Lamar Odom Files Divorce Docs ... Umm, Exactly What She Said

7/8/2016 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0708-lamar-odom-khloe-kardashian-divorce-answer-TMZ-01Lamar Odom just filed his response to Khloe Kardashian's divorce petition ... and it shows the exes are lockstep when it comes to this breakup.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Lamar lists the exact same date of separation as Khloe did -- December 13, 2013. Ditto for court's ability to award spousal support to the other. As we reported, our sources say they have a prenup.

They even agree each will pay for their own attorneys, a rarity in Hollywood divorces.

Now that Lamar's officially responded ... seems like it's just a matter of time before this is final. Typically, it's about a 6 month wait in Cali before the court signs off.

EXCLUSIVE

The man engaged to LeBron James' mother tells TMZ Sports ... he has a pretty cool relationship with the NBA star ... despite the fact they're only 3 years apart in age. 

We spoke with rapper Lambo -- who's been dating Gloria James for years. Lambo is 34. LeBron is 31. 

So, we asked what it's like to date the mother of such a high profile celebrity -- and Lambo told us why it's "cool."

Lambo also has a habit of publicly calling out high profile people who run with LeBron -- people like Jay Z, Steph Curry and more. So, we asked if Bron has ever stepped in to shut him down. 

Check out the clip ... Lambo calls Gloria his "wife" -- but we're told they're only engaged at the moment and are working on a wedding date. 

So ... mazel tov?!

Nick Young got a visit from his buddy Gilbert Arenas, who was ready to celebrate Nick's new single life -- but also cracked an O.J. Simpson joke about killing Nick's baby mama, Keonna Green.

Ex-NBA star Gilbert took a tour of Nick's crib and recorded the whole thing -- showing a mostly empty house while yelling Iggy Azalea "took it all!" He also painted over Iggy's name on a wall.

But watch the video, it's a lot of laughs ... until Gilbert says, "I heard you got a problem with your baby mom's. You know I'm the new O.J." -- and then flashes what looks like a knife.

Insanity.

Nick Young I'm About That Single Life ... I'm NOT Back With My Ex!

EXCLUSIVE

0707-nick-young-keonna-green-tmz-instagram-01Nick Young's got a cold, hard fact for his baby mama -- Swaggy P's single and completely unattached, even though he knocked her up a second time.

Sources close to the NBA star tell TMZ Sports ... Nick and his ex, Keonna Green, are NOT back together. If you'll recall ... Keonna told US Weekly she wasn't apologizing "for being in love with a man who I have a lot of history with." It appears that's exactly where Nick wants to keep it -- in the history books.

We're told Nick's living it up in the single lane and wants to keep it that way so he can concentrate on the upcoming NBA season. Nick's living alone in the house he used to share with Iggy. Keonna's NOT living there.

As for Iggy'z one-finger salute the other day ... Nick's not trippin.

His response ... they're not ruling anything out. But breathe easy, Lakers fans ... Ingram made it CRYSTAL CLEAR that his 18-year-old son's main focus is his NBA career.

“Playing in a market like this, he will have the opportunities to have outside work in entertainment," Ingram told us, "If Brandon has downtime and it doesn’t affect his game, he will take those opportunities into consideration."

Donald says Brandon is more likely to start off small ... possibly doing, "a couple commercials here and there."

"The fame and everything else will come with time. Right now, it’s all about putting in work."

0705-kevin-durant-mick-cornett-TMZ-GETTY-01The Mayor of Oklahoma City is concerned for Kevin Durant -- telling TMZ Sports he thinks KD got "bad advice" about leaving town ... adding, "I suspect it won't work out."

We spoke with Mayor Mick Cornett -- a huge sports fan who also used to be a sports anchor -- who tells us he loves KD as a person, but believes the move to Golden State is a mistake. 

"Nothing in this is Kevin’s fault," Cornett says. 

"My only observation is ... I think he may have gotten bad advice and I suspect it won’t work out."

"Now, I could be wrong but that’s what it feels like to me. I think he got bad advice.”

That being said, Cornett hailed Durant as a "model citizen" during his time in OKC -- "He gave generously of his time to our non-profit, and also gave generously to funding some disaster relief and some other things. You cannot look at anything he did here and say it was anything but positive."

So, will OKC ever get over the Durant heartbreak? 

"Time will cure this."
