Before Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada, he went on a three-day party binge of endless drugs, sex, and alcohol. But he wasn’t just doing this for fun — during his stay, Lamar confessed to the prostitutes he was partying with that he was a ‘broken man.’
As Lamar Odom, 35, fights for his life after being found unconscious on Oct. 13 at The Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, a source revealed that he said he called himself “broken” during his stay. While his time at the brothel was filled with partying, the insider suggested that sadly Lamar was attempting to find a way to forget about his inner struggles.
Lamar, who is currently in a coma at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, was found by two of the Love Ranch’s prostitutes, Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry, choking on his own mucus in his room. Although it is uncertain if Monica or Ryder spent time with Lamar before finding him unconscious, an insider told Daily Mail that the ones Lamar did party with were aware he wasn’t doing so well mentally. The source revealed that Lamar told the prostititues he was “a broken man,” adding, “he thought his life was a mess and he had no direction.”
This is so sad. Lamar has had a relatively rough year, between his divorce to Khloe Kardashian and the sudden loss of two friends, but clearly his tough times were taking a much bigger toll on him than anyone could’ve imagined. In fact, the source added that Khloe — who rushed to be by his side at the hospital — was a major reason for his “broken” feeling.
“He was all freaked out about Khloe, fixated on her,” the insider said. “He was showing the girls photos of them together and wanted to pour his heart out. He wasn’t there just for sex; he needed a shoulder to cry on, companionship. He seemed lost.”
Since being taken to the hospital, it has been determined that Lamar had used several different types of drugs, including cocaine and an herbal substitute for Viagra, as well as an entire bottle of Cognac while he was at the brothel. His case has tentatively been determined as an accidental overdose, but there is an ongoing investigation by the Nye County Sherriff’s department on whether Lamar’s overdose was a suicide attempt, according to TMZ.
As a result of the amount of substances in Lamar’s system, four of his major organs are failing, and he has been given a 50/50 chance to live by doctors. Even though Lamar was apparently in such a dark place prior to being hospitalized, we hope he is able to pull through this tragic incident. Our thoughts remain with Lamar and his family and friends during this difficult time.
