Michael Buckner

Don’t bash my in laws, says Lamar Odom. reports that the troubled NBA player and husband of reality star Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to speak out against his father Joe, who blamed the Kardashians for his son’s problems in an interview.

"He wasn’t there 2 raise me," Odom, 33, wrote on his Twitter page. "That man wasn’t even invited to my wedding. He has never met my mother in law and some of my other family.

Odom, who is not signed to a team at the moment, has been dogged by reports of infidelity, drug abuse and marital problems in recent weeks.
