Lamar Odom breaks silence after absentee dad blames Kardashians for drug abuse
Lamar Odom is finally speaking out! The former Clippers player hadn't said a word in months regarding the drama surrounding his crack-cocaine addiction and recent marriage issues with wife Khloe Kardashian. But after his father, Joe, blamed the entire Kardashian family for his son's problems during an interview, Lamar has decided to break his silence and he didn't hold back a thing!

Lamar's father told RadarOnline that his son's "curse" began after he married Khloe. He claims the reality show exposed too much of Lamar's private life and also interfered with his basketball career. "They brought him down," he said. "He would be better off without them ... 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." Joe even went as far as referring to Khloe as "controlling" and calling her mother, Kris Jenner "an evil bitch."
He should have known better than to talk smack about the Kardashian clan, because it only caused Lamar to aggressively fire back. In fact, he wrote a whole spiel about it on Twitter and it was so lengthy he even had to continue it on TwitLonger. Here's what he had to say about the slam:
See here's the thing: Lamar's father struggled with a nasty drug addiction himself. He actually battled heroin for years. This isn't the first time Lamar has mentioned how his father wasn't around most of his life. So it's definitely ironic that his dad thinks he has the right to point the finger. If anything, it's like Lamar writes: "His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me."
I liked that Lamar took responsibility for his own actions. He mentioned in his note that the only person to blame is himself along with how loving and supporting Khloe and her family have been. He even claimed they're "the only family" he's ever really had.
It kind of makes me wonder if Khloe and Lamar are still trying to work things out. He's made many mistakes, but there's no doubt he still loves Khloe. So even though she took his last name off of her Instagram that may not mean things are completly over. There has to be a reason she's still walking around wearing her wedding ring, right?
