According to Hollywood Life, Joe Odom believes his son is way more responsible than most people think and says he thinks his son was drugged.

"Somebody drugged my son. There's no way he's down there partying crazy like that. No way," he told the site. "I knew something was wrong because I've been calling him all day and he hasn't been answering. I'm depressed right now. This is messed up!"

Joe continues, "What can I do right now? That's my son. I'm really hurt right now. This is the first time I’m hearing about it. Let’s give this some time. I pray that he will come out of this. I need all his fans to send him well wishes. If Khloé [Kardashian] knows anything about this, please, tell her to call me. We all love Lamar and want him to pull through this."

We previously reported that Lamar's ex wife, Khloe, her sister Kim Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner arrived Las Vegas on Tuesday night to show support to the sportsman as he fights for his life. “[Khloé] just found out and is hysterical and doesn’t know what to do,” an insider told TMZ.

We all are praying that Lamar gets through this safely and gets all the help he badly needs
