Lamar Odom

Club Was Afraid He'd Start a Brawl

Chris Brown & Drake Style

EXCLUSIVE

051414_lamar_odom_launch_v4The plot thickens -- the nightclub Lamar Odom got denied from insists the rejection was NOT a reality show set-up ... Lamar was turned away because the club was afraid he'd start a Chris Brown-level brawl with French Montana.

As we reported, Odom was spurned from Penthouse in West Hollywood while his ex Khloe Kardashian and her new man French Montana partied inside.

0514-khloe-kim-lure-tmzAn E! camera crew was conveniently posted up outside the club to capture the rejection -- so obviously there was speculation that Lamar's rejection was a set-up for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" -- but a rep for Penthouse tells TMZ, not so.

The rep says the decision to deny Lamar was the club's decision alone. We're told the nightclub wanted to avoid another bottle-throwing Chris Brown-Drake situation, so bouncers refused to let him in.

Sources close to the Kardashians tell us the same story -- Khloe didn't even know Lamar planned to show up.

You'll recall, Brown and Drake were involved in a massive brawl at W.i.P. nightclub in NYC back in 2012. The brawl resulted in a bunch of lawsuits ... and the club even lost its liquor license for a while. So it's no wonder Penthouse was playing it safe.

That's what Kris Jenner told them to say. This was totally staged. She keeps mens nuts in her closet in plastic containers with pictures of them on the front, so she can see who's nuts are who's.

LOL yeah right. So, did Kris pay you guys just to make another article saying "it isn't so"? To top it off, including the fact that E! was there filming is just advertising that it'll be on the show. Great "preview" TMZ.

How would the Kardashians know that Lamar is going to be at the club? Now, French was advertised to be there.

LOL on Lamar. It would seem to me that he knew Khloe was in there with French and decided to have a confrontation. No doubt "E" was set up outside because Khloe was in there and they probably tape her just about everywhere she goes, and almost everything she does.

I wonder if the club would have denied Khloe and French entry if Lamar was already in there on any other night?
