Lamar Odom has been staying silent for several weeks, while the press is having a party with articles about his life from unidentified sources. He has been linked to other women and drug use, even though he has denied all rumors in recent comments made when TMZ caught him on the street. However, he is now speaking out after his father decided to share his story. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Sept. 24, Lamar Odom is finally speaking out about his troubles and surprisingly, the story he is sharing has to do with his father, not his wife.
“Seeing the snakes,” he simply tweeted yesterday after seeing the stories from his father. And while fans didn’t know what he was talking about, he did write a longer explanation. “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—t. 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,” Odom wrote on Twitter. Clearly, he is referring to his father, who has been making an appearance in his life over the past couple of years.
“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!” he added.
So, two things can be taken from this rant. The first is that Odom is indeed going through a hard and dark time as he mentions himself. The second thing is that the Kardashian family has indeed been there for him, meaning that the sources claiming that Kris Jenner wants Khloe to divorce Odom are probably lying. Also, his father isn’t exactly a trustworthy source considering he hasn’t been in his life.
What do you think of Odom’s rant?
