Lamar Odom’s Daughter, Destiny, Opens Up for the First Time About Her Father’s Drug Use and Strained Relationship with Khloe

Destiny is the only daughter of former Lakers player and Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom. Since his near death experience in October 2015, which left him unconscious after a drink and drug binge in a Las Vegas brothel, this is the first time Lamar’s daughter Destiny is speaking about her father’s struggle with drug addiction and his ‘toxic’ relationship with ex-wife Khloe Kardashian.

In a feature, Destiny told People that “It was a school night when I found out. We all thought that he was, that this was it for him and he was going to pass away. But, life is so crazy.” Destiny who never witnessed her do drugs, revealed she was aware of his addiction which were evident “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.”

She finally gave her father an ultimatum, saying, “Pops, you get help or I won’t talk to you.”
‘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.”

Speaking on her relationship with Khloe who rushed to be by Lamar’s bedside and helped him throughout his recover, the teenager revealed their relationship was strained from the start after Lamar embarked on his whirlwind romance with the KUWTK star in 2009.

She told People, “the bullying started when he married Khloe. 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.” Khloe refiled for divorce in May 2016 and it was finalized in December the same year.

Destiny admits she still hasn’t seen her father in three months even though he’s fully recovered.

Lamar’s ex-wife Liza Morales who also shares a 14-year-old son with the fallen star, gives an insight into how her ex-husband’s drug problem started in the late 90s in the early years of his career. She tells People, “you’re 19, 20, years old and you start making all this money. There’s a lot of temptations.”

The father-of-two drug use got out of control when the couple lost their son Jayden to sudden infant death syndrome in 2006, eventually leading to the couple splitting up.
