by Stacey Leasca

Lamar Odom, former NBA champion and ex-husband of Khloé Kardashian, was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel earlier today, TMZ Sports reports.

According to multiple sources, Odom arrived at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada on Saturday. The former Los Angeles Lakers star was reportedly taking an herbal substitute similar to Viagra during his visit.

On Tuesday afternoon, an unidentified female found Odom unconscious in his suite with a “mucus-like” fluid streaming from his nose and mouth.

The 35-year-old was transported to Desert View Hospital and intubated, indicating he may not be able to breathe on his own.

Sources say Odom is being airlifted to a Las Vegas-area hospital for treatment, and the outlook is “not good.”

E! reports Lamar Odom is in critical condition, as he has not yet regained consciousness. The prognosis is not good at this time.

Khloé Kardashian is reportedly "completely inconsolable and heartbroken," and planning to fly to Las Vegas later this evening with her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sister Kim Kardashian West to be by Odom's side.

Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom after four years of marriage in December 2013; however, she told E! this year, "I will never not love Lamar."

Witnesses at the hospital report Lamar Odom suffered multiple strokes discovered via MRI.

TMZ reports he is on a 3-5 hour dialysis to treat kidney failure. Odom remains unconscious. Despite unresponsiveness, the hospital has not confirmed if the athlete suffered brain damage from the strokes.

Reverend Jesse Jackson allegedly visited his bedside for three minutes to pray. Jackson's claims Odom displayed “signs of responsiveness” were quickly dispelled by sources.
