Police just rushed to the L.A. home of Khloe Kardashian, believing that her husband, Lamar Odom, had been shot. Luckily, TMZ reports that Khloe’s NBA star hubby is totally fine. But seriously: What kind of person pulls a prank like this?
On May 10, police raced to Khloe’s home — guns drawn — after receiving reports that Lamar and a friend had been arguing inside his home, and that the friend had pulled out a gun and shot Lamar.
As soon as police arrived, it quickly became clear that this was just another swatting prank. Lamar was unharmed. TMZ’s sources believe that the group responsible for the incident is the same one that has targeted plenty of celebs in recent months, including Rihanna, Chris Brown, Diddy, and Clint Eastwood.
Back in January, Khloe’s parents’ home was also swatted, and the same group appears to be to blame. In that incident, the police reportedly brought “several helicopters and cops on the ground with machine guns and other weapons.”
No machine guns this time, but the police did bring firearms. We’re relieved to hear that no one was hurt, in both cases. Still, this group does seem very intent on targeting the Kardashians. Hopefully this is the last time something like this happens!
