After more than two months of silence on Twitter, Lamar resurfaced on Sept. 24th to lash out at his father, Joe Odom, who blamed the Kardashian family for all of his son’s problems in a Sept. 24th interview with RadarOnline. In the tweets, Lamar calls his father his ‘downfall’ and says he has no business dissing ‘the only family that has loved him.’
After several very tumultuous months of drug abuse and cheating rumors, Lamar Odom is finally opening up about his alleged struggles with drug addiction in a candid Twitter rant against his father, Joe Odom. Lamar comes to his wife Khloe Kardashian‘s defense in one very long tweet, saying she and her family “are the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time.” Read on for EXCLUSIVE details about Lamar’s shocking Twitter rant.
Lamar Odom Tweets Response To Dad — Problems Are NOT Kardashians’ Fault
Lamar got our attention when he said he was “Seeing the snakes” on Sept. 24th in his first tweet since July 12th. Less than 20 minutes later, Lamar elaborated on his tweet by posting the following:
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 shit. 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!
Wow! There is so much to learn from this post. First of all, Lamar seems completely furious with his father, Joe, for blaming Khloe and her family for his problems. Lamar obviously has a troubled relationship with his dad, who he says was never there for him. He also says the only thing his father ever gave him were “his own demons.” Lamar has revealed in the past that his father was a heroin addict — so by saying he inherited his father’s “demons,” is Lamar publicly acknowledging for the first time that he has a drug addiction?
The other important thing to understand from Lamar’s tweet is that, contrary to the rumors that Khloe is moving on and her family wants her to divorce him, they are actually the only ones who have been there for him “consistantly” during this “dark time” in his life.
We’re not sure what will come from this, but we think it’s a really good sign that Lamar is taking responsibility for his problems and also standing up for Khloe and her family. We hope he is on his way to getting the help he needs.
Lamar Odom At War With Joe Odom: ‘It’s On’
After Joe ripped into the Kardashian family in an outrageous new interview with RadarOnline.com, Lamar called his father to tell him off, a source close to the Odom family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Lamar called him, said, ‘Oh, it’s On,’ and then hung up,” the source reveals.
We’re not surprised Lamar is angry with his father after the horrible things Joe said to Radar about Khoe and her family.
“I wish he had never got married to Khloe to be honest. She’s controlling. Those Kardashian women all are,” he told the site. “You get married they think they wear the pants. You just bring them your whole paycheck, that’s how it works.”
What an all-time low-blow to Khloe and her family! Khloe has been doing everything she can to help Lamar and get him to go to rehab so they can work on their marriage. But Joe insists that Khloe and her family have been a bad influence on Lamar.
“It’s been the curse of his life,” he said. “He hasn’t really accomplished anything since he’s been with them. 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.”
Thanks to Lamar, we now know that the Kardashians have been incredibly supportive of him during this difficult time. We hope this means there is still a chance for Khloe and Lamar.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that Lamar stood up for Khloe? Do you think it’s a good sign? Let us know!
