Former NBA player Lamar Odom is not dating a trans model and actress, according to sources close to the star.
Lamar Odom, who was married to Khloé Kardashian from 2009 to 2016, is associated with transactress and model Daniiellè Alexis.
Social media speculation about the two dating arose after Alexis posted pictures of herself with Odom.
But dating rumors have now been put to rest after Odom, who is currently single, says they are just friends.
Sources close to the two-time NBA champion told TMZ the pair know each other and are friendly, adding that Odom “has no problem with the transgender community”.
Rumors recently surfaced when Alexis shared a photo of her and Odom on her Instagram on Thursday (September 22).
A previous post from the couple, shared on Aug. 7, reads, “One of the most beautiful people I’ve met.”
According to TMZ the pair met in June when Odom was in LA for the BET Awards which celebrate black culture in multiple media forms.
The sources claim that Odom was out shopping when a car pulled up and Alexis jumped out to ask for a photo.
TMZ‘s sources say the duo tends to talk about the film industry as Alexis is an aspiring actress.
The sources also said he has “no problem with Alexis being a transgender woman”, but “there just isn’t a romantic spark between them”.
