‘Round these parts, we try our darndest to remain objective and keep our two cents to ourselves and even with this post, we’re trying to do so.
If you’re an entertainment junkie, chances are, you’re familiar with the story that’s been circulating about Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. The most interesting part, at least in our minds, is the fact that the NBA baller has been (allegedly) privately fighting a drug addiction. Even more interesting to us, is the fact that some folk suggest Kris Jenner (who is arguably the marketing genius behind the ‘Kardashian BRAND’) may have had something to do with leaking information to the press, about Odom’s alleged addiction.
Internally, we always argue about publicists, managers and handlers ‘planting’ media (*raises hands*) stories. As someone who works in this field, we constantly receive emails, calls, tips, etc., about ‘stories’ that may interest us. And some, not all seem to think that Kris may be behind planting the ‘Lamar Odom Smoked Crack’ story.
Here’s what we know thus far:
–According to TMZ, on Monday, Odom was not missing, but at a Los Angeles hotel. His agent (Jeff Schwartz) reported that his wife (Khloe) knew of Odom’s whereabouts.
–Radar Online reports that although Khloe allegedly filed for separation Monday, the couple may be reconciling. The couple was spotted at their multi-million dollar mansion. Specifically, was spotted late on Monday afternoon driving into the gated community where he and Khloe live, where they remained Tuesday.
–The Kardashian clan hasn’t released a public statement or made any twitter comments besides, Khloe’s not so pleasant tweet:
–Lamar’s ex girlfriend and the mother of his three children, Liza Morales, has remained silent.
If in fact, Kris did plant this story, what would be her motivation? And do you believe that Kris would go so far as to plant a negative story about her son-in-law?
