Lamar Odom will take advantage of any opportunity to discuss his feelings for Khloé Kardashian. Since his near-death overdose years ago, the former NBA player has been open about his journey to rehabilitation. He has stated that if given the chance, he would change some of his habits.
Although Odom and Kardashian’s marriage has been over for several years, the basketball legend has frequently used social media and interviews to lament his ex-wife. He’s back, but this time he’s using the issue between Will Smith and Chris Rock to promote defending one’s wife.
He loves his wife. I do not condone violence against anyone. @willsmith loves @jadapinkettsmith I was told love covers a multitude of sins. I see everyone arguing the merits of this altercation, taking side, dragging them both to hell when it all boils down to love. He loves his wife. She was hurting, it is a husband’s responsibility to protect his wife. That is what he vowed to God and her, he owes us ZERO explanation as to why he chose to hit @chrisrock, would I have hit him?, NO but he did what a husband is called to do. Protect his wife, from anything and anyone who causes her pain. Had I protected my wife versus mentally, emotionally and spiritually hurting her, I may still be married.
Rock appeared upset but attempted to keep the event on track, to the point where half of the internet believed the slap was staged. The moment was completely improvised, according to ABC executive Rob Mills, who was sitting in the Oscars production trailer with showrunners at the time.
Rock is said to have been ignorant that Jada’s haircut was caused by Alopecia. This should be a teaching moment, according to Odom, where people should learn about setting boundaries, humility, and forgiveness. Below is the complete text of Lamar Odom’s post.
