Meanwhile, his father says Odom has no drug problem...
TMZ reports that Lamar Odom has trashed his father Joe for claiming that Khloe Kardashian and her mother caused Lamar to have a crack addiction. He said that he's in a "dark place".
He said: "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!"
He posted an angry letter on Twitter, responding to a published interview with his father Joe Odom in which he claimed that the Kardashians cursed Lamar and ruined his career putting so much pressure on him he started using drugs. Joe called Kris Jenner "an evil bitch." Joe has also fought drug addiction.
Lamar replied: "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. 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."
He could mean his separation from Khloe when he says "dark time", but it's also likely he's finally mentioning his drug addiction publicly. He also said his father's "demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me."
He continued: "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!"
Meanwhile, his father told TMZ that Odom is "clean" and doesn't have a drug problem. He added he doesn't believe the stories about his son.
He said he's sorry he dissed the Kardashians, even if he said before that Lamar would be better without them and "they don't give a f**k about my son". He said he thinks they are a "wonderful family."
What caused the rant was a segment on The Wendy Williams Show in which someone called him a heroin addict. He said he's been clean for 30 years and "nobody's perfect."
