One Big Happy Family

Before there was Khloé, there was Liza Morales. Odom’s ex-fiancé was his high school sweetheart and the mother of his children, Destiny, 15, Lamar Jr., 11, and Jayden, who died at six months of sudden infant death syndrome in June 2006. According to Morales, the basketball star never dealt with the death of Jayden, which led them to split.
