Lamar Odom’s alleged mistress Jennifer Richardson is continuing to spill details about her tryst with the NBA player, and is now saying that not only did they have sex, but there are more women. The 6-foot-10-inch pro athlete, who now plays for the Los Angeles Clippers, has been married to reality TV starlet Khloe Kardashian since 2009.
Richardson met Odom at a strip club in Dallas in January 2012 when he was playing for the Dallas Mavericks, Star magazine reports, but it's unclear whether or not she's a stripper herself. She tells Star that she often traveled with him to road games and they would sleep together before he returned to Los Angeles and reunited with his wife. He even told her he loved her on a number of occasions, she claims.
“He had sex with me on Christmas Eve, before he flew back to L.A. to spend Christmas with Khloe. It was tough when he had to leave. He was really sad,” said Richardson, 29. “Lamar gave me a kiss and told me he loved me before we parted ways. He told me on many occasions that he loved me. And I honestly felt the same way.”
Richardson says she ended the affair in March, as she did not want to be a secret anymore. In her interview, she apologized for the yearlong affair, and even stated she did not know Odom’s marriage was “real.” “Lamar led me to believe his marriage was just a business arrangement,” Richardson said. She went on to assert that she is not the only woman Odom, 33, has been with during his marriage. “I can tell Khloe that I’m not the only woman; there have been many. I just happened to be around the longest. My advice for Khloe would be to get a divorce. If she thinks he’s going to change, she’s mistaken.”
When they first met, the pair had dinner in a private booth and Odom even rubbed her feet before they headed back to Odom's hotel around 3 a.m., she told the magazine last week. Considering how much information is now leaked online via photos, the NBA player made sure to take apart her phone so there wouldn't be evidence of their interaction, sources added.
Richardson states that the two didn't have sex that time, and at the end of the night, Odom gave her $3,000. But this reportedly wasn't the last time they would meet. At Christmastime later that year, he contacted her and the two had phone sex, according to the report.
In spite of the allegation, Kardashian has stayed by Odom’s side and not spoken publicly about the alleged affairs.
