EX-NBA Basketball player and husband of Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom says that he was “jet lagged and coming down with the flu” as a Manhattan court officer woke him and told him to sit up during court. Lamar who was in court fighting a custody battle with his ex Liza Morales in NY Supreme Court on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 is fighting for custody and visitation rights for his 14-year-old daughter Destiny, and 11-year-old son Lamar Jr.

The two have been fighting in court since 2010 for a “parental access schedule” the Post previously reported that Odom made the decision to take Morales to court because he wants to adjust his custody deal in order to have his children appear on his reality show “Khloe and Lamar.”


But, I thought this show was cancelled….. HMMMM

Recently in an open letter Morales said:

“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.”

That’s a damn good blow! Ouch, I felt that….
