Photos of Polina Polonsky have emerged, weeks after the lawyer claims to have had an affair with Khloe Kardashian’s husband, Lamar Odom. Since the incriminating allegations, Kardashian has put on a brave face, remaining silent, but has not made a public appearance with the NBA star.
She even attended her half-sister Kylie Jenner’s Sweet 16 celebrations Aug. 10 without her husband, causing speculation that there indeed is trouble in paradise.

Polonsky, 33, a lawyer in Sherman Oaks, Calif., told Star magazine last week that she was intimate with Odom, also 33, for six weeks earlier this summer. She even passed a polygraph test backing her claims. “I was under the impression that he had left Khloe and that’s why he was living at the Roosevelt,” she said. “He acted completely available and we definitely had mutual attraction.”
On July 13, she claims, she had a acrimonious run-in with Kardashian, who came to the room that Polonsky and Odom were sharing at an inn in Los Angeles.
“I told her to leave, but she refused. I called the front desk and asked them to call the police because I was so scared, but no one ever came,” Polonsky said. “While Khloe was screaming outside the door, Lamar was calling people to come and get her. She was out of control. The whole scene was so frightening — and I couldn’t understand why we were hiding, because he made it clear that he didn’t want to be with her!”
Prior to her, another woman, Jennifer Richardson, 29, told the magazine that she had a tryst with the Los Angeles Clippers forward in January 2012 after meeting him at a strip club in Dallas. At the time, Odom was playing for the Mavericks and Richardson said she often traveled with him to road games, adding that they would sleep together before he returned to Los Angeles and reunited with his wife. Richardson also claims Odom even told her that he loved her on a number of occasions.
The alleged mistress says she ended the affair in March because she didn't want to remain a secret. In her interview, she apologized for the yearlong affair and said she didn't know Odom’s marriage was “real.” After dating for a month, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom married in 2009.
