Whenever a celebrity first gets on, they, naturally, always want to introduce the people around them to the life of luxury they’ll soon be accustomed to. Some people get a house, others get cars, but then there are some family members and friends who make freeloading a way of life once someone they know starts getting paid. You know, they stop working like they’re they ones bringing home the bacon. Here are some of the worst offenders.
Lamar Odom’s Father
Lamar Odom’s father should be ashamed. He hasn’t been a part of his son’s life for decades. But as soon as he realized what he’s been missing, he returns with his hands out. That’s very tasteless. This poor old man was begging on TV for tickets to the game and whatever else he could stiff Lamar on. Lamar is being played because as everyone says,” you only get one father”.

Oftentimes when couples mix business with pleasure, it can cause tension in the relationship but not for these couples. Here are 15 celeb couples that became partners in the bedroom and boardroom.
Daytime darling Kelly Ripa met her husband Mark Consuelos on the set of ABC’s “All My Children.” After keeping their relationship a secret for over a year, the couple snuck off to Vegas to elope. Ripa and Consuelos continued to play married couple Hayley and Mateo on the soap opera for six years until leaving the show. Having no problem working together, Ripa and Consuelos founded production company Milijo in 2007 and made several films that premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival.
Lamar Odom is facing allegations the tax exempt charity he created is being sketchy with its money … and not donating ANY cash to cancer research, despite the charity’s mission statement.
Lamar established the charity – Cathy’s Kids — in memory of his mother, who died from cancer when he was 12 … and initially stated that the purpose of the charity was to help underprivileged kids and raise money for cancer research.
But according to official records — obtained by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” — there is no evidence any of the money ever went to fight cancer.

‘You Can Get Up And Move On After Things Fall Apart:’ Liza Morales Pens Open Letter About Losing Lamar Odom to Khloe Kardashian
Anyone who has been there knows that it is rather difficult to get past a rough breakup. Being unable to stroll through your local supermarket without seeing your ex and the very famous woman whom he left you for, plastered on magazine covers seems unfathomable. While this sounds like a storyline from a horrible soap opera, it is indeed the reality for former Starter Wives: Confidential star and mother to Lamar Odom’s children, Liza Morales. The Daily Beast recently published a rather detailed open letter penned by the New York native, where she recounts what it felt like to watch the love of her life marry another woman and how she moved on. The letter in its entirety reads:
“I don’t think I’ll forget the tight knot I felt in the pit of my stomach the morning I received the text message with three simple words on the screen. It read “I’m getting married” and it was from the man I’d spent more than 10 years of my life with. Years that included us getting engaged in 2000 and becoming parents to one daughter and two sons. Yet not long after our separation Lamar Odom was getting married to Khloe Kardashian, a woman he’d met four weeks before. How could the man who’d constantly given me reason after reason for why we couldn’t get married just yet now be ready to tie the knot so quickly? There aren’t words to explain how I felt that day.
I met Lamar in the 9th grade in Queens, New York, and was completely taken in by his wit, charm, and that devastating smile he so easily flashed at anyone he met. We dated from the 11th grade on and shared a tight bond due to a lot of things, including the fact that we both were products of broken homes.
Though my parents weren’t together, I did have a very close relationship with my father, whom I loved dearly and consider my hero. He worked very hard to make sure I could attend Catholic school and have everything I needed. But when I started dating Lamar that all changed. My father is Puerto Rican and he didn’t approve of me dating a black man. His small mind and small thinking ended the relationship with my dad. I wanted a life with Lamar and needed my family to support that. The next 10 years would be an amazing journey filled with many ups and down but Lamar and I were creating the family we’d both always dreamed of. Or so I thought.
We talked about marriage a lot during those days but Lamar would always tell me that NBA marriages never lasted. He’d point to Shaquille O’Neal’s marriage ending or Dwayne Wade’s marriage ending as examples of why we should wait until he retired to tie the knot. He told me he wanted to leave the game early and then the timing would be perfect for us. I listened to the many reasons why we weren’t married yet and believed them, knowing deep inside something wasn’t right. And then I slowly morphed into the girl I promised myself I’d never become, the girl who stayed long after she knew she shouldn’t. Truth is, I wanted that fairy tale so badly that I couldn’t bear to walk away from that life or take my children away from the comfort and security of a two-parent home.
