Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have already wreaked havoc in Dallas, by setting off a war among a number of high-end realtors who are vying for their business. The displaced couple has been looking for a place to live, and rather than using just one realtor, they decided 6 would be 6 times better. Here’s the problem … the realtors claim Khloe and Lamar made each of them feel as if they were the only ones, and they’re now fighting over who can lay claim to a commission. And it gets even better, because cameras for their reality show have been following Khloe and Lamar around during their house hunt, with different realtors in tow. So the realtors not only think they’ll score a commission, they’re also dreaming of fame. Apparently Khloe and Lamar have recognized their lapse of etiquette, and they’ve settled on just one realtor. What’s more, we’re told they just found a condo in the W Hotel. It’s a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, 1800 square-foot pad. It’s listed for lease at $7,500 a month.

As for Tareq — he categorically denies the allegations … telling TMZ, Michaele is a “chronic liar” whose accusations are “absurd.” Tareq insists he loved her and did everything humanly possible to support her during their marriage.
