Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian might be going through a rough patch in their marital life, but Odom has shown that he will not tolerate anyone, especially his family, bashing the Kardashians.
Through a tweet on Tuesday, Odom defended the Kardashians, whom his father, Joe, blamed for the downfall of the NBA player.
“I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of shit,” Odom wrote. “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.”
Joe, in a no-holds barred interview with Radar Online published on Tuesday, said that the Kardashians put too much pressure on Odom with their various reality shows, prompting him to turn to drugs. He even called Kris Jenner, Kardashian’s mother, “an evil b*tch” and dismissed Kim Kardashian as a “porn star.” Joe added that he believed Odom has been cursed ever since he became a part of the Kardashian household after marrying Khloe in 2009.
Bashing his father for these comments, Odom wrote on Twitter that Joe was not invited to his wedding and that he has never met Kris Jenner or some of the other members of the Kardashian clan, and so has no right to badmouth them.
“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!” Odom wrote.
