Lamar Odom says the Kardashians are his real family and that they have treated him really well despite the current issues that he's going through. Finally breaking his silence, Lamar took to his Twitter account on Sept. 24 to let everyone know that the Kardashian family has really been there for him through the years and that he considers them his real family.
"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," Lamar said in part.
Odom feels the Kardashians have been there for him and supported him more than his own dad. His dad -- who has been on "Khloe and Lamar" in the past -- has been accused of leaking information about Lamar (perhaps about his drug addiction) to the media.
"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! (sic)," Lamar concluded.
Odom and the Kardashians have been linked for a couple of years thanks to Lamar and Khloe's marriage, but with that reportedly on the rocks, who will Lamar have? It does sound like he wants to work things out and that he wants to keep Khloe in his life. This is the first time that Lamar has spoken out about his recent troubles and while there is so much more that he could say, he chose wisely. It definitely doesn't sound like he's ready to throw his marriage away... thoughts?
