Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian and her husband LAMAR ODOM have become the latest victims of the celebrity 'swatting' craze after police raced to their Los Angeles home to investigate reports the sportsman had been shot.

Authorities swarmed the couple's mansion on Friday (10May13) after receiving an emergency call alleging that the Los Angeles Clippers ace had been seriously injured following a heated argument with a friend, but cops soon discovered the incident was just another sick hoax as Odom was found alone and alive and well at the property, according to TMZ.com.

The false alarm was the latest in a string of fake crimes reported by pranksters in recent months, which have targeted stars such as Justin Bieber, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Rihanna and Kardashian's mum and stepdad, Kris and Bruce Jenner.