I struggled to deal with all the groupies around him and with whatever else that was going on and just stayed put. My denial came to an abrupt end in 2006 after the death of Jayden. Lamar and I never really talked about our loss, which I know wasn’t healthy and also meant our relationship would never last. It couldn’t. I found out soon after that he’d had a long-term relationship with another woman—a relationship he said he’d end but he didn’t—and that was that.
We kept things cordial for the children’s sake after the breakup, but that changed when he married Khloe. Now we only communicate through third parties and lawyers, which I regret deeply since it is exactly what we each experienced as children and said we wouldn’t do to our kids.
I’ve only met Khloe once, at my request since she is my children’s stepmother and I felt it was important to get a sense of her and what she’s like around my children. It was a very pleasant meeting, she gave me a hug so I’m happy it happened.
Though some frown upon my decision to do a reality show, I agreed to be a part of “Starter Wives” so I could tell my own story of how things unfolded after Lamar married Khloe. We weren’t really together so I didn’t fall apart as many have suggested. I’ve have to deal with a lot of tabloid lies as the result of all the attention Lamar gets since he’s married to someone so famous.
To be honest I’m really doing the show for my daughter to prove to her that you can get up and move on after things fall apart. I did it to show her how you make mistakes and fix them and that you can never give up on yourself. She needed to see that and hear it from me. I think I also hope my father sees it as well. The only time I’ve seen my dad in recent years was at the funeral for my son. That was the first time Lamar had ever met him or that the kids had a chance to meet him. I’d really love for my kids to have their grandparents in their lives. They’ve met Lamar’s father (his mother passed away before we met) and are very close to my mother. I’d like to see that change and see them have relationships with both of their grandfathers.”

‘We Have A Professional On Board:’ Liza Morales Addresses Rumors Of Daughter’s Depression And Self-Inflicted Cutting
Towards the end of last month, many were shocked to learn that Lamar Odom’s 14-year-old daughter Destiny, whom he shares with Starter Wives Confidential star, Liza Morales is battling some serious issues regarding her mental and emotional health. The bomb was dropped when the teen took to her Twitter page to express her low emotional state.
“I feel as If I am drowning in my own emotions, and I have no home to save me,” she tweeted.
What came after that tweet is what grabbed the attention and concern of many. While we’re not exactly sure what prompted this, a follower asked her how frequently she cuts herself and when was the last time she did it.
“Tonight and I don’t count,” Destiny replied.
Since then, a slew of stories have been circulating around the rumor mill regarding Destiny, her step-mother Khloe’s desperate attempts to pull her out of the fragile state that she has found herself in and Lamar being an absentee dad for the earlier years of her life. According to Star Magazine, it has also been rumored that Destiny’s sorrowful state has been a result of the limited amount of time she’s been able to spend with her mother Liza over the past few months due to the filming of Starter Wives Confidential.
Liza recently spoke to Radar Online regarding these rumors and expressed that although Destiny may be experiencing depression, both she and Lamar are doing everything that they can to tend to their daughter’s needs.
“My children have always and will always be my top priority in life.”
“This matter has been addressed with our daughter. We have a professional on board to evaluate the situation; Destiny is not hurting herself but we are not taking this lightly,”
“With the added pressures of Hollywood and the instant attention of social media, it’s not always easy for a teenager to express their emotions in the best way. This is a private family matter, and we would appreciate respect and privacy during this time.”
It’s good to see that Liza and Lamar have not taken their daughter’s cry for help lightly and are seeking professional help.
“Imitation Is A Form Of Flattery”: Liza Morales Speaks On Claims That She And Khloe Kardashian Look Very Similar
Khloe is on the left, Liza on the right. In case you were already confused.
In an interview with the New York Daily News recently, Starter Wives Confidential star and the mother of Lamar Odom’s children, Liza Morales, spoke on Khloe Kardashian as a mother in the future, and the claims that homegirl bears a resemblance to the famous Kardashian sister. Things got a little shady, if you know what I mean, but Morales makes it seem as though she and Khloe get along just fine.
For some reason, conversation veered away from talking about her upcoming TLC series and instead began to focus more on Khloe, and somehow, all of a sudden the new reality star was asked if she felt that Lamar’s new wife would be a good mother, since she gets the chance to spend a lot of time with the son and daughter Morales shares with Odom, and has also struggled in the past to get pregnant. “I don’t know if she’s good maternally, I don’t know. As long as my kids are good, I’m good…As long as my kids are taken care of and I haven’t heard anything negative, then I’m good.”
