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.

My friend in Belgium's little sister got hit by another car days after she got her licsence. She went to the hospital with terrible neck pains and a few days later went back to work still with the pain but it was getting better. Her American friends said"WHAT....YOU SHOULD HAVE SUED THEM, JUST SAY YOU HAVE WHIPLASH!!" What for said she, it was an accident. They didn't deliberatey hit me. Why would I sue them? I wish more Americans didn't collect their income from so many law suits that are BS. No wonder insurance premiums are so high. Give people a break. Lamar was provoked and more than likely the equipment wasn't worth the amount he is being sued for. SMH

Can someone explain to me why the kardashians are famous? It's pretty obvious tmz is being paid off by drunk ass Kris Jenner.

He should only pay for his equipment. Baldwin did the same and the photegrapher said forget it. Lamar was
under a lot of stree and problems going on his private
life that is why he snap and lost his temper, he is only
human also he might not have felt well mentally if he
really has addictions. I hope if it is about his addiction
he can get clean and get his life back together with his
wife or without. Wishing him well for the future

That's a bit excessive Mr. Saad. Stop trying to sue so you can pay off your house. Greed
