There is clearly no love lost between Lamar Odom and his father, Joe Odom. Joe ended up giving an interview to Radar explaining that he thought that Lamar’s drug problems were all due to the Kardashians, and he pretty much blamed Khloe for all of Lamar’s issues.
However, Lamar is now hitting back against the father that he barely knows, explaining in a twitter rant, “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.” He continues in this vein and says that Khloe and her family have been the only ones who have supported him through all of his recent troubles, and he also adds that he takes full responsibility for his drug addictions.
You know, it takes the bigger man to admit that drug addictions are self-inflicted, and good on Lamar for realizing that. However, he may not be willing to admit it, but living your life in the spotlight does eventually take its toll.
What do you guys think about Lamar’s comments? Do you agree with them? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
