Lamar Odom is said to be fighting for his life in a Las Vegas, Nevada, hospital after he was found unconscious on Tuesday in a brothel. The latest reports reveal that Lamar’s health is failing, and that Khloe Kardashian and her family members are by his side during this tragic time.
According to TMZ, Lamar Odom reportedly went off the rails on Sunday night after an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired on E! In the episode, Lamar is talked about quite a bit when in one scene he calls his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, on the phone, and Kim Kardashian scolds her younger sister for getting flirty with him during the conversation.
In another scene, Lamar had called Khloe to tell her that his best friend, Jamie, had died, and Kardashian was seen telling her friends that she was worried that Jamie’s death could send Odom over the edge and that he may spin out of control due to his grief.
In the final scene, Khloe and her friends were at a nightclub when they heard that Lamar was in the establishment and trying to gain access to the same club. Kardashian and her entourage quickly fled the scene as the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star explained she didn’t want to have a reunion with Odom at a nightclub.
It’s being reported that Lamar Odom did not watch the episode himself, but began to receive phone calls about how he was portrayed during the show and then got very upset from there. Until getting that phone call, people at the brothel where Odom was found unconscious claim the former NBA star was “chill” and that he did not appear to be high on drugs or alcohol. He allegedly arrived on Saturday night and ordered a bottle of cognac. When he was found on Tuesday, a third bottle of alcohol was found.
People at the brothel where Odom had been staying claim that Lamar was using an herbal substitute for Viagra, and that he was allegedly using 8-10 of the pills at one time. The drug is known to lower blood pressure and restrict blood flow to vital organs, which is a serious cause of concert for Lamar at the moment.
Radar Online reports that Lamar Odom is fighting for his life, as his lungs have collapsed and his kidneys are allegedly failing. Other rumors, namely those that state Lamar’s heart is failing and that he is possibly brain dead, have also been circulating around the internet.
In the past, Lamar has battled substance abuse issues, and his addiction problems are one of the reasons he and Khloe Kardashian split. However, Khloe and Lamar have continued to have a strong bond since ending their marriage, and many thought that there was a possibility of the two getting back together. When Khloe heard the news of Lamar’s hospitalization, she immediately rushed to his side in Nevada and brought sister Kim Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner with her. Other reports suggest that Khloe’s brother, Rob Kardashian, who has been extremely close with Lamar Odom in the past, and Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, are also on their way to Las Vegas, Nevada, to be near Lamar’s side during this difficult and tragic time.
There is no word on if Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, will be making an appearance at the hospital, as Caitlyn and Lamar also had a special bond while he and Khloe were together.
