It’s not news to anyone that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are having relationship struggles. While Khloe continues to wear her ring and the two attended a Kanye West concert together last month, all signs (including the preview for Season 9 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians) point to an imminent split. However, it turns out that’s not the whole reason why Lamar was absent from the Kardashian-Jenner Turkey Day festivities.
According to E! News, Lamar wanted to spend the holiday with his dad, Joe. Unfortunately, after some remarks Joe made to a tabloid a few months ago, it sounds like he’s persona non grata at Kasa Kardashian. “Kris isn’t over what Joe said about her and the rest of her family,” a source tells Hollywood Life.
Apparently, Lamar tried to help the two sides of his family mend fences, but to no avail, so he spent the day with “his dad and close friends.” We’re glad Lamar was at least able to bury the hatchet with his dad. He wasn’t too happy with him either when his remarks about Khloe and the rest of her klan hit the newsstand.
Thanksgiving dinner isn’t the only Kardashian family tradition Lamar skipped this year. He is also AWOL from the family Kristmas Kard — though, do be fair, so are Rob Kardashian, Kanye, Scott Disick, and North West, none of whom has been kicked out of the family yet as far as we’ve heard!
