Lamar Odom Talked About The Pain Of Losing Best Friends Before Collapse

It has been really hard for Lamar Odom to come to terms with the death of Jamie Sangouthai and Bobby Heyward. Before the NBA player reportedly indulged in a weekend long drug bender, he opened up to the brothel’s ‘madam’ about losing his best friends.

Jamie Sangouthai and Bobby Heyward‘s death hit Lamar Odom, 35, really hard. Before the former NBA player was found unconscious at a luxury brothel in Pahrump, Nevada, TJ Moore, the Love Ranch’s general manager, revealed that Lamar was clearly in pain when he talked about the passing of his two best friends over the summer.

TJ, a former nurse who tended to Lamar when he was found unconscious, revealed that the 35-year-old appeared to be very tired but he was in the mood to chat when she picked him up on Oct. 10. “He spoke about losing his mother at a young age. He had lost two more people recently this past summer,” TJ Moore, the Love Ranch’s general manager told Daily Mail. “It seemed to hit him, you could see the pain in his face. But he was pretty mellow, he was calm.”

Lamar pretty much talked to the brothel’s general manager about the losses he’s had in his life. “He referred to someone getting vindictive during his divorce,” TJ went on to say, referring to Lamar’s pending divorce from Khloe Kardashian, 31. “That’s pretty much all he said but he seemed unhappy about how his marriage had ended. He didn’t look like he was going to cry but it was obvious he seemed really tired and needed some rest.” So sad. Lamar’s life has been plagued with tragedy. The 35-year-old also lost his son Jayden at 6 months old to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Unfortunately what was supposed to be a fun weekend for Lamar ended with him being found lying face down and unconscious in his room on Oct. 13. After the brothel staff did everything they were instructed to do by the 911 operative, the two time NBA champion was immediately transported to the hospital when help arrived. Lamar reportedly went on a four-day drug binge which supposedly resulted in him being in a coma. Since he’s been brought in has not changed at all. Khloe rushed to be by Lamar’s side and she hasn’t left him at all.

Our thoughts continue to remain with Lamar and his family during this difficult time.
