Lamar — you reportedly flipped out when you heard that your daughter, Destiny, told the world, she was happy your marriage to Khloe busted up. But Lamar, you’re already practically estranged from your kids, don’t yell at Destiny — instead, show her that you love her.
Lamar Odom, I’m sure you were hurt when you learned that Destiny Odom, your 15-year-old daughter with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales, took to Ask.fm to tell readers that she wasn’t surprised in the least that Khloe Kardashian had filed divorce papers and ended your marriage.
Lamar Odom Mad At Daughter Destiny — Don’t Be Furious Over Her Marriage Diss
It couldn’t have been wonderful to read that Destiny dissed your marriage to Khloe, “No one thought they were going to last, so honestly, who [cares]?”, she wrote.
No matter how many problems you and Khloe had and how estranged you’ve been for these past few months, you still must be super sad that your four-year marriage is over. You did love Khloe and she loved you. A lack of love is not what ended your relationship.
Unfortunately, it seems that you can’t own up to your responsibility for your marriage falling apart, but nevertheless, don’t take out your disappointment and hurt on your teen daughter.
Lamar, you may feel that Destiny was being cruel, but you have to be more sensitive to your daughter. Think about it – don’t you think she’s really crying out for attention from you? She’s only 15, she’s still a kid. And she needs her daddy. But her daddy is thousands of miles away in LA, while she lives in New York City.
Lamar, you grew up without a mother and with an absentee father. Your dad , Joe Odom, wasn’t there for you, when you were young and needed him most, and now you’re doing the same thing to your two kids. You of all people, know how much it hurts to be neglected by a parent. How could you go missing from your own children’s lives?
If reports are true, you haven’t seen either Destiny or your son, Lamar Odom Jr., 11, since last February. Lamar, that’s an awfully long time for you to go without being with your two children. So while you might be angry with Destiny for going public with her feelings, maybe this is the only way she felt she could reach you. I bet that she feels very neglected. In fact, she probably feels like you don’t even love her.
Lamar Odom — You Need To Be There For Your Children
Lamar, you need to see this from Destiny’s perspective, and you can’t blame Khloe either, for creating a wedge between you and your kids. It’s up to you, as their dad, to make sure that you see them, spend time with them, communicate with them, and be there for them the way a father should be. That’s your responsibility.
It wasn’t up to Khloe to make sure you had time for them, even though a source tells HollywoodLife.com that Khloe was the one who made sure that you did see your children when you were healthy and sober.
I think it’s very poignant that Destiny wrote on Ask.fm that “now she has you all to yourself.” She saw Khloe as a rival for your attention, but that’s not her fault or Khloe’s fault. Destiny only felt that way because you didn’t made her and Lamar Jr. a priority.
So Lamar, please don’t call Destiny and yell at her or say anything negative about her in public. Instead, either get on a plane and go spend Christmas with her and Lamar Jr, or get on the phone ASAP. You need to tell Destiny how much you love her. You need to apologize to her for not being present for her.
Lamar, use Destiny’s public statement as a “teachable moment” for yourself. Teach yourself now to be a better father while Destiny and Lamar are still young enough to re-accept your fatherly love.
Don’t you agree, HollywoodLifers? Should Lamar reach out to to Destiny with love and not anger . Let me know.
