Lamar Odom is not only a professional basketball player but also Khloe Kardashian’s hubby. Odom has three children with his ex-girlfriend Liza Morales: Destiny (1998), Lamar Jr. (2002), and Jayden (2005).
Star Magazine is reporting that 14-year-old Destiny is going through an emotional and troubled time. Destiny had openly expressed her feelings of depression and low self-esteem, also admitting to cutting herself while expressing her pain on Twitter. Critics are now questioning whether Destiny suffers from depression.
The troubled teen tweeted on January 27:
“I feel as if I am drowning in my own emotions, and I have no home to save me.”
She also confessed cutting herself, when a follower asked her how many and when was the last time she’d self-harmed, Destiny admitted:
“Tonight and I don’t count.”
Star Magazine reports that Destiny has felt isolated in recent months and hasn’t been able to see her mother as much as usual- she is currently starring in the reality show Starter Wives Confidential. In addition, Destiny would also like to spend more time with her father Lamar and his wife of four years Khloe, in Los Angeles.
“Her dad wasn’t around much when she was growing up,” a source tells Star. “But Khloe has made a real effort to develop a strong relationship with Destiny.”
The 28-year-old TV star and Destiny’s stepmother, Khloe, was shocked after learning that Destiny was going through an emotional turmoil, following a series of alarming tweets posted by the teen. She vowed to help Destiny overcome her issues.
Khloe has often spoken out about the importance of being a stepmother, she told Popeater in2011:
“I love children so much. I really feel like how Bruce step fathered us was so beautifully done. I take advice from him and my dad had a lot of girlfriends that were really awful to us.
“Mean people would say mean things to us to get us away from him because they wanted him for themselves. I really have had awful experiences from stepparents or stepgirlfriends whatever you want to call them and I think I have great experience to be a stepmom.”
Destiny’s Twitter account is now closed. Kim Kardashian tweeted:
