La­mar Odom’s ex-girl­friend Liza Mo­rales shares her sup­port

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 37-year-old re­tired pro­fes­sional bas­ket­ball player - who re­cently di­vorced from his for­mer wife KhloÈ Kar­dashian - checked him­self into a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre near San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia, ear­lier this week, and his for­mer part­ner has taken to In­sta­gram to post a mes­sage of sup­port. Post­ing a pic­ture of the note she had typed up, Liza - who shares chil­dren Destiny, 18, and La­mar Jr., 14 with La­mar - wrote: “In­stead of di­rectly re­spond­ing to each of the me­dia out­lets that have sent emails and dm’s, let me ex­press how proud we are of La­mar for tak­ing the nec­es­sary steps in his life’s jour­ney. “This is a pri­vate si­t­u­a­tion that has be­come pub­lic for ob­ser­va­tion, spec­u­la­tion and judg­ment. This may be me­dia fod­der for some, but La­mar is a fa­ther, kin and a friend. Any­one that has dealt (or is deal­ing) with the same si­t­u­a­tion with a loved one or friend knows it’s one day at a time. In the mean­time, Destiny, La­mar Jr. and I send light and pos­i­tiv­ity to their dad and hope you can do the same. (sic)” The news of sup­port comes af­ter it was re­cently re­ported that the star had en­tered re­hab in or­der to avoid temp­ta­tion from drink and drugs on the 10th birth­day of his third child Jay­den - also born to Liza - who died aged six months from Sud­den In­fant Death Syn­drome (SIDS). Ac­cord­ing to TMZ.com, La­mar “checked him­self into re­hab out of fear he’d go on a ma­jor ben­der as his de­ceased son’s birth­day ap­proached”. La­mar’s de­ci­sion to en­ter re­hab also comes a year af­ter he was hos­pi­tal­ized af­ter a drink and drug binge at a Ne­vada brothel. A source said of his re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion: “He went to con­tinue mak­ing sure he stays sober and on the right path. It was some­thing he chose to do. He did it for his kids and also wanted to feel 100 per­cent again. He did not re­lapse, but felt like he wanted to get away and start fresh for the New Year.”
