Lamar sues his ex-girlfriend, Liza Morales, over custody of their two kids.
Although Khloe Kardashian and her NBA star hubby, Lamar Odom have been trying to get pregnant for the past few months, so far Khloe hasn't been as lucky as her younger sis, Kourtney in the baby-making department. Still, it looks like Lamar wants be a real family man, and he's starting by focusing on his relationship with the two kids he already has from a previous relationship.
According to Radar Online, Lamar is suing his baby mama, Liza Morales, (who looks eerily similar to Khloe) over visitation and child support. And the New York Post reports that the LA Laker wants the judge to set a "parental access schedule" and institute "reasonable child support." We're guessing that means Morales took Lamar to town on the child-support front after the couple split in 2006 (or at least Lamar thinks that's the case).
But Morales says Lamar is the bad guy here, and his sudden interest in seeing his kids comes out of the blue. She tells the Post that Lamar "basically checked out as a father four years ago," after their youngest child died of SIDS (at just six months—sad, right?) and their relationship collapsed.
"When we lost our son, he was nowhere to be found," she claimed. "They haven't had quality time in a long time." Morales also alleges it isn't her fault Odom hasn't seen his kids, insisting she had to "beg" the basketball player just to "pay attention" to his kids.
"This whole going to court thing—people, my neighbors—I don't want them to think this is the kind of mother I am, that he has to go to court for visitation," she told the Post. "It's just really shocking because Lamar knows the truth."
