Poor Lamar Odom. He and his wife Khloé Kardashian were in New York on Thursday to attend the funeral of his cousin, who was murdered last week. Odom hired a car service to chauffeur him around New York. While Odom was in the car his driver was involved in a collision with a motorcycle. The impact of the collision propelled the motorcycle rider into a 15-year-old pedestrian who died from his injuries the following day.

The Odoms were scheduled to be in the wedding of Odom's former teammate Shannon Brown who married R&B singer Monica last weekend. But news of his cousin's death caused Lamar and Khloé to miss the wedding.

A 15-year-old boy has died from injuries he sustained in a NY car crash involving a vehicle carrying NBA star Lamar Odom ... the boy's family has confirmed to TMZ.

e boy's family tells us ... the boy sustained major head injuries in the collision.

The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital ... and emergency surgery was performed in an effort to save his life ... but the injuries proved to be too severe ... and the boy died the following day.

A funeral for the boy took place earlier today.

    :(

    Tomorrow is never promised. Freak accidents happen everyday. This is very sad.

  • MzDimplez1123

    Wow.. That poor family. I feel bad for Lamar too

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    Thanks for posting this Sandra. We were just talking about this! I hope this kids' family finds peace!

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    BTW - I smell a lawsuit coming!

  • bbclivy

    Hope Lamar paid for the funeral! Seems like he has a black cloud over him all of a sudden...damn kardasians!

  • http://youtu.be/8A2Mfu0Yc5Q chibytex

    Khloe is a good wife and she'll be there to comfort Lamar...he'll proably need some counseling after this to be ready for next season...(if there is a next season)

    I'm sure that Lamar is gonna look out for that family too. I know money cant bring the boy back...but it'll surely help ease some of the pain...

  • ELove

    Just in the past 3 days here 4 people have DIED from Motorcycle Accidents and 2 were Females... Just TOO MANY Unnecessary ACCIDENTS involving Deaths have been happening LATELY -- IMO

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    @ ELove....THAT'S SAD! I hate to hear things like that!

  • mrsloveleigh

    sad story all around. although he is in no way responsible for the accident I bet he looks after that family. After watching their show I really like he and Klohe

    Ok so Lamar wasn't driving right? So if anyone gets sued it would be the car company correct? Just asking..

    & may the young man RIP & God comfort his family :pray:

    Sad story (prayers for fam and the deceased)

    Lamar wasnt driving but who wants to take bets that the fam will pin it all on him.

    Is the chauffeur an independent contractor or does he work for a provider? If a provider, I wonder how their liability works.

    When in doubt... the lawyers will probably just sue em all (the whole kitten kaboodle). If you throw $hit against the wall, somethings bound to stick.

  • candibfly

    i would think it's just like those bus drivers that get in accidents and ppl sue the company or driver or if a tax gets into an accident they sue the taxi cab driver or company not the passenger :shrugs:

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    THIS IS REALLY SAD TRAGEDY AFTER TRAGEDY FOR ODOM... PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE YOUNG MAN AND HIS FAMILY... JUST SAD :cry:

  • ELove

    Celebrity RARELY has a Veil of Protection regarding Lawsuits... If the Driver was driving The Celebrity to a destination of the Celebrity's Choosing THEN more than likely SOME LAWYERS are going to try & get that family to SUE -- JMO :coffee:

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    i hope the family does not come for lamar.. they cant right? i mean he wasnt driving so how can he be responsible? I have also watch they show and lamar has a big :heart: example- his daddy! so im sure he will help the family financy not that makes things anybetter but the financial burden is going to be big :(

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    If Gloria Allred (or whatev her name is) get on this case, she'll try & make a way to sue Lamar!

  • blunt

    May the kid rest in peace... Sounds like the chauffeur was tailgating... Last time I was in nyc all i could do was smh at how they drive....... too damn reckless nypd needs to up the ante when it comes to traffic violations.... I'm used to cars stopping for pedestrians them mfers don't care it's definitely crossing at your own risk and now this :nono: . I was going to a funeral and the church that did it was having another funeral for a member who got side swiped from a vehicle a couple weeks earlier when she was leaving service. This lady was just trying to cross da road!

