The Latest on Lamar Odom's Condition

Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel on Tuesday, and since then, there have been nonstop reports about his condition and the possible causes for his hospitalization. Fortunately, Lamar seems to be in a better state and was transferred to an LA hospital on Monday.

  • Tuesday, Oct. 13: TMZ reported that Lamar was found unconscious at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, NV. Lamar had reportedly arrived at the Ranch over the weekend and "was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra." He was found unconscious in a VIP room around 3 p.m. PDT. The manager of the brothel told TMZ he saw a "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth." Once an ambulance arrived, Lamar was taken to Desert View Hospital. Medical personnel attempted to move Lamar to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas by helicopter, but at six feet, 10 inches, he was too large for the aircraft and had to be transported by ambulance. Kylie Jenner, who was in the middle of her live stream around 6 p.m. PDT, abruptly ended the show once news of Lamar's condition surfaced.

Lamar's ex Liza Morales and their children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., traveled to Las Vegas to be with Lamar. Kim Kardashian, who is pregnant with her second child with Kanye West, postponed her baby shower while the family dealt with Lamar's condition.

According to later reports from
People, Lamar is still breathing with the help of a ventilator. A source said that he's "on his last leg," and that everyone is "preparing for the worst."

According to Us Weekly, Khloé reached out to brothel owner Dennis Hof. "[We politely asked] him to respect Lamar's (and Khloé's) privacy during this difficult time and refrain from talking to the press," her rep said in a statement. "This is a very painful situation, as I know you are aware, and the idea that anyone would use it to seek publicity is really sad."

ET Online reported that Lamar "has opened his eyes and been able to communicate," while other reports maintained that his condition had not improved and that he is still in a coma. In the afternoon,

E! Online reported that Lamar woke up from the coma and had spoken to Khloé, while Us Weekly revealed that he opened his eyes. Later that evening, Liza took to Twitter to express her joy about Lamar's signs of improvement.

The TRUTH is God is good. All the time. Continued prayers for my children and their father. Thank you for the support and well wishes.
