Lamar Odom the former husband of TV reality star Khloe Kardashian is in hospital after he was found unconscious Tuesday (13 October) at a Nevada brothel. The Nye County Sheriff's Department said the 35-year-old was taken to the Desert View Hospital in nearby Pahrump before being transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

In a statement, the sheriff's office said it received a call at about ***.15pm local time to Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada about 70 miles from Las Vegas that there was an unresponsive man requiring ambulance. Attempts were made to airlift Odom to Las Vegas but the 6-foot 10 inch basketball player was too tall for the helicopter.

He was then driven by ambulance to the hospital. TMZ said that both Khloe and Kim Kardashian are reported to be heading to the hospital to see Odom, together with their mother Kris Jenner.

TMZ sources said that Odom arrived at the ranch on Saturday and was partying for several days. A woman had gone into Odom's room in the VIP suite and found him unconscious on Tuesday. Although there are no official confirmation on his condition, TMZ said Odom is said to be "fighting for his life."

Odom and Khloe married in 2009 after a whirlwind romance but in 2013, Khloe filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalised in July this year.

In an interview with E! News recently, Khloe said how Odom will always be part of her life. "I will never, ever not love Lamar. I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that."

She added: "There's nothing I can do. Lamar has to do things in order to change in that aspect, but yeah, if I had my way I'd be married to Lamar in two seconds."

Odom was born in Queens, New York, where he was raised by his grandmother after his mother died of cancer when he was 12. His father was a drug addict. He has a daughter, Destiny and a son Lamar Jr from a previous relationship with Liza Monzales. Their six month old child Jayden died of SIDS in 2006.

Pretty sad story, the News here is that he had being doing cocaine, had taken some OTC "Viagra like" drug, and suffered some brain damage and probably a seizure. He is currently on life support.

I remember when he played with the Lakers (I'm a Laker fan), and went to Dallas afterwards; everything seemed to go down after that for whatever reason.

I really liked Lamar. I liked he and Khloe's thing. Short but seemed more real than the other's relationship. Oh well... Wish him the best. And kudos to Khloe for still keeping it real

Fine player I liked seeing. Naïve, so naive

This a like a sub conscious suicide attempt. ?

He went into overdrive after he had given 'all' yet it seemed he had lost all

Update:

- Saturday, he was reportedly infuriated by the way he was portrayed on Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” TMZ reported.

- The program featured two phone conversations between Khloé and Odom, with his estranged wife worrying that her spouse might spiral out of control after the drug-related death of a friend.

- Two days later, he was found near death inside the private VIP accommodation with 1,500 feet of space and three bedrooms. Reality show regular Odom was found Tuesday afternoon by the same two blond hookers he had invited to hook up inside a private villa at the Love Ranch Vegas in Crystal, Nev.

- Odom has suffered a kidney failure, but doctors remain hopeful

- has 50-50 chance of surviving after a three-day drug binge left the helpless hoopster in a coma

- He ingested “every drug imaginable,” a Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center source told E!

- Odom, had cocaine in his system and needle marks on one of his arms, according to TMZ

- According to a 911 call released by officials, the retired hoops star took at least 10 doses of “herbal Viagra”— a sex-boosting substitute for the prescription drug — and had cocaine on him when he arrived Saturday

- brothel employees could face charges if it’s found they obstructed the investigation or provided any illegal drugs. Hotel reps deny that Odom took cocaine with several prostitutes.Says he came with his own drugs.

- Odom could be charged with drug possession, police said.

My prayers to you Lamar. Sad.

Update:

Lamar says 'hi' to Khloe

Odom was conscious and able to say "Hi" to estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, a source with knowledge of the situation said Friday.

It was unclear whether Odom remained conscious or how long he was awake.

Odom is not in a coma and is using a mask to breathe, but has serious damage to his vital organs, Kris Jenner, the former NBA star's mother-in-law, told "Access Hollywood" on Friday.

Odom has been at a Las Vegas hospital since Tuesday, after being found unresponsive at a brothel.

Earlier a source close to the situation told CNN that Odom, 35, improved a "tiny bit" during his third night at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.
