Former couple Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have been pictured in an early morning confrontation, with Lamar reportedly 'blindsiding' Khloe on her way to the gym

There are plenty of things we like to avoid first thing in the morning – and a run-in with our ex is definitely one of them.

But that’s exactly what happened to Khloe Kardashian, who was reportedly left ‘shaken’ after she was unexpectedly confronted by her soon-to-be-ex-husband Lamar Odom.

Khloe was reportedly on her way to the gym at 6.45am on Wednesday morning (talk about an early riser!) when she was approached by sports star Lamar, who allegedly launched a verbal attack on the brunette beauty.

When Khloe tried to make a quick getaway (as you would when confronted by your ex at that time in the morning), Lamar is alleged to have demanded that Khloe talk to him, reportedly reaching out to touch her arm when she tried to walk away.

At that point, Khloe allegedly shouted: ‘Get off of me, get off of me. Stop. Stop.’

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star then apparently asked Lamar how he knew where she was, before making a sharp getaway in her car.

Whilst Khloe was reportedly left ‘shaken’ after the incident – which, sources claim, totally ‘blindsided’ her – Lamar has hit back at claims he ambushed her, suggesting that the meeting was pre-arranged and proclaiming: ‘The dog has to fight back.’

In an emotionally-charged interview with TMZ, the 35-year-old star said: ‘Nobody got hassled, nobody got grabbed on, nobody got followed, none of that happened.

‘It’s ridiculous, it’s crazy, I don’t know what kind of move that is but it’s not the truth man.”

He also insinuated that he did not surprise Khloe, but rather that she knew about the meeting in advance, saying: “I live in Las Vegas, so was there an address or a place given, or did I just guess right?’

He continued: ‘Did I just guess right, where this girl may be? You know I know Khloe. So how would you think I ended up there?’

Lamar also expressed disappointment that Khloe – who has not yet addressed the confrontation publicly – has not come to his defence, saying that he had ‘beat her to the punch.’

He also seemed to warn his ex that another incident in the press would force him to reveal details of their marriage breakdown, saying: ‘If it happens again, I will air everything out.’

Yikes.
