Whoa, Lamar. The ex-Mr. Khloe Kardashian collapsed in a Nevada brothel (classy) from unknown causes and has yet to regain consciousness in a nearby hospital. There is speculation drugs are to blame after many reports of a long (alleged) crack habit over the years that may have been the catalyst for his divorce.
Former NBA star Lamar Odom is reportedly in a Las Vegas hospital after collapsing in a brothel.
Odom, 35, was found unconscious in a room at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, on Tuesday afternoon. TMZ reports that he is “fighting for his life.” The website also states that Odom had a “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”
“We rolled (him) over on his side and some awful looking stuff came out of him,” Hof told Brian Ping, evening news anchor for CBS Radio in Los Angeles.
Hof said Odom was taking a Viagra-like herbal supplement, but denied drugs were involved.
Odom was first taken from the Love Ranch to Desert View Hospital in Pahrump. A hospital spokesperson confirmed Odom had been a patient there, but could not provide details due to patient privacy. However, she said he was then transferred to another facility.
NBC News reports Odom was to be airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas, but the 6’10” former basketball player was too big for the helicopter. Instead, he was taken by ground to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, about 60 miles away.
