Liza Morales Praises Lamar Odom, Burns Khloe Kardashian

by at .

Khloe Kardashian may have played a vital role in saving Lamar Odom's life, but there's still not a lot of love lost when it comes to his ex.

The reality star's ex-wife, and his previous ex, Liza Morales, have been at odds in the past, and it looks like emotions are running high again.

Following Odom's return to rehab last week, she posted a message on Instagram following the former NBA star's decision to get help.

The 37-year-old, who shares two kids with Odom (and had a third who died, which we'll get to shortly), made a statement in the post:

“Instead of directly responding to each of the media outlets that have sent emails and dm’s," Liza Morales began.

"Let me express how proud we are of Lamar for taking the necessary steps in his life’s journey."

"This is a private situation that has become public for observation, speculation and judgement."

"This may be media fodder for some, but Lamar is a father, kin and a friend."

"Anyone that has dealt with (or is still dealing) with the same situation with a loved one or friend knows it’s one day at a time."

"In the meantime, Destiny, Lamar Jr and I send light and positivity to their dad and hope you can do the same."

Morales' supportive message could be interpreted as a dig at Khloe Kardashian, even though she nursed him back to health last year.

Khloe, some fans believe, led Lamar to believe they would get re-married, then dropped a bombshell by re-filing for divorce in May.

Morales, meanwhile, flies under the radar, but has continued to be a part of Odom's life and include Lamar in more family events.

All while Khloe gets hot and heavy with Tristan Thompson, and flaunts it online. That's just one interpretation, but it's not entirely invalid.

Moreover, Kardashian revealed just days ago that her entire famous family updated its wills so that she would be their medical adviser.

"This is kind of dark, but after that, my whole family changed all of their wills so that I could be their medical adviser," she told Health.

"Because you don't know how someone reacts until you're put in that situation," Khloe said, patting herself on the back a bit perhaps.

Odom, to be fair, was not a good husband to Khloe; Kardashian, to be fair, went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to his care.

Still, Morales' passive-aggressive dig is likely rooted in animosity over how Khloe handled things publicly over the course of the ordeal.

As for why Lamar is in rehab, Liza is connected to that too.

Khloe and Lamar: 19th Annual Race to Erase MS

Earlier this month marked the ten-year anniversary of the death of the couple's baby son, Jayden, who passed away from SIDS in 2006.

The couple's daughter Destiny was born in 1998, Lamar Jr. was born in 2002, and Jayden four years after that, but he died within months.

At the time, sources explained that Odom's decision to get help was "his own decision" and preemeptive "work on his mental and physical health.

Good as that sounds as a PR line, it's rarely that simple.

Sources close to Odom have suggested that the little one's death was one of the reasons he started doing hard drugs in the first place.

Those same sources also claim that compounding this issue is the fact that Lamar is having a hard time dealing with the end of his marriage.

To Khloe, which was finalized at long last this fall.

With all of these factors building up and coinciding with the holidays, it's a shocking amount to place on one man's shoulders.

Especially one with a long history with addiction.

In any case, we do send best wishes to Lamar, and commend him for deciding to get help, which is never an easy decision to make.
