Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband has been struggling to maintain his sobriety since he left rehab and a source close to the 37-year-old basketball star told Radar that family fights are harming his efforts.
His baby mama, Liza Morales, gave a brutal interview where she spoke about Odom’s drug issues back in 2008.
“There was a lot of denial,” she told People magazine in early June, and blamed the death of their infant son for his drug use.
“When it comes to an addict, you cannot force them to get help, you cannot want it more than them.”
The interview enraged Odom, and the source told Radar that he lashed out at Morales.
“Lamar thinks Liza uses their children as a tool against him. It makes him so angry. She hasn’t worked a day in her damn life but can exploit their family for money.”
During the same interview, his daughter Destiny Odom said that she is not convinced her father will remain sober.
“I’ve had conversations with him just letting him know that I want him to get help,” she told People magazine. “But at the end of the day he’s a grown man and you have to want it for yourself.”
Odom was more sympathetic toward his daughter.
“Lamar loves his kids. He wants to be sober for them. He is working really hard at it all the time,” the source told Radar.
“But he doesn’t understand why Liza would put all of this out there when he gives her everything she asks for and more.”
