Lamar Odom’s career record would imply that he doesn’t care about money. As reported by InTouch Weekly, the former NBA star earned around $115 million during his time as a professional baller. Odom’s past relationship with Khloé Kardashian also helped him achieve mainstream celebrity status and entitled him to some Keeping Up With the Kardashians paychecks due to his appearances on the show.
Though Odom has retired from basketball and “KUWTK” is no longer airing, his 826,000 Instagram followers still make him incredibly valuable to advertisers. He recently used his account to promote the show College Hill, for which he was recently cast. In his first post about the series, he thanked his management team, Savvy Girl Consulting, for “always [having his] the back.”
Unfortunately, Odom’s new managers haven’t been able to work for him as much as they would like, according to TMZ. He makes shocking allegations against his former representatives, who he claims robbed him of control.
Lamar Odom claims his old managers are holding his accounts hostage
In January, Bleacher Report shared that Lamar Odom co-founded a management group called Savvy Talent. According to an interview with TMZ Sports, Odom said he started the group to prevent young athletes and other talent from making financial mistakes. Unfortunately, Odom’s decision to switch his own management to Savvy Girl Consulting — which appears to be linked to Savvy Talent — reportedly cost him a lot of money.
Odom’s former management team has refused to give the baller access to their social media accounts, according to a new report from TMZ. The outlet’s source claims that his original team changed the passwords for Odom’s Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook pages, and he never received the new information. If their source is correct, all of Odom’s recent social media activity was simply his previous team pretending to be him.
This situation is undoubtedly frustrating, but it was also incredibly costly. TMZ went on to share that Odom has about 15 active brand deals to promote … but a lack of access to his accounts has prevented him from maintaining his part of the deal, resulting in him earning about $8,000 per missed post lost .
