Lamar Odom hospitalized after being found unconscious at Nevada brothel

Former NBA forward Lamar Odom is reportedly in a “fight for his life” after being found unconscious at Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada.

Per TMZ Sports:

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 [brothel owner] Dennis 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.

The story has since been corroborated by Matt Pearce of The Los Angeles Times, who reports Odom, 35, has been transferred to a second hospital. He could not be airlifted due to his large frame, so he had to be transported by by road. Details on his current condition have been scarce due to privacy reasons.

According to brothel employees, Odom ordered a bottle of cognac over the weekend but still had about a third of the bottle left by Tuesday. They did not see him with illegal drugs, according to Pearce.

UPDATE: A statement from the Nye County Sherriff’s Department on Odom’s status:

A 14-year NBA veteran, Odom rose to prominence in Los Angeles, first as a member of the Clippers, then most notably as Kobe Bryant’s reliable wingman with the Lakers. Odom scored 12,781 points over a career that saw him earn two NBA championship rings in 2009 and 2010.
