Report: Lamar Odom Fell Asleep on Courthouse Bench During Child Custody Hearing


Paul George, Lamar OdomSince the New York Post beat us to it, all we can do is reprint the first paragraph of their article and bow in admiration:

“He’s the ultimate benchwarmer!”

That was the lead sentence to the Post’s news story on Tuesday about Lamar Odom falling asleep on a courthouse bench during a child custody hearing in New York. The sleepy Clippers forward was in town to fight for custody of his 14-year-old daughter, Destiny, and 11-year-old son, Lamar Jr., with his former girlfriend Liza Morales.

Odom, clearly worn out from a game against the Thunder two nights before, curled up on a bench in the hallway while lawyers met privately to work out details, the Post reports. Eventually, a court officer approached the snoozing Odom and asked him to sit up.

In the spirit of a happy ending, the Post reports that “Odom’s baby mamma … has no beefs” with current wife Khloe Kardashian, and “even had one pleasant meeting with her.” So that’s good.
