Tuesday, former NBA star Lamar Odom was rushed to a Nevada hospital after he was discovered unresponsive in in the VIP suite of a popular brothel. According to NBC News, he was discovered at approximately 6:30 p.m. ET.
Love Ranch owner, Dennis Hof, told reporters that Odom had been taking “herbal Viagra,” but no illegal substances were discovered in his room.
“We called 911, and the 911 told my staff what to do: turn him over on his left side,” Hof said. “There was this terrible foaming stuff coming out of him. He was throwing up, a little bit of blood.”
Odom was rushed to Desert View Hospital and was later transported by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. Specifics surrounding the incident and Odom’s current condition are unclear at this time. Los Angeles Daily News reporter Mark Medina reports that Odom’s former teammate Kobe Bryant left the arena after Tuesday evening’s Lakers game to be with the troubled ex-athlete.
Hopefully, Lamar pulls through.
