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."

Tell the truth about your so called war stories Joe. And all you do is beg from your son. You use him just like his so called friends.

Want to get rid of the Kardashian news ? This is how you do it and I promise it will work but everyone has to do it together.. When you see a story/post about the Kardashians, DON"T click on it, DON'T read it and DON'T comment on it. BECAUSE - Here is how internet journalism works, every time someone reads their article it gets a "page view" and "comment #", it does NOT matter if the comments are bad ! Each comment represents ONE person who is reading about them. Journalists are like children in a since that even bad attention, is STILL ATTENTION ! They don't look at something they wrote and say "Look my article got 500 BAD comments!" They say "Look my article got 500 comments !" I don't care if they hate it, they STILL READ IT and thats all that matters !! So all you people writing saying sh*t like "Who Cares", Well thats 1 page view and comment, thank you..You people hating them and being so sick of hearing about them, are actually HELPING KEEP them HERE !!! If your truely want them gone then you will just STOP giving them the page views cause THAT is how they will see you are really done reading about this family. Think people, if they wrote something and NO ONE read it, do you think they would keep writing about them ?? NO THEY WOULDN'T. MORE than half of you won't take this advice because you just want somewhere to put your hate. You want somewhere to say nasty **** and not be accountable.. and thats fine, if thats what keeps you from being cruel to people in "real life" do it..but KNOW, YOU ARE THE REASON THEY KEEP WRITING ABOUT THEM. Keep giving page views to **** you don't care about...
