Photographer Sues Lamar Odom Over Camera Smashing Incident
Lamar Odom’s woes continue.
Remember the paparazzo altercation Odom got into in July when he flipped out on a photographer and trashed his equipment? Well now that photographer is suing the NBA veteran.
In a suit filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, photographer Stefan Saad, claims that he was assaulted by Odom after asking the reality TV star if he cheated on Khloe Kardashian.
The suit alleges that the 38-year-old hit Saad’s car with a metal rod, grabbed his camera equipment, and smashed the camera in the middle of the street.
According to the suit, Saad also refers to Khloe’s tweets after the incident took place when she patted her husband on the back for handling the incident in a violent manner. The suit further states that the reality TV beauty attempted to “minimize” Odom’s actions by “blaming the victim.”
The lawsuit claims that since the altercation, Saad has been suffering from “the onset of panic disorder.” Saad is suing for assault, conversion and trespass of property, and is asking for over $565,000 in damages.
