Odom Falls Asleep During Child Custody Hearing

The New York Post is reporting that Los Angeles Clippers star Lamar Odom during a custody battle over his 14-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son. The children’s mother, Liza Morales, was never married to Odom.

The report states that while Odom’s and Morales’ lawyers spoke in another room, Odom managed to catch a 20-minute nap on a courthouse bench before being rudely awoken by a court officer. Odom claimed that he was both jet-lagged and flu-stricken.

Despite playing in the NBA since 1999, being named to the NBA All-Rookie Team, and playing for the U.S. national basketball team in the 2004 Olympics, Odom is, perhaps, most known recently for marrying reality TV star Khloé Kardashian. The couple’s wedding was featured on the reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and they were later featured in a spinoff reality TV show titled Khloé & Lamar. Part of the child custody battle is over whether the children can appear on Odom’s reality TV shows, or whether they will be a part of Morales’ reality TV show, Starter Wives.

    Lawyers: Make arrangements that no children are to be on any of the ridiciulous shows and for Lamar to take an energy drink or a cup of coffee the next time he is in court.

    Lamar: Next court date, pay for first class air fare, travel one day earlier, sleep the day before, and show up on time, alert. No one cares about the TV show. Don’t ruin your children any further by putting them on K&L.

    Liza: Start your own business, maybe a modeling agency or design lingerie. You have the look and the name recognition. Don’t ruin what good you have by being on a fake tv show. Consider taking acting classes and becoming a full-fledged actress. You already have taken enough of your clothes off so you already have one fit in the biz.

    It’s very unfortunate when a devoted, flu-stricken dad falling asleep while Court was NOT in session is headline news. Our focus should be on the CHILDREN!
