Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom, was reportedly found unconscious at a brothel in Las Vegas on Tuesday afternoon.
According to US reports, the 31-year-old reality star who got married to the former NBA star in 2009 along with mom, Kris Jenner, and sister, Kim Kardashian, rushed to be by Odom’s side as he fights for his life.
The 35-year-old Lamar was reportedly taken to a Las Vegas hospital by ambulance on Tuesday afternoon after plans to airlift him by helicopter were scrapped because of his 6’10” frame.
Lamar is believed to have been at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, USA when he fell into unconsciousness.
He was reportedly found by two prostitutes working at the ranch, and Hof described how they had seen him fall asleep at around 6am.
“They came back around 3 p.m. and he was unconscious, so they immediately called 911,” Hof said.
According to Mail Online, the two workers were called Ryder Cherry and Monica Monroe.
TMZ reported that Lamar was at the ranch for a number of days partying with girls and taking an herbal substitute for Viagra before he was found unconscious in a VIP suite with fluid streaming from his mouth by one of the women he was partying with.
The gossip website went further to say he was breathing “with the assistance of machines,” adding that he “is having serious problems with his kidneys and lungs”.
Khloe and Lamar split in 2013 after four years of marriage.
The couple who tied the knot after just a month of dating had been separated for several months before the Kardashian beauty filed for divorce in December that year.
It was rumoured at the time that Odom was struggling with substance abuse and had cheated on his wife.
Odom previously went missing two years ago after a drug-fuelled bender at a Los Angeles hotel.
