TMZ has published a lot of really scandalous reports about Lamar Odom's life. From his seemingly volatile relationship with Khloe Kardashian to his alleged drug problem, the site has left no stone unturned when it has come to covering Odom. It continued yesterday when they posted a story about the former NBA star reportedly ambushing Kardashian in Los Angeles while she was headed to the gym. And after the story went up, Odom was NOT happy.
TMZ Sports caught up with Odom to get his reaction to their latest post, and he decided that he had had enough of TMZ. So he responded to questions about Kardashian by going OFF on a TMZ cameraman and proceeded to rip TMZ apart for the way that they conduct their business. He even went as far as to suggest that TMZ covers celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt differently than they cover rappers, athletes, and black celebrities.
You can read his entire response to the TMZ cameraman here:
I don't believe in what y'all do. I don't believe in following people around. I don't Twitter. I don't Instagram. It just came with it. Me and that girl fell in love, you feel what I'm saying? That's our business. If we want to give you it, if we want to let you in our house, we can let you in. And fuck it, we can kick you out at the same time. Do not disrespect my space. Do not disrespect my character, because that's what y'all been doing. And from day one, even if half the things were true, people know who I am and y'all have discredited me, beat me down, took my confidence, took everything away from me. You will not do it again. I know what your company is about. I know what they doing to brothers. I know what y'all doing to the rappers. I know you want 'em beefing. I know you want 'em arguing. Y'all don't do Leo like that. Y'all don't do Brad like that. Y'all don't do them like that.
We can't imagine what it must be like to be Odom and have every single aspect of your life poked and prodded. When you think about it, it's kind of amazing he made it this far without blowing up like this.
TMZ Sports also published the clip below, which features Odom responding a little more directly to the latest Khloe rumor. In it, he also touches on the fact that he probably couldn't get a job at Home Depot right now because of all the stories that TMZ has published about him over the course of the last few years.
It's hard not to feel bad for Odom after watching these.
