Lamar Odom Fired

A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com what REALLY happened with Lamar Odom and the Dallas Mavericks. Plus, Khloe and Kris Jenner are supposedly thrilled about the news — find out why!

Lamar Odom‘s ego has certainly taken a beating this last year. First he was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers and now he’s being dropped from the Dallas Mavericks after a horrible season.

“Lamar did not quit the Dallas Mavericks, he got cut,” a friend of the family told Hollywoodlife.com exclusively. “Khloe had absolutely no idea that this was going to happen. She is really pissed off at Mark Cuban, she thinks he could have done something.”

Interestingly enough his wife, Khloe Kardashian, 27, isn’t as upset as you might think she’d be about her hubby losing his job.

“Even though Khloe feels bad for Lamar, she wasn’t very fond of Dallas,” our source says. “She absolutely would never want to start a family there, so far away from her family — no way.”

Adds the insider, “Kris (Jenner) isn’t upset. She’s thrilled that Khloe is moving back.”

What do you think about today’s shocking news? Will Lamar play ball again?
