Khloe Kardashian - Lamar Odom Sued Over Paparazzo Clash

Khloe Kardashian's basketball player husband Lamar Odom has been slapped with a lawsuit over his highly-publicised clash with a paparazzo in July (13).

The embattled sportsman hit headlines earlier this summer (13) when he became engaged in a confrontation with snapper Stefan Saad in Los Angeles after he was quizzed about rumours his marriage to the reality Tv star was on the rocks.

Video footage of the incident featured Odom rifling through the back seat of the photographer's car, taking out his camera and other equipment and throwing it on the ground. He was also filmed waving a tripod at another paparazzo.

The run-in sparked a police investigation, but the case was settled without charge after Odom agreed to pay for the broken equipment last month (Aug13).

However, Saad is refusing to let the incident go and has now taken civil action against Odom, accusing him of destroying $15,000 (£10,000)-worth of goods. He is suing for assault, conversion and trespass of property and is demanding more than $565,000 (£376,670), on top of punitive damages, reports Tmz.com.

The lawsuit is the latest drama in Odom's life - he was recently arrested for driving under the influence (Dui) and earlier this month (Sep13), he left a rehabilitation centre a day after checking in to seek treatment for a reported drug problem.
