NBA player Lamar Odom is battling a child custody case with his ex- Liza Morales, and according to the Tuesday, March 5 New York Post reports Odom fell asleep on courthouse bench during the custody hearing.
Not to smooth a move for Lamar Odom when the Los Angeles Clippers' forward nodded off on a hard wooden courthouse bench earlier today while attorneys argued the finer points of Odom and Morales' ongoing custody case.
Reportedly the 6-foot-10 hoopster’s legs were described as dangling well over the short, second-floor wooden bench. Odom's cat nap caught the attention of a Manhattan court officer who asked;
"Excuse me, are you OK?”
Lamar Odom replied that he was fine, with the officer saying: “I need you to sit up."
Odom complied but slumped over, resting his head on his hand.
Lamar Odom and former long-time girlfriend Liza Morales have been engaging in a long custody battle concerning their daughter Destiny, 14, and son Lamar Jr., 11.
Lamar Odom will have to wrap up the custody hearing in time to get back Los Angeles by game time. They’re set to play the visiting Milwaukee Bucks at 10:30 p.m. EST tomorrow.
Liza Morales is currently starring on the TLC reality series “Starter Wives,” even though she was never actually married to Lamar Odom.
Morales said she fights a losing battle to keep her kids blinded to the Kardashians’ relentless hype machine.
“As I continue to move on with my life, it can be difficult to avoid hearing about the Kardashians day in and day out,” she said.
“But I do what I can to ignore the constant chatter and I try to keep it from the kids as well so they can have a life that is as normal as possible.”
