Don't mess with Lamar Odom. Khloe Kardashian's husband lashed out at paparazzi in L.A. on Wednesday, July 11 — smashing one photographer's car and camera equipment with a metal bar during an angry confrontation.

His wife clarified the outburst on Twitter. "Wow can't believe a paparazzi snuck into our gated area and violated our private property!!!! This is the same pap that did a hit and run but my brother and I caught him and he has the nerve to taunt us!!! Be ashamed of your self. F— the papz!!!!! You fucking losers!!!!!

"Lamar is thrilled and always loved being a Laker," the source says. "He was really sad when they traded him."
