Lamar defends the Kardashians, calling them 'the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return' and 'the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time.'
Despite their alleged marital woes, Lamar Odom is fiercely protective of his wife Khloe Kardashian. The basketball player is back on Twitter, after absent for a while following his alleged drug addiction, to fire back at his estranged father Joe for making derogatory comments about his wife and her family.
In an interview with Radar Online, Joe accused the Kardashian family of bringing his son 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 said.
Joe went on with his criticism towards Kris Jenner, "The mother has been talking a lot 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**ch. She doesn't care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money."
In a lengthy Twitter post, Lamar responded, "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 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.' "
The NBA star continued blasting his father, "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," he concluded. "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!"
