According to TMZ, Lamar Odom's father has claimed that it was wife Khloe and her family who drove Lamar to addiction. Joe Odom called Kris Jenner an "evil bitch" and said that the Kardashians had cursed his son. Meanwhile, Lamar's father has also battled addiction. Whatever the case, Lamar was not going to take this lying down. Yesterday evening, Lamar released an open letter on Twitter to address his father's nasty claims. Lamar writes:
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!
An hour before Lamar released the letter about his father, he tweeted this:

It's nice to see Lamar sticking up for his wife and her family, along with acknowledging that he is indeed in a "dark place." We wish the best for them.
