Lamar Odom has been making headlines again of late, and it’s not for anything particularly flattering. The 2-time NBA champion was slapped with a lawsuit back in May by his ex-girlfriend and mother of two of his children, Liza Morales.
The crux of the matter is the claim that Lamar Odom had failed to abide by the terms of the settlement established between both parties back in 2015. In the said agreement, the former NBA star was expected to provide around $6,000 in monthly child support, with an addition sum to cover college fees.
Odom was also expected to pay the premiums for a $9 million life insurance plan, which he has reportedly failed to do. This comes from a report from Gabrielle Fonrouge of Page Six News. Just days ago, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Matthew Cooper ripped Odom apart for his failure to fulfill his promises despite earning a paycheck from a celebrity boxing match.
“If Mr. Odom 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,” said Judge Cooper.
But Lamar Odom didn’t take this sitting down. The former Los Angeles Lakers star took to Instagram to reveal his side of the story, providing a full-on rant airing his dirty laundry with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales.
Lamar Odom definitely said his piece, and then some. However, an insider close to Morales refuted the NBA star’s claims, stating that she has been hard at work in providing for her children, contrary to what Odom claimes.

“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.”
This particular beef between Lamar Odom and his baby mama Liza Morales doesn’t seem to be simmering down anytime soon.
