TSR Updatez: A judge just handed Lamar Odom a large financial blow after ordering the former NBA star to pay his ex nearly $400,000 as he hasn’t paid a cent of child support in more than a year.
In court docs that were obtained by TMZ, a New York Judge ruled Lam Lam stopped making payments to his ex, Liza Morales, in June of last year even though a 2015 settlement agreement required him to pay thousands of dollars per month to her to help out with their two kids.
The court ordered Lamar to pay Morales a total of $380,549, which included $91,220 in outstanding child support, $88,117 in missed rent, $161,305 for their children’s college funds and expenses, and nearly $40,000 for her legal fees and expenses.
It looked like things were headed this way for Lamar after the judge in his case last month slammed him for his current publicity stunts.
The judge seemed to be upset that Lamar had time to entertain celebrity boxing matches–in reference to his recent fight with former pop star Aaron Carter–but still hadn’t paid his child support.
During the virtual hearing, Judge Cooper firmly stated, “If Mr. Odom is in good enough shape to participate in a boxing match, he’s certainly in good enough shape to abide by his obligations to support his children as set forth in the settlement agreement. I was disappointed that payments ceased.” When asked by the judge regarding Lamar Odom’s current financial stability, Liza Morales said he definitely is not hurting for money. “He is definitely making income. He just got a check for that boxing match. He is doing a lot of things regarding his brand. He has a CBD company that he works with,” she said.
Morales had sued Lamar back in May, claiming he missed all the payments he agreed to make since June 2020.
In the court’s ruling, the judge also noted Lamar did not show up for a key hearing in the case in June “despite due notice.”
