It is still unknown what was going on in Lamar Odom’s room leading up to his hospitalization, but the owner of the brothel where he was staying has confirmed that the ex-basketball star was definitely drinking after he arrived on Oct. 10.
Lamar Odom was reportedly in the midst of a four-day bender when he was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South in Nevada. The 35-year-old arrived on Oct. 10, and had been reportedly drinking cognac and taking an herbal substitute for Viagara during his stay.
Dennis Hof, who owns the legal brothel, confirmed that Lamar started drinking cognac after he arrived, and estimated that he took around 10 of the herbal Viagaras in his time at Love Ranch South. What he was doing in the moments leading up to he was found passed out are still uncertain, but two female employees discovered him unconscious during the afternoon of Oct. 13, with liquid oozing out of his nose and mouth.
Lamar was rushed to the hospital and is allegedly only breathing with the help of machines. The former Lakers star is experiencing heart failure, as well as problems with his lungs and kidneys, and his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, 31, has rushed to the Nevada hospital to be by his side. Kris Jenner, 59, and pregnant Kim Kardashian, 34, are accompanying the distraught reality star.
Understandably, Khloe was absolutely “hysterical” when she learned the news of Lamar’s condition, and has been “completely inconsolable” as she grieves at his bedside. Although the 31-year-old filed for divorce in 2013, she has continued to check up on her ex, and admittedly still “loves” and “cares for” him, although she reportedly cut off contact after the summer.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Lamar seemed to be having a great time just three days before heading to Nevada. An eyewitness who saw him at the Lobster in Santa Monica on Oct. 7 told us EXCLUSIVELY that the bball player was in “high spirits” while drinking champagne with two “young women” and one other man. It’s heartbreaking how fast things change.
