Lamar Odom has been kidnapped after refusing to pay a gambling, according to a new report, The report – which is from Radar Online – claims that Lamar was kidnapped for two days, while his girlfriend and her daughter were terrorized.
The whole incident popped off this summer in Portland, Oregon, when Lamar was visiting his then-girlfriend, Savanna Waldrop’s family
Here’s how Radar Online is explaining what happened:
Before he arrived Odom told Waldrop he wanted to gamble. The only problem was the former Lakers pro was broke, so he had to borrow a whopping $10,000 from some shady locals.
“Savanna set up the loan and Lamar knew he had to pay it back no matter what,” said the source. “The bookies had no idea someone famous like Lamar didn’t have the cash to pay them back. And you don’t mess with these guys.”
Odom soon found out the dangerous result of his lies.
“Within 20 minutes the $10,000 was gone. He gambled it all — and lost!”.
When Lamar couldn’t pay, they allegedly kidnapped him:
“They kicked in the hotel door and came in with guns when they were all in bed.”
That’s when they took Odom and held him for ransom until he came up with the money.
Lamar finally had to ask friends for the money:
In a desperate attempt to get the needed cash, Odom even had Waldrop pawn his gold necklace for $1,000.
After 48 hours, the frightening turn of events came to an end when Waldrop paid the men $1,500, and the star’s camp forked over $2,800 of the debt. Finally, he was freed.
He’s now free, according to the website.
