Former NBA player and Khloé Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom is in hospital after he was discovered unconscious. The former athlete is reportedly in a coma and had spent the past few days partying. TMZ reports he was attending a party at a brothel in Nevada when the incident occurred. He was rushed to hospital yesterday afternoon by ambulance after his body was found – he could not be airlifted due to his height, according to the authorities. Various media outlets are carrying quotes from sources which indicate the prognosis is not great. His heart is said to be failing and his lungs and kidneys are also struggling.
The Kardashian family have rushed to be by the 35-year-old’s bedside in Las Vegas as he battles for his life. The family have yet to comment on the incident.
Lamar Odom became even more of a household name in recent years thanks to his marriage with Khloé and his appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The couple separated in recent years and finalised their divorce in July. There were indications the break-up was not entirely amicable after Lamar publicly confronted Khloé outside a SoulCycle class in recent weeks. The exchange was heated and Lamar said in follow-up interviews that he believed Khloé was his “soul mate”.
Our hearts go out to Lamar and his loved ones at this difficult time.
