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."

This guy is trash! TMZ and anyone else that gives him the time of day to voice his opinion is also trash.

Not even close to looking like a junkie til he starts pop-locking on the corner street in 110 degree weather.

He's ****ting himself now. Who will pay his rent and give him allowance every month? He had it made and bit the hand that fed him. Shame on him.

Not sure I'd believe this after hearing he also thinks his son is white.

First, why is this senior citizen wearing earrings on both ears?

Second, there needs to be an unspoken agreement to not interview attention seeking family , friends and acquaintances of celebrities.
