Lamar Odom has remained pretty quiet when it comes to his personal life lately, from drug allegations to marriage problems with Khloe Kardashian. But when his own father, Joe Odom, put his family-in-law on blast, it didn’t take long for him to speak up and defend the Kardashians.
Joe went off on the famous family in an interview earlier this week, claiming that it was them who destroyed Lamar’s life. After calling Kris Jenner an “evil bitch” and Khloe and Lamar’s E! reality show a “curse,” he pushed the idea of a divorce. “They don’t give a f—k about my son. It’s more about the damage they do to the Kardashian brand,” he said. “They brought him down. He’d be better off without them. Let him go, get his life together.”

The usually quiet Lamar jumped to the Kardashian’s defense by posting a long Twitter rant, directed to Joe. It went like this…
“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 s—t. He wasn’t there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raise 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 “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!
Well said, Lamar. Khloe and Lamar haven’t yet to make any comments on their marriage, but she was spotted last weekend in Las Vegas at the iHeartRadio Music Festival with her wedding ring on. We wish these two nothing but the best.
