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.

It's time this whole family, whether it's outlaws, inlaws, or trash Jenners, are held to the same laws as anyone else.

It wouldnt surprise me to find out this was just another money making scheme operated by PimpGranny. it goes like this: Hire a "pap" (friendly one of course) to provoke a response (from LamLam or Kon-Gay) - get cops to 'investigate" but not charge w/ crime, then get PAP to SUE the aggressor and have your family friend/lawyer handle the suit and PMK takes a percentage of the "win". The pap earns some money for his/her time and effort and PimpGranny gets a cut for organizing the whole thing.

“has some exceptional privilege to disregard the rights of others”

Is he ****ing kidding??? How about the right to walk down the street without being hammered with personal, private questions by a total stranger? I get he’s a celebrity but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any sort of right to privacy. Jeez, asking a total stranger if he cheated on his wife is just asking to get your ass beat. I hope they throw his dumb ass out of court.

What Jamie Said    

The amount paps make off the back of celebs without any payment to them, why should they pay them when they go crazy on them? I'm a joiner, when a tool breaks I don't charge a client for it!

The paps need to give Kanye, and Odom a break. These dudes aren't smart enough to walk away from these woman they have. Ask him to imagine himself with this family. LMBO

Stefan Saad should learn not to stick a camera in a person's face and ask if they're cheating on their wife!
