His last tweet was this past July and aside from a few appearances running errands, the Queens native, along with his wife (Khloe) and the Kardashian clan have remained mum–until now. Tuesday evening, Lamar broke his twitter silence, addressing his biological father head-on. He wrote:

Seeing the snakes…Won’t continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of shit. He wasn’t there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me. For the first time since they left, came a blessing of a FAMILY that I married into. FAMILY. That man wasn’t even invited to my wedding. He has never met my mother in law and some of my other family. How can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own “son”. He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me. He disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return. They are the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time. Only person 2 blame is myself. Say what you want about me but leave the ones who have done nothing but protect and love me out of this! This goes to out to everyone!

So where does this rant stem from? Earlier today, Radar Online reported that Lamar’s father, Joe, blames Lamar’s in-laws for his downward spiral. In short, he claims the Kardashian’s ruined his basketball career; put too much pressure on him by putting him on the family’s reality show; and called Kris Jenner an ‘evil b*tch’. Eek!
