After a super brief appearance in rehab and continued rumors and rumblings of a divorce and such, Odom is now breaking his silence on Twitter (he’s been off Twitter for at least three months; so it’s kind of surprising) and recently took the time to share some of his candid thoughts:
“Seeing the snakes,” Odom tweeted last night.
However, a lot of fans didn’t understand his cryptic tweet; so he decided to elaborate, placing much of the blame on not only himself, but his apparently less-than-stellar father too:
“Won’t continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of shit. He wasn’t there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me.
“For the first time since they left, came a blessing of a FAMILY that I married into. FAMILY. That man wasn’t even invited to my wedding. He has never met my mother in law and some of my other family. How can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own ‘son.’
“He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me. He disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return. They are the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time. Only person 2 blame is myself. Say what you want about me but leave the ones who have done nothing but protect and love me out of this! This goes to out to everyone!”
(You can view that particularly lengthy tweet here).
In his last tweet, Odom tweeted about wife Khloe Kardhashian, saying that that “wifey is real”, among other things:
This marks the first time Odom has said anything about his numerous personal and legal woes since they began some months ago.
Regardless of all this, kudos to Odom (mostly) owning up to his actions. Here’s to hoping that Odom gets his life together and his marriage with Khloe doesn’t crumble because of all of this. Even the best of relationships go through some fairly turbulent times.
Good luck, Odom.
