Lamar Odom's Dad Claims His Son Is Going to Stop Paying His Rent

Say What!? 21

lamar odomLet's take a break from speculating about what's going on between Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. What's going on between Lamar Odom and his father? A few days ago Lamar slammed his father, Joe, for saying the Kardashians were the source of all his problems. Now Joe Odom tells TMZ Lamar is threatening to stop paying his father's rent. Supposedly Lamar has been paying $$2,900 a month for his dad's housing for the past four years, and he's threatening to cut him off. Would he really do that, though?

Joe Odom says he'll be out on the street if Lamar really does stop paying his rent. I can imagine how the father and son might have a falling out, and that Lamar may have said a few things in a heated moment. Even without saying anything, Joe might be feeling a little vulnerable right now. But then why was he running his mouth off earlier this week, then? Maybe if your son is paying your rent you should try not to make his life more difficult.

Still, I don't believe Lamar would really cut off his dad. Maybe Lamar is frustrated, but he's not cruel... right? Lamar may be feeling out of control and not quite himself lately, though. I hope Joe is wrong.

Do you think Lamar would really stop paying his dad's rent?

You don't go biting the hand that feeds you. He's old enough for social security anyway.

Since when is it cruel to stop allowing your grown parent to freeload??? That is not cruel! Lamars father has never been a father to him or even been there for him. He is only there to get everything he can from Lamar. I say good for Lamar if he does stop paying his rent!

Why should he pay his father's rent, the man didn't do anything but donate his sperm... And 2900 is alot of money if he wants a place to live he can get a job like the rest of us... Lamar doesn't owe him anything

Wowzers! 22,000 a month? That's almost as much as my fiance and I live on per year! (I've pulled in a whole romping 5, 940 so far this year, due to a back injury I am having surgery for this Frid.) Why does anyone need to live in housing that costs that much per month? Well, with the exception of medically assisted, nursing home, or maybe hospice care. Oherwise, that's crazy...

Oh, lol, I read that wrong, apparently, it is 2,900 a month, I have NO clue why I thought it said 22,000 LOL.

As Gilda Radner used to say on Saturday Night Live... "Never mind"

This man didn't pay Lamar's rent when he was a child so no way does he owe that gold digging, trash talking old man any money.

He probably won't stop paying it, although he should stop.

Now that Lamar is famous and wealthy, he wants to be a dad to him.  Why?  So Lamar can pay his rent and buy him food.  If he loved his son, he wouldn't ask for or expect anything.  He was a dead beat dad and now he just wants to ride the coat tail of Lamar's success.  His dad is a leach, and poor Lamar is being made to look like the bad guy by the media.  Sensationalism sells and the media is happy to do this even at the expense of a hurt and abandoned child. The media is just as bad as his dad, both of them are just using Lamar.

This story makes me livid. This man "Joe" was not around for Lamar when he was growing up so he did not assist in any way to lamars success, yet expects a free ride???? Four years he has had no rent in that time he couldn't figure sh*t out? Give me a break stop playing the feel sorry for me card and stop talking about your son who you obviously have no relationship with but you expect him to psy for your lifestyle? How old are you?

SO?? Maybe Lamar is trying to get read of all the dead weight in his life. His dad is one of them apparently. Sometimes you have to cut ties with the people who bring you down. Even if it is a parent. Trust me...
