lamarLos Angeles Clippers star Lamar Odom fell fast asleep during a hearing for his ongoing child custody case in Manhattan court Tuesday, according to a report in the New York Post.

Odom, a native New Yorker, was in court over issues of child support and visitation rights involving two children he shares with his former girlfriend Liza Morales.

The Post reports that the sleeping giant caught the attention of a court officer who woke him from his nap.

“Excuse me, are you okay?” the court officer reportedly shouted at the 6-foot-10 Clipper as he sat on a courthouse bench outside a room where lawyers litigated.

Odom quickly composed himself after the officer told him to sit up.

Odom who is married to Kardashian sister Khloe Kardashian, was romantically involved with Morales for over a decade. During the time, the couple had two children, 14-year-old Destiny and 11-year-old Lamar Jr.
