*A woman has come forward claiming to have had an affair with Lamar Odom, just as his mother-in-law Kris Jenner is busy denying reports that he and her daughter Khloe Kardashian are headed for divorce.
For months, rumors have been swirling that the NBA player has been cheating on his wife of nearly four years.
Last month, Los Angeles entrepreneur Jennifer Richardson told In Touch that she had a year-long relationship with the athlete, and claims Khloe knew about it and made efforts to intimidate her into ending the affair.
This week, sources close to the couple told The Huffington Post that Polina Polonsky, a California lawyer, claims she had a six-week affair with Odom that started on June 2, the night of Kim Kardashian’s baby shower. That also happens to be the last time Khloe and Lamar were photographed together.
Polonsky says she was under the impression that Odom’s marriage to Kardashian was over by the time she became involved with him, when they hooked up at the Roosevelt Hotel, where he was staying around June 9.
“After we had sex, Lamar stayed the night with me; the next day we went back to the Roosevelt,” she told the website. “I stayed there with him for the next couple of nights.”
According to RadarOnline, Polonsky passed a lie detector test regarding her affair allegations.
As for Jennifer Richardson, she tells In Touch that Khloe took measures to track her every movement.
“They had private investigators following me for weeks. I was very, very intimidated and scared,” she told In Touch, adding that she believed Khloe had Odom followed as well.
“She’s constantly looking for Lamar and trying to find out where he is, calling him, calling his assistant. Lamar would just hit ‘ignore,’” Richardson explained to the magazine.
Like Richardson, Polonsky also claims that Kardashian knew full well of the affair and had a tense run-in with her, when the reality star allegedly showed up at the Vagabond Inn where she and Odom were staying: “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 alleged to RadarOnline. “While Khloe was screaming outside the door, Lamar was calling people to come and get her. She was out of control.”
Khloe has remained uncharacteristically silent throughout the allegations. Even on Twitter.
Odom, however, tweeted this following on July 12: “Before her there never was and without her will never be. Wifey is real.”
Khloe’s mom Kris Jenner told TMZ Thursday, “Khloe and Lamar are absolutely not getting divorced. There’s been no talk of divorce.”
