Sad news out of Nevada as TMZ Sports is reporting that Lamar Odom was found unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South and is fighting for his life.
Per TMZ, Odom arrived at the brothel Saturday and partied for days before being discovered Tuesday:
Sources at the Love Ranch tell us … 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.
We spoke with Hof … who tells us Tuesday afternoon, a woman went into Odom’s room in the VIP suites and found him unconscious.
We’re told the woman began screaming for the manager — who called 911.
The manager rolled Lamar over on his side and saw “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”
An ambulance took Lamar to Pahrump hospital, where doctors intubated him … an indication he could not breathe on his own.
The report adds that Lamar was airlifted from Pahrump hospital to Las Vegas for treatment.
Dennis Hof, owner of the brotel, provided some details to the NY Daily News about Odom’s stay:
Hof said it was the first time he’d ever seen Odom there.
Odom, a Queens native, had been at the brothel Since saturday night. A source said he had been drinking during his stay, but not much. A bottle of Cognac was still a 1/3 full.
Hof said Odom had taken “upwards of 10 herbal Viagras.”
“There was obviously a problem,” Hof said. “He was puking a bunch of ugly stuff.”
