Lamar Odom wants the world to know that he has no issues with tr*nsgender women, but he isn’t dating one.
After some photos surfaced on social media, it was widely reported that Odom was dating actress Daniielle Alexis. Still, Odom shut those rumors down and set the record straight about his relationship with Alexis.
Here is what he had to say to TMZ Sports.
Lamar tells TMZ … he’s not dating Daniiellè and never was, and he hasn’t seen or spoken to her since July, when she left Los Angeles.
Lamar Odom is not romantically involved with tr*nsgender actress/model Daniiellè Alexis … despite a few social media posts sparking speculation they’re dating.
Sources close to Lamar tell TMZ … the former NBA player is currently single and is not seeing Daniiellè, but they do know each other and are friendly — which is pretty clear from her social media.
We’re told Lamar and Daniiellè met back in June when he was in L.A. for the BET Awards. Our sources say Lamar was shopping when a car pulled up, Daniiellè hopped out and asked for a photo … and afterward, they exchanged numbers.
They kept in touch, and when he recently moved back to L.A. they grabbed lunch together because they were both in town. Daniiellè’s an aspiring actress, and our sources say they typically chat about the industry.
Lamar has no problems with the tr*nsgender community, in general, and obviously has no issue with Daniiellè being a tr*nsgender woman — there’s simply no romantic spark between them.
One has to wonder if Daniielle were posting photos hoping social media would pick them up so she could gout a few more followers and acting opportunities.
You never know people’s motivations these days, but it was good for Odom to clear up the situation.
No harm, no foul.
