Exclusive: Matt Barnes Reacts To Lamar Odom’s Recent Woes



In the midst of Lamar’s recent woes, the NBA veteran’s friends and teammates are wishing the best for the troubled star.

During Diddy’s Boardwalk Empire party on Friday, HipHollywood caught up NBA player, Matt Barnes, to get his reaction on Odom’s recent struggles.

“He is a very close friend of mine, and you know, going through a tuff time right now, family problems and his own problems,” Lamar’s former teammate explained. “I wish him nothing but the best and I’m sure he’ll land on top,” Barnes added.

Lamar reportedly checked himself into a rehabilitation facility last week, just days after being arrested for DUI. According to reports, Odom’s wife, TV beauty Khloe Kardashian, has worked tirelessly to get her husband the help he needs.

The reality star has been taking to Twitter to reveal some of her inner thoughts and feelings.

“I may never understand,” Khloe tweeted on Sunday night.

Earlier last week, Kardashian tweeted, “As much as I wish I were made of steel … I’m not.” She later added, “I’m pretty damn close to it though hehe.”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
