Khloe Kardashian has forged a friendship with the rapper Jayceon "The Game" Taylor, and now the latter is protecting her from some paparazzi who are seeking to learn more about the marital woes that have been the forefront of media headlines recently.
Kardashian, the 29-year-old "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star who is married to troubled NBA free agent Lamar Odom, recently opened up about her husband's issues on her reality television show. Odom, 33, has made headlines in recent weeks for allegedly stepping out on his marriage and battling with a drug addiction that he allegedly only checked into a rehabilitation center for one day to treat.
After admitting to her husband's emotional issues and dropping his surname from hers on social networking websites, members of the paparazzi hounded Kardashian while with The Game at a recent outing at Tru Hollywood nightclub in California. However, The Game lashed out at the paparazzi in an attempt to protect his friend and her privacy.
"Put your cameras down, or there's gonna be 7 broke cameras! You thought Kanye was a problem? I'm a REAL problem," the rapper told paparazzi recently, according to TMZ reports. "..Y'all don't respect nobody.]If I say put it down, then put it down. Sometimes y'all gotta respect people. [expletive]."
Some media outlets have insinuated that The Game may have some romantic interest in Kardashian while he has built a close relationship with her brother.
"Khloe's brother, Rob [loves Jayceon]. They are very tight, and the entire family loves Jayceon. He is constantly playing practical jokes on Khloe, trying to make her laugh,"Radaronline.com reported. "He seems to be the only person in her life that can make her smile. He will continue to offer his support to Khloe."
However the 33-year-old rapper has denied such claims.
"Khloe is my friend. She is like a sister," he told TMZ. "We have never and will never be sleeping together. Lamar is my homie and her husband and I wish people wouldn't spread such false rumors."
