Lamar Odom Found Unconscious And Battling For His Life

Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Pahrump, Nevada on Oct. 13. Khloe Kardashian’s estranged husband was immediately rushed to the hospital where he is currently fighting for his life.

Lamar Odom, 35, is battling for his life after days of reportedly partying with girls at a brothel. The former NBA player was found on Oct. 13 laying face down and unconscious in his room before he was immediately rushed to the hospital.

The 35-year-old is reportedly in critical condition and is breathing with the help of machines. “What you are hearing about Lamar Odom is true,” a female receptionist at the Love Ranch South said. “Can’t really talk about it further.” It is being reported by TMZ that the 35-year-old was partying hard with the girls at the Dennis Hof‘s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada ever since he arrived to the brothel on Oct. 10. Lamar was reportedly taking an herbal substitute for Viagra during his time there. Dennis spoke out about the incident and told TMZ that someone went into Lamar’s room and found the former NBA player unconscious and faced down.

The person who went into his room rolled the 35-year-old over and saw fluid coming out of his mouth. Quickly after that discovery, the ambulance was called and immediately took him to the hospital where doctors intubated him, meaning the 35-year-old couldn’t breathe on his own. How scary!

NYE Count Sherriff’s Office released the following statement to HollywoodLife.com:

At approximately 3:15 pm on October 13, 2015, a call came into the Nye County Dispatch Center from Richard Hunter, Media Director for Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch, requesting an ambulance for an unresponsive male experiencing a medical emergency at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, approximately twenty miles north of Pahrump, Nevada in Nye County. An ambulance from Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Service arrived at 3:34 pm and the patient, identified as Lamar Odom was stabilized and transported to Desert View Hospital arriving at 4:16 pm. Nye County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Cory Fowles and Michael Eisenloffel arrived and conducted an investigation on scene.

After being treated by the physicians, arrangements were made to transport him by Mercy Air helicopter. However, Mr. Odom was unable to be transported by air due to his stature. He was immediately transported by Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada for further treatment.

Several months earlier, Lamar’s best friend, Jamie Sangouthai passed away on June 15 from an alleged drug overdose and the former NBA player was devastated over his death. Not too long after Jamie’s death, Lamar had another friend, Bobby Heyward, 30 also died due to a reported drug overdose.

Khloe Kardashian, 31, had hoped Jamie’s death would be a wake up call for Lamar. Although the 35-year-old and reality star have taken steps to finalized their divorce, the two are both still legally married. “The Kardashian/Odom case has NOT been finalized. We will probably address their case in three months depending on the workload from May and June, but that’s just a guess. A judge has NOT signed off on their divorce. It’s still waiting to be reviewed by our judgement unit. They are still technically married!” a court services rep tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Our thoughts are with Lamar and his family during this difficult time.
