Dennis Hof is defending his staff members against claims that they pushed Lamar Odom to use drugs during his stay. Multiple women have come forward and admitted to some shady business going on at the brothel where L.O. was found, but the owner is straight-up denying the shocking accusations.
Could Lamar Odom’s alleged drug overdose have been avoided if he chose different prostitutes to spend time with at the Love Ranch South earlier this month? According to the brothel’s owner, Dennis Hof, the ex-NBA star’s choice of women had nothing to do with everything that went down, and he’s publicly sticking up for his staff members who’ve been accused of using drugs.

Several employees of Love Ranch South have come forward to reveal details about what went down during Lamar’s stay, and claim management pushed Lamar toward choosing Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry to come back to his room out of a whole line of women. Interestingly, these two ladies allegedly earned a reputation at the brothel for partying, which is why the other women say they were suspicious that higher-ups seemed to insistent on Lamar spending time with them.
But Dennis has a different story. In fact, he insists that no one on his staff has a history of drugs, and they wouldn’t even be allowed to work there if they did, according to TMZ. He told the site that a background check is done on all possible employees, and if there’s any incidents involving drugs in their past, they won’t be hired.
Some of the women even quit their jobs at the brothel to protest against Dennis, and one came forward publicly to say she believed Lamar wouldn’t be fighting for his life if he wasn’t pushed toward choosing the women he did. So shocking.
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian has decided to call off her divorce from the former Lakers star, but if drugs ever come into the picture again, she’ll be done for good, TMZ reports. We hope she never has to follow through with the ultimatum, but Lamar will obviously need extensive rehab in order to overcome this tragic addiction.
