Lamar Odom has been instructed to pay nearly $400,000 to his ex-girlfriend after he instantly stopped paying her child support and other costs related to their two kids.
Liza Morales sued the ex-Los Angeles Laker in May, claiming he hasn’t been honoring their 2015 settlement agreement over their now-adult children since June 2020.
Morales alleged that Odom was behind on child support, college costs, and tuition, as well as rent for the Lower Manhattan apartment where she lives with their kids, Destiny, 23, and Lamar Jr., 19, prompting an eviction case against her.
At a court hearing last month, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper granted Morales’ appeal for a default judgment against Odom, since he hadn’t appeared in the case to defend himself against the claims.
Cooper then signed his judgment, made public Thursday, July 29, ordering Odom to pay $380,549 in child support, rent arrears, college costs, and her legal fees in the case.
Lamar Odom must also settle a life insurance policy worth $1 million, with his ex as the beneficiary, by Friday, the judge concluded. Otherwise, Morales “may go into a judgment against Lamar Odom for an additional $1,000,000,” states the order, signed July 20.
