Lamar Odom and may be staying mum regarding his rocky relationship with wife Khloe Kardashian, but his father, Joe, is having no trouble expressing his less-than-warm feelings about the couple’s recent marital strife, according to British tabloid heat.
Joe, a former addict himself, first spoke to People when reports of his son’s marital drama hit the press, and has now reportedly given an exclusive interview to the UK magazine roundly bashing his son’s new family.
“They brought him down,” Joe says of the Kardashians’ negative influence on his son. “He would be better off without them. I think the best thing for him would be to have a clean break and divorce Khloe.”
While Khloe may be the main target of Joe’s ire, he insists that all of the Kardashian women are reprehensible, with Kris Jenner leading the bunch. “She’s been talking trash about my son, saying he’s on drugs and stuff like that. I don’t think she cares about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money.”
Joe adds, “I wish he had never got married to Khloe. She’s controlling. Those Kardashian women all are. In public she’s nice, but if you see her personally you see the real person.”
Joe says that the Kardashians are in no position to judge his son’s behavior, especially after they rode daughter Kim’s sex tape coattails to fame.
“I heard Kim said they don’t have crackheads in their family...Look at where she came from. We don’t want porno stars in our family.”
While it remains unclear if Joe’s interview is 100 percent legit, it seems like now’s a good time for Bruce, Scott, and Kanye to start fetching some ice packs for those burns.
