Lamar Odom announced that he had regained control of his Instagram account with a pair of shots that were shared to his Insta Story on Thursday.

The 42-year-old athlete previously accused his old management team of hijacking his social media platforms.

In his first message, Odom expressed that ‘anything you saw posted in my story on on my page was not me posting or commenting from this page,’ and he then offered details about his new management team. 

The athlete went on to share a second message to express that he ‘is back and only LAMAR is running his account!!’ 

By not having access to those accounts, the athlete previously claimed that he was losing out on advertising dollars, to the tune of about $8,000 a post, according to TMZ.

Odom reportedly cut all ties with his former management on July 19, and then requested all of the usernames and passwords for his four main social media accounts.

He alleged that all of the passwords to these pages were previously changed and he doesn’t have any of the login information at hand.

‘It’s kind of crazy I’m going through some things. I left my old management, of course was my decision,’ he said in a video posted to TMZ.

‘I should be able to do what I want – a man 42-years old – but my social media is not yours. If I choose to leave that’s the decision that I make. Your decision shouldn’t be to highjack my social media. It lets me know what cloth you come from,’ he continued.
