This isn’t particularly surprising news, but it is sad news. Lamar Odom is in hospital fighting for his life after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel on Tuesday, it’s been reported. Apparently he’d been partying for days at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South – on his own, I should mention – and had been taking “herbal viagra” and obviously having sex with women working at the brothel. It was Tuesday afternoon when he was found unconscious by a member of staff.
Sources at the Love Ranch tell us … 35-year-old Odom arrived at the Ranch Saturday and was partying with the girls for days. A source at the Ranch said Lamar was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra.
We spoke with Hof … who tells us Tuesday afternoon, a woman went into Odom’s room in the VIP suites and found him unconscious. We’re told the woman began screaming for the manager — who called 911. The manager rolled Lamar over on his side and saw “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”
An ambulance took Lamar to Pahrump hospital, where doctors intubated him … an indication he could not breathe on his own. We’re told Lamar is being airlifted from the hospital to Las Vegas for more treatment.
Our sources tell us, “It’s not good.”
Later updates posted – one as of 11pm PST last night – say that Lamar is still in a coma and that his heart is failing, and he’s got problems with his lungs and kidneys, as well, Khloe Kardashian is by his side, but something tells me this isn’t going to turn out well.
Lamar has been spiraling for a while. He comes from a background rife with substance abuse on his dad’s side, and has been struggling with this for a while. Such a shame to see what drugs can do and how they can destroy lives. Lamar had a great career and a lot of promise, but it looks like this may beat him.
