Khloé Kardashian Odom is backing her husband, Los Angeles Clippers forward Lamar Odom, following his videotaped confrontation with paparazzi on Wednesday, in which he threw a photographer's gear all over the street.

"Wow. Can't believe a paparazzi snuck into our gated area and violated our private property!" she tweeted. "This is the same pap that did a hit and run but my brother and I caught him and he has the nerve to taunt us! Be ashamed of yourself. . . . But shout out to my hubby for posing with the fans!" she added, referring to Odom's pleasant treatment of a female fan who walked up to him amid the altercation. "I love my Lam!"

People magazine Thursday detailed that Odom, 33, had been stopped at a traffic light close to his home in a Los Angeles gated community. A photographer in another car asked him about recent tabloid reports that he cheated on his wife with a woman he met at the Stadium Strip Club in Washington, D.C. At first, according to TMZ.com, Odom calmly responded by saying, "I would never cheat on my wife, that's why I wear my wedding ring."

But things soon soured, as seen in the 90-second video posted on TMZ. The video shows Odom throwing camera equipment out of a car at curbside, and after an edit, opening the trunk of another car also parked at the curb. He is holding a piece of metal throughout.
