Lamar Odom is being sued by his ex-girlfriend Liza Morales for allegedly not paying child support. Morales, 42, filed the lawsuit on Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, claiming Odom stopped paying child support in June 2020.
Odom, 41, shares two children with Morales, Destiny, 23, and Lamar Jr., 19. Their third child, Jayden, born in 2005, tragically passed away in 2006 from sudden infant death syndrome.
According to a 2015 agreement between Morales and Odom, he is supposed to pay about $6,000 per month in child support. He is also required to pay college fees as well as a premium for a $9 million life insurance plan. But Morales alleges he has not made payments in nearly a year.
“In June 2020, Lamar stopped providing any support save for sporadic amounts sent directly to LJ, placing their son in a very difficult situation,” the civil suit alleges.
As a result, Morales claims she and her children are facing eviction from their $5,125/month Manhattan apartment because she cannot afford to pay rent without the support. Court records indicate Morales began facing eviction proceedings in December 2020 from J Hill Associates. She has allegedly owed nearly $50,000 in back rent, plus interest, since February 2020. Now, the figure she owes is $78,000, according to her lawsuit.
Moreover, Morales claims that due to Odom’s “unilateral stoppage of all support,” their son could not attend a four-year college and had to attend a community college instead.
Odom’s reps have not publicly commented on the story, according to PageSix.
Odom and Morales met in high school and were in a relationship for over 10 years. They became engaged in 2000 but never married. They split in 2009, and shortly afterward Odom married Khloé Kardashian.
Odom and Kardashian divorced in 2016 and share no children.
Recently, Odom made headlines for dismissing the notion of a “Kardashian curse” that inflicts the men who get involved with the high-profile family.
