Dennis Hof, the reality TV star and brothel owner, has told the Kardashians to "go to hell." Hof is the owner of the brothel where Lamar Odom was found unresponsive on October 10, and he isn't letting the media-hungry Kardashian clan speak for him or his business. Rumor has it that the family asked Dennis Hof to keep his mouth on the shut side about what was going on with Lamar Odom and to let Khloe do the talking about the situation. Perez Hilton reported that in addition to refusing to be gagged, the Kardashian's reps are accusing Dennis Hof and/or his establishment of stealing from Lamar.
"We reached out to Dennis politely asking him to respect Lamar's (and Khloe's) privacy during this difficult time and refrain from talking to the press. This is a very painful situation, as I know you are aware, and the idea that anyone would use it to seek publicity is really sad."
The big price tag isn't the only reason the Kardashians are crying foul. They've come forward with allegations that Odom was found with no cash among his belongings at Denis Hof's brothel. Lamar Odom is well known to keep large sums of cash on his person, so his family finds it odd that he was essentially broke when he was rescued from the brothel by first responders.
The Kardashian family is also not really used to being publicly stymied. It's very possible that they're pointing fingers in retaliation for Dennis Hof refusing to play the game by their rules. Not only did Hof refuse their request to keep quiet, he publicly told them to "go to hell."
Not really a way to get on the media-mogul family's best side.
There are plenty of theories swirling, even five days after the initial tragedy that landed Odom in critical condition in the first place. There is also plenty of blame. Unfortunately, at this time it's almost expected. Family members are distraught; they're already in mourning. No firm prognosis for Odom's recovery has been given, and it's rumored that family members are preparing for the worst. Dennis Hof does have a business to protect; when you're talking about one of the few remaining legal brothels in the U.S., negative publicity is the last thing you need.
