It looks like Kris Jenner isn't the only parents pushing for a Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom divorce.
In an explosive, rambling, revealing interview with Radar Online, Lamar Odom's father, Joe, positively tears into the Kardashians, blaming the family for his son's recent woes and making it clear:
He wants Lamar to get as far away from Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian as possible.
"They brought him down," says the former post office worker. "He would be better off without them… I think the best thing for him would be to have a clean break, divorce Khloe and as a single man try and get his life back together.”
Joe believes Kris has been misleading the public about Odom's alleged drug use.
“The mother has been talking a lot of trash about my son, saying he’s on drugs and stuff like that. She’s got something against my son, something against my family. Kris Jenner is very negative. She’s an evil b-tch. She doesn’t care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money.”
Speaking from his home in Marina Del Rey, California, Joe said Odom never did hard drugs in the past (NOTE: he has been suspended twice under the NBA anti-drug policy) and says the Kardashians have been a bad "influence" on Lamar.
“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."
Most signs do indicate that Odom and Kardashian will split, but a new report says Khloe is waiting until her reality show is finishing filming before making any final decisions.
Joe also slammed the Kim Kardashian sex tape ("We don't want porno stars in our family.") and believes Odom would still be a "top player" in the NBA if not for marrying Khloe.
“The reality show was a curse because it put too much of his business in the limelight. That show messed him up because to me his basketball should come first. It took a lot out of him to perform for his job and in that show... I think he was taking sleeping pills and it slows you down to perform, especially in basketball.”
Joe himself was an addict for many years and his advice comes from a place of pain and knowledge, he says.
“I love my son dearly, but my advice to him would be: Leave the drugs alone. If he is abusing drugs, he’s got to stay straight and get his life together. Go into rehab. If it is crack he is taking, he’s got to get help."
UPDATE: Lamar has responded to his father's claims and did not have good things to say about the man, while coming to the defense of his in-laws.
The NBA star also acknowledged his "ongoing" tough time.
