seven years. Their relationship did not last, however, and Sandy Schultz moved on and eventually got engaged to another man. Sandy Schultz said she ended that relationship to get back with Lamar Odom in 2009. However, Lamar Odom chose Khloe Kardashian over her and married her that year.

Sandy Schultz and Lamar Odom attended a party for Ron Artest (now Metta World Peace) hosted by Khloe Kardashian while he was on the Los Angeles Lakers, and Schultz said Khloe went after Lamar.

“We were sitting at our table having drinks. I got up to go to the bathroom and when I returned, Khloe had taken my seat next to Lamar. She didn’t move, so I sat in his lap,” Sandy Schultz told Star. Sandy Schultz ended up going home early because she was tired, and Lamar Odom never came home.

“He was supposed to be home with me and he chose to go home with Khloe Kardashian instead,” Sandy Schultz said.

“She knew I was Lamar’s girlfriend and she obviously just didn’t care. And Lamar didn’t have the decency to call me that night to say he’d made that decision.”

Sandy Schultz said she ended up seeing Lamar Odom again in March 2012, in San Francisco. Lamar Odom was there to play the Golden State Warriors, and had married Khloe Kardashian by this point.

She said Lamar Odom contacted her.

“It was shocking that he called me since he was married to Khloe,” Sandy Schultz said.

“But at the same time, I wanted to see him and let him see what he missed out on.”

They met at a hotel, and she says “we just fell into each other’s’ arms, hugging and kissing”.

Sandy Schultz and Lamar Odom proceeded to spend two nights together before he returned home to his wife.

The mixed signals on Monday follow reports that Khloe Kardashian’s marriage is on rocky ground due to Lamar Odom’s alleged drug abuse.

Lamar Odom hasn’t been seen for several days and is reported to be holed up in his downtown LA residence, which is a 45 minute drive from the mansion he shared with Khloe Kardashian in Tarazana.

Last week there were several reports that a split will be announced soon, but no announcements have been made yet.

Meanwhile, Radar has claimed that Khloe Kardashian won’t decide the fate of her marriage to her husband until after she is done filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The reason is said to be because Khloe Kardashian doesn’t want to discuss a decision to divorce on the E! reality show.

“Khloe is steadfast, that she won’t decide whether she wants out of the marriage until she is done shooting the current season of the … show,” a sources tells Radar.

“She has been through so much the last year with Lamar, and Khloe just doesn’t want this to be played out in front of the cameras.

“It’s a very sensitive situation, she is being a trooper and is being a total professional while shooting.”

It is unclear what the famous family were discussing or if indeed troubled Lamar Odom even came up in conversation.

They seemed more keen to chat between themselves, as new-mum Kim Kardashian laughed with step-brother Brody Jenner.

Youngest daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner talked with Rob Kardashian, and Kourtney seemed more interested in touching up their lipstick than listening to her mother’s lecture which was seemingly being filmed for the family reality show.

After devastated by cheating allegations and drug abuse regarding Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian, 29, is reportedly still reluctant to pull the trigger and admit that their relationship is over.

But Kris Jenner allegedly has other ideas, and recently took Khloe Kardashian to see a divorce lawyer.

“At Kris’ insistence, Khloe did meet with a divorce lawyer… it was something she was forced into doing by her mom,” a source told RadarOnline.com.

“Kris was very heavy-handed and said Khloe had a responsibility to her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, and the Kardashian brand to distance herself from Lamar,” the website reported.

Later on Friday night, Kris Jenner put her family troubles behind her and attended the William Morris Endeavor pre-Emmy party in Los Angeles.

“WME party with the Fabulous @MarkBurnettTV #brainstorming,” Kris Jenner tweeted.

Posing with Survivor and Amazing Race creator Mark Burnett, Kris Jenner sparked rumors that she may soon be venturing into reality TV.

Officers from the Californian Highway Patrol pulled over the former LA Lakers star’s Mercedes-Benz on the 101 freeway in the San Fernando Valley, California, at 4 a.m.

California Highway Patrol public information officer Leland Tang, told Radaronline at the time that the basketball player also refused a drug test which resulted in the immediate suspension of his license.

The officer said: “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests.

Lamar Odom is now facing six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

For the last month there has been increased speculation that Lamar Odom has abused drugs and the basketball pro is allegedly battling an addiction to crack cocaine.

“That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”
