Lamar Odom Falls Asleep During Custody Case Hearing but It Doesn't Mean He Doesn't Care


by Julie Ryan Evans

Lamar OdomHopefully, it's not a case in which if you snooze you lose, because snoozing is just what Khloe Kardashian's man Lamar Odom was doing today at a New York courthouse. It happened during the child custody case between him and Liza Morales, the mother of his two children -- Destiny, 14, and Lamar Jr., 11. While attorneys argued about details regarding the child support and visitation, Lamar decided to take a nap. Yes, right there in the courthouse.

According to the New York Post, the Los Angeles Clippers player fell asleep on a "hard, not-so-comfortable courthouse bench". When an officer saw him, he approached him and asked, "Excuse me, are you okay?" When Lamar said he was okay, the officer told him, "I need you to sit up." Busted.

Beyond just being embarrassing, this isn't exactly the way to portray himself as a man who really is interested in his children's lives, now is it?

Who knows if the incident will have an impact on the case. It was a pretty unfortunate time to be caught snoozing. However, he did just fly across the country to be there, so we should give him somewhat of a break for jet lag; and the attorneys were arguing behind doors elsewhere, so it's not like he was napping in the midst of all the action. Also, I generally think he seems like a nice guy who cares about his kids a lot.

Still, to fall asleep when something so important is at stake just doesn't look good, especially when Morales seems to be fighting with everything she has.
 

She published a letter today on The Daily Beast, in which she details how devastating Lamar's marriage to Khloe was for her, and how she tries to keep her children sheltered from the constant Kardashian buzz, but has found it difficult.  She wrote:

As I continue to move on with my life, it can be difficult to avoid hearing about the Kardashians day in and day out.

But I do what I can to ignore the constant chatter and I try to keep it from the kids as well so they can have a life that is as normal as possible.

So there are plenty of hurt feelings and big issues at stake here, including whether their children can appear on any reality shows. So Lamar needs to be on his toes ... or least awake.

When a final decision will come is unknown at this point, but hopefully it will be what's best for the kids. And whatever happens next, let's hope Lamar knocks back a little more caffeine before showing up when it does. 

Where's the most embarrassing place you've ever fallen asleep?

I'm far from a Kardashian fan BUT let's cut him some slack.  He travels through different time zones, and is a pro athlete which makes sense that he'd be a bit tired and the first calm moment he got...well he nodded off.  Isn't the ex wife "who wants to shield the kids" also doing a reality show???!!!
