Lamar Odom has finally communicated publicly for the first time in three months, praising the Kardashians and ripping his father, according to TMZ.

Wow ... "praising the Kardashians" isn't something you often see in a sentence.

Odom's estranged father recently said publicly that the Kardashians ruined his son's career and turned him to drugs. He also called Kris Jenner "an evil (expletive)."

Lamar Odom responded by tweeting "Seeing the snakes," his first public communication since news broke over the summer that his marriage to Khloe Kardashian was in trouble because of his alleged drug use and arrest on suspicion of DUI.

"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 (expletive). 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," Odom tweeted.

He continued "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!"

Well then ... I guess someone shouldn't expect a Father's Day gift next year.

Earlier this month, Odom was charged with one count of DUI and went to rehab for one day, before checking out.

"Khloe gave Lamar an ultimatum: If he didn't get help, she'd end the marriage," a source told E! News. "So far, he's ignoring her."
