Was Lamar Odom’s alleged overdose really an accident? A new report claims that attempted suicide has NOT been ruled out just yet. How sad.
Lamar Odom, 35, might have unintentionally put himself in a coma while trying to take his own life, claims a shocking new report that reveals police are investigating the incident as a potential suicide attempt. This heartbreaking revelation comes just days after the former NBA star was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel on Tuesday, October 13.
There is an ongoing investigation into whether or not Lamar Odom allegedly overdosed on purpose, claims TMZ. According to Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly, they have yet to find a reason to rule out an alleged suicide attempt in Lamar’s case. This is truly heartbreaking to hear, especially since Lamar would be leaving behind his two young children.
Unfortunately, no matter what the actual cause of Lamar’s comatose state ends up being, he also faces charges if any trace of cocaine is found in his blood. A sample was taken from him on Wednesday, Oct. 14, and will be tested immediately. It’s unclear how long it will take for results to be released regarding Lamar’s blood test.
No matter what happens to Lamar, if his condition doesn’t improve it will ultimately be up to his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, 31, to decide whether or not his treatment should continue. That leaves a very heavy burden on Khloe’s shoulders, not just because she has to decide when it’s time to let her husband go, but also to decide whether or not she’s making the right choice for his children.
Our thoughts remain with Lamar, his family, friends, and especially his children, during this very difficult time.
