Lamar Odom's daughter Destiny Odom says she struggled to make peace with Khloé Kardashian after she and Odom married in 2009. Destiny, pictured above with brother, Lamar Jr. and Odom, said her father and Khloé had a "toxic relationship".

“I feel like we tried,” Destiny, 18, told People magazine of her attempts to like Khloé. “I tried for my dad. I wouldn’t say it was a matter of my dad loving Khloé more than me. I think that my dad has an addictive personality, so he was addicted to the attention he got with Khloé more than me. It was a very toxic relationship."

Destiny said she was taunted in school when her father's romance with Khloé went public.

“The bullying started when he married Khloé,” she said. “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."

Destiny said her father's addictions caused him to miss important milestones in her life such as her graduation from high school.

“When you see everyone with their mom and dad, it’s like, ‘I wish I could have these moments with my dad here,'" she said.

After Odom recovered from his near-death experience at a Las Vegas brothel in 2015, Destiny participated in a family intervention to force him into drug rehab.

“I basically gave him the ultimatum that it was rehab or me not speaking to him anymore,” Destiny said. “I think that hit him really hard.”

Although they've never been close, Destiny said her relationship with her father is improving. She said they exchange text messages but they haven't seen each other in three months.

“Two years ago he was completely in denial about using drugs,” she said. “Now he’s a lot more open, and he’s a lot more apologetic. I feel like we’re trying to get our communication going, but it’s definitely one step at a time.”

    Addiction affects so much more than just the abuser. I hope this young lady can find peace with her father.

  • dontgetblocked

    Lamar has got to do better.

  • Miany

    I feel weird that she is talking to the media about this. Nevertheless, I hope they can mend their relationship and forge the bond that they both deserve.

  • Coy little wink

    She didn't touch on it but it had to hurt to see her dad just up and marry another woman out the clear blue...

  • Faux Gibbler

    Them Kardashians only care about a camera catching them in action.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Remember when that Brothel owner was telling all of Lamar's business?

  • Dahl

    Was this girl a priority to her father for the first 9 years of her life? If so I totally understand her hurt and end here...

    ...if not, then why is she shocked that he continued his selfish ways and ignored her for the sake of his new wife and fame?

  • Staci Elle

    No do tell...

  • Ebony Starr

    The sad part is that she probably saw more of him when he was married to Khloe.

  • A-way29

    They are a bunch of witches who feed off male energy. The Black Male Energy. I'm surprised that "our" sites continue to place them on "our" platforms.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    I don't like the Kardashians as much as the next, but she needs to put some accountability on her glass d*** loving a$$$ father! Sheesh. But, yeah everyone just wants to hate on those build~a~bodies, I know. That's all got.

  • Harley

    Kartrashians are WITCHES

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Khloe toxic? In other news: water is wet... Khloe sure knew how to play the victim in that relationship, though, when the true victims were his kids and those that actually cared about him..

  • Harley

    So true. But that is what that family does. Play Victims when the conversation changes and people are not praising them. Typical white woman antics

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Man, ain't no little girl gonna like the "new evil step mom". There can be only one hen in the house. Period.

  • LibraGirlonly

    May YAH shine a light on you and your family Lamar.

  • IamAllnatural

    His children are so cute. Kids need to stay off social media because it does nothing but lower their self esteem.

  • Renee Bee

    Lil' Miss, please stay in a child's place. And by the way yo deddy Lammy likes drugs and hoes. In that order!

  • Scromes1212

    His dad has been a drug addict since Lamar was a kid. I'm sure that had a huge effect on him becoming a addict.

  • Faithz

    Hopefully Lamar get his life and drug
    use under control, He has beautiful
    children and family who loves him.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I feel bad for her. That girl is really damaged. Kids almost always suffer mental and emotional damage when their parents become addicted to drugs. It would probably do her some good to get some professional therapy.

  • Junkanoo

    Of course she's toxic Khole isnt BPA free

  • growingviolet

    Lamar is trash. That's why he got with Khloe. Like seeks like. I do feel sorry for his kids. To see your parent overdoes and have to be put into a coma like that has to be horrible.

