Lamar Odom Defends the Kardashians, Slams “Absent” Father as His “Downfall”

3 Apr

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.”

He continued:

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!”

Lamar Odom's Dad Says He's Not Missing

Lamar Odom‘s father is coming to his son’s defense amid rumors his marriage is falling apart over his supposed drug abuse.

And reports that the basketball pro has gone missing are just simply not true.

“I spoke with my son last night,” Joe Odom told Celebuzz. “I know where he is at, he’s around.”

Any news to the contrary he adds is “a bunch of bulls**t.”

“I told him I want him to resume his basketball career and that this s**t is not good, it’s a bad look,” he said.

“I love my son.”

Over the weekend news surfaced that no one had seen Lamar for three days, including his wife Khloe Kardashian and her family.

“I heard the reports, I’m his father,” he said when asked about reports that the former L.A. Clippers star’s four-year marriage is crumbling due to his supposed drug addiction.

The constant negative attention is a reason his son has kept a lower profile, he says.

“They’re always around and it’s probably depressing him, the poor fellow. It’s terrible,” said Joe.

“That’s why I don’t want to talk to anybody because of this negative s**t… because of the bulls**t they’re saying.

“It’s probably making him depressed, that’s maybe one reason.”

Joe specifically pointed out the recent run-in with paps inside Lamar’s gated community when he allegedly destroyed a paparazzo’s camera (which the D.A. has decided not to prosecute.)
