Lamar Odom on His Death Bed after Being Found Unconscious at a Brothel
Pahrump, Nevada, October 13 – Ex-basketball superstar Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a brothel. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors are fighting to keep him alive.
According to TMZ, Lamar’s heart is failing, while the ex-basketball player is also facing kidney and lungs failure after being found at a ranch which was turned into a brothel for wealthy clients. A fluid of some sort was coming out of his mouth and nose and his state was obviously extremely bad. Paramedics couldn’t transport him via helicopter due to his height (6 ft 10), so another ambulance car came to pick him up.
Machines are keeping him alive.
“What you’re hearing about Mr. Odom is correct,” said the receptionist at Dennis Hof‘s Love Ranch South where the 35-year old was found lying face down. It is reported that he was partying hard with some girls ever since he arrived at the Ranch on October 10. Furthermore, he was taking herbal substitutes for Viagra during his stay. After being found by an employee at the ranch, an ambulance was immediately called and Odom was rushed to Desert View Hospital where doctors incubated him, after which he was transported to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada, for further treatment.
Dennis Hof, the owner of the brothel said: “We called an ambulance immediately and they told my employees to turn Mr. Odom to his left side. It was horrible, a mucous-type liquid was coming out of his mouth. He was vomiting, there was even some blood.”
Basketball was the brightest thing in his life.
Lamar didn’t have it easy. His father is an ex-heroin addict, while his mother died of cancer when Lamar was only 12, so he was raised by his grandmother. Odom worked hard and followed his dream and became one of the best basketball players in the league. During his career he played for the LA Clippers, Miami Heat, LA Lakers and Dallas Mavericks, winning the NBA Championship 2 times during his spell with the Lakers.
He fathered 3 children, but in 2006 his youngest son Jayden died from SIDS while sleeping in his crib in NY.
His love life was full of ups and downs – in 2009 he married Khloe Kardashian, but when their marriage didn’t work out he was left devastated. This year the divorce was to be finalized, which he took really bad, and what made things even worse was losing two of his closest friends. His best friend Jamie Sangouthai (37) passed away in June due to drug related health issues, and just a couple of days after him, Bobby Heyward (30) also passed away due to a reported drug overdose.
Khloe is hysterical and doesn’t know what to do.
His soon to be ex wife, Khloe Kardashian (31), was completely shocked to hear that Lamar is fighting for his life. A source said: “She just found out and is hysterical and doesn’t know what to do.” Khloe hoped that the death of his best friend would serve as a wakeup call for Lamar, but instead it’s he who is now fighting to survive. Even Khole, seeing how things are going, recently admitted that she fears that Lamar would “spiral out of control” after losing his best friend.
Khloe hopped on a plane along with Kim and mom, Kris, in order to be beside Lamar in his hour of need.
Many of his ex teammates are shocked as well, and they are sending their messages of support.
1. Wade twitted “PRAYERS all the way UP for my brother Lamar Odom!!!”
Paul Pierce also left his message of support: “Prayers go out to Lamar Odom and his family please God anything u can do to help him thru this.”
Our prayers go out to Lamar and hopefully he will win in his struggle to survive.
