Sheriff: ‘Lamar Odom Used Cocaine And Sex Drugs During Brothel Stay’
Former basketball star Lamar Odom reportedly used cocaine and sexual enhancement drugs prior to his hospitalization, according to the brothel workers who found him unconscious.
Odom was taken to a hospital in Las Vegas after he was found unresponsive in a suite at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, on Tuesday afternoon. He has been fighting for his life ever since, surrounded by friends and members of his family – including members of the Kardashian family, which Odom was previously married to Khloe Kardashian.
During a press conference at the Nye County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, Sheriff Sharon Wehrly detailed the 911 call from the Love Ranch, which alerted emergency service officials to Odom’s dire condition, explaining he had used cocaine on Saturday when he arrived at the brothel. The sheriff also revealed the caller reported Odom took an undetermined sexual enhancement drug over the three days of his stay.
She told the gathered media that when paramedics arrived to the scene, Odom was “unconscious but breathing”, adding, “He had blood coming from his nose and mouth along with a white substance.”
She revealed investigators are currently processing toxicology tests, as Odom remains in critical condition at the hospital and added he could face drug charges if the tests come back positive for cocaine or other illegal substances.
His estranged wife Khloe, her mom Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, have all been spotted at the hospital in the 24 hours since Odom’s arrival.
Kris broke her silence on Wednesday and asked her social media followers to send good wishes to her son-in-law, writing, “Please pray for Lamar #ourfighter.”
Multiple reports suggest Khloe flew Odom’s ex-girlfriend Liza Morales, their two children, and the athlete’s father Joe Odom out to Las Vegas to be by his bedside.
