Lamar Odom Reported to be “Brain Dead”

Lamar Odom, the ex-NBA star and former husband to Khloe Kardashian, was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel. He was rushed to the hospital, then rushed to another hospital via airlift.

With Lamar allegedly arriving to the brothel on Saturday, he spent three nights in the VIP suite before he was found and rushed to the hospital. According to the police reports, once 911 was called, the manager rolled Lamar over on his side and reported a “mucus-type fluid” coming from his mouth and nose. The ambulance then arrived and took Lamar to the hospital, where TMZ reports he was intubated, which indicates he was unable to breathe on his own.

It was first reported that Lamar Odom’s father had requested Khloe Kardashian’s presence at the hospital and she immediately left to be by his side. The Daily Mail claims that it was one of Khloe Kardashian’s reps who was the one to pick up Lamar’s belongings from the Love Ranch. The reports note that Khloe was headed to Lamar’s side along with her mother and sister Kim. She was reportedly “completely inconsolable” before departing for her flight to Las Vegas.

Initial reports indicated that Lamar was alive but needed the assistance of machines to breathe. However, new reports from TMZ indicate that the situation for Lamar is much more grave. TMZclaims that the former NBA player is in a coma and that his heart is allegedly failing.

“Lamar is still in a coma and his heart is failing… our source says he is having serious problems with his kidneys and lungs as well. Khloe Kardashian is currently by his side.”

Some outlets compared the situation to Bobbi Kristina Brown, the late daughter of Whitney Houston, who in January was found unconscious in her home. Brown remained in a coma for several months, reportedly with no signs of brain activity, before passing away this summer.

Sources close to Lamar Odom said they were worried about his behavior lately, with some saying that he was partying in his new home in Las Vegas and spiraling into addiction. Odom had very publicly struggled with drugs in recent years, with addictions blamed for ending both his marriage and his NBA playing career.

Lamar Odom’s drug addiction was reportedly a major reason for his split with Khloe Kardashian. She and other members of the Kardashian family are reportedly en route to the Nevada hospital where he is fighting for his life.

Sources claim that Lamar Odom was on even more of a downward spiral after his divorce from Kardashian and the recent death of his friend Jamie Sangouthai, who passed away on June 15 of an alleged drug overdose. Friends say Lamar was devastated at his friend’s death, and not long afterward another friend, Bobby Heyward, also died of a suspected overdose.

Reports indicate that legal prostitutes that go by the name Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry were the ones to discovery Odom’s body at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch.
