BEVERLY HILLS - Lamar Odom the former Los Angeles Laker player, who now plays for the Los Angeles Clippers, has just said that he is sick and tired of playing second fiddle to his wife Khloe Kardashian's X-Factor gig.
The 6-foot-10-inch Odom was having lunch at an IHIPHOP Soul Food Restaurant in Beverly Hills when he made it abundantly clear to Rufus Reno with Sports Balls Illustrated Daily Magazine that he will no longer be content to settle for one of the two back burners on his wife's stove top fast lane.
He went on to say that he isn't no Kanye West who doesn't give a rat's belly button about being his girlfriend Kim Kardashian's shadow puppet.
The 33-year-old basketball player, who starred with his wife in the cable show Khloe & Lamar, says that he wants Khloe to give up her co-host's job on Simon Cowell's X-Factor at the end of the current season.
Lamar stressed that Khloe will either be a housewife and tend to her wifely duties like millions of American woman happily do or else he will pack his belongings including all of his countless basketballs and, as they say in the southside of Chicago, he'll hit the road Jack.
Khloe, who is 28, was reached by Reno and asked to comment on the situation.
She reportedly made a very sarcastic remark and said that Lamar is just playing his spoiled little brat game of threatening to divorce her.
Khloe grinned and remarked that Lamar will be just fine after she treats him to a weekend filled with lots of mattress frolicking down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
