Lamar Odom In Critical Condition After Being Found Unconscious At A Brothel – Tha Wire [VIDEO]
CNN reports former NBA star Lamar Odom remains in a coma after being found unresponsive Tuesday afternoon at the Love Ranch in Nevada. So we're clear, the Love Ranch is a brothel and it's owned by Dennis Hof. In case you were wondering brothels are legal in Vegas and Hof has taken advantage of that fact, making quite a name for himself in the process. He also owns the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, which was featured in the HBO series "Cathouse" and "Cathouse 2: Back in the Saddle."
Hof told authorities Odom called him Saturday to let him know he was coming to the brothel for a few days. The brothel owner said, "He was having a good time at the ranch and everything was great," but his mood changed Sunday. He added, Odom was "a bit somber" when people started "calling and bothering him."
Fast forward to Tuesday CNN reports two women alerted the site manager, Richard Hunter, that they couldn't wake Odom up when they went to his room about 3:15 p.m. that afternoon. Hunter told the news network the women found the former NBA star snoring loudly and unconscious so "They immediately called 911, and dispatch tells the girls to roll him over on his left side and (he) starts to puke."
The women told 911 operators he was lying in bed on his side, with foam and blood coming from his mouth and nose. Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly told reporters Wednesday the brothel employees also revealed Odom had been using cocaine Saturday and had taken 10 herbal supplement tablets over the course of three days..
Sheriff Wehrly said investigators have obtained a blood sample from Odom, and it was submitted for testing to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police laboratory. She added "At this point, the case is ongoing."
Since word broke celebs from all walks of life have been sending their prayers and well wishes all over social media. His family is urging everyone to continue as he fights for his life.

The 35-year old athlete has been surrounded by family, friends and former teammates like Kobe Bryant. His kids and father, Joe Odom, are with him as well as Khloe Kardashian. Sources say she has not left his bedside since she arrived at the hospital.
Lamar and Khloe married in 2009 and after a rough 4-years, Khloe filed for divorce in 2013, sighting irreconcilable differences.
