Even multimillionaire basketball-turned-reality-stars have bad days — as Lamar Odom can surely attest. During a heated row with photographers Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Khloé Kardashian snapped, and we're not talking about pictures, people.

According to reports, the notoriously nice guy grew irritated with the paparazzi and asked them, "Put your cameras down and let me talk to you, man to man." To be honest, that doesn't sound like such an unreasonable request to us, but what do we know?

When they continued taking photos instead of doing as he'd asked, Lamar lost his cool. Naturally, this whole incident was caught on tape.

A video on TMZ shows him walking over to one of the photographers' cars, opening the (unlocked) door, retrieving a metal rod … and smashing it into the side of the vehicle. Lamar then moves on to another car, apparently also owned by a pap and also not locked.

Lamar then yanks a pile of camera equipment, including a very expensive-looking camera, from the back and chucks it onto the busy street. Stunned tourists and photographers look on as the star has a sudden change of heart and starts picking everything up from the street and putting it in his own Mercedes instead. Guess he decided to take it home.

He seems to be able to compartmentalize his anger, however, because just moments later when an excited fan requests a photo, he's a total gentleman. He even asks her if he should remove his baseball hat for the shot! (She lets him keep it on — apparently she wanted him to keep that hot head covered.)

Although the whole encounter is less than minutes long, it's quickly become something bigger, as Khloé went on a wild Twitter tirade to defend her man despite the latest round of rumors of trouble in their marriage.

"Wow can't believe a paparazzi snuck into our gated area and violated our private property!!!!" she begins before adding, "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 your self."

But she was just getting started.

"F*** the papz!!!!! You f***ing losers!!!!! But shout out to my hubby for posing with the fans! I love my Lam!" she tweeted.

Khloé's rep could not be reached for comment.

Clearly, Lamar's wife is on his side — but will the courts be? One of the photographers involved has already filed a police report for vandalism so we'll find out eventually. In the meantime, maybe the photographers would have more luck with him if they posed as fans.
