The basketball star was reportedly having a pretty hard time with Khloe dating again, according to a new report — here’s what we know.

Lamar “had issues” with Khloe dating Houston Rockets player James Harden, 26, a source told People. It was in mid-August that Lamar had reportedly ambushed Khloe at her LA gym, which was around the time she and James were getting serious. It turns out, Lamar really “had a hard time letting go of Khloé,” the source continued. “He is clearly not well.”
In case you missed the tragically sad news, Lamar was found unconscious in a brothel room on Oct. 13. He had reportedly been taking an herbal substitute for Viagara throughout his trip, and when he was discovered, there was liquid running out of his mouth. The former Laker’s star’s heart is failing, and he’s having trouble with other major organs, including his kidneys and lungs, as he remains unconscious and breathing only with the help of a ventilator.
t is being reported that the cause of Lamar’s condition is a drug overdose. “Likely there’s brain damage, but they’re not sure how much,” a source told E! News. “Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system.” The source went on to explain that doctors at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where Lamar is currently staying, are treating the situation as an “overdose.”
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Lamar and his loved ones during this difficult time.
