Former Kardashian husband Lamar Odom may be involved in a kidnapping plot involving guns and gambling. Or, if you ask Lamar’s manager, it involves Lamar Odom and absolutely no one, because there was no gambling debt-gone-wrong kidnapping plot. Nothing to see here, folks – just Lamar living his life, and we all know there’s no cause for alarm there. Oh, wait.
Radar Online posted a story, which sounds like it was pulled from a Sopranos spec script that was recently found under a couch by an HBO janitor. According to a source, this all took place back in June when Lamar flew to Portland, Oregon to visit his then-girlfriend Savanna Waldrop’s family (Lamar met Savanna at the Moonlite BunnyRanch in Nevada). Savanna reportedly didn’t want him to join her in Portland, but Lamar did anyway.
Once there, Lamar wanted to do some gambling, but didn’t have any money. He allegedly borrowed $10,000 from some “shady locals.” Savannah set up the loan, and within 20 minutes, Lamar had blown every dollar. The shady locals wanted their money back asap, and they reportedly followed Lamar, Savannah, and her 2-year-old daughter to the Airbnb they were staying at, broke down the door with guns drawn, demanded Lamar to pay up and threatened to kill the girls.
Lamar clearly didn’t have any money, so the shady locals kidnapped him and took him back to their place, where they held him for 48-hours. During that time, they reportedly took him to a nightclub. Eventually Lamar was able to come up with $4,300 ($1000 from pawning a gold chain, $500 from Savannah, and $2800 from Lamar’s team). The kidnappers let him go, but they expect the remaining $5,000 plus interest. Good luck with that: Lamar flew back to China, where he’s playing basketball. Savannah has reportedly loaned Lamar $80,000 during the time they dated, so she probably isn’t going to see that $500 either.
But Lamar’s manager Zoul El Fassi and his publicist Eve Sarkisyan-Nunn say it’s fiction. Zoul tells E! News that Lamar does know Savannah, but that she’s just some girl he used to party with. Eve confirms much of the same to E!, saying that Savannah is merely an acquaintance, and that the story is “false.” Lamar is also calling BS on Radar’s kidnapping story.
Whether it’s true or not, one thing is for sure: Lamar isn’t exactly selling his attempt at fantasy with that caption. Because Lamar’s life is just that crazy, I could totally see a headline in the future that reads:
Seven Dwarfs threaten to sue Lamar Odom for unpaid loan after rabbit hole rescue. “Unless he wants to get put back in the hospital from apple poisoning, he better hi-ho, hi-hope he can get the money” says Grumpy.
