Associates of Lamar Odom were mentioned as possible suspects in a burglary that was reported earlier this month at Khloe Kardashian’s mansion. But now, in a strange turn of events, the burglary has been linked to O. J. Simpson.
Norman Pardo, Simpson’s manager, tells Radar Online he believes the thieves were looking for golf clubs that once belonged to his client and were last known to be in Khloe’s father’s possession. Since the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson, O.J.’s ex-wife, in 1994, it has been rumored that some sort of evidence is hidden in the bags that carry the golf clubs. Their whereabouts have been unknown for years. The late Robert Kardashian Sr. was Simpson's friend and lawyer.
Pardo said, “It’s not the knife or anything like that, but there’s a lot of stuff in the golf clubs that’s not supposed to be in there. It wasn’t bloody gloves or bloody clothes. There were other things. Rumor has it that the golf clubs were hollowed out and there was something inside them. I’ve been told by people very close to O.J. that what’s in that bag is worth more than most people’s homes.”
While it is unclear if the golf clubs were found, jewelry worth approximately $250,000 was stolen from Khloe’s mansion on March 4, TMZ reported. Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, discovered the home had been robbed when they emptied it to prepare it for its new owner. After filing for divorce from Odom in December, Kardashian, 29, sold the home to actress Kaley Cuoco.
Originally, reports claimed Odom’s alleged drug dealers could be responsible for the theft.
According to the reports, the former NBA star did not pay for his illegal drugs last year, despite telling his dealers he had plenty of money and would eventually pay them back. Apparently, however, he never did. Soon after, Odom, 34, allegedly received threatening texts from the dealers, claiming they would break into his home to get the money they were owed. Odom is currently in Spain, playing basketball for the Spanish team Baskonia.
Police are still investigating the case, but there was no sign of forced entry. A source told TMZ he believed one of the drug dealers had ties to someone who had access to the home and worked for the Kardashians.
