LAMAR ODOM Repped By Robert Shapiro If He’s Good Enough for OJ …
Lamar Odom needs some legal firepower after his DUI arrest, and its OJ Simpson’s lawyer Robert Shapiro to the rescue … TMZ has learned.
Lamar has hired Shapiro in what promises to be a sticky situation. TMZ broke the story … Lamar was popped early Friday AM on the 101 Freeway … and cops believe he was under the influence of both drugs and booze. Shapiro is known for plea bargaining. These cases are pretty standard — he’ll probably plead no contest to one count of DUI and get probation. He’ll also be required to attend an alcohol ed class. And, since he refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test, he’ll automatically get his driver’s license yanked for 1 year. No getting around that.
This has Kris Jenner’s paw prints all over it. She’s used Shapiro for other legal messes in the past — most recently Robert Kardashian Jr.’s criminal battery and theft case.
Ironically, Kris’ ex-hubby, the late Robert Kardashian, repped OJ Simpson along with Shapiro. Kris was best friends with Nicole Brown Simpson and felt OJ was guilty as sin.
