Not The First Time Lamar Odom Got Sued
A few months ago, the NBA player faced a controversy surrounding his child support for his kids.
According to Page Six, Liza Morales, Odom's ex, and their children were asked to be evicted from their apartment in New York because the athlete refused to pay child support.
Odom allegedly stopped giving money since June of 2020 and has been violating their agreement for years.
The arrangement stated that the basketball player must give $6,000 a month, excluding college fees and a $9 million life insurance.
"In June 2020, Lamar stopped providing any support save for sporadic amounts sent directly to LJ, placing their son in a very difficult situation," Odom's ex stated.
Lamar Odom Traumatized By Cars?

Odom was uninjured; however, he was "visibly distraught" after the accident, and he was reportedly crying over the incident.
