After weeks of speculation and rumors surrounding Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian, the former NBA player's father is speaking out against the Kardashian family, whom he claims are bringing his son down.

The former post office worker feels it's best the two go their separate ways in order to Lamar to be his addiction.

"Someone's got to speak out, I've got to do something about this. It's simple. They brought him down. He would be better off without them. Let him go and get his life together. I think the best thing for him would be to have a clean break, divorce Khloe and as a single man try and get his life back together," Joe Odom told RadarOnline.com.

He also feels that the Kardashian family, in particular Kris, is not worried about the welfare of his son, but rather the impact it has on her family name and their brand.

"It's more about the damage they do to the Kardashian brand. They brought him down. He'd be better off without them. Let him go, get his life together," his father said.

Lamar Odom's father Joe feels his son has been cursed since he married Khloe in 2009.

"The mother has been talking a lot of trash about my son, saying he's on drugs and stuff like that. She's got something against my son, something against my family. Kris Jenner is very negative. She's an evil b----. She doesn't care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money," he said.

"I blame Kris in particular, she's been through a lot of stuff herself. She's no Cinderella. I can't really say if the Kardashians are doing drugs, but my son would never use hard drugs. I can't pinpoint right now who's giving it him, but I'm going to investigate. The Kardashians haven't been a good influence on my son," he added.
