Lamar Odom’s daughter, Destiny, slammed her father’s marriage to ex-wife Khloe Kardashian in a recent interview.

In a feature titled “Surviving a Father’s Addiction: Lamar Odom’s Family Speaks Out,” the 17-year-old tells People that a lot changed when the former NBA baller linked up with the reality star. “Things changed when my dad married Khloe. Things were a lot more public,” she said of the couple’s union, which lasted from 2009 to 2016.

“When your dad’s an NBA player that’s already enough, but when he’s marrying a reality TV star, things are so public and you don’t have a private life anymore,” Destiny confessed, recalling watching “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” as a child. “It was crazy that my dad was getting married to this woman that I used to watch religiously. It was such a whirlwind, really.”

According to the teen, the drama extended to her personal life. “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,” she said.

When the Good American designer resurfaced to help Odom recover after his 2016 overdose, “a lot of people in our circle were confused,” she told People. “Their relationship is very toxic.”

In spite of it all, Destiny, an aspiring fashion student, admitted that her famous father, whom she last saw a couple of months ago, is much more open and apologetic these days. “He’s able to see the pain he’s caused,” she said. “I’ve had conversations with him just letting him know that I want him to get help. But at the end of the day, he’s a grown man and you have to want it for yourself.”

    Blame your crackhead “father” and not Khloe for his actions! Don’t give him a pass and put your hurt on someone else. Call a spade a spade!

    he is still a addict and that is the sad part ,we all know no amount of preaching or praying will release a crackhead , they are very indenial people , families suffor over crack addiction khloe is lucky she distance herself from him . i hear the daughter blaming khloe thats a lie , lamar was on drugs when he met her , and he bounced back and forth during the marriage destroying the union .khloe mother and therapist suggested she find a way to get away from lamar , ,he was a public nusiance his daugher is in denial ..the crackhead family always blame the woman in the crackhead mans life . classic ….
    im glad khloe took the intiative to move on that alone is hard .. she loved this crackhead and now she understand why she had to move forward .. she seem happiest .. lamar daughter cant see the truth aobut her own daddy . so blind she decided to blame the victim . . she her self is a victim . and that fool still suckin on a pipe even after being on life support smh

    Ceecee, Chuck, and nosey you all must don’t have fathers. This young woman is brave and has a lot more talent than any of the Kardashian’s. Don’t bash her because she wants the best for her father. Are you all stupid or something?

    Only the man in the mirror is responsible for himself, NOT OTHERS!!! Dad or no dad,
