#LamarOdom GOES ON HERBAL VIAGRA BENDER: Found Unconscious in Brothel

Screen Shot 2015-10-14 at 9.33.00 AMNow he is one life support. This is one way you don’t want to meet your creator. Hopefully he recoups and finds road to recovery soon.

Lamar Odom is fighting for his life after a weekend of downing herbal Viagra and cognac at a Nevada brothel took a turn for the worse, and now sources are saying that his collapse may have been sparked by Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Following news of Odom’s collapse, his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian rushed to be by his side at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. She was quickly followed by sister Kim Kardashian West and mother Kris Jenner, who was pictured looking distraught outside the hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

TMZ reports that doctors at the hospital where Odom is being treated found cocaine and opiates in his system, as well as needle track marks on one of his arms. That counters previous statements made by Dennis Hof, the brothel proprietor, who says none of his girls saw the athlete taking illicit drugs during hist stay.

Two prostitutes found the former NBA star, 35, unconscious and foaming at the mouth Tuesday afternoon in a VIP house attached to Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch, a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.

‘There was some blood coming out of him. The 911 operator asked them to turn him on his left side and of course he’s a big guy, so it was a big challenge,’ proprietor Dennis Hof told E! News. ‘They did that and a lot of stuff started coming out of him. He started throwing up and they say it was a horrifying sight…Then the paramedics took over.’

Hof said Odom was in high spirits when he picked the athlete up at his LA gated community on Saturday, but says he became ‘bummed’ after receiving a phone call on Sunday.

Sources told TMZ that the phone call was related to his portrayal on the reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians, and that after taking the call he became ‘irate’ and remained inconsolable up until he was found unconscious.

According to E!, the last time someone saw Odom alert was at 6am on Tuesday, when a prostitute woke him up to tell him she was leaving. That source also said that no illicit drugs were found in the room.

Hof says that over the weekend, Odom consumed 10 herbal Viagra pills and two-thirds of a bottle of cognac. Other sources told TMZ though that Odom was popping 8 to 10 of these pills at a time, and that he used regular Viagra as well.

While Viagra is a widely used and general safe drug, it does come with some rare side effects that can cause low blood pressure, heart attack and even stroke.

‘Of course everybody’s thinking, ‘Well, maybe it was drugs.’ We didn’t see any effects of that,’ Hof told E! ‘He was going to sleep every night, and I don’t think he was doing any drugs—although you never can tell. He was doing an herbal Viagra and a lot of it.’

TMZ reports that the 35-year-old is also in a coma and that his lungs and kidneys are suffering serious problems.

Odom had been taken by ambulance to the nearby Desert View Hospital, where doctors intubated the basketball player, but he did not regain consciousness.

He then had to be taken to the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas by ambulance for further treatment because at 6ft 10in he was too tall to be airlifted.

His former LA Lakers team mate Kobe Bryant has also been seen visiting the Sunrise Hospital after leaving his team’s game against the Sacramento Kings early last night.

The medical emergency is bringing even the most estranged members of the Kardashian clan together, including brother Rob who cut ties with his sisters in recent years. Rob lived with Khloe and Lamar during their short marriage, and had a close friendship with his then brother-in-law.

Scott Disick, who recently broke up with the eldest Kardashian sister Kourtney, is also reportedly coming to be by Odom’s side. Meanwhile, Odom’s former sister-in-law Kendall Jenner, in Shanghai for fashion week, tweeted ‘please don’t go’ Wednesday morning.

‘Everyone has dropped everything to get there, a source told People. ‘There are a lot of calls and texts going back and forth as everyone is figuring out how they can help and be there for each other. They are asking their close friends to pray for Lamar, for healing and strength. There is confusion about his condition, and they don’t know the extent of his injuries, but I’ll tell you this: they wouldn’t just drop everything unless it was serious. The family has been told that this isn’t just a minor thing; that it was extremely serious.’

Meanwhile speaking outside the facility, Odom’s personal trainer Fareed Samad said he believed his client has suffered a ‘momentary lapse’ and had previously been working out for three hours a day in a bid to get fit.

He explained: ‘This is all of a sudden. He was doing so well and was looking to get back to fitness.

‘Next thing you know someone calls and tells me he is unconscious.’

Asked why he thought the NBA star had gone to the brothel, Mr Samad added: ‘When he wakes up we will find out.’

Odom arrived at the legal brothel, the Love Ranch, in Crystal over the weekend and ordered a bottle of cognac.

It is understood that a female worker at the ranch last saw him at around 6am Tuesday morning.

Fellow ranch workers Ryder Cherry and Monica Monroe then discovered the basketball player unresponsive around 3pm that afternoon and immediately called for a manager.

Brothel owner Hof told DailyMail.com that an employee saw liquid pouring from his mouth and nose.

He said there were no signs that Odom had been doing drugs other than the herbal Viagra substitute.

‘It’s terrible. You got people, the girls that found him, out here that are very upset,’ said Hof.

‘I hope he lives.’

Hof estimated that Odom had possibly taken 10 of the herbal Viagra substitutes but would not say if the athlete was a regular at the establishment.
