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.

Him doing crack wasn't rock bottom. Getting denied entrance to a club in a city where you won 2 rings is ROCK BOTTOM.

Kardashians are trash. All of them. E! Just keeps milking their money cows. Lamar move on you can find a slut anywhere. Just show them the same thing you showed the kartrashian , money and a big penis,

There is Kim's big ole butt again, out with out Ignori. That poor baby is raised by strangers, Ignori was just another marketing strategy. Poor Baby. Kanye should take that kid and run as far away as he can.

Regardless of TMZ and their humble legal opinion......DISCRIMINATION based on SPECULATION is still DISCRIMINATION..................Lamar Odom is not Chris Brown......Are they being profiled together because they are both BLACK celebrities?

I feel it was a set up by the Kardashians, why can't they just leave Lamar alone.. I think he handled it really good.I like Lamar and yes he has done awful things but she needs to grow up!
