Ex NBA star,Lamar Odom is fighting for life after falling unconscious at a brothel in Las Vegas, TMZ reports.
The former NBA star was discovered in his room at Dennis Hoff's Love Ranch South on Tuesday by a member of the staff following days of partying with girls and taking a herbal substitute for viagra.
Employees immediately called 911 and followed the emergency operator's instructions to put
Odom on his side when he began spitting up liquid.
The prognosis does not look good for Odom,and his condition remains "critical".
The owner of the brothel where Lamar Odom was found unconscious has spoken out, insisting the star was in "good spirits" in the days before.
Dennis Hof, the owner of Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, where Odom is believed to have been staying, described the moment two girls who worked there had found him.
Hof told People magazine:
"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." We don't know why he seemed a little sad, but he had been in good health and high spirits, laughing and giggling," Hof says. Two girls who work at The Love Ranch, Ryder Cherry and Madison, had seen Odom go to sleep around 6 a.m. in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
"They came back around 3 p.m. and he was unconscious, so they immediately called 911," he adds. 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."
