On Tuesday, former NBA star Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, Hof's Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof told the Los Angeles Times.
Odom was treated by paramedics and stabilized at the scene before being taken to Desert View Hospital; he was going to be delivered to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas via helicopter, but was unable to be transported by air because of his height. Hof said Odom "wanted to get away from everybody, wanted to have fun," and had stayed in Hof's home attached to the brothel. Workers told Hof that Odom was "somber" on Sunday, but "other than that, [was in] good spirits." Hof said that his employees did not see him with any illegal drugs, and he ordered a bottle of cognac over the weekend, but a third of the bottle was still left on Tuesday, the Times reports.
In addition to playing for the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, Odom appeared on the reality shows Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Khloe and Lamar with his former wife, Khloe Kardashian. Us Weekly reports that Khloe Kardashian, along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister Kim Kardashian, is on her way to Las Vegas to be with Odom at the hospital. Catherine Garcia
