Madison Montag and Ryder Cherry have been identified as the women who found Lamar Odom unconscious inside a Nevada brothel, and sources say the two are distraught over the situation.
The former NBA player reportedly checked into the Love Ranch on Saturday, and after days of partying he was found unresponsive on Tuesday. The owner of the brothel, Dennis Hof, told Us Weekly that Odom wanted “to get away and have some fun” when he came to the ranch.
The brothel is legal in Nevada, and famous for being featured on the HBO series Cathouse. The brothel is known for hosting what are known as “Viagra parties,” and has a number of upscale suites. The Daily Mail reported that Lamar Odom had paid thousands of dollars to stay in a VIP suite.
Sources say that Lamar Odom was drinking cognac and taking an herbal Viagra drug, but said there were no signs of other drugs. But other sources told TMZ that Odom had signs of opiates in his system and needle marks on his arms.
It is unclear the exact circumstances of Odom’s collapse, but sources say police do not believe it was a suicide attempt.
“The long term effects of his drug use have taken a toll on his body and the binge this time was too much to handle,” a source told E! News.
Sources said that Lamar Odom had asked to be alone to sleep after several days of partying. After several hours, he was reportedly discovered by Madison Montag and Ryder Cherry, who Hof said are very upset over seeing Odom unconscious.
“It’s terrible. You got people, the girls that found him, out here that are very upset,” Hof said. “I hope he lives.”
Hoff added that the visit may have been a kind of release for Lamar Odom from the intense media pressure he faces.
“He said he was just trying to get away from people so he could have some time to himself without the pressures of being who he is,” Hof added.
There has been a spike in interest in both Madison Montag and Ryder Cherry after Lamar Odom was found unresponsive, but it appears that neither has spoken publicly yet.
Many Twitter followers have also tried to question the pair, looking for some insight into Odom’s condition or how he came to be unconscious, but neither has answered.

Madison Montag herself made headlines earlier this summer when she became the first transgendered prostitute licensed by the state of Nevada.
“Madison is one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen,” Hof said in a press release from August. “We get frequent requests for transsexual women with fully working male genitalia, and I don’t think you could have the best of both of those worlds any better than you do with this petite young beauty.”
Ironically, Hof referenced the Kardashian/Jenner family when making the announcement.
“Her brunette hair and big brown eyes also bear a more than casual resemblance to Kim Kardashian, and that is just one more connection to the Caitlyn Jenner story that has Hof so excited about this new edition to his roster of beautiful women,” he said.
It appears that both Madison Montag and Ryder Cherry were very popular at the Love Ranch. Both were listed as “featured lovers” on the brothel’s website, and Cherry was reportedly the top-booked woman for the last two months, meaning she scheduled the most clients.
