Lamar Odom, the ex-NBA star and former husband to Khloe Kardashian, was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel after partying for days while taking herbal Viagra. Reports indicate that legal prostitutes that go by the names Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry were the ones to discover Odom’s body at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch.
The Daily Mail reports that Lamar Odom checked in to Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch on Saturday and spent multiple days partying with the women working at the legal brothel. Odom was allegedly staying in one of the VIP suites when two prostitutes found him unconscious. Brothel workers Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry allegedly entered the room and found Odom in an unconscious state. They immediately began screaming for help and 911 was called at 3:15 p.m.
With Lamar allegedly arriving to the brothel on Saturday, he spent three nights in the VIP suite before he was found and rushed to the hospital. According to the police reports, once 911 was called, the manager rolled Lamar over on his side and reported a “mucus-type fluid” coming from his mouth and nose. The ambulance then arrived and took Lamar to the hospital, where TMZ reports he was intubated, which indicates he was unable to breathe on his own.
Dennis Hof, the owner of the Love Ranch, notes that while staying at the brothel, Odom was taking an herbal Viagra and drinking Cognac. However, he says there were no other drugs in use during his stay. Hof notes that the brothel workers who found Odom are “very upset” and that he hopes the former NBA star lives.
“It’s terrible. You got people, the girls that found him, out here that are very upset. I hope he lives.”
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reported that brothel workers Ryder Cherry and Monica Monroe found Odom in the VIP suite. Cherry notes her job on her Twitter feed and claims that she was designated “booker of the month” at the brothel.

Meanwhile, other reports indicate that Lamar Odom’s father had requested Khloe Kardashian’s presence at the hospital, and she immediately left to be by his side. The Daily Mail claims that it was one of Khloe Kardashian’s reps who picked up Lamar’s belongings from the Love Ranch. The reports note that Khloe was headed to Lamar’s side along with her mother and sister Kim. She was reportedly “completely inconsolable” before departing for her flight to Las Vegas.
Initial reports indicated that Lamar was alive but needed the assistance of machines to breathe. However, new reports from TMZ indicate that the situation for Lamar is much more grave. TMZ claims that the former NBA player is in a coma and that his heart is allegedly failing.
“Lamar is still in a coma and his heart is failing… our source says he is having serious problems with his kidneys and lungs as well. Khloe Kardashian is currently by his side.”