On top of that, Morales also decided to give a response to the many people who seem to think that she and Kardashian are strikingly similar in their physical appearance. I personally don’t see it aside from the dark hair, but that’s just me. Older than Khloe, Morales makes it clear that if anything, the Kardashian sister looks like HER, not the other way around:
“I’m 100% Puerto Rican and I was here first. I was here first, so she has a resemblance to me. I don’t see it. We both have dark hair. We both have a cherub face. I don’t think we look alike, but I have heard it. Imitation is a form of flattery!”
In her interview with the New York Daily News’ entertainment site, Confidential, Morales also talks about why she and Odom went their separate ways after the death of their son, who passed from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, but also says that she’s moved on and can’t wait to have sex again in the future after being celibate for the last four years: “I’m not waiting for marriage, I’m just waiting for a good man. I will be like a caged animal out of the Bronx Zoo.”
Well all right. While other sites, including those at the NY Daily News who interviewed her, tried to come at Morales’ head for saying she didn’t know if Khloe would be good maternally, let me say that it clearly says that she claimed she “didn’t know” whether or not she would be a good mom, not that she would be a bad one for this reason or the other. You truly don’t know what type of parents folks will be until they actually get a baby in their hands to take care of 24/7. But as for Morales’ comments on herself and Khloe looking similar…uh, no comment. Check out the full interview here.
Liza Morales Tells MN How She Feels About ‘Khloe And Lamar’ And Why She Thinks Her Ex Will Watch Her On ‘Starter Wives’
I think a first in television history may be happening right now. Two exes are starring in reality shows at the same time, and while neither one is on speaking terms with the other, they’re talking a lot about one another to the cameras. That’s the case with Liza Morales, star of TLC’s new reality show “Starter Wives,” and her ex-fiance Lamar Odom, who now is a part of the Kardashian franchise and pops up on camera whenever Kris Jenner and Ryan Seacrest say so.
Liza has had a rough time since her split from Lamar and the death of their third child and when we caught up with her at the “Starter Wives” screening she had some surprising things to say about her time since she and Lamar split four years ago, and just how much contact she, her ex, and her ex’s wife, Khloe, keep in touch. Check out the exclusive.
Instead of taking it to the streets, these celebrities are taking it to the courtroom — or being taken there. You’d be surprised at what you can learn about a celebrity from the bills they don’t pay, the people they wrong and the dirt they get up to. Allegedly, of course. That’s why we have public records to see whose done people so wrong they’re getting sued for it. Check this list of offenders.
RZA is being sued by Thea Van Seijen: the chick who sang hooks on a lot of his songs. She says that she’s never gotten any royalties but was afraid to demand them and ruin her career. RZA says he found the woman on the street, gave her food, a place to stay and 15 minutes so they’re even. See you in court I guess.

And When He Get On, He’ll Leave Your A**: Men Who Left Their “Ride Or Die” Chicks When They Made It REALLY Big
Fame can be a good and bad thing. It can be good for the man who gets it, and bad for the woman who stands by his side through it all. While some women have been lucky to have their men stay committed to them as the spotlight gets brighter (think LeBron James and Savannah Brinson), others get distracted by all the good looking chicks throwing themselves at them and eff up. And when that happens, they leave their “ride or dies” for something that seems better. Well, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side (and hey, sometimes it actually is). Check out these 10 fellas who got on and left their longtime loves for one reason or another (including another chick who caught their eye).
Chris Bosh Leaves Allison Mathis, Marries Adrienne Williams
Just as a heads up, know that you’re going to see many a basketball player on this list. It seems they can’t hold it together when the money comes and the thirsty chicks step up. Anywho, Bosh was in a relationship with girlfriend Allison Mathis way back when he was playing for the Toronto Raptors and struggling to get some wins. They met in 2005 and according to the Toronto Star, she was a mainstay at his games for many seasons after that. But by 2008, she got pregnant and things fell apart. There were claims that he wasn’t taking care of his daughter, Trinity, and things got ugly. But luckily, after paternity cleared up, he started supporting his little girl. While he and Allison couldn’t make it last, Bosh found love soon after with his current wife, Adrienne Bosh, and the two married in 2011, giving birth to their son, Jackson, earlier this year. Speaking of marriage, in an interview with VIBE, Allison says they were supposed to make it to the altar first, but sadly, it didn’t happen.
“We talked about it; we actually got fitted for rings and everything. We talked about the different designs and everything so it was definitely in the plans. He, of course, told my mother and assured my mother, because my mother was very kind of against us having a baby before marriage. But he assured her; he told his mother and father, so a lot of my family and I were aware that it was going to happen and it just did not.”
