Odom Custody Case: Khloe Kardashian's Husband Falls Asleep in Court

L.A. Clippers player Lamar Odom was caught snoozing on a bench outside the courtroom just before his child custody hearing, reports said.

The NBA basketball player, who is married to reality star Khloe Kardashian, admitted that he was exhausted after arriving to the court in New York on Tuesday. The player blamed "jet lag," according to TMZ.

The player was so "exhausted" he allegedly fell "into a deep sleep before the hearing." The site added that "concerned" cops had to "nudge" the player back to reality.

The custody case pertained to his two children with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales. The couple is in the middle of a battle over child support, visitation rights, and according to the news site, reality show appearances. Morales is apparently not thrilled with the idea of her two children appearing on "Keeping Up With the Kardashian."

Morales was also offered her own reality show opportunity last year when TLC asked her to appear on a show titled "Starter Wives."

"Liza and a bunch of other ladies who were married [to] or dated famous men are coming to TLC," a network insider told the Huffington Post in 2010.

"This show isn't going to be fake reality show," another insider added. "It's going to reveal the truth about a lot of men we thought we knew."

Morales, who dated Odom for 12 years before he began his relationship with Kardashian, has accused the player in the past of having a 2-year affair before their relationship was over. She also stated in 2010 that Odom "hardly ever" comes to visit his children now that he is married to the reality star.
