Lamar Odom's Teammates And Other Celebs Are Praying For His Recovery
On Tuesday, authorities confirmed former NBA star and ex-husband of Khloé Kardashian Lamar Odom was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.
The incident reportedly happened at Love Ranch, a legal brothel owned by Dennis Hof, whose other property, the Moonlite BunnyRanch, was the subject of HBO's documentary series “Cathouse.”
Hof claims before Odom passed out, he had taken a substantial amount of “herbal Viagra,” but according to reports, no illegal drugs were found in his room.
Hof told reporters,
We called 911, and the 911 said 'roll him on his left side'... And he started throwing up all kinds of stuff. Foaming. Throwing up all kinds of things.
Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly says Odom was first treated at Desert View Hospital in Pahrump before being driven 60 miles to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. NBC News reports the original plan was to helicopter Odom from Desert View to Sunrise, but he was too big to fit in the helicopter.
TMZ is reporting he is in critical condition, saying he still is in a coma with serious damage to his heart, kidney and lungs.
Khloé is allegedly at the hospital and by his side while this all is going on.
Various former and current NBA players as well as full organizations have sent their wishes to Odom.
