Former Laker and reality tv star Lamar Odom was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital Tuesday after he was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel.
According to Dennis Hof, owner of the Love Ranch brothel, Odom was experiencing a medical emergency. Hof told NBC News that Odom was taking an herbal viagara and “he was taking a lot of it.” Hof also stated that no illegal drugs were in Odom’s room.
Odom was found unconscious by brothel workers on Tuesday around 6:30 p.m. ET.
“We called 911, and the 911 told my staff what to do: turn him over on his left side,” Hof said. “There was this terrible foaming stuff coming out of him. He was throwing up, a little bit of blood.”
Odom was first treated at Desert View Hospital but was transported 60 miles by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
In a statement to Hollywood Life, Odom’s father, Joe, thinks his son was drugged.
“Somebody drugged my son. There’s no way he’s down there partying crazy like that. No way,” Joe Odom told Hollywood Life.
It sounds as though is father may be in denial about his son’s drug use.
