Lamar Odom’s Daughter Destiny Says Dad’s Marriage To Khloe Kardashian Was “Toxic”


This isn’t going to go over well.

Lamar Odom’s daughter Destiny talked all about her dad’s high profile relationship with Khloe Kardashian, his overdose, and his recovery from addiction in a new PEOPLE/Entertainment Weekly (PEN) feature, Surviving A Father’s Addiction: Lamar Odom’s Family Speaks Out, and it sounds like she wasn’t her former stepmom’s biggest fan.

“Things changed when my dad married Khloe. Things were a lot more public. When your dad’s an NBA player that’s already enough, but when he’s marrying a reality TV star, things are so public and you don’t have a private life anymore. It was crazy that my dad was getting married to this woman that I used to watch religiously. It was such a whirlwind, really,” she explained.

“There were regular snide comments at school. And when his addiction became public, then it became a social media thing. Even people that I thought were my friends were saying stuff on social media. It was humiliating,” she added.

When the Revenge Body star rushed to the athlete’s aid after his overdose in a Las Vegas brothel, “a lot of people in our circle were confused. Their relationship is very toxic,” the 17-year-old revealed.

“I tried for my dad. I wouldn’t say it was a matter of my dad loving Khloe more than me. I think that my dad has an addictive personality, so he was addicted to the attention he got with Khloe more than me. It was a very toxic relationship,” she said.

The former Laker is now sober after going to rehab, but his eldest child acknowledges that every day is a new struggle.

“When he’s not texting me, not calling me, I know he’s using. But all I can do is let him know that I love him and that I’m here for him. They can love you, they would do anything for you, but at the end of the day, there’s a chemical dependency on drugs. You can’t force an addict to get better; they have to want it for themselves,” she concluded.

Nobody should be blaming Khloe for Lamar’s own bad decisions!
