Lamar Odom Found Unconscious
Odom, 35, was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada by two of the female employees. They were checking up on the former NBA player after not hearing from him for hours. Their managed called 911 and turned Odom onto his side on the direction of the operator, resulting in “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth,” reported TMZ.
Odom was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Pahrump, Nev., where he was intubated. He was eventually rushed to a Las Vegas hospital to receive further treatment. According to the last updates, Odom remains in a coma with kidney and lung damage and with his heart failing.
Khloe Kardashian has rushed to her ex-husband’s bedside with her sister Kim Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner. The reality TV star is apparently “completely inconsolable and heartbroken,” according to E! News.
Despite ending their marriage due to his ongoing issues with substance abuse, Khloe has maintained her love for her ex. “I will never, ever not love Lamar,” she had said, adding, “There’s nothing I can do. Lamar has to do things in order to change in that aspect, but yeah, if I had my way I’d be married to Lamar in two seconds.”
As of yet, it’s unknown what drugs if any Odom had been taking before he was found unconscious. The athlete, who had a history of crack cocaine abuse, was taking a legal herbal Viagra substitute in high quantities, according to Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof. Hof also revealed that Odom had been consuming alcohol, but claims that neither he nor his employees knew of Odom taking any illicit drugs.
“Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar,” Odom’s publicist Eve Sarkisyan told Us Weekly in a statement. “Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
