Kris Jenner is struggling to cope with former son-in-law Lamar Odom's sudden hospitalization. The "Khloé and Lamar" star was rushed to Desert View Hospital in Pahrump, Nevada, Tuesday after being found unconscious at Love Ranch South, a legal brothel. He has since been transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian, is said to be joined by her sister, Kim Kardashian West, and Kris at his bedside.
New photos of the 59-year-old Kardashian momager, posted to TMZ, suggest she's having a hard time coming to grips with what's happened to Odom, 35. The photos show her looking upset as she walks in a parking lot outside the medical center. According to the gossip site, Kris, Kim, 34, and Khloé, 30, arrived in Nevada via private jet Tuesday. They are said to have flown out just two hours after news broke that Odom had been found unresponsive inside the house of prostitution and was "fighting for his life." Khloé, who was married to Odom for three years, is reportedly "distraught" and sitting by her ex's bedside.
Few details are known about the events leading up to the former basketball star's hospitalization. TMZ believes, however, that a recent episode of E!'s hit series "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" served as the catalyst to his alleged bender. The site reports that Odom received a call about the episode, during which his former wife was shown having a phone conversation with him, much to Kim's disapproval, on Sunday at Love Ranch South. Sources say he appeared angry after the phone call, complaining about his portrayal on the show. TMZ claims he was noticeably upset up until he was discovered unconscious. Sources added that until he received the call, he seemed "chill." The site adds that, while there is no evidence that drugs or alcohol were involved, Odom did order a bottle of cognac upon arrival. TMZ is reporting that just a third of the drink was left when he was found.

Odom's longtime agent, Jeff Schwartz, released a statement regarding the situation Wednesday morning. He shared with Twitter followers that he, along with the rest of his team at Excel Sports Management, would be praying for Odom. Schwartz said they were "staying close to the situation," but did not want to comment any further. Eve Sarkisyan, Odom's rep, has also come forward, saying that his family and friends are extremely worried about him. She asked that fans ignore "unofficial" stories circulating about her client and respect the privacy of Odom and his family as they attempt to get through this.

The former NBA star was found unconscious inside a suite at Love Ranch South in Pahrump, west of Las Vegas. According to reports, he was discovered by an unknown woman, who said she found him face down. When she turned him over she noticed a mucus-like substance coming out of his nose and mouth. An ambulance was called and Odom was quickly taken to a hospital to be treated. Upon further assessment doctors decided to airlift him to another facility, but were forced to seek other options due to his stature. He is now at Sunrise Hospital, where he is surrounded by those close to him and being monitored and treated. It has been said, however, that it "doesn't look good."
