The Word: Lamar Odom defends Kardashians, blasts his dad
Lamar Odom has undoubtedly caused the Kardashian clan a lot of heartache this summer. At least he’s grateful.Lamar’s father recently gave an interview in which he blamed the Kardashians for his son’s drug problems and said he wished Lamar had never married Khloe Kardashian. Lamar quickly leapt to his wife and in-laws’ defense on Twitter, writing, “I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of s—. 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.”
Lamar added that his father has never even met Kris Jenner or called Lamar to see how he’s doing. “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.”
Oh man. Everything about this is making it hard to snark on the Kardashians like I normally would. Can we get back to the Kardashians being about fake weddings and unappealing retail, instead of an apparent drug addict unspooling in real time?
