Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom was found nearly dead after days of partying and rushed to a hospital and placed on life-support. Apparently, Lamar was on a three day bender at Dennis Hoff’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada with numerous girls and sources say he was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra.
We’re having a tough time believing that was all Lamar was using … considering his previous drug addictions and his close pals’ overdoses earlier this year, it is not looking good for Odom.
According to a report: “Sources at the Love Ranch tell TMZ … 35-year-old Odom arrived at the Ranch Saturday and was partying with the girls for days. A source at the Ranch said Lamar was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra. On Tuesday afternoon, someone went into Odom’s room and found him unconscious. The person rolled the former NBA star over and saw fluid streaming out of his mouth. An ambulance took Lamar to Pahrump hospital, where doctors intubated him … an indication he could not breathe on his own. We’re told Lamar is being airlifted from the hospital to Las Vegas for more treatment.”
The fact that Lamar Odom can not breathe on his own is very serious, and if he does pull through there is a possibility of brain damage because we have on idea how long he was unconscious for before anyone found him passed out.
So far none of the Kardashians have addressed the reports – and it is unclear whether Khloe will be flying to Vegas to be by her estranged husband. CDL will keep you updated on Lamar Odom’s status and any more details that emerge.
