As bad as everyone claims Lamar Odom is doing these days, it seems his father, Joe, will be worse off in a minute if he doesn’t make things right with his son.
We told you last week how Joe went on a tirade against the Kardashian family, claiming that they really care nothing about his son, whose life is currently all over the place. He even went as far as to say that they’re to blame for his current state and that Kris Jenner is an “evil b***h” and Kim Kardashian is a “p**n star.” Of course, Lamar lashed out in response to his father’s statements, even reminding pops in front of the world that he “wasn’t there 2 raise me.”
“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.”
Joe Odom went on to apologize, probably because he initially assumed Lamar wouldn’t respond, and as it seems, because Lamar is that man’s meal ticket.
Joe reached out to TMZ and and told them that Lamar has stopped paying his rent, which he had been taking care of for four years now. Joe claims that after he spoke to Radar Online about the Kardashian family, his son called him and went off over his comments and told him that he’s on his now and needs to pay his own bills. Those bills include the $2,900 per month rent that Joe is unable to pay. He says that he can’t afford it and if he can’t find the money, he’ll be kicked out of his apartment by the end of next month (people kick folks out that quickly??).
You would think that Joe would learn after speaking publicly to the media in the first place that doing that only makes things worse. His issues with his son need to be handled privately, and I doubt Lamar is about to pull out his check book now that he’s confiding in TMZ.
On a side note, the four-year anniversary of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar’s marriage was on Friday, but it looks like they spent that day apart. After being seen hitting the gym, Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram of a gift she received from her friends, twins Malika and Khadija, on her anniversary–but nothing from her estranged husband. Oh Lamar…
