Lamar Odom Unconscious: Custody Battle With Baby Mama Due Next Week — Report
With Lamar Odom unconscious in a Las Vegas hospital, it seems doubtful he’ll make a full recovery… and even more doubtful he’ll make the court date he and ex Liza Morales had scheduled for next week as part of their ongoing custody battle.
The NBA star, still married to Khloe Kardashian, had for years been duking it out in court with Liza over custody of their two kids, 17-year-old Destiny and 13-year-old Lamar Jr. (Their third child, Jayden, passed away in 2006 at 6 months old.)
Per Daily Mail, Lamar and Liza were due to appear in a New York City civil court next week, with the site speculating that the impending court date might have been a factor in his partying at the Nevada brothel where he fell ill.

The two exes met in 9th grade at their Queens high school and started dating in 11th grade. Their relationship would last another 10 years, and they even contemplated marriage, Liza has claimed. She has since accused him of cheating on her while they were together.
“I struggled to deal with all the groupies around him and with whatever else that was going on and just stayed put,” she said, per Daily Mail.
“My denial came to an abrupt end in 2006 after the death of Jayden. Lamar and I never really talked about our loss, which I know wasn’t healthy and also meant our relationship would never last. It couldn’t.
“I found out soon after that he’d had a long-term relationship with another woman — a relationship he said he’d end but he didn’t — and that was that.”
Liza has also talked about feeling blindsided when Lamar texted her to say he was marrying Khloe.
In any case, Khloe has flown Liza, Destiny, and Lamar Jr. to Vegas to be at Lamar’s bedside — as we’ve previously reported — so we’re glad Lamar’s families are supporting one another in this crisis.
