When Lamar Met Khloe ... And It Cost Him $3,000

9/24/2009 1:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" ... and the way to a Kardashian's heart is apparently through her liver.

Lamar Odom and Khole Kardashian

TMZ has learned exactly how the love story between Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom began -- and it all started with a bar tab around $3,000.

It all went down on August 27th, when Khloe was hosting a "Welcome to LA" party for brand new Laker, Ron Artest, at Halo in Hollywood.

Khloe ran up one hell of a bill that night ... and for some reason, Lamar decided to cover the whole thing -- after all, cash money is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

A source extremely close to Khloe confirmed the whole story, telling us, "At first, she wasn't going to do the event ... but she literally met her husband there. And yes, he paid for everything."

And there's no question -- Lamar definitely got what he paid for. For the record, K and L will be tying the knot exactly one month after they hit it off!

as a black woman myself, i am not upset in the least bit that lamar is marrying khloe, take that ugly gravy train (lamar) off the market please! i am so tired of hearing other black women complain about black men marrying women that aren't black. who cares? why would i want someone that doesn't want me anyway? i'm not holding my breath for a black man, if i did, my lips would be blue! men are men, as long he treats you right, what does his skin color matter? be with someone who appreciates you for who you are and not criticizing you with stupid stereotypes such as black women having attitudes and not having long hair, etc.(which is really a cover-up for self hate).
and as i mentioned before, i'm not down with the racist comments and i doubt it has anything to do with race, why he would want to marry her, i haven't the faintest clue. i am certainly not buying the whole "covering up for kourtney" plot, it has too many holes in it. #1, the biggest and largest hole being: who the hell is kourtney that an nba player would pretend to marry her sister to cover up for her own wedding?! and why? b/c she's pregnant? the baby's already a bastard b/c it is out of wedlock and getting married "secretly" before it comes out doesn't change a thing (if that is the reason). besides, i wouldn't be in such a hurry to marry an "athlete" anyway a lot of them cheat and have baby mamas (not mama), and who wants to have "odom" as a last name anyway?

To hell with her    

So, this wookie sized pampered poodle ran up a bar tab of $3,000, he picked up her tequila shots cost and that's how she met him & "fell in love"? It must be nice to base your relationship on gold-digging. Ah, true romance...

I give their publicity stunt joke of a marriage 1 month.

The 3k bar tab doesn't mean she ate or drank a ton. She wasn't drinking budweiser and eating chips! Premium liquor and food is expensive. Not hard to run up a big tab.
