Lamar Odom is getting called out in a big way. He is allegedly not paying child support at all. Landlords are currently trying to evict his children and their mother from a “posh Manhattan apartment” according to a lawsuit obtained by Page Six. He is refusing to help them out.
Liza Morales had two children with the former NBA player. She is claiming in a new lawsuit, filed on Thursday, that Odom stopped paying child support in June 2020, breaching their 2015 agreement.
Khloe Kardashian’s ex has struggled with drug abuse in the past. He was required to pay $6,000 a month to Morales, but he stopped. He was also supposed to pay college fees and a premium for a $9 million life insurance plan. It’s been just about a year since she saw any cash from him.
“In June 2020, Lamar stopped providing any support save for sporadic amounts sent directly to LJ, placing their son in a very difficult situation,” Morales alleged in the documents.
It is alleged that Odom took part in a “unilateral stoppage of all support.” This caused her some serious financial problems, especially since rent is $5,125 a month for their Manhattan home.
It is also alleged that her son was not able to attend a four-year college because Odom didn’t pay. He had to go to a community college instead. There’s nothing wrong with community colleges, but Odom promised to pay and he allegedly didn’t.
The eviction notice for Morales shows that she owes almost $50,000 in back rent since February 2020. In her lawsuit against Odom, she claimed that amount has risen to about $78,000. We will continue to monitor this ongoing story.
