Finally, some good news in Lamar Odom’s life for a change.
The troubled NBA star whose career and marriage appear to be in a state of flux was in Los Angeles City Attorney’s office Monday, according to multiple reports. And while he did reportedly receive quite a talking to, the good news is he won’t go to jail.
E! Online managed to get somebody on the record, LA spokesperson Frank Mateljan telling the site that while Odom no longer faces criminal charges for the incident, the 33-year-old "was ‘admonished’ for his alleged behavior and the City Attorney ‘advised him on how to go forward.’"
TMZ added that sources "connected with Lamar" said the former Laker and Clipper agreed to anger management counseling.
With the legal action apparently now in the rear view, civil action may still be in play. According to E! Online, the paparazzo, Stefan Saad, still has a civil suit filed in September pending against Odom. He reportedly is seeking more than $500,000 in total.
It has been a very tumultuous few months for Odom.
