Lamar Odom’s children are not giving up hope on him. As the two time NBA champion remains in a comatose state, his kids, Destiny and Lamar Jr., are pleading fans to continue to send their prayers and support for their father.
Destiny, 17, and Lamar Odom Jr., 13, have been by Lamar‘s, 35, side ever since they and their mother Liza Morales, 36, arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada on Oct. 15. As the NBA player’s children continue to support him, they released a statement asking fans to continue praying for Lamar. Read their heartfelt message here.
“Thanks for your outpouring of prayers and support for our dad. We are here with our family and friends,” Destiny and Lamar Jr.’s statement reads. “We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy at this time. We ask for your continued prayers.” It has been a hard time for everyone who knew Lamar. Khloe Kardashian, 31, put her entire life on hold to be with the 35-year-old, but nothing is as heartbreaking as Destiny’s response to her father’s condition.
A day before she and her family flew to Las Vegas, the 17-year-old posted some agonizing tweets directed towards her father. “Please don’t leave us💔💔,” Destiny wrote on Oct. 14. “Soon I’ll be by your side and I’ll never let go. I love you daddy💔💔” Once she was by his side, an insider told us that Destiny immediately broke down when she saw her father. “Upon seeing her dad laying in his bed, Destiny lost it. Her spirit broke. Tears ran all down her face and she kissed her dad’s cheeks and hugged him,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. So sad. The entire family is praying nonstop for his recovery.
Lamar’s Ex-Wife Liza Sends Inspiring Tweet After His Hospitalization
When Lamar was hospitalized, Liza sent her ex an inspiring message before heading to the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada to see him. The 36-year-old simply posted an image of Tupac Shakur on Oct. 14 via Twitter. It was a quote from the inspiring rapper that read, “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.” Liza certainly had Lamar on her mind when she posted this message.
Our thoughts continue to remain with Lamar and his family during this difficult time in his life.
