Lamar Odom is currently in the hospital fighting for his life after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, TMZ reports.
Lamar Odom Found Unconscious in Brothel
According to the report, Lamar Odom, who is Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, was found at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada after visiting the brothel, which is a place where people can buy the sexual services of paid employees. (Prostitution is legal in Nevada, FYI.)
A source from the Ranch says that Odom was taking an herbal supplement that is allegedly a substitute for Viagra. Dennis Hof told the website that a woman went into Lamar’s VIP room and found him unconscious. The woman screamed for the manager, who called 911.
The manager reportedly rolled Lamar Odom on his side as there was “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.” When the ambulance arrived it took Odom to Pahrump hospital where doctors reportedly intubated him, which is a sign that he could not breathe on his own.
Lamar Odom Hospitalized: ‘It’s Not Good’
Lamar was reportedly air-lifted to another hospital in Nevada and sources reveal that it’s not looking good for the former LA Laker. Odom was allegedly partying at the Ranch by himself without any friends or entourage and is now alone at the hospital. Ranch staffers reportedly wanted to be by his bedside, but the hospital won’t let anyone who is not family in to his room.
Perhaps Khloe Kardashian will fly to Nevada to be by her former husband’s side in his time of need. Meanwhile, this is an extra scary occurrence for a few reasons. Lamar has been known to have substance abuse issues in the past, and has lost two friends in the past year in tragic ways.
Fans are sending well wishes to Lamar Odom during this time and are hoping for the best for the former “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star and NBA player.
