A new health update regarding the status of Lamar Odom has been revealed, and sadly, it isn’t good news. As the 6’10” athlete remains in a coma with organs failing, TMZ claims his prognosis is worsening as time goes on. In the websites’s latest health update, it was reported that Odom’s doctors have informed his family, including ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, that Odom’s condition has “deteriorated,” and the longer he remains in his current state, the less likely he is to recover.

While TMZ‘s health update isn’t good news, the site also confirmed that Odom did, in fact, squeeze the hand of Kardashian on Wednesday night. However, by this morning, doctors were saying that it may have been an involuntary movement.
At this point, days after his initial hospitalization on Tuesday, October 13, Odom hasn’t had any positive health updates. Instead, according to TMZ, he has shown “no signs of consciousness or improvement.” Four organs, including his kidneys, continue to fail, and doctors have been clear with the fact that Odom’s failure to get better has significantly reduced his chances at survival. As of Wednesday, he had been given a 50/50 chance of pulling out of his medical crisis.
“The doctors are concerned it has been too long that he’s been in this condition and now it’s not looking good,” a source told TMZ, along with their disappointing health update.
Hours earlier, in a health update by E! News on October 15, it was also noted that Odom hasn’t gotten any better since initially being admitted to the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Tuesday. According to their health update source, Odom remains in “critical” condition.
“No better, no worse. Nothing’s changed. Everyone is praying for a miracle,” the source explained.
E! News‘ source also claimed that doctors have been telling Odom’s family that even if Odom makes it out of his condition with brain function (many have reported Odom possibly being brain dead, or having brain damage, due to his alleged overdose), it will be a very “long term” process of coming out of a coma — if he ever does.
In E! News‘ health update, it was noted that Odom’s situation is “very unpredictable.”

In addition to the ongoing health updates constantly being shared, TMZ also recently shared details regarding Odom’s time at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Nevada, where he allegedly spent a whopping $75,000 in just three days. Odom is believed to have been partying at the establishment with several women, who were reportedly at his “beck and call” since his arrival on Saturday.
Sources at the Love Ranch old TMZ that employees picked up Odom from his Las Vegas home, and drove him to their venue, which was 70 miles away. Upon arrival, Odom was introduced to a lineup of women, and checked into a VIP suite.
Odom’s latest health update comes after E! News revealed that nearly all of the Kardashians have traveled to Las Vegas to be at Odom’s side. On Tuesday, Kardashian, along with her sister, Kim, and mother, Kris Jenner, arrived to Sin City via private jet just hours after news broke of his hospitalization. Then, in the hours that followed, Kardashian’s sisters, Kourtney and Kendall Jenner, arrived to Sunrise Hospital, and Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick were said to be en route, as was Caitlyn Jenner, whose travels are now unconfirmed. Odom has also been joined by his two children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., as well as ex-fiancée, Liza Morales.
