Kris Jenner offered Lamar Odom $20 million to “scrap his upcoming memoir” is the premise behind another untrue tabloid report. Gossip Cop, however, can set the record straight about this claim. We’re told it’s not true.
In an article titled, “Kris’ $20 Mil Book Bribe For Lamar,” Star maintains that while the pen is mightier than the sword, “Jenner’s checkbook just might trump them both.” The tabloid alleges the Kardashian family matriarch is ready to pay Odom eight figures to not write his proposed autobiography. A so-called “family insider” is quoted as saying, “Lamar could blab about everything from Rob Kardashian’s drug use, to Kim cheating on Reggie Bush with Kanye West, to Khloe’s plastic surgery secrets and even potentially incriminating details about how Kris conducts business.”
The magazine claims a $20 million check from Jenner is a “small price to pay to keep their dynasty from being destroyed,” and that the “Machiavellian momager,” as the publication dubs her, is banking that “Lamar wants cash more than he wants revenge.” The misinformed or seemingly made-up source adds, “He knows a tell-all could ruin the Kardashians, but from Lamar’s point of view, they’ve got it coming.”
And why have they “got it coming” after the family rallied around Odom and nursed him back to health after he overdosed on drugs in Nevada back in October 2015? That, however, is among the less inaccurate parts of the tabloid’s article. Gossip Cop fact-checked the magazine’s claim, and Jenner is not offering Odom $20 million not to write a book about his life story. Odom’s own lawyer, who would be privy to any such deal, tells Gossip Cop he’s never heard of such a (phony) offer.
Of course, Star is the same publication that ran an absurd cover story two years ago that falsely asserted that Jenner had sex with Lamar Odom in a hotel room. Of course, there’s no mention of that fabrication in the current article. It’s also the same outlet that Gossip Cop busted in 2014 when it wrongly maintained his reality star ex-wife was pregnant with his baby, and more recently reported Khloe Kardashian was betrayed by Odom, who reunited with Liza Morales, the baby mama of his kids. Not one of those claims were remotely true.
While Odom has said he’s writing “an autobiography about my life,” he is not writing a tell-all about the Kardashians. They’ll naturally be discussed in the book, since he was part of the family for many years, but he’s not sharpening his knives for “revenge.” Perhaps it would have been better if the tabloid had scrapped its article before publishing it.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
