“Someone’s got to speak out; I’ve got to do something about this,” he said. “It’s simple. They brought him down.”
Indeed, Lamar was flying high when he met Khloe in 2009. He’d won his first NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers.
He met Khloe shortly afterward, and they married after dating for just two months. The marriage was filmed for the family reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
“He would be better off without them. Let him go and get his life together,” Joe told gossip site radaronline. “I think the best thing for him would be to have a clean break; divorce Khloe and as a single man try and get his life back together,” Joe said.
But only so much can be laid on the Kardashians. TheImproper published an in-depth report on his troubles on Sept 1, after he’d allgedly gone missing.
Odom grew up poor, tough Jamaica, Queens, New York. Drugs were always just around the corner. His father was a crack addict; his mother died of cancer when he was 12.
Joe was never around much for his kid and Lamar had numerous run-ins with trouble, even though his basketball prowess gave him an early ticket out off the streets. He played for several catholic high schools noted for their basketball programs, and went to a top college, The University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
But his college career was marred by scandal and cut short. He got kicked out of UNLV and played one season for a small college before jumping into the NBA draft. He put together some solid seasons as a pro, but after 2009, his career turned sketchy as well.
Joe’s main beef with the Kardashians is his belief that they don’t really care about his son. He as especially hard on momager Kris Jenner. “She doesn’t care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money,” he charged, labeling her a bit*h.
He also charged that the Kardashians are two-faced. ‘I saw [Khloe] totally differently when I heard the way she talked privately,” he said. “It isn’t pleasant.
“In public she’s nice, but if you see her personally you see the real person come out of her. The mother’s like that too. The whole family, they put up an act.”
