Dennis Hof, the owner of the brothel where Lamar Odom was found unconscious, wants his money for the ex-basketball star’s stay. But Khloe Kardashian isn’t going to give in so fast and hand over the $75,000, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Here’s why she’s ready to fight it!
Khloe Kardashian, 31, isn’t going down without a fight! The reality star has been all-consumed with Lamar Odom’s health, but now she has another problem to deal with when it comes to her ailing husband — his $75,000 bill from Love Ranch South! Owner Dennis Hof is demanding his money, but HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on why Khloe is holding out before writing a check.
“Khloe believes the owner of the brothel took advantage of Lamar when he was there and overcharged him,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “That’s why the accountant is asking questions. They think he’s the lowest of the low, so why would they take his word on what Lamar owes him? They want credit card slips to see what Lamar actually signed for — they’re not just handing over money. Khloe has no problem fighting this guy.”
Dennis did numerous interviews after members of his staff discovered Lamar unconscious in his room at the brothel on Oct. 13, but he clearly isn’t ready for his 15 minutes of fame to end. “If I don’t get paid for the entire bill, I’ll sue Khloe. I know she has the money,” he told Radar Online. “We have Lamar on tape signing the credit card statement — we have a copy of his driver’s license — he was the one that determined the $75k price for two hookers.”
It has yet to be revealed whether or not Khloe and Dennis have discussed this, but the 31-year-old’s family has already publicly released a statement asking him, politely, to mind his business. “We reached out to Dennis politely asking him to respect Lamar’s (and Khloe’s) privacy during this difficult time and refrain from talking to the press,” the statement read. “This is a very painful situation, as I know you are aware, and the idea that anyone would use it to seek publicity is really sad.”
Dennis has also publicly admitted to telling the Kardashian’s publicist to ‘go to hell’ when she asked him not to talk to the media. Whoa — definitely some drama going on here. We hope that Khloe is still able to focus all her efforts into Lamar’s health at this time, though.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Khloe should fight the bill?
