Lamar Odom has slammed his father, saying the Kardashians are the only ones supporting him during his “dark time.”
The athlete has been battling an addiction to crack cocaine according to some outlets, with other reports he has a problem with Oxycontin and Ambien. His marriage to Khloé Kardashian is rocky due to the allegations, plus claims he has been unfaithful. The pair are not thought to be living together, with Khloé apparently throwing Lamar out of their home until he attends rehab.
The basketball star’s father Joe gave an interview this week in which he insisted all his son’s issues are down to the family he married in to. Joe, who has battled addiction, slammed matriarch Kris Jenner and called for Lamar to get a divorce. His son has now hit back in a lengthy post on Twitter.
“He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me,” Lamar fumed. “He disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return. They are the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time. Only person 2 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! This goes to out to everyone! (sic)”
This marks the first time Lamar has alluded to his personal issues, having previously insisted to TMZ that everything in his life was fine.
The 33-year-old goes on to say the Kardashians have supported him since he joined their family, when he and Khloé married four years ago. He also reveals his father was not as his wedding and claims he never cared about him.
“Won’t continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of sh*t,” Lamar said. “He wasn’t there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me.
“For the first time since they left, 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 me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own ‘son’. (sic)”
Lamar is currently living in his downtown Los Angeles apartment while Khloé is staying in their Calabasas home.
