Liza Morales, Lamar Odom's ex and mother to his children seemingly broke her silence on Wednesday as the former NBA star remains in critical condition.
An unverified account believed to belong to Morales posted a quote from Tupac's "The Rose That Grew From Concrete," on early Wednesday morning: "You see you wouldn't ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its
tenacity. We would all love it's will to reach the sun. Well, we are the rose - this is the concrete - and these are my damaged petals."
Morales lives in New York City and was Odom's longtime girlfriend, before he married Khloe Kardashian in 2009.
Morales and Odom have two teenage children
together, Destiny, and Lamar Jr. The former couple had a third child, Jayden, who died in 2006 of SIDS at just 6 months old.
Sources confirm to ET
that Morales and Lamar Jr. are traveling from New York City to Las Vegas with Odom's aunt, JaNean. It is unclear whether Destiny has already made her way to the hospital.
On Tuesday afternoon, Odom was found unconscious
in a room at the Love Ranch, a legal brothel, in Crystal, Nevada.
Odom was transported to Desert View Hospital, where he arrived at 4:15 p.m. Though arrangements were made to have Odom transported by helicopter, it was determined that he "was unable to be transported by air due to his stature," and instead, was moved to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
A source tells ET that the former NBA star suffered a heart attack and was placed into a medically induced coma. Kardashian has stayed by Odom’s bedside during his hospitalization. Sources tell ET that cameras are not running for the family's reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Although Odom and Kardashian filed for divorce
almost two years ago, ET has learned that the divorce is not yet official, which according to celebrity divorce attorney Vikki Ziegler
, means that Kardashian could potentially still make medical decisions for Odom.
"If they have a medical directive, it would be whoever is assigned to his medical decisions [but] if there is no medical directive, Khloe may have the ability to make decisions on his behalf until the stipulation is signed by the judge," Ziegler told ET. "There may be a fight between Odom's family and her as it relates to what should happen to him medically, and that may become a problem."
While Odom and the Kardashians have had their ups and downs in the press, another source tells ET exclusively
that the Kardashian family "still loves Lamar."
"Lamar is not a bad person, he just has very bad demons," the source says, referring to speculation that Odom had allegedly been facing substance abuse problems in recent years. "When Lamar is good, he's good. But when he's bad, there's no way of getting any worse."
"Lamar is genuinely one of the best people I've ever met, and everyone says that when they meet him," Khloe told Complex magazine in July. "I think Lamar's gonna always be that person [for me] but that's what made it so special. Even if I had it for five years or whatever, it was the best ever and I'm grateful I did. Some people don't get that ever and I had that magic for a long time."
Sources confirm to ET that Odom has also been visited
by Kobe Bryant and Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak during his hospital stay.
