Lamar Odom

Sued Over Pap Confrontation

Lamar Odom
has just been sued by the photog whose equipment the NBA star trashed on the street back in July ... and the pap is partly blaming Kanye West for Lamar's outburst, TMZ has learned.

Stefan Saad filed the lawsuit, claiming the NBA star assaulted him and destroyed more than $15,000 worth of camera equipment during the attack in the middle of a Hollywood street ...all in an effort to avoid negative press.

The lawsuit trashes the Kardashians and Lamar with gems like this -- "The Kardashian clan has apparently come to believe that it is above the law, and has some exceptional privilege to disregard the rights of others."

The lawsuit goes on "The Kardashian clan are not only wealthy and attractive -- but also deeply flawed."

As we reported, Lamar blew a gasket after the pap peppered him with questions about cheating on Khloe, opening Saad's car and tossing all his gear onto the pavement, including expensive camera equipment.

Lamar then took a bundle of the photog's crap, placing it in his own car. The entire incident was caught on tape.

According to Stefan's lawsuit, Lamar feels like he's "above the law" because he's married to a Kardashian sister. Stefan even believes Kanye West had a hand in all this, claiming the rapper (who's dating Kim) advised him on how to deal with paparazzi in a Kanye fashion.

Stefan is suing for assault, conversion (stealing property), and trespass of property, demanding in excess of $565,000 ... not including punitive damages.

good to see 565k will go in a working mans pocket and not another kardashians pocket. the only reason khloe wont file divorce as she knows lamar run from her and marriage over is because her own net worth of 11 million isnt enough..she want a crack baby from lamar to secure 18 years of his income cus she cant divorce a guy never with her cus she so dam poor and broke and been dying al year to have lamars crack baby for that child support..

Damn TMZ your paps are just too dumb. How are you gonna be up in someones business and not expect something to happen? Then to try and add Kanye to the mix thats just being dumb and money hungry. No wonder nobody likes paps their just as sleazy and scandolous.

Hey, Government of America, stop travelling abroad to save other people, if you are not even going to save your own. Half your damn country is addicted to chemical drugs, from every age group.

I do believe they saw west behave in this manner with paps and decided to do same. in that week west was going off on paps, then lamar and finally bruce screaming at the paps telling them to leave he and his family alone, then giving them giving them the finger. it is funny because paps made them famous, after sex tape. without the paps (and RJ sex tape) no one would care about these people. so thank RJ and paps for kards. ahousehold name

Great way to make a quick buck - get in rich celebrity's face asking personal questions with a camera to their face recording everything and if they react, sue them for a lot of $.
