Khloe and Kardashian family at bedside
By: N.W.A. Street Diva Debra Patterson
Former basketball player and ex-husband of Khole Kardashian, Lamar Odom, was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday. The “Khloe & Lamar” reality star was discovered in his room at the Love Ranch in Crystal on Tuesday.
According to TMZ.com, employees quickly called 911 and were instructed to put Odom on his side. After placing him on his side, he began to vomit.
“We called 911, and 911 told my staff what to do: turn him over on his left side,” Dennis Hof, owner of the brothel, said. “There was this terrible foaming stuff coming out of him. He was throwing up, a little bit of blood.”
Authorities wanted to airlift Odom to a hospital for treatment, but the 6-foot-10 championship ball player was too tall to fit in the helicopter.
Hoff said Odom was taking “a lot of herbal Viagra but no illegal drugs were found in his room.”
It is well-known that Odom has a history of substance abuse.
In August 2014, he was arrested for driving under the influence. He later checked himself into a treatment center, but checked out within 24 hours.
TMZ reports that Odom is currently in a comma with heart failure.
Sources say he’s having serious problems with his kidneys and lungs. The outlet confirms that Khole is by his side. The couple’s wed in 2009 after a highly-publicized whirlwind romance, but after some rocky roads, was divorced in July.
Former teammate Kobe Bryant reportedly left last night’s game to be by Odom’s bedside.
Odom prognosis doesn’t look good, but we believe in the power of prayer.
Let’s hope this former star makes a full recover, takes control of his life and shines again.
By the way…..Brothels are legal in Nevada in counties with fewer than 700,000 people, according to state law.
