If all is said and done between Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom, why was the onetime Miami Heat player showing up at Khloe’s gym unannounced on Wednesday? The former basketball player, 35, was photographed approaching Kardashian, 31, as she entered a SoulCycle studio in Beverly Hills. Onlookers told TMZ he was screaming at her, but he insisted to the gossip site he didn't harass her and didn’t mean to scare her.
KK told Complex magazine’s latest issue: “I talk to Lamar as often as I can, which is inconsistent, but not on my terms” and that she misses him “every day.”
Perhaps he has other reasons for wanting to chat: RadarOnline reports Odom is currently being offered millions to to do a sit-down blab about his life with the famous family. He could probably use the cash. According to Life & Style, his ex-wife made out like a bandit, with a divorce settlement valued at $12 million.
FILM ON ABUSE
Never miss a local story.
TLC network has set date for its new documentary to raise awareness about child sexual abuse. Breaking the Silence will air at 10 p.m. Aug. 30. To be broadcast commercial-free, the documentary aims to shine a light on the challenges faced by those affected by child sexual abuse, as well as raise awareness of where people can turn for help. The film was first announced last month when TLC pulled the plug on its hit series 19 Kids and Counting after reports surfaced that one of its stars, Josh Duggar, the oldest of the family’s 19 children, had fondled four of his sisters and a babysitter a dozen years before, when he was a teen.
Britain’s Prince Harry has been on a private visit to South Africa’s flagship wildlife park, where poachers have killed rhinos in record numbers and clashed with rangers. South Africa’s national parks service provided Harry with “exposure” to its conservation work, including efforts against rhino poaching, during his visit to Kruger National Park, the service said in a statement emailed Thursday to The Associated Press. The parks service said media reports that Harry was involved in the arrest of eight suspected poachers on Aug. 5 were false. They were detained in two separate operations at the Kruger park, one of which involved a firefight in which one suspect was wounded.
