Lamar Odom Found Unconscious, Remains in Critical Condition

Lamar Odom, the former NBA star and estranged husband to Khloe Kardashian, was found unconscious at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada on Tuesday evening. 


Lamar reportedly called and asked brothel owner Dennis Hof if he could visit the brothel for a few days beginning on Saturday. Dennis agreed and Lamar stayed at Hof’s home which is attached to the brothel.



Hof and other reports initially claimed that Lamar —who has had a long history of drug abuse—-was not under the influence of drugs at the time he was found unconscious by brothel sex workers. However news reports from E! state that “virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system.”



"He was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucous," an insider from E! News claims. “[Doctors are] now having to fix all the damage it has done.”


Immediately after he was found unconscious, Lamar was rushed to Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas. 


He remains in critical condition and is reportedly in a coma after having suffered from an ischemic stroke which E! claims is caused by a blood clot preventing blood flow to the brain.


Sources say that Lamar has suffered from immense brain damage but he has not been pronounced brain dead. 



Sources have also clarified that Lamar’s condition is not a result of attempted suicide but rather the result of a reckless weekend of drug and alcohol binging. 


Though Lamar’s estranged wife Khloe Kardashian has cut communication ties with Lamar , she and her family rushed to be by Lamar’s side in the hospital just hours after the news broke out. 


Khloe is reportedly overwhelmed with grief and has not left Lamar’s side since arriving at the hospital. She has also remained off social media, but her sister Kendall Jenner has tweeted a message directed to Lamar. 


Khloe’s ex brother-in-law Kris Humphries also tweeted a loving message to Lamar.

In addition to the Kardashians, Lamar’s former NBA teammate Kobe Bryant has come to visit him along with Rev. Jesse Jackson 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Lamar Odom and his loved ones at this time. We pray that we hear good news in the coming weeks.  Pull through Lamar.
