Lamar Odom Defends the Kardashians, Slams “Absent” Father as His “Downfall”
Lamar Odom is breaking his silence.
The NBA star took to Twitter Wednesday to defend wife Khloe Kardashian and her famous family against hurtful allegations from his biological father Joe, who recently told the press that Odom is “better off” seeking a divorce.
“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,” he wrote in a lengthy rant. “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”. He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me. 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!
Odom has been facing rumors of drug use since the 33-year-old’s alleged mistress came out to say she had seen him use crack cocaine. Since then, the basketballer and his wife have been keeping a low profile and refusing to acknowledge divorce rumors.
Kardashian tweeted late August, “Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk sh*t about my family! F*ck you and shame on you! I’m too protective for this shit!”
