Lamar Odom’s ex, longtime girlfriend Liza Morales, is too struggling with the devastating news about her former love. While Lamar remains in the hospital, Liza is sending her love to the father of her children.
Liza Morales, 36, took to Twitter on October 14 to share her grief and admiration for Lamar Odom, 35, after he was rushed to the hospital with dire complications from an alleged overdose. The father of her kids, and once her longtime love, Lamar is deep within Liza’s thoughts at this time.
Liza posted an image of Tupac Shakur on Twitter, complete with a quote from the inspiring, uplifting rapper. “You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun. Well; we are the roses, this is the concrete, and these are my damaged petals.”
She clearly had Lamar on her mind when posting this. Liza doesn’t post to Twitter very often (her last tweet before this was on August 14), but she reached out on a tragic, terrible day to share something beautiful about someone misunderstood, in need of love.
Like many of Lamar’s other loved ones — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Caitlyn Jenner — Liza is defending Lamar from those judging his alleged drug usage. Per the quote, Lamar has had an incredibly difficult life, and he’s come out rough around the edges because of his struggles. He shouldn’t be disparaged; he should be supported for trying to survive.
Liza has shared much of this heartbreak with Lamar. Their six-month-old baby, Jayden, died in 2006 due to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). It’s a heartbreak no parent could ever forget, and a bond that Liza and Lamar will always share. The two are also parents to Destiny and Lamar Jr. Liza and Lamar may not be together, but there is definitely love and devotion abound.
Our thoughts remain with Lamar and his loved ones at this time.
