Lamar Odom lashes out at father, breaks Twitter silence to talk 'dark time'


There have been a lot of rumors and negative reports about Lamar Odom since his DUI arrest and subsequent reveal he has a drug addiction. Odom has remained silent through them all, but a recent story against him caused him to break his Twitter silence.

In an interview with Radar Online -- and before that, Celebuzz -- Odom's father Joe Odom blamed the Kardashians, and in specific wife Khloe Kardashian and mother-in-law Kris Jenner, as being the reasons for Odom's downward spiral. Joe is a former drug addict who has since gotten clean, and Odom took to Twitter to blame his father for the majority of his troubles as well as defend his "family."

"Seeing the snakes. 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***," Odom tweets. "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."

Odom continues, "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!"

Of course, Joe's reports have always been pretty unsubstantiated. Let's not forget the time he cried "baby," which ended up to be entirely false.
