Lamar Odom thinks the Kardashians are his only family

(Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates yesterday. Long story short: If a restaurant offers $14 steak as a special, there’s probably a reason it’s so cheap. Now that I’ve stopped puking, let’s go back to mocking the rich and famous.)

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian

Yesterday, Lamar Odom‘s father decided to take a shot at the Kardashians, blaming them for Lamar’s downfall. Admittedly, I blame the Kardashians for a lot — global warming, lost socks in my laundry, man’s inhumanity to man — but I don’t think we can pin this one on the Kardashians. Lamar doesn’t seem to think so either, and has publicly blasted his father, saying the Kardashians are his only family now. TMZ reports…

“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.” By “dark time” he could mean separation from Khloe, but as we’ve been telling you … Lamar is deep in the grips of drug addiction — so it could also be his first public admission of that battle. Lamar added … his father’s “demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me.” As for his current struggles — addiction, marriage, basketball career — Lamar says, “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!”

Good for him for taking responsibility for his actions, but holy hell. The Kardashians are his only family. That might be one of the most legitimately depressing things I’ve ever heard. You might as well have held a press conference to tell the world you’ve forgotten how to love. I’m pretty sure that even the real Kardashians wish they weren’t Kardashians.
