Lamar Odom Says His Baby Mama Needs To Get A Job After Judge Ripped Him Over Unpaid Child Support
Lamar Odom has had enough.
At a hearing on Tuesday, a judge ripped the former NBA all-star saying that if he’s “is in good enough shape to participate in a boxing match, he’s certainly in good enough shape to abide by his obligations to support his children as set forth in the settlement agreement.”
“Basketball Wives” star Liza Morales say that ex Lamar Odom owes her around $91,000, and that the family faces being evicted from their Manhattan home if he doesn’t cough up some cash soon.
Odom has since responded in a fiery post on Instagram.
“I was never married to my kids’ mother. I took care of her from the second she became pregnant and even after I was married I still paid her bills. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for a GROWN ASS WOMAN!! Once my children became adults my duties were done! I told her to GO TO WORK! MOVE into an affordable home, she didn’t listen and that is NOT on ME!”
Their eldest child, Destiny, is 23 and their youngest, Lamar Jr, is 19.
Odom added in his post, “To the [people like] Liza who sit on their asses and expect a handout, who lie and manipulate their children, who use their children as pawns, who creates stories and scenarios to attract attention, may you seek healing and counseling for your brokenness — you need it.”
A source close to Morales told Page Six that his slurs are far from the truth.
“This whole narrative that Lamar is trying to use against Liza is complete bulls–t,” said the insider, “At the end of the day Liza has worked in real estate in New York City — one of the toughest in the country as far as the grind of it. Even right now she is working with the Department of Health in New York City. So don’t say she is not working and just sitting on her ass waiting for a check.”
They also said that she had, in fact, been planning on moving out of their $5000-a-month apartment.
“She was actually going to move to L.A. but then COVID hit. That was her plan — to leave the apartment. But she wanted her son to finish high school,” added the source, “She was in L.A. working filming a show [VH1’s ‘Basketball Wives’] for her own opportunities and her own branding opportunities for real estate. So she was in the process of getting her California real estate license.”
The source said that bringing up their kids was “a hard-ass job especially dealing with an unstable father and addict that is in the public eye. It has been double and triple the stress on her.”
In his own post, Odom said, “Do I send my kids money monthly? Hell yes! Do I support Liza? No !!! And I shouldn’t be made to either!”
