Lamar Odom declared that he won’t stand for ‘slander’ while responding to Liza Morales’ lawsuit. She accused the basketball star of allegedly not paying child support for their adult children since June of 2020.

Lamar Odom defended himself against “slander” after his ex, Liza Morales, filed a child support lawsuit against him in the Manhattan Supreme Court on May 13. Liza claimed the basketball star stopped paying “any support” — save for “sporadic amounts” sent to their son LJ, 19 — in June of 2020, which Page Six reported about in an article titled, “Lamar Odom a deadbeat dad who won’t pay child support, lawsuit says.” So, Lamar posted a screenshot of this story — in which Liza also claimed that she and the kids are in danger of being evicted — on his own Instagram page and wrote under it, “#LizaMorales anything for clout.”

“I had no plans on addressing this but I can’t keep letting bitter women slander my name,” Lamar continued in his Instagram message, which he shared on Friday, May 14. He then pointed out that both of their kids — LJ and their daughter Destiny, 23 — are no longer minors. 
“I have taken care of Liza and my children their entire lives. My children are adults. I have paid child support for CHILDREN on time monthly for the past 18 years. My CHILDREN are ADULTS,” the NBA star wrote. While child support stops at the age of 18 in most U.S. states, in New York — where Liza and her kids live — “a child is entitled to be supported by his or her parents until the age of 21,” according to the website for the New York State Unified Court System.

Lamar went on to diss his ex, who just joined Season 9 of the VH1 reality television series Basketball Wives that premiered in March of 2021. “I am saddened that in the past 15 years that Liza has not taken the initiative to get a job and create a source of income for herself aside from my monthly payment of child support. She is smart, able and capable of working to support the lavish lifestyle she wants to live,” Lamar wrote.
“I love my adult children and I will support them and their dreams in every way possible. I pray that Liza finds healing and gets to a place of independence,” Lamar added. “I am no longer shamed by my past mistakes. I own who I am and with a clear mind and conscience I will present my case in court. Life is too short and uncertain for this. Lets all work on being our best selves.”
Lamar is reportedly supposed to pay around $6,000 in child support every month, in addition to “college fees and a premium for a $9 million life insurance plan,” according to Page Six‘s reporting of the former couple’s custody agreement that was made in 2015. Liza even accused Lamar of violating this agreement for the past six years.

As we mentioned earlier, Liza also accused Lamar’s alleged lack of child support for being the reason landlords are trying to evict Lamar’s ex and their kids from their luxurious apartment in Manhattan, according to the court documents that Page Six reviewed. Lamar’s rep said that the former Los Angeles Lakers star has “both publicly and privately tried to resolve the issue” with Liza, according to a statement given to The Post that Page Six cited.
This is not the first time Liza has brought money matters to the public’s attention, however — she also accused Lamar of not sending LJ’s “college money” on her Instagram Story in Oct. 2020.
Lamar’s money drama with Liza is playing out after he made headlines with a different ex in Nov. 2020. The basketball icon’s split from his fiancée Sabrina Parr was announced at the time, and Lamar later admitted that he cheated on Sabrina, but also accused her of sleeping with his “ex-wife’s significant other.” While Lamar didn’t name who this person was — or if this happened before they started dating, if true — he was once married to Khloe Kardashian until finalizing their divorce in 2016.

Jerreau – Persevere (Never How You Plan Album) letras

I’m just happy to be back you know
I ain’t been in this, in this booth in a minute, you know
Niggas, niggas been going through shit and shit (haha)
But thats life though
You know, you got to like persevere and what not
Ain’t that what they tell you? (hah)
Word up
What’s up?

[Verse 1]
Born and raised in Columbus
A product of the Southside
800 South Champion, that’s where I learned not to die
Gun shots through the night, ghetto birds in the sky
I walked to and from school, black boys can’t fly
You can do anything, the greatest lie ever told
I told myself all the time, sometimes you just got to lie
Because the system is broken, and the scales are tipped
And that city school to prison pipeline do exist
You miss what you don’t shoot, I’m a hundred percent
It’s real in the field, don’t come off that bench
How you raise your gun, before you raise your fist?
But how you raise your fist, before you raise you voice?
You ain’t a man you a boy, damn what you heard
Got to speak up, rest in peace, my niggas lost they voice
I’ve been trying to cut back, I got a drink in my hand
I’ve been trying to stack up, I need more paper damn
I’ve been trying to spend time with my immediate fam
But that don’t never pan out, swear they don’t know who I am
I was raised in the church, no I don’t go no more
See I got to find God, for myself, you should know
That’s why I quit that job, I got to work for my own
I got to pull my own load, I got to build me a home
Motherfuck being broke, damn this shit is depressing
And I just got word, my ex girlfriend pregnant
And I feel indifferent, not cause I’m jealous
You should know I feel indifferent about a lot of shit
But when you’re chasing a dream, you miss out on some shit
It’s like 3 or 4 girls I could have settled down with
But fuck it I’ll be that nigga that you never forget
And you love it, I’m still that nigga, don’t you ever forget
I come through with the who want it? Like anybody can get it
Like it’s open to the public, like fuck it
It’s Fly U! Three the hard way like a foul and a bucket
F U, if you don’t love it
In my feelings like that, sometimes it be like that
Allahu akbar, I’m just happy to be here
Sip this champagne, then spit at your women friend
Leaving you smiling from ear to ear, I’m at your neck
I need more gold chains and better sex
It never happens how you plan it, what’s next?
I’m in a Range with Ramos right now
Another hour driving LJ’s ghost right now
The first time behind the wheel of a quarter mill
I told myself, I need this feeling everyday by now
But right now, I ain’t eating, and it’s hunting season
I need three meals a day, I’m three M’s away
Get my mom a new place, give her moon she need space
It’s never not okay, and it’s slave for yourself until that day
What’s up?
It’s the Greater Than Club, what’s up, wassup?

It never happens how you plan it nigga
But get your money how you planned it nigga
Long as the ladies love a nigga, Imma always be that nigga
Whats up?
