Lamar Odom's ex, Liza Morales, has filed a lawsuit against the NBA star for allegedly refusing to pay child support. Liza's lawsuit alleges that she and their two kids are being evicted from their Manhattan apartment and that Lamar stopped paying child support last year.

"In June 2020, Lamar stopped providing any support save for sporadic amounts sent directly to LJ, placing their son in a very difficult situation." Read part of the complaint

Responding to the accusations, Lamar took to social media, saying that his kids are all grown now.

"#LizaMorales anything for clout 🤦🏾‍♂️I had no plans on addressing this, but I can't keep letting bitter women slander my name. I have taken care of Liza and my children their entire lives. My children are adults. I have paid child support for CHILDREN on-time monthly for the past 18 years. My CHILDREN are ADULTS."

He went on to ask his ex to get a job;

"I am saddened that in the past 15 years that Liza has not taken the initiative to get a job and create a source of income for herself aside from my monthly payment of child support. She is smart, able and capable of working to support the lavish lifestyle she wants to live."

"I love my adult children, and I will support them and their dreams in every way possible. I pray that Liza finds healing and gets to a place of independence. I am no longer shamed by my past mistakes. I own who I am and with a clear mind and conscience"

The NBA star concluded by saying he was going to present his case in court "Life is too short and uncertain for this. Lets all work on being our best selves."
