Lamar Odom Skips Child Support Hearing

Two months ago Lamar Odom's baby mama Liza Morales filed a lawsuit against Lamar claiming she was about to be evicted because he stopped paying child support [click here if you missed that]. 

This week Lamar skipped the first hearing in the case...

A Manhattan judge on Tuesday ripped Lamar Odom for failing to pony up on child support payments — after participating in a celebrity boxing match that his ex claims netted him a $40,000 paycheck.
“If Mr. Odom is in good enough shape to participate in a boxing match, he’s certainly in good enough shape to abide by his obligations to support his children as set forth in the settlement agreement,” Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Matthew Cooper said during a video hearing — which the former Los Angeles Laker did not attend.
Morales’ lawyer, Abraham Borenstein, told the judge that Odom hasn’t been paying child support and he owes her over $91,000 through July.
Borenstein also said Odom’s fallen behind on nearly $83,000 rent for a West Street apartment in Lower Manhattan, where Morales lives with their kids — prompting the landlord to start an eviction case against her.

Lamar and Liza share two children ages 19 and 22.
