Joe Odom, Army vet and wife Cecilia claim that the former NBA star and their son Lamar Odom had paying his $4,000 rent for 10 years until Khloe Kardashian cut off their financial help.
Khloé didn’t even have the guts to tell me herself that my rent wasn’t going to be paid anymore,” Joe Odom, 62, said. “She got the guys who handle Lamar’s money to call me and they said the rent wouldn’t be paid, I gotta move and my phone was going to get cut off.
She disrespected me. She decided to kick me out of my home when Lamar was in hospital in Nevada
I just wish I could be at his side in LA to support him, but Khloé doesn’t want me there.
Joe is broken up and claims that Kardashian has taken over Lamar’s finances after a drug-fuelled night in a Nevada brothel left him nearly dead last year. He feels that she is trying to stop them from communicating.
Whenever I call him, she answers. She must be checking his texts, too. I can’t always get through to him anymore. She may be Lamar’s wife, but I’m his father. She shouldn’t have cut me out of his life like she has.
Lamar promised that he would sort it out when his father finally got through to him last week but nothing has changed yet and he remains in dire financial straits.
He feels that his son is back on a slippery slope after he was spotted drinking with friends recently even though he attends daily rehab at a medical center in LA and is still recovering from severe kidney damage. Joe cannot work because of PTSD and pneumonia.
