Even though their friends and family have been saying how happy they are for newlyweds Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian, there is still some speculation surrounding the legitimacy of the marriage. With a reality-show camera crew at the ceremony and varying reports about the state of a prenuptial agreement between the pair, it seems that some people question whether the two are actually married.
But Odom wants the world to know that his marriage to Khloe, who he had been dating for only a month before marrying her on Sunday, is "real" and "legal."
"It's crazy how perception works in America when you're looking at things from the outside," Odom told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times. "It might be off, it might be on. But anybody that was there will tell you that it was a beautiful event and it was real."
Odom was also quick to shut down rumors that he married the reality starlet in order to garner more publicity. "I don't need that. I get enough with the Lakers," he said. "I do well for myself."
He also defended the couple's choice to marry so quickly. They may have only known each other for a month before they married, but he doesn't think that will hurt them in the long run. "There's people who've been married for 25 years and they get divorced," he explained. "There's people who get married overnight and the next thing you know they've been married 25 years."
Fans can see the wedding on an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" on November 8 on E!.
