Years ago I wrote a post about Khloe Kardashian dating rapper Young Jeezy. Literally minutes after I published that post, an email from Jeezy's publicist landed in my Inbox. She wanted me to know, in no uncertain terms, that Khloe was not dating Jeezy.
Later I found out that Khloe was actively pursuing then-Lakers star Lamar Odom. And she didn't want Lamar to think she was giving up her goodies to every rapper who came along.
Image has always been a top priority to Khloe and her sisters, and Khloe had big plans for Lamar.
Khloe's plans included branding herself like her sister Kim Kardashian, who went from pr0n film obscurity to superstardom. PArt of that branding was her own reality show, featuring her husband, Odom, the big NBA star.
Now sources tell the NY Post's gossip column Page Six that Odom may have lost his job because of the pressure he was under to star in Khloe's reality show.
Sources believe the pressure of also playing in front of reality cameras for “Khloe and Lamar” pushed Odom into a slump.
“When he wasn’t playing well, it meant he looked bad,” said a source. “And when you have a show about your life, when you are off-court, you have to deal with the producers asking all those questions. He had a horrible summer, but . . . he was more concerned about the cameras and how he looked.”
“We thought it was in the best interest of the Dallas Mavericks that we went our separate ways” said team owner Mark Cuban.
Khloe took to her Twitter.com page to defend her husband's dismissal from the Dallas Mavericks.
