The Kardashian reality-TV clan is facing gay rumors yet again, just two months after stepdad Bruce Jenner was said to be a cross-dresser. Now, people are claiming Khloe Kardashian’s estranged and troubled husband Lamar Odom is secretly gay.
Last month, a tape emerged showing the former NBA player rapping with a male friend and slurring his words. In the video, the 33-year-old raps about making money without the NBA, cheating on wife Khloe Kardashian, and even drugs.
It is unclear who leaked the tape and when the video -- in which Odom, 33, talks about smoking drugs to “make the pain go away” -- was shot.
In his rap, Odom admits to cheating on the reality star, saying "And when Khloe's out of town / I still be on the DL." “DL” is slang for “down low” and it generally refers to a subculture of African-American men who publicly identify as heterosexual but have sex with men behind closed doors.
“Khloe is devastated,” a family insider now tells National Enquirer about Odom’s possible confession. “She thought things were getting better, but now she’s being slammed with rumors that Lamar is gay.
She never understood why Lamar lost interest in having sex with her earlier this year, but if he’s living a secret gay life, that could explain it. Last summer, two women said they were Odom's mistresses and had had sexual relationships with the former Los Angeles Clippers forward.
Polina Polonsky, 33, a lawyer in Sherman Oaks, Calif., told Star magazine that she was intimate with Odom for six weeks early last summer. She passed a polygraph test that backed her claims.
Prior to Polonsky coming forward, another woman, Jennifer Richardson, 29, told the magazine she had a tryst with the NBA player in January 2012 after meeting him at a Dallas strip club.
