Unlike just about everyone else involved in the situation, Lamar Odom’s father Joe Odom is talking to the media about his son’s drug problem — and he’s placing the blame squarely on the Kardashian clan’s shoulders.
“They don’t give a fuck about my son. It’s more about the damage they do to the Kardashian brand. They brought him down. He’d be better off without them. Let him go, get his life together.” Oh boy.
Joe believes that matriarch Kris Jenner is hyping the drug issues in the media in order to push Lamar out of the family. He even goes so far as to insinuate that Lamar may have gotten the drugs from the Kardashians.
“I blame Kris in particular, she’s been through a lot of stuff herself. She’s no Cinderella. I can’t really say if the Kardashians are doing drugs, but my son would never use hard drugs. I can’t pinpoint right now who’s giving it him, but I’m going to investigate. The Kardashians haven’t been a good influence on my son.”
“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 bitch. She doesn’t care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money.”
Well, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t agree that Kris is ultimately concerned with money and image, but to say that the Kardashians fed him drugs may be a bit of a stretch. He didn’t stop with mommy dearest though. He also had words for Lamar’s wife, Khloe Kardashian-Odom.
“I wish he had never got married to Khloe to be honest. She’s controlling. Those Kardashian women all are. You get married they think they wear the pants. You just bring them your whole paycheck, that’s how it works.
“I saw her totally differently when I heard the way she talked privately. It isn’t pleasant. In public she’s nice, but if you see her personally you see the real person come out of her. The mother’s like that too. The whole family, they put up an act.”
Khloe, for her part, has removed her married name from all social networking sites and was seen partying it up last night with rapper The Game and bestie Malika Haqq. She did have on her wedding ring, but she was trying to hide it in photos. Hmm …
But wait! Daddy Odom has a little something for Kim Kardashian as well:
“I heard Kim say they don’t have crackheads in their family. That pissed me off. Look at where she came from. We don’t want porno stars in our family,” adds Joe.
Oooh. Get ‘em!
Clearly Joe is angry and hurt about his son’s downfall. That’s understandable. However, he has to also think about what part he may have played in this. Joe has had a long and troubled history with drugs. They even addressed Lamar’s strained relationship with his father (due to drug use) on the show. So as tempting as it may be to foist blame on the Kardashians, I have a feeling that Lamar’s demons were haunting him way before they came along. What Joe needs to do right now is be there for his son and help him through his recovery.
