Clippers Lamar Odom Falls Asleep During Child Custody Hearing
Hey its not like he fell asleep during a game, right?
Los Angeles Clippers forward Lamar Odom, fell asleep during a child custody hearing in New York according to a report in the NYPost.
Odom and former long-time girlfriend Liza Morales are fighting over custody of their daughter Destiny, 9, and son Lamar Jr., 5.
The 6-foot-10 hoopster’s legs dangled well over the short, second-floor wooden bench. His impromptu nap drew the attention of a Manhattan court officer.
“Excuse me, are you OK?” the officer asked Odom.
After the player said he was fine, the officer said: “I need you to sit up.”
Odom complied but slumped over, resting his head on his hand.
Apparently, the mother of Odom’s children is still harboring some ill-will towards him for marrying Khloe Kardashian as you can tell in this letter she wrote to the Daily Beast.
“I don’t think I’ll forget the tight knot I felt in the pit of my stomach the morning I received the text message with three simple words on the screen. It read ‘I’m getting married’ and it was from the man I’d spent more than 10 years of my life with,” she said.
“Years that included us getting engaged in 2000 and becoming parents to one daughter and two sons. Yet not long after our separation Lamar Odom was getting married to Khloe Kardashian, a woman he’d met four weeks before.”
She added: “How could the man who’d constantly given me reason after reason for why we couldn’t get married just yet now be ready to tie the knot so quickly? There aren’t words to explain how I felt that day.”
I feel for Lamar, I really do, it’s must be exhausting balancing an NBA career, being a father, husband, and a Kardashian.
