In a sea of congratulatory messages on a Lamar Odom Instagram post announcing his engagement to girlfriend and personal trainer Sabrina Parr, Lamar Odom Jr. had a vastly different take.
Lamar Morales-Odom Jr. blasted his dad on social media after the former NBA star popped the question at Myles Chefetz’s Prime 112 restaurant in Miami and announced it to his 547,000 followers before informing his own son.
In a now-deleted Instagram comment posted Monday night, the 17-year-old lashed out at his dad not only for keeping him out of the loop, but for getting caught up with a woman who allegedly doesn’t have a high approval rating in Lamar’s circles.
“Not a [text] or phone call to see how people who’ve known this dude his whole life, to see how we would feel or react. knew shawty for 4 months and already got you twisted, fam n friends already don’t approve of homegirl but she already got your ass in a sunken place. Shame family gotta find out on social media but that’s been how life been all the time as a son of an odom.”
Odom Jr. must’ve gotten a stern talking to from daddy, because he then posted an apology message to his Instagram.
Last night I was emotional seeing my father got engaged through social media. I was hurt and caught off guard. At the end of the day, I am a teenager, that is becoming a young man. I have to be responsible for what I post, I have nothing but love for my dad and want what’s best for him.
I can’t imagine their first dinner together as a new family going in any way better than when Dale met Nancy Huff for the first time.
In any event, best of luck to the happy couple. Please don’t let Lamar Jr. shatter your plans to sail the world but then totally redeem himself at the Catalina Wine Mixer.
