Word has it that Lamar Odom is in critical condition in a Las Vegas hospital: he’s reportedly in a coma and his organs are failing. His ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, is said to be by his side, along with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner. However, Lamar’s rep is warning people not to listen to all the reports.
Lamar’s rep issued a statement:
Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar. Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
Hmmm… so is his condition not as serious as other reports are claiming? The rep provided no further details. I can see where the family wants people to be optimistic at this point.
Meanwhile, sources had this to say about Lamar:
He’s been in a downward spiral for a while. It’s very scary and sad.”
The source added:
Things are very, very bad and everyone is praying he pulls through. Everyone is rushing to be with him.”
Kobe Bryant reportedly left a Laker’s pre-game early to go to the hospital (the game was in Las Vegas, so he was in town). Lamar played for the Lakers for a couple of years. He is said to have prayed with the Kardashians by Lamar’s bedside.
The brothel owner where Lamar was found unconscious said:
Lamar called us wanting to come out and visit and get away from all the pressure and have some fun. He was having a good time, happy and healthy.”
He did admit that the former NBA player seemed a “little sad” at times during the weekend.
We don’t know why he seemed a little sad, but he had been in good health and high spirits, laughing and giggling.”
He explained that two of the girls at The Love Ranch found Lamar unconscious yesterday afternoon.
They came back around 3 p.m. and he was unconscious, so they immediately called 911. They told them to place him on his side, that’s when they saw a bunch of stuff coming out of his mouth. An ambulance picked him up, took him to a Nevada hospital. My people said to me “It’s not looking good, he might not make it.
“We [told cops] he wasn’t taking any illicit drugs, he did take herbal Viagra, but that’s the thing with addicts you never know because they hide things. He was just trying to have a good time and get away from all the attention.”
Lamar had recently come up on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’: Kim confronted Khloe about staying in touch with her ex-husband, and Khloe admitted that she still cared for him and was keeping tabs on him despite their divorce being finalized. Perhaps that put a bit of a stressful spotlight on Lamar? This whole situation is just tragic.