  • candibfly

    some lawyer will prob try and convince them to throw lamar into the suit too

  • blunt

    IMO Lamar shouldn't be involved in the case at all I mean that's why the limo service should have commercial auto insurance

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r7wHMg5Yjg Fayla aka JuicyFruit

    they'll find a way to drag Lamar into it..don't make it right tho :no:

  • Redeemed777

    2 teen deaths related to yet again another so-called celebrity.

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. When it rains it pours, good and bad. One never knows when God will call one home. That's why I'm hoping for this buyout so I can retire and start anew. Life is what u make it til its time to go. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

  • Terri B

    They can try but they sue Lamar for this, he is not liable for that vechile. If anybody can be sued, it is the company the driver works for/the owner of the vechile. But it was never said who's fault the accident was anyway.

    And I know this is a pointless question but I can't help but wonder anyway, Why was a 15 operating a motorcycle? Half of the grown men that ride them barely know what they are doing, those things are nothing to be played with.

  • Bigbadwolf

    Why was a 15 operating a motorcycle?
    ___________________________________

    i don't think the 15 yr old was on the motorcycle. It was a chain of effect. Lamar's car his a motorcycle and the impact caused the motorcycle to his the boy. It's sad :crying:

    Ok, I got it now. Thanks

  • metnwt

    RIP little man! Now regarding the so called "good wife" that Khloe is! These skank Kartrashian's make me ill! And all of you praising them are just as ill! How many brother's do you have to lose to the Becky's to see they are just not feeling the sista's! It makes me sick!:cuss:

  • Terri B

    There's plenty of brothers feeling this sista, so maybe it's you? I don't have time to monitor who and what irrelevent people are doing. For every brother that dates outside his race, there are a lot more that don't, so I'm not focused on them. You can't control what you like and what turns you on. Some brothers like women in general, and don't care what race you are, how I can I be mad at that?

  • Nhere

    Wonder if they will reconsider their publicity whoredom. :thinking

  • ELove

    @metnwt SAID
    Now regarding the so called “good wife” that Khloe is! These skank Kartrashian’s Hold UP (STOP IT...) :rofl:

  • metnwt

    Well I've been happily married for 20 years, so I'm not checking for any other brotha because I got a winner! I would love to have the same thing for my young neices coming up! But I guess they are too dark for the black men of today! I will have to encourage them to try and date out side of there race! Oh Well! :shrug:

  • Terri B

    You're going to advise them to date outside their race just because a small percentage of our brothers date outside their race? And why would you encourage them to do the exact same thing you don't like our brothers doing? Is it okay for women and not men? I know that it seems like a higher percentage because of what we see on TV, but I can guarantee you that there our way more men that don't date outside their race then there are men who do, and you have those that do both because they don't care what the color as long as she's a contender, she'll be looked at. If you found your black prince, so can they. One brother don't stop the show.

  • metnwt

    Well I guess I may be a little older! But from what I see, in and out of the media, is when our men become successful, the last thing they want is a dark skinned sista on their arms! She must be light, bright and of course white! I have beautiful intellegent girls coming up and no future prospects for them! You may think that the playing field is leveled, but my dear it is not! And as long as the Reggie Bush's; Lamar Odoms; Kobe Bryants; Old arse Russell Simmons and the likes keep pushing our women aside, it becomes like a drug, very addicting for others to try!

  • Terri B

    I'm not by any means saying the dating field is level, i'm just saying, I don't care what the Kobe's, Lamars, and the Reggies doing because they are just one in a million. You are absolutly right, there are some that will push the sisters aside or just our dark sisters aside, but there are a lot more who wont. So let the Lamars and Kobe's do them, they are not my focus. And BTW, I'm no young gun myself.

  • metnwt

    Cool! Agree to disagree. It's healthy! And I hope you are right! Because the state of the black community is in jeopardy by more plagues then a little! The brotha's dissing the sista's is just the tip of the iceberg! I would love to strengthen the race with more beautiful black babies then to dilute it with watered down airheads!
