Lamar Odom and his representatives are speaking out on the tabloid report that claimed he was kidnapped and held hostage over a gambling debt while visiting a girl that he knew in Portland, Oregon, during the summer months of 2018.
Odom’s publicist said to People Magazine in a statement that he and Lamar are more than aware of the false story circulating in the press.
The former basketball player’s publicist says the woman in question makes all kinds of false claims about Lamar in the media for attention. Moreover, Lamar barely knows her and is in the process of getting a restraining order against the woman as soon as he can.
The 38-year-old denied the story, posting a screenshot of the tabloid report on his Instagram. Lamar joked that he fell down a rabbit hole with his kidnappers and that Rapunzel and the 7 Dwarfs helped save him.

Don't leave out the juicy facts😂😂 😂 this bullshit makes me wanna start my own gossip online platform and report stories only about me 👀. What y'all think?
Odom added that he wanted to open up his own gossip online platform that way he could report stories only about himself. Additionally, he announced to his followers that he’s returning to the basketball court, revealing he’ll be playing in China.
Lamar recently spent some time in Asia. Currently, he’s getting ready to host a meet-and-greet with fans in Boca Raton, Florida, over the weekend.
As fans of the basketball player know, he was married to Khloe Kardashian for a few years, before finally calling it off. Around that time, Lamar partied a lot with drugs and alcohol, winding up in the hospital on more than one occasion.
Khloe K. was at his bedside one night when Lamar overdosed, but his behavior ultimately proved to be the death of their relationship. Khloe eventually started dating Tristan Thompson, whom she shares a child with now. Khloe and Tristan welcomed baby True into the world earlier in the year, amid Tristan’s cheating scandal.
