It's been a rough couple of months in the limelight for Lamar Odom, and on Tuesday, Sept. 24, Khloe Kardashian's husband finally spoke up following numerous headlines regarding his recent DUI, his alleged drug addiction and his marriage.
The NBA pro decided to set the record straight via Twitter after Radar Online reported that his father Joe blames the Kardashian family for his son's reported drug use. His father told the website, "Someone's got to speak out, I've got to do something about this. It's simple. They brought him down. He would be better off without them. Let him go and get his life together. 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."
Odom, 33, did not take lightly to his father attacking his wife, 29, and refuted the claims in a lengthy tweet, writing: "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!"

Khloe didn't react to her husband's message, but she did reiterate a quote tweeted out from her younger sister Kylie Jenner that read: "That's the problem with being the strong one. No one offers you a hand. -m.t."
What do you think of Odom's recent comments?
