“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star Khloe Kardashian has employed bodyguards following a scary encounter with her ex-husband Lamar Odom. The reality show’s production staff decided to hire extra security to keep Khloe, 31, safe, reported Radar online.
“Nobody was going to take any chances with Khloe’s safety, so the decision was made to hire bodyguards. Of course, the whole drama is going to be a storyline for the upcoming season,” a production source said. “Khloe didn’t want to pay for a bodyguard out of her own pocket when she wasn’t filming, but she hasn’t been alone since the incident with Lamar,” the source added.
“Khloe feels very secure at her mansion because she lives in a gated community, and her mansion is also behind gates. She has cameras all over the property as well. Her brother Rob Kardashian and boyfriend James Harden are constantly around.”
Khloe was ambushed by Lamar on her way to SoulCycle workout on August 12. At that time, she looked surprised when her ex-husband came out of nowhere and demanded her to speak with him. As Khloe kept walking away from him, Lamar touched her arm and she screamed at him, “Get off of me, get off of me. Stop. Stop.” She then bolted to her car and drove away.
In an interview, Lamar denied ambushing Khloe, admitting he’s still in love with her. “I did not ambush Khloe. I am not a threat to her,” the athlete said.
