Long, drawn-out court hearings can be tiring … just ask Lamar Odom.
The Los Angeles Clippers forward caught some Z’s Tuesday morning on a bench in a New York City court hallway just before he faced off with his ex, Liza Morales, over child support and visitation of their two children.
According to TMZ, 33-year-old Odom – who is now married to Khloe Kardashian, of course – was so out of it due to jet lag, that he wasn’t even moving, which concerned onlookers. The New York Post adds that a court officer told the basketball pro, “I need you to sit up,” which Odom did … and then slumped over again.
In hilarious new photos obtained by In Touch Weekly, the 6'10" NBA star can be seen all sprawled out on a tiny bench ... peacefully counting sleep.
In addition to child support and visitation, Odom and Morales are also at odds over whether Destiny, 14, and 11-year-old Lamar Jr. can appear on their respective reality shows – “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” (and its many spin-offs) for him; TLC’s “Starter Wives Confidential” for her.
The night before he squared off with Morales in court, Odom and Kardashian had dinner at restaurant Catch in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, where, coincidentally, his former brother-in-law and fellow NBA player Kris Humphries was dining as well. When TMZ made Odom aware of the close call on Tuesday, he told the site that he would have gone over and said “What up?” to Humphries had he known he was there.
That ought to sit well with his in-laws at the next family dinner …
