Lamar Odom is suing his former manager, Tonita Bybee, for allegedly forging documents in order to steal his home.
According to the lawsuit, obtained exclusively by Page Six on Wednesday, Odom alleges that Bybee — whom he claims he fired in May 2022 — concocted a scheme and improperly sold off a house he owns in Brooklyn, N.Y., to a third party by forging a deed.
The retired NBA star claims the house in question has been in his family “for nearly three decades.”
He also claims his aunt Carol Janean Mercer has been living there since the August 2022 passing of his uncle Michael Mercer.

Per the suit, Carol Janean is purportedly facing eviction as a result of Bybee’s alleged “fraudulent transfer.”
Odom, 43, is accusing Bybee of “identity theft,” “conversion,” “embezzlement,” “misappropriation” and “various other iterations of fraud.”
He claims she “acted with malice, wanton dishonesty and a high degree of immoral turpitude.”

The former basketball player is also suing the public notary whom he claims “improperly notarized” the allegedly forged deed because they “attested” to his “presence and signature, despite the fact that [he] never appeared before [the public notary] either in person or remotely to execute the forged deed.”
Odom claims Bybee engaged in unauthorized use of his name, signature, likeness, social security number, employer identification number at one of his companies, verified social media accounts and email addresses.
