Lamar Odom Breaks Twitter Silence, Defends Khloe Kardashian
The NBA player spoke out against his father, Joe Odom, who blamed the Kardashians for his son's problems in a recent interview.
Lamar Odom, who has been going through drug addictions and marital issues with wife Khloe Kardashian, is not happy with his father, Joe Odom, and took to Twitter to tell his followers on Tuesday.
After a nearly two-month hiatus on the social media platform, the NBA player first tweeted "Seeing the snakes," before posting a longer tweet that expressed his frustration with his father. Odom wrote, "He wasn't there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raise me. Queens raised me."
Lamar continued, defending his marriage and in-laws, "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."
"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," wrote the NBA player. Lamar's entire tweet can be read here.
Lamar's angry reaction comes after his father's interview on Tuesday with Radar Online, where he told the gossip website, "Someone's got to speak out, I've got to do something about this. It's simple. They brought him down. He would be better off without them. Let him go and get his life together. I think the best thing for him would be to have a clean break, divorce Khloe and as a single man try and get his life back together."
He also added, "Without them, he'd still be in the NBA playing basketball. He'd be playing for the Lakers and be one of the top players in the league." The 14-year NBA veteran is currently a free agent.
Most recently, Lamar was charged with a DUI while driving on the 101 Freeway. He is set to appear in Van Nuys Superior Court on Sept. 27.
