Lamar Odom reportedly had cocaine in his system and track marks on his arms when he was admitted into a Nevada hospital on Tuesday. Brother workers found him unconscious in their workplace after he allegedly took herbal Viagra and drank alcohol.
TMZ reports that hospital sources claim Lamar Odom use using cocaine, and it was found in his system upon his admittance into the hospital. Doctors have allegedly determined that Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband did, in fact, have cocaine in his system as well as opiates, and saw track marks on his arms, which are a sign of drug use such as heroin. However, it isn’t clear whether or not the track marks are fresh or from past drug use.
Doctors have reportedly told those closest to Lamar that the fluid found in the former L.A. Laker’s lungs was due to crack cocaine use. While Khloe Kardashian and her family members, such as Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Scott Disick, and Rob Kardashian are all reportedly at the hospital, several of Odom’s party friends allegedly showed up to see him, but were turned away at the door.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lamar Odom had been partying at the Nevada brothel for days, and was found on Tuesday unconscious. While those at the brothel claim Lamar wasn’t using cocaine or any other drugs in his room, 911 was called, and Lamar was taken by ambulance to the hospital. When it was realized that his condition was critical, the former Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was then air-lifted to Las Vegas for treatment.
Rumors are flying that Odom was upset by Sunday night’s airing of a Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode which featured Kim Kardashian scolding Khloe Kardashian for flirting with Lamar during a phone call, Khloe leaving a Las Vegas club when she heard Odom was trying to gain entrance, and Lamar calling Khloe to tell her that his best friend, Jamie, had died. Khloe later told her friends that she was worried that Jamie’s death would sent Lamar over the edge, and that she was worried about him. Perhaps Khloe knew of Lamar’s cocaine use and/or other drug habits.
Sources are revealing that Lamar’s health situation is not good. Radar Online claims that Odom’s lungs are collapsed, and that his kidneys are failing. It’s a very scary situation for everyone involved, and Khloe Kardashian is said to be inconsolable during this tragic time.
Meanwhile, some celebrities are already posting RIP messages about Lamar Odom’s death, which has yet to occur or be reported. Basketball players JR Smith, of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and former NBA star Al Harrington posted RIP messages about Odom, as did rapper Lil Wayne. Of course, fans jumped all over the stars revealing to them that Lamar Odom is not dead, to which Al apologized and asked everyone to continue praying for Odom as he battles for his life after the news of his hospitalization and cocaine use were reported.
The Kardashian family were rumored to be filming their reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians while sitting vigil at Lamar Odom’s bedside, but Gossip Cop reports that, thankfully, those rumors were not true, and that the family is simply there to support Lamar and be there for him in his time of need. The site also claims that Lamar’s drug overdose, likely due to the mixture of the Viagra and cocaine combination, may have caused him to have a stroke, which could lead to brain damage.
The internet has been in an uproar since the announcement that Lamar was hospitalized, and have been sending positive messages to the former NBA star and those closest to him, such has Khloe Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashian family. Odom’s former teammate, Kobe Bryant, is said to have rushed to Lamar’s bedside when he heard the news, and Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade has also been speaking out in support of his friend.
Lamar had many fans from his NBA days, as well as his reality TV days, and his health crisis has shaken them all.