  • Ny MaGee

    Is that you Khloe?

  • growingviolet

    The only color these sites care about is green. They don't care about black people. Many of them aren't even black owned. I think if we all start to boycott these posts and not comment on them they will stop posting them.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    He was with this child's mama for YEARS! Then bloop, here comes the succubus.

  • A-way29

    I agree. You're spot on

  • pynkrose407

    Her father demons are his own and I don't get why everyone blame the Kardashian's for these men problem, they are just like any other women and there are plenty women that are buying body parts and doing if not some or more than them, so he needs to deal with his own demons and his daughter needs to deal or stand by her dad, if you have not seen in three months how concerned really are you for him??


    She's 18, I believe she has a right to say something about her father.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Warlocks and Coven Officers that bake cookies, collect dues, recruit , train , vacation , with other witches.

  • thaye

    Te he he

  • Jay

    He's an attention seeker. I saw him on Judge Alex last week. He's dating another one of his "workers" who is like 19 years old.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I think she was probably protecting herself. She had opened communication with him but she is taking it slow . He was the adult she just turned 18 so it was his duty to be in her life not the other way around. Her mom probably kept her and her brother shielded as much as possible , but the choices of their father to marry Khloe and then his addiction kept him in the tabloids and on blogs. It had to be distressing and she is voicing it . I definitely like the fact that she holds her dad accountable as well. We all know the Kardshians are all about them and will use anyone and situation to garner attention for themselves. Khloe was done with Lamar until he overdosed. But then that became a storyline . She dumped James Harden and was by Lamar's bedside.... it was all for show . Lamar has always been weak though , easy bait for anyone that wanted to use him.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I hope he can get free.... not from them but from those demons. Lord he is an addict through an through.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I agree she is speaking "truth"! She stayed in child's place and was respectful now as a young adult she is speaking her mind.

  • KIm

    I'm sorry but Lamar does not care about his children. Even after his near death experience he was more concerned about changing his life around and stop using drugs for Khloe so they can get back together..

    His daughter has to call a spade a spade. Yes Khloe may be trash to some people but to partially blame her for Lamar's addiction is not fair...hold her father accountable but his actions.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    The grass ain't always greener on the other side. No sympathy here but for his recovery.

  • Coy little wink

    So foul that's why it was doomed from the start

  • free

    she's 18, what does she know about toxic? anywho, stay out of grown folk business.

  • selectivewords

    Khloe is with Tristan now. So why are they (Lamar's family) still talking about her?

  • country57

    She's not being disrespectful. She spoke about the effect his choices had on her life.

  • country57


  • country57

    I agree!

  • Allihave2say

    I think the daughter was calling a spade and spade when the deck was on the table. She honest and aware that her father has an addictive personality. We all saw that Lamar seemed to sniff behind Khloe because she gave him unwarranted attention "Lamlam", she was a reality tv cracked star and he was chasing more fame than he had with the Lakers and Lamar believed he was loved and had been accepted into a wealthy family dynamic.

    IDK much about his mother but having an addict for a father it sounded like Lamar was seeking love and validation which contributes to the addictive personality. In his 1st family dynamic he was creating a family legacy. In the K-family he was accepted in - key word being ACCEPTED.

  • BlueHousen

    Many folks out there are talking about their childhood issues and the source, so why not her. She names Khloe as the source of hers. She witnessed her father go into a down spiral which was contributed by Khloe and her stifling family, his needs to hang onto his 15 minutes with a waning career, being unable to cope he was no longer a baller, alienation from his children mainly because of him, unable to cope that wife NEEDS an active baller to extend her own fame and fortune. She now gets her needs met with Tristan. Tell me, if Tristan has a career ending injury, do you think for one millisecond that Khloe will stay with him? This kid knows daddy got played. Lamar is dysfunctional and people like him are easy targets for the self promoting K's. It's a sad tale and it's not new. Kids like her are never part of the happy "new" family equation. She was 10 when Khloe came into their lives and we get to hear about her experience now as opposed to 20 years from now as she matures and becomes more introspective about her childhood/family. I hope she grows to be a very strong woman.

