Metta World Peace is speaking out about how Lamar Odom’s kids, Destiny and Lamar Odom Jr., are allegedly being forced to wait “in line” to see their father, as celebrities flock to his bedside.

Even though just last week World Peace applauded Kobe Bryant for visiting Odom at the Las Vegas hospital where he is currently staying, he now feels the celebrity visits have gotten out of hand. While well intentioned, World Peace believes the hospital visits are coming at the expense of Lamar’s children, who he claims are “waiting in line” to see their father.

“This is nothing against Khloe [Kardashian],” World Peace reportedly said told the L.A. Daily News. “This is for the celebrities that are coming to see Lamar. They should know they’re taking time away from Lamar’s children.”

Because of Odom’s current condition, the former basketball star is only allowed a certain number of visitors at a time. With Kardashian refusing to leave his side, there is little room left for many others to see him. World Peace has refrained from checking in on his one-time teammate and childhood friend, fearing his visit would prevent Destiny and Lamar Jr. from seeing their dad. And he hopes other celebrities will follow suit.

“The only Kardashian that needs to be there is Khloe,” World Peace said. “Not every Kardashian needs to be around. They need to keep it simple, so Lamar’s children can see him whenever they want to see him. They’re waiting in line to see their own father.”
