Lamar Odom falls asleep while in court for custody case

Lamar Odom was in court yesterday to address the child support and visitation of his two children with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales. But he doesn’t seem to concerned with the case. In fact, the Los Angeles Clippers forward fell asleep and had to be nudged awake.

Just before the hearing began on Tuesday morning, Lamar was spotted asleep on a bench in the hallway of the courthouse prompting a court officer to ask, “Excuse me, are you OK?” Once he awoke, the officer requested that Lamar sit up — which he did. However, he remained slumped over and rested his head on his hand.

After court let out, Lamar ran in to TMZ where he explained that he was exhausted with jet-lag. Also outside of court Liza weighed in on her baby daddy’s nap by laughing and saying, “He’s tired.”

Not only is child support and visitation an issue for the former pair — they are also fighting over 14-year-old Destiny and 11-year-old Lamar Jr’s involvement on reality TV. Lamar is currently starring alongside his wife Khloe Kardashian on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Liza starred on TLC’s Starter Wives which after premiering on January 29 was cancelled just three weeks later.

Also yesterday, Liza published an open letter on The Daily Beast in which she revealed the devastation she felt when she learned of Lamar’s relationship and quick marriage to Khloe.

“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.”

“As I continue to move on with my life, it can be difficult to avoid hearing about the Kardashians day in and day out. But I do what I can to ignore the constant chatter and I try to keep it from the kids as well so they can have a life that is as normal as possible.”

Lamar will be returning to reality TV (with or without his kids) this June in Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ eighth season.
