‘We Have A Professional On Board:’ Liza Morales Addresses Rumors Of Daughter’s Depression And Self-Inflicted Cutting

February 7, 2013  |  

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.
