Lamar Odom Says: ‘I Am Their Father!’
Los Angeles Clippers star Lamar Odom is suing his ex-girlfriend Liza Morales over visitation and child support of their two kids.
Recently he filed a petition in Manhattan Supreme Court asking a judge to set a “parental access schedule” and “reasonable child support for his daughter, Destiny, 12, and son, L.J., 9, who live in Manhattan with their mom, Liza Morales. Morales, 31, states that this has caught her by surprise because she has requested that Odom spend more time with their children.
Liza and Lamar have a total of three children together, Destiny (1998), Lamar Jr. (2002), and Jayden (born December 15, 2005). In 2006, they lost their son Jayden when he was just 6 months old due to sudden infant death syndrome while sleeping in his crib. At this time, Liza's relationship with Lamar broke down.
Liza stated, “When we lost our son, he [Odom] was nowhere to be found,” she said. Since then “I always had to be the one to ask him: ‘Lamar, do you want the kids?’” she said.
In September 2009, reports that Odom was engaged to reality television personality Khloé Kardashian surfaced. On Sunday, September 27, 2009, Odom and Kardashian were married.
Talks of a new reality show for Lamar and Khloe are floating around.The new reality show will follow the couple as they try to conceive a new baby. This new show will not feature Lamar's children with Liza because she will not allow the children on television.
