My thoughts are that they should share in the blame. I know the substance abuse is a problem that he had but I didn't see anything coming from that family to help other than playing out his personal life on their show for ratings and money. I feel that when someone has an issue of any kind, it should be private and they should have searched for a resolution to the issue. Even though people claimed that Lamar had these problems long ago, it didn't come to light until he got with this family. The Kardashians was his downfall. They have also had an affect on Kanye's career. Prior to he and Kim getting together, he was on top. His popularity has gone down hill.