  • stav

    He does not look free of drugs in this photo to me.

  • BlueHousen

    There is a pattern with Khloe and she talks about that locomotive running thru her life. That's 10 years and 8 to 18 are crucial years for a girl and her relationship with her dad specifically. Both Khloe and her dad caused problems.

  • BlueHousen

    You are diminishing her experiences because she is young? Think about her as an 8 year old thru the age of 18 having two dysfunctional people in her life. Adults usually have crazy issues because of their childhood experiences. At least she is smart enough to recognize the 'bad' in her young life.

  • RicanLBC

    Nah she isn't he has been trying to work it out with Jordyan his kids mom

  • BlueHousen

    She has the right to express the alienation she felt from him and that Khloe contributed. I don't know why this kid is being dismissed as if her experiences and emotions don't matter.

  • BlueHousen

    Them ladies are the roach motel. Once you go in, you can't get out. Ask Scott, and look at Lammy now, Kanye is stuck, Caitlyn lost her organs.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Right. I remember thinking 'well let's see where this goes' LOL. It just didn't seem right.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    I feel bad for her....Lamar should be ashamed for putting his child through that.

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Maybe he is free from 1 or 2 he was taking but, not all

    Poor Cavs...I blame Khloe

    You gotta be kidding me?

  • free

    the article says they were NEVER close so how does she know the ends and outs of his relationship with khloe? people WANT to blame khloe but the REALITY is she has a drug-addicted daddy, a drug-addicted grandpa, and why wasn't her mama with him either? lamar was out there way before khloe came into the picture.

  • free

    exactly. in her eyes, it's a khloe problem not a daddy problem because she wants her daddy in her life.

  • Nala Shakur

    The first thing i noticed was that gold tooth on the side of his mouth...before i go on my usual conspiracy rant...can someone help me understand what the gold tooth is about? Bc the first thing i thought of was when Chris Brown had one similar to his when he reunited with Rihanna--a high ranking witch. Just caught my eye...could be nothing...not sure how dated this pic is...but dnt get mad @ me

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's easy to blame her, but she didnt make him develop a drug problem. She's had other men in her life, and they didn't become drug addicts like Lamar did. Maybe he should take ownership of his own actions and their consequences.

  • Malcom Flex

    Why blame the white ho social climbing gold digger she knew which weak black male with money and fame to coattail ride pro hoes know which simp tricks to play. Pimp Mama Kris raised those bishes to target weak black males with money, preferably fatherless or with messy weak fathers. Lamar is a simp. His daughter needs therapy.

  • sunni_daze

    And so will the rest of the Cav's fans

  • Roderick2011

    People never blame the ones they love.

  • Malcom Flex

    From what I read the daughter is rightfully sick of her toxic weak dad.

  • Roderick2011

    Ok but she's also blaming her step-mommy.

  • Malcom Flex

    True I did see some righteous anger towards her father as well. Her grandfather on his side is a mess too so clearly he has addiction problems

  • HelloToni

    Destiny is a brave young lady. She is trying to make things work. Seems really mature. It must be sad to see your on TV regularly bit not see hi at all face to face.

  • Quitedeliteful

    So sad when your Daddy is a crack head...She seems well adjusted for a kid whose father would rather spend time with a television family instead of his own flesh and blood. Hopefully they can become closer as time goes on...

  • Guess Who

    Is that a rotten tooth in his mouth? Makes it seem like his breath is he's been gargling with a colostomy bag.

  • tynamight

    Rhianna's a "high ranking witch"? Do tell...

  • tynamight

    I totally believe the daughter when she commented that Lamar's relationship w/ Khloe was toxic. The whole family appears to be toxic!!!

  • Jussjess25

    Wow thats sad.. these men become addicted to fame and women. Sad to hear she lost a connection with her dad.

  • queentomyking

    That button in his mouth is soo distracting that I couldn't get past the pic!!! Can someone tell me what the story is about? While I go back and stare into the button??? ?

