Lamar Odom endured one of the most humiliating club denials ever ... he was turned away from a West Hollywood club Tuesday night as his estranged wife and her new boyfriend partied inside.
It all went down at Penthouse. Our photog spotted Lamar rolling up to the club with a few friends. But when Lamar got to the door, he hit 2 big snags -- Khloe and French Montana.
Lamar and his friends stood there for a few minutes and left in defeat. Watch Lamar recoil in controlled anger when someone mentions French Montana.
French Montana was the special guest last night ... French even posted a photo to his Instagram page of him with Kim Kardashian with the caption "Shout out to my BFF @kimkardashian for coming out tonight party was turnt up."
It's unclear if Khloe or French had anything to do with Lamar getting denied -- but there was a giant clue in the form of an E! camera crew ... that just happened to be outside to shoot Lamar getting turned away.
Remember, the guy's under contract to appear on the family reality show -- and since he and Khloe are NOT divorced ... all signs point to Lamar being in on this.
His night didn't end up entirely bad ... he had better luck at Lure, a few miles down the road.
The Kardashians have a Benedict Arnold on their TV show ... a thief ... a jewelry thief ... at least that's what law enforcement sources believe.
TMZ broke the stories ... $250,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's former Tarzana home, and $50,000 cash was pilfered from Kourtney's Calabasas mansion.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... whoever stole Khloe and Lamar's jewelry knew exactly what they were looking for. The thief or thieves took only the very expensive items, leaving the rest behind. They knew exactly where to look and what to take.
What makes it look like even more of an inside job ... there was NO sign of forced entry at either home.
Our law enforcement sources believe someone from the crew of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is the culprit.
We're told crew members are being questioned, but so far no one has copped to the crimes.
Khloe Kardashian's a regular private dick ... when it comes to tracking down the punks who stole $250k worth of jewelry from her house -- but Lamar Odom can relax.
His alibi's pretty solid. For now.
Call it CSI: Tarzana ... Khloe Kardashian is demanding lie detector tests for EVERYONE who had access to the jewelry stolen from her home ... and she want fingerprints too.
We're told Khloe suspects the jewelry thief or thieves who pilfered $250K worth of items is someone with direct access ... house staff, assistants, filming crews, inspectors and movers.
As we reported ... the thief or thieves made off with watches, diamonds and gold chains that were left in the house, which was recently sold.
It's likely an inside job because there's no sign of a break-in and the house sits inside a gated estate and the house itself is also gated.
Sources say Khloe does NOT suspect Lamar since he's been in Spain playing basketball.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are united again ... as victims of a quarter-of-a-million dollar jewelry heist.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone pilfered watches and gold chains inside the former couple's Tarzana home ... which has sat empty for more than a month.
Cops tell us they think it's an inside job because there are no signs of forced entry.
As you know ... Khloe filed for divorce and has moved on. The house was sold to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco.
The jewelry theft was discovered Monday night ... when Khloe and Kris were there cleaning out the house for the new owner.
As for who did it ... cops are investigating. The house has undergone work over the last month so detectives are focusing on some of the tradesmen.
Khloe Kardashian's divorce isn't all bad -- TMZ has learned, she and Lamar Odom just dumped their massive marital mansion for a HUGE profit ... and now it's a "Big Bang Theory" star's problem.
As we first reported, Khloe and Lamar listed the 7-bedroom 8,000 sq. ft. Tarzana home last year for $4 million ... shortly before Khloe filed for divorce. They bought the house for $3.95 million in 2009.
Now, sources tell us, the home has sold for $5.49 million ... nearly $1.5 million more than the asking price. We're told Khloe's now looking for a new place near her mom in Hidden Hills.
According to sources, the house was purchased by "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco and her new husband ... who obviously don't believe in curses.
Lamar Odom is as done with his marriage as Khloe Kardashian and wants to get married again STAT -- to his basketball career ... sources connected to Lamar tell TMZ.
Now get this ... Lamar blames the infidelity on his friends who are "supporting me the wrong way by bringing girls around."
Lamar also casts blame on Khloe ... telling his friends, "I can't be f**kin' with Khloe. She brings out the bad side of me."
Lamar says he needs to "get married" to his basketball career and wants to ignore the past.
And that's the world according to Lamar Odom.
Khloe Kardashian has just filed court documents to divorce Lamar Odom and restore her name -- TMZ has learned.
As we first told you, Khloe planned to pull the trigger today on her 4-year marriage to Lamar, who has been deep in the world of drugs on and off for the last 2 years.
In the legal docs, filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser, Khloe cites "irreconcilable differences."
As we previously reported, the couple has a prenup so division of property will be a cinch -- they kept all their property separate.
And Khloe is asking the judge to take Odom out of her name, so she is once again simply Khloe Kardashian ... eliminating Odom from her life in every way.
And, Khloe is NOT asking for spousal support and wants the judge to reject any bid by Lamar for the same.
Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom ... TODAY ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her legal docs. The split should be pretty cut and dry -- an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate ... and no kids.
As we reported, Lamar's bizarre freestyle rap video -- in which he brags about cheating on Khloe -- was the last straw in their crumbling relationship. Immediately after TMZ posted the video last month, Khloe stopped wearing her wedding ring.
The end was a long time coming ... Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar's crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he'd OD or worse.
Lamar and Khloe tied the knot in September 2009.
Our Kardashian/Jenner sources say ... Bruce has already accepted. We're told Bruce is surprised anyone would even question whether he's going. He's telling friends, "Of course I'm going. It's my family."
The jury's out on Lamar -- he hasn't said yay or nay.
As for why the doors are wide open ... the Kardashians say Bruce and Lamar are family and "always will be."
By the way ... guess who won't be there -- Kim, Kanye and North West. He's in Miami on tour, and they're along for the ride.
Lamar Odom admits he fell off the wagon last week ... but he insists he was s**faced drunk, and not cracked out.
Lamar told friends he's seen the video (above) we posted on TMZ, showing him slurring his words in an L.A. bathroom as he rapped with his fellow shirtless friend Jamie Sangouthai.
Lamar says it was a one time deal and NO drugs were involved -- he was specific about 2 drugs he's had problems with -- crack and coke.
So we gotta ask ...
Lamar Odom's drug problem is only getting worse -- at least that's how it looks in this video, shot this month and obtained by TMZ, showing Lamar incoherently rapping without his shirt on ... talking about drugs, making money without the NBA, and cheating on Khloe Kardashian.
Lamar appears out of it, rapping about making money off his fragrance "Unbreakable," and how he smokes drugs to make "the pain go away." He even drops Kanye's name.
But the crazy part -- Lamar raps, "And when Khloe's out of town / I still be on the DL." His friend then follows up, "You know what it is / We the QU [Queens] pimps / Ask any of these shorties / We ran through their cribs."
Translation: when Khloe's away, Lamar will play.
As we reported, Lamar's currently training hard in Rhode Island, trying to get his ass back in shape for the NBA -- but drugs are still obviously a big part of his life.
Lamar Odom just confirmed to TMZ ... discussions are underway for a return to the team he loved -- the L.A. Clippers.
We got Lamar at LAX about an hour ago ... and he made it clear something is going on between him and the team.
Coach Doc Rivers said he met with Lamar Friday to have a chit chat and there is a buzz that serious negotiations are underway.
Lamar certainly wants back because we know he's been seriously training for the last month ... and as far as we know he's drug free.
Lamar Odom has a savior ... and it turns out it's the other guy in the Kardashian house who left the Klan ... Bruce Jenner.
Sources connected to both Bruce and Lamar tell TMZ ... Lamar has been spending a lot of time with Bruce at his new home in Malibu. They spend hours together during which Bruce counsels Lamar on various life issues, including how to stay clean and whose company he should and shouldn't be keeping.
Bruce is telling confidantes Lamar is CLEAN -- free of drugs and alcohol.
We're told Bruce feels he's a positive influence on Lamar and can make a huge difference in his life. Bruce has told friends he loves Lamar and thinks he's a "good soul."
As Bruce told one friend, "Everybody's got s**t in their life and they need to learn how to deal with it. Lamar didn't deal with his very well."
Bruce is also telling friends ... Lamar is working out constantly and has not given up on his dream to return to the NBA.
And Bruce is saying ... it doesn't matter that Khloe is pulling the plug on her marriage ... he will stay close to Lamar because he genuinely cares for him.
Lamar Odom is living the life of a vagabond ... never staying in one place too long. Latest stop -- a friend's home.
Lamar dropped off a fully-packed suitcase at a pal's house in L.A. on Wednesday -- which also happened to be his 34th birthday.
TMZ broke the story ... Lamar and Khloe Kardashian are secretly selling their Tarzana mansion -- although Lamar hasn't lived there for months -- and Khloe plans to divorce Lamar once she thinks his life is stable enough to handle it.
Lamar took a momentary break from his baggage handling to flex his reduced muscles.
Everybody's got baggage.
