by October 14, 2015

Former NBA star Lamar Odom’s downward spiral continues—according to multiple published reports, Odom was found unconscious following a weekend spent at a Nevada brothel.

The 35-year-old was taken to a hospital, and is reportedly fighting for his life.

Odom’s 14-year NBA career, which included stints with four teams, came to an end following the 2012-13 season.

Get well soon, LO.

Per the OC Register:

According to the Nye County sheriff’s office, Odom was experiencing a medical emergency and was unresponsive when an ambulance from Pahrump Fire and Rescue Service arrived Tuesday afternoon at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Crystal, Nev. […] An ambulance took Odom to the Desert View Hospital in nearby Pahrump on Tuesday afternoon and he was later transported by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.


The brothel’s owner, Dennis Hof, said brothel employees accompanied Odom to the hospital and offered a grim prognosis. […] “They didn’t think he was going to make it,” he said.


Hof said “everything was fine” when two female employees visited Odom in his room at 6 a.m. on Tuesday. At 3:30 p.m., the employees returned to Odom’s room and found him unconscious. […] Odom was bleeding and had vomited, Hof said. “It was terrible,” Hof said. “It was something they’ll never forget.” […] In his three days at the brothel, Hof said, Odom ate well and drank roughly two-thirds of a bottle of Cognac – “not an exceptional amount,” Hof said.