  • Jay

    LOL! why is he calling it a terrorist attack though?

  • Decked Out

    Khloe has a HISTORY of breaking up FAMILIES just for the Black "D"
    After 30 days who gets married anyway? He was USED and wanted to be FAMOUS it seems. Pray she is okay.

  • BlueHousen

    You are making your own point. Don't forget Khloe's primary goal in life; Khloe and Khloe alone. When your dad marries, you cross your fingers you can formulate a relationship with your stepmother and Khloe never offered her that. Khloe had serious demands on Lamar and 'that life' and there was no time for that kid. She is part of the alienation she felt with her dad. You know about the evil stepmother lore and she fits into those shoes. Now imagine yourself at 8. No one is saying she is to blame and no one is excusing Lamar for his drugs issue. But everyone can agree Khloe and her family are a negative influence on men that thread water with them. Also, you are correct, Lamar was out there way before khloe came into the picture (he's been doing pot as a player, maybe other stuff and his career was on the down side). These women know who to target. Look at the dysfunctional men they are with. I find your defense of her disturbing.

  • YellowSauce

    Um ... the CRACK your father was smoking was toxic .... I actually watched khloe lie to one of his coaches for him because his IRRESPONSIBLE arse wouldn't even speak to him to tell him he was SKIPPING PRACTICE for the hundredth time ... but she tried to hold him down ...after he was in BROTHELS with cocaine she held him down ... ON LIFE SUPPORT she held him down ...... I have no idea what those ladies do to men but i'm NOT gonna let her hold this one ... she RODE for that dude ... sorry not sorry

  • KcoolMuziq

    The Kardashians are getting a bad rep for destroying black men. Now Tristan Thompson is being blamed for bringing ‘Kardashian Kurse’ To NBA Finals...Smh

  • BlueHousen

    For those of you defending Khloe, stop. The kid smelled an impostor and her sick daddy didn't have a chance.

  • Dowoop

    Oh plz...That is not why Cleveland is gonna take an "L" this year.

  • Dowoop

    They were never close so i doubt Khloe was ever that much in her life.

  • Dowoop

    She needs to talk to a therapist not the media.

  • YellowSauce


  • YellowSauce

    her childhood issues stem from her father LEAVING HER MOTHER .... not from khloe mess up their families and women are blamed ... he had 2 kids with the khloe look alike ... he didn't start drugs when he met khloe him and his friend that ( died by the way from drugs) were doing that crap long before she came on the scene .. I know its convenient but that man ... that GROWN man .. messed his own life up ... if I get crack right now and smoke it who's fault is that ...MINE and btw its 2017 who the entire hale is still smoking crack ???? ... I come in peace but come on ...

  • Tena

    Damn that crack done ate Lamar's teeth out. He looks horrible.

  • BlueHousen

    You are just stating the obvious and what is known. All is relative in a kid's worldview while growing up. Old broken home, new home with an unlikable step parent. Kids can whiff out the BS better than adults sometimes. It's also already known that Khloe was raised to be an opportunist and she still is to this day. Right now in this article, she is telling us about one thing in her sphere that contributed negatively in her life, Khloe. I'm sure other factors are involved, such as parents breaking up and Lamar doing drugs which he had been doing before he met Khloe.

  • Faux Gibbler

    He's crazy.

  • Genia W-m

    At 18 how much does she really know about an estranged father? His relationship was probably toxic because of his addiction. Some parents don't have much to offer their kids based on how they were raised. Odom is going to be a loving father like getting blood out of a turnip.

  • Genia W-m

    Like any woman, they're meeting the wrong types of men. Kourtney's boyfriend was white and he, too, was bad.

  • Shawneen Don’t Start Hicks

    The Kartrashians are toxic & Khloe didn't encourage him to see his kids. She's only wants Tristan's dumbass for the money. And why does she always fall for men who are in relationships with kids.

    all i have are screenshots of an article written by an indsutry insider who claims rihanna tormented chris brown throughout that whole ordeal and even had to "exorcize" a demon out of was bizarre but it sounded believable bc the industry is very satanic
