Lamar Odom’s dad was booted from his LA home and forced to move back to Brooklyn after Khloé Kardashian refused to keep paying his rent, he tells The NY Post.
“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.”The former NBA star had paid his disabled father’s $4,000 rent for 10 years when Kardashian kicked the Army vet and his wife, Cecelia, 59, to the curb last November.
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,” the broken-up father said.The glum dad believes Kardashian is “smothering” Lamar and attempting to cut off their communication.
“Whenever I call him, she answers. She must be checking his texts, too. I can’t always get through to him anymore,” he said.Last week, Joe was finally able to get through to Lamar, who said he would “sort it out,” but nothing has changed, he says.
“She may be Lamar’s wife, but I’m his father. She shouldn’t have cut me out of his life like she has.”
