Lamar Odom, 33, has been in the tabloids lately, with magazine headlines reading, "Lamar and His Dark Time" with pictures of him and his wife, reality star, Khloe Kardashian plastered on them. But what's all this fuss about? What is this "dark time" that has been taking over the professional basketball players life?
It seems that the former Clippers player who's kept very silent about his alleged drug use problem, took to Twitter on Tuesday to fire back at the person that's been seemingly causing Odom such stress...his father.
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 (cont) http://t.co/ACFVHjkevg

The entire post reads as follows:
"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 shit. 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. 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!"
Odom tweeted this out on Twitlonger yesterday.
It seems it was a pretty angry tweet, but Odom's father said some pretty nasty things in his interview with Radaronline.
“They don’t give a f*ck about my son. It’s more about the damage they do to the Kardashian brand. They brought him down. He’d be better off without them. Let him go, get his life together," said his father, Joe Odom.
Odom received a DUI last month.
