NBA free agent Lamar Odom had been absent from Twitter for over two months, but returned Tuesday night with a splash. He first tweeted out “Seeing the snakes”, and then went on to make a pretty lengthy tweet (via TwitLonger) addressing his Dad’s comments about the Kardashian family.
“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. 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”. 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!”
For those who don’t know, Lamar’s dad Joe Odom made some comments recently about the family his son married into, and as you can tell, Lamar isn’t happy. Joe said his son is “better off without” his wife Khloe Kardashian, and that “They brought him down.” He also said “I wish he had never got married to Khloe. She’s controlling. Those Kardashian women all are. In public she’s nice, but if you see her personally you see the real person. The mother’s like that, too.”
This tweet from Lamar is a huge bombshell towards his Dad and I’m very interested to see the events that follow this, because we all know the media will just blow this up.
Lamar’s actions over the past few months have given us the idea that he wants out of the Kardashian family. After his rant on Twitter, he seems to have much appreciation and love for the family. Maybe he will change his ways and try to fix his marriage with Khloe, or maybe he just hates his Dad and wanted to make that known. I guess we’ll find out sooner or later.
