Lamar’s father: He’s clean

Lamar Odom's dad says son is not a drug addict and has apologised to the Kardashian family.

Joe Odom spoke to TMZ and told them he doesn't believe the stories that his son is allegedly a crack cocaine addict or has problems with Oxycontin and Ambien.

"I don't believe the things that people are saying about him. To me my son is clean, he does right, he works out.

"He's about basketball, he's about he's job. I hear people talk about him like that, I get frustrated and upset," Joe told TMZ.

An on-going battle of words has ensued between Lamar and his dad after Joe suggested that his son's supposed issues are down to the family he married in to. The sportsman wed Khloé Kardashian four years ago.

But he's now changed his opinion and claimed the Kardashians are getting a bad rap, and apologised for his earlier outburst.

"I got upset about what Diana Madison said about me on The Wendy Williams Show, that I was a heroin addict and that he [Lamar] was abusing crack and people started laughing about that situation. I've been clean 30 years," he said.

But Lamar isn't happy with his father's outburst.

In retaliation Lamar hit back on Twitter with his own opinion of the situation.

"He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me. He 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! (sic)" fumed Lamar.
