TMZ’s Evan Rosenblum joins FOX Sports Live to discuss the latest on Lamar Odom’s condition after he was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas.
Police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday to the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Crystal, Nevada when NBA and TV reality star Lamar Odom was found unconscious with a “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”
Witnesses reported he was partying with girls at the brothel for days and using an herbal substitute for Viagra. Owner Dennis Hof reported that a woman entered the VIP suites and found him unconscious. A manager at the brothel called 9-1-1. During the 9-1-1 call, the center advised the caller to roll Odom on his side.
Odom was transported by paramedics within 20 minutes to Desert View Hospital. He arrived at Desert View Hospital at 4:15 p.m. Initially Odom was arranged to be transported by helicopter, but it was determined that he was unable to be transported by air due to his stature, and instead, was transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
The brothel is owned by Dennis Hof, and is one of four brothels in the area near Las Vegas and Carson City where prostitution is legal. Dennis Hof is best known as the star of HBO’s “Cathouse” and proprietor of the nearby Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Carson City. The brothels have undergone several name changes for “unique identity branding.”
