Lamar Odom Hits Back at Dad’s Kardashian Trashing
Lamar Odom is on the warpath after his outspoken dad trashed the Kardashians in an interview with a British tabloid.
Angry over reports that his son — once an NBA standout — is now an out-of-work crack addict, Joe Odom (aka “The Black Michael Lohan”) attacked Lamar’s in-laws in a series of quotes that have since gone viral. Joe, who has longed battled heroin addictin, blames the Kardashian’s for Lamar’s struggle with addiction. He also called Kim a “porno star,” Kris Jenner a “bitch” and noted that Lamar has been “cursed” since marrying “controlling” Khloe in 2009.
Interestingly enough, the reality show clan has found an ally in Lamar. Despite whispers that his marriage is on its last leg — with Khloe living in the couple’s home solo — the younger Odom hit back at his dad’s comments on social media. Lamar tweeted Tuesday:
“For the first time came a blessing of a FAMILY that I married into. FAMILY. That man wasn’t even invited to my wedding. He has never met my mother-in-law and some of my other family. How can a man who has NOT once called to check on my wellbeing have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own ‘son.'”
For the first time, Lamar, 33, seems to acknowledge that he has some kind of problem. He then credits the Kardashians for helping him through the tough times:
“My dad is disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return. They are the ONLY ones that have been there consistently 4 me during this dark time. Only person to blame is myself.”
“Say what you want about me but leave the ones who have done nothing but protect and love me out of this!”
