Lamar Odom sued for assault

Lamar Odom is being sued for allegedly assaulting a photographer in Hollywood.
Stefan Saad has filed a lawsuit against the former Los Angeles Clippers star, who is reportedly addicted to crack cocaine, accusing Lamar of destroying more than $15,000 worth of his equipment during an attack in July.
He claims the 33-year-old star opened his car and threw all of his photography equipment onto the street after Saad asked him questions about his marriage to Khloe Kardashian and rumours he cheated on her.
He also claims that the basketball player took a lot of his stuff and placed it in Lamar's own car.
According to court documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, the paparazzo thinks that Khloe and her family, including her sister Kim's boyfriend Kanye West, are partially responsible for Lamar's reaction.
The lawsuit states: ''The Kardashian clan has apparently come to believe that it is above the law, and has some exceptional privilege to disregard the rights of others.
''The Kardashian clan are not only wealthy and attractive -- but also deeply flawed.''
Saad says the entire incident was caught on tape and he believes Kanye West had a hand in attack, claiming the rapper advised Lamar about how to deal with paparazzi.
The photographer is suing Lamar for assault, conversion (stealing property), and trespassing, demanding in excess of $565,000 in compensation.
