Daughter of NBA player Lamar Odom talked to People Magazine regarding her father’s marriage to Khloe Kardashian and how that changed the dynamic of their relationship. People featured her in the segment Surviving A Father’s Addiction: Lamar Odom’s Family Speaks Out.
Destiny Odom, 17, told People “Things changed when my dad married Khloe. Things were a lot more public, 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. It was crazy that my dad was getting married to this woman that I used to watch religiously, It was such a whirlwind, really.”
Destiny recalls the time when the Kardashians stepped in to assist Lamar after his overdose. She claims that “A lot of people in our circle were confused. Their relationship is very toxic.”
Eventually, their relationship created issues for Destiny in school. 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.”

“I’ve had conversations with him just letting him know that I want him to get help,” she says. “But at the end of the day he’s a grown man and you have to want it for yourself.”
