Lamar Odom is in critical condition after being found unconscious Tuesday, October 13, at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada.
The 35-year old former NBA player had been partying with women at the brothel since Saturday. He was by himself with no entourage. Hof told the Los Angeles Times that Odom “wanted to get away from everybody, wanted to have fun.”
TMZ reports that he was was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra. It's not known if that contributed to his condition.
A woman went to the Queens, New York native's room and found him unresponsive. When she started screaming Hof came into the room. He turned Odom over and saw "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth."
Paramedics were called and had to intubate Odom because he could not breathe on his own. Once they stabilized him the plan was to transport him by helicopter to the hospital, but his 6'10 inch frame was too big. Instead, he was taken by ambulance to a Las Vegas facility.
Odom's ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, was said to be en-route to the hospital along with her sister Kim and mom Kris Jenner.
