Lamar Odom's Dad

My Son DOESN'T Have a Drug Problem

Lamar Odom
's father tells TMZ he believes his son is "clean" and does NOT have a drug problem.

Joe Odom just told us he simply doesn't buy the story TMZ broke ... that Lamar is deep in the world of drug abuse and specifically crack. 

A regretful Joe says he's sorry he lashed out at the Kardashians, reportedly saying Lamar would be better off without them.  Joe tells us he believes the Kardashians are a "wonderful family," even though he reportedly had said "They don't give a f**k about my son."

Joe says what set him off was a segment on "The Wendy Williams Show" in which someone trashed him as a heroin addict.  He says he's been clean for 30 years and adds, "Nobody's perfect."

Wow ...    

We have another Milo. "It is everyone else' fault. My child can do no wrong. Most importantly, I am father of the year". None of which is true.

That reminds me of the old Sam Kinison joke:

Sam's Friend: I'm going to go to drug rehab. I think I've got a problem.
Sam: How much does rehab cost?
Sam's Friend: $11,000 a week.
Sam: If you can get your hands on $11,000 a week, you don't have a problem.

You come to TMZ, and there's about 6 stories in a row about the K-clan--what's up? Did Pimp Mama up the monthly paycheck? She's probably got too much time on her hands since her "Kris" show was cancelled--which, by the way, TMZ--you haven't mentioned that fact. Everything is about Lamar's drug problem. Poor guy--the more he tries to get away, the more you go after him. TMZ--you also haven't mentioned that Rob's sock line is in the toilet and he has been in hiding as long as Kim has; that Pimp Mama and Bruce can't stand the sight of each other, that Lamar's father called PMK an "evil bitch"; and how about mentioning Kanye's Messiah complex? That's pure entertainment right there!

Is it that he doesn't know or is it that he doesn't care that he looks like a complete douche with that hat on sideways? It's dorky enough on kids, but on old men it just looks like they are senile and don't know any better. Can't take him seriously he's protecting his son and the money he gets.

Told y'all the kardashians have major influence. Lamar obviously wants to be in their family and want to keep things good between him and the kardashians and his dad saying negative things about the kardashians is only making things worse for Lamar so he responds the way he do and tells his dad like take back what you said so we can make things look better but people with a brain can see the truth.
