Khloé Kardashian's ex husband Lamar Odom has spoken about the "Kardashian curse" calling it "stupidity" and saying those who believe in it are "dumbasses."

The "Kardashian curse" is the theory that those who date the Kardashian-Jenner sisters suffer misfortune as a result of their relationships with the famous family. In a recent interview Khloé's former husband Lamar Odom hit out at the idea of a 'curse'.

"That’s stupidity because everybody goes through s**t. If I had your family on tape, and see all the s**t your family was going through, people would be like, 'This f***ing family is crazy!'" Lamar toldVlad TV.

"People would see all the drug addicts, all the sex, they share their life with you, so you see everything," he explained. "Maybe it’s overexposed, but people love it. The people that made them are the ones who point the fingers. It’s kind of sickening. I’ve lived it from the inside in, to the outside."

Lamar added that while it's hard to understand the relationship fans seem to have with the famous family, he only feels "lucky enough to have some of that stardust fall off on me."

Of course, while the curse is clearly a made-up pop culture theory, it gained a fair amount of attention back in 2016 when Scott Disick went to see a spiritual medium during an episode of KUWTK to purge him of the 'curse'.

Again, in 2018 Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott together addressed the 'curse' directly during an interview with GQ. Both she and Travis refuted the idea, while Kylie said that the reality is that these men aren't able to cope with the level of celebrity that comes with being associated with the family. "That's exactly what it is," she said. "They come and can't handle it."
