Morales also pointed out that Odom allegedly collected a $40,000 paycheck after participating in a celebrity boxing match against Aaron Carter last month -- something that didn't sit well with the judge.

“If Mr. Odom is in good enough shape to participate in a boxing match, he’s certainly in good enough shape to abide by his obligations to support his children as set forth in the settlement agreement,” Judge Cooper stated during the virtual hearing.

When the judge asked her to testify regarding what she knows about Odom's earnings, she told the court, “He is definitely making income. He just got a check for that boxing match. He is doing a lot of things regarding his brand. He has a CBD company that he works with.”

Morales broke down in tears while describing the stress she has been under, and claims their son is depressed over the situation.

The judge granted a default judgement against Odom, tacking on attorney fees on top of the already existing unpaid child support.

“If Mr. Odom received money from his celebrity match, I’m sure you’d want to get a judgement so you can take action as soon as possible,” Judge Cooper stated.
