Okay, this is getting aggravating. I was definitely not put on this earth to defend the K Klan but here I am, yet again, telling people to give the Kardashian family a fucking break when it comes to Lamar Odom.
For the unaware – AKA anyone who has no means of accessing the internet – TMZ broke a story on Tuesday about Odom being extremely drunk on Monday on a Delta redeye to NYC. Per TMZ …
Two passengers in first class tell TMZ, Lamar went to 4B and sat down, but as the plane was about to pull back he bolted for the front, threw up in the galley and then walked in the bathroom and with the door open threw up again. When he came out of the bathroom, we’re told he had vomit on his clothes.
Odom was shortly thereafter taken off the flight, but still managed to make it to NYC by Tuesday night.
Sadly, it seems that Odom, who was hospitalized following a life-threatening overdose in 2015, has suffered a relapse. In the meantime, Lamar’s wife Khloe, who re-filed for divorce from the athlete in May, has come in for vitriol on Twitter. Apparently folks think it’s unseemly for her to be dating musician Trey Songz given Odom’s current condition…
@khloekardashian instead of running the streets with Mr.!steal your girl you need to be helping your HUSBAND

Khloe responded by telling @Tamantha_5 to “stay in her lane” which seemed to provoke a lot of @whatevers to pile on.
Apparently @Tamantha_5 and her @pals don’t understand addiction. Say what you will about the K Klan, but they really have done everything they can when it comes to Lamar. If you won’t take it from Khloe, take it from an addict: there is nothing that can be done to help Lamar until he decides to help himself. And even then, it’s tough.
What is currently happening with Odom is tragic, but make no mistake: Khloe is a victim of that tragedy not the cause.
