Lamar Odom's Dad

I'm NOT Dying,

'Everything Is Good Now'

2/24/2012 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0224_lamar_odom_father_vid
Lamar Odom's father says he's NOT gravely ill ... and was only suffering from a stomach virus earlier this week ... but he's grateful that his famous son would skip an NBA game to be by his side.

Joe Odom was out in L.A. yesterday and explained, "[Wednesday] night [Lamar] stayed with me all night ... just kickin' it and whatnot ... but everything is good now I feel a lot better."

The Mavs were scheduled to play the Lakers that night (L.O.'s former team), but Lamar was excused for what the team called "a family matter."

Lamar's had a pretty tumultuous relationship with his dad -- the two were estranged for years due to Joe's heroin addiction.

Seems the two are on pretty good terms at the moment.

Perhaps Lamar didn't want to face his old team.....His Dad always looks like he is dying because he is gaunt from heroin addiction. I dislike everything Kardashian except Lamar Odom

Lamar wanted to keep his distance from his father.But Kontrolling Khloe thought it would make for good t.v ratings.
Like she would really hang out with a heroin addict, unless there was some money to be made.When will Lamar catch on?

Man up Lamar--you didn't want to face your old team-mates and us LA fans.. Get over the fact, your history with us and fans don't respect you anymore since you want to be a reality star with trashy freakie KKK clan.. Plus the LAKER organization was clear with you, their DONE with the extra baggage you brought to their camp, it was NONSENSE on your part!!!

Don't you realize how silly you look and displaying your private life for everyone to watch every Sunday night.?>?< Wake up Lamar and quit acting like a sissy (i think U & Rob are in the closet lover's.. yuk!)

Why would it be reported Lamar's father was GRAVELY ILL when he was not as reported soon after? This stinks to high heaven. You don't report people as being gravely ill just to not show up for work. I hope this is not a ploy to get people to watch his snoozefest of a show with Khloe. Their ratings are low.

we saw how Lamar was kinda blowing off his dad wouldnt buy him some new shoes or chinnese take out.
Now beacuse they need footage for their dying show they
play up Joes stomace ace to a life and death matter.
All in the name of the show and a golden chance for them to grab at a littel good PR forAmericas most hated KKK clan.
This goes to show the Lam ar and khole are dep into the Reality show disease where they no longer know the diffrence between reality and what morons do.
Kholes Marrige is DOOMed. Every couple who do reality tv end up batt **** carzy and break up.
That new chick on orage county house wives is about to catch the disease watch her perfect life fall into the dumpster. we well have to watch Lamar cry abouthis daddy on the TV show they porbaly turn it into a two part special.
Now lamar realsise Joe isnt gonna be there for him to kick around forever and mybe Joe well at least get the chinnnes take out he craves and Khole well haul her fat ass in her kitchen and make him some home made cookies.
No more store bought cookies for Joe he desrves the best.
Plus they need to kick him down for him provieding some fake dram for thier warshed up show.Mybe lamar well even take joe to the strip club withim so he can get anaked lap dance while lamr goes int he VIP room for a B.J.
A show about JOe would be alot more intresting than khole over exposed trashcan. Go Joe.Can we watch you shoot up?
