LAMAR ODOM took to Twitter yesterday to blast his dad JOE for “disrespecting” and publicly criticizing the KARDASHIANS in a recent interview.

He may be estranged from his wife Khloe (and possibly from the rest of the Kardashian Klan) following the revelation of his longstanding cocaine addiction, but that did not stop the NBA star from sticking up for them after his own dad, Joe Odom, ripped the Kardashian family and blamed them for his drug abuse in a new interview.

Lamar, who recently got charged with a DUI on top of all his other troubles, finally broke his silence on Tuesday—but not to address his marriage drama, or the speculation surrounding his cocaine problem. Instead, he took to Twitter to respond to his father’s scathing remarks about the Kardashians, which include calling Kris Jenner an “evil bitch,” saying that their reality show was a ”curse,” and wishing that his son had never married Khloe.

He wrote:

“Won’t continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of s**t. He wasn’t there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me. For the first time since they left, came a blessing of a FAMILY that I married into. FAMILY. That man wasn’t even invited to my wedding. He has never met my mother in law and some of my other family. How can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own “son”. He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me.“

The basketball star continued:

“[He’s] 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. 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! This goes to out to everyone!”
