Lamar Odom has been hospitalized for three days and things aren't looking good for the former NBA player. Odom, 35, was rushed to Desert View Hospital in Pahrump, Nevada, Tuesday after being found unresponsive at the Love Ranch South. He was transported to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where, according to reports, he is showing little to no signs of improvement.
TMZ reported that Odom has been "entirely unresponsive" throughout his hospital stay. Sources say he has been given a 50-50 chance of survival and is showing "absolutely no improvement." According to the site, four of his vital organs are failing and he is unable to breathe without assistance. TMZ's sources say doctors seem certain there has been a decrease in his brain activity. It is being reported that the mixture of cocaine and so-called herbal Viagra, a potentially deadly combination, was the most significant contributing factor to his current condition.
"He's in dire straits," a source said of Odom, whose condition is being compared to that of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of singer Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, who died July 26 at 22 after six months in a coma.
Odom was hospitalized after an employee at the Love Ranch, a legal brothel in Pahrump, discovered him unconscious in his room. According to the 911 call, which was released to the public Wednesday, he had "blood coming out of his nose and white stuff." The caller, an employee named Misty, said he was "not breathing" and seemed "not conscious." A second call was made by manager Richard Hunter not long after. He said Odom was "breathing regularly," adding he sounded like he might be "snoring." He confirmed the first caller's claims about the substance coming from Odom's nose and mouth, saying it was "pinkish."
The Daily Mail reported that, prior to being found in his room, the former Los Angeles Lakers player cried while being held by one of the sex workers. He was said to be "freaked out" about his relationship with estranged wife Khloé Kardashian, showing the women photos of them together.
Since his hospitalization, Odom has been surrounded by several members of the Kardashian and Jenner families. Kris Jenner, his estranged mother-in-law, was photographed outside the hospital Wednesday. She appeared upset, walking through the parking lot with her hand on her forehead. It was reported that Khloé Kardashian, who is still legally married to Odom, was struggling to cope with his condition. She was said to be staying by his side.
