After a long while of “he said, she said”, gossip and whatnot the man himself, Lamar Odom has finally addressed the rumors surrounding his drug abuse issues, admitting he is in a dark place at this point in his life. It seems as though Lamar felt like it was his responsibility to defend the Kardashian family after they were slandered by Lamar’s father, Joe.
It all started with an interview that Joe Odom did with Radar Online, in which he said, “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 added, “The mother has been talking alot of trash about my son, saying he’s on drugs and stuff like that. She’s got something against my son, something against my family. Kris Jenner is very negative. She’s an evil b***h. She doesn’t care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money.”
It was after that, that Lamar took to Twitter and said, “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 alot 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 demon 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 there 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 out to everyone!”
Now that he has admitted he has a problem, hopefully he will seek the proper help for what he’s going through. Best of luck!
