"I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of sh--," Odom writes. "He wasn't there 2 raise me.... For the first time since [my mother and grandmother] 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... 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!"

It's been a tough two months for Odom, who is not currently signed to an NBA team. In August, there were reports that his wife couldn't find him. Later that month he was arrested for a DUI which resulted in a license suspension for a year. He's due back in court this week.

Earlier this month, a photographer filed a lawsuit against Odom stemming from a July altercation.
