Poor Lamar Odom. He and his wife Khloé Kardashian were in New York on Thursday to attend the funeral of his cousin, who was murdered last week. Odom hired a car service to chauffeur him around New York. While Odom was in the car his driver was involved in a collision with a motorcycle. The impact of the collision propelled the motorcycle rider into a 15-year-old pedestrian who died from his injuries the following day.
The Odoms were scheduled to be in the wedding of Odom's former teammate Shannon Brown who married R&B singer Monica last weekend. But news of his cousin's death caused Lamar and Khloé to miss the wedding.
