Joe’s gotta go!
Joe Odom, the father of Lamar Odom, has been booted from his home in Los Angeles after Khloé Kardashian refused to keep paying his rent.
Joe told Page Six:
Khloé didn’t even have the guts to tell me herself that my rent wasn’t going to be paid anymore. 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….She disrespected me. She decided to kick me out of my home when Lamar was in hospital in Nevada.
Kardashian had taken over Lamar’s finances following his near overdose at a brothel in Nevada. For the last ten years, Lamar Odom had paid his father’s $4,000-per-month rent.
Joe, 62, said he had to move back to Brooklyn and that Kardashian has been keeping him from getting in contact with his son:
I just wish I could be at his side in LA to support him, but Khloé doesn’t want me there….Whenever I call him, she answers. She must be checking his texts, too. I can’t always get through to him anymore. She may be Lamar’s wife, but I’m his father. She shouldn’t have cut me out of his life like she has.
Joe is a veteran and says that he’s unable to work due to PTSD, and is now “barely scraping by.”
