For the first time since his DUI arrest, Lamar Odom is opening up about his recent troubles.

The NBA star and husband to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star Khloe Kardashian refuted comments his estranged father made in the media.

Joe Odom spoke to Radar Online, blaming the Kardashians for his problems and saying “they brought him down” and that his best bet is to divorce Khloe and “get his life back together.”

In response, via an open letter posted on Twitter, Lamar slammed his father for not being around for his life and calling the Kardashians his real family.

“[My father is] disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return,” he wrote. “They are the ONLY ones that have been consistently 4 me during this dark time. Only person 2 blame is myself.”

This is the first public admission from Lamar since rumors began of his alleged drug use, and though he doesn’t outright explain his “dark time,” he appears to be taking responsibility.

Do you think this is the right step for Lamar? Could this be an effort to help his relationship with Khloe? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
