A rep for Lamar Odom has released a statement as the former NBA star remains hospitalized after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.
“Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar. Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time,” Odom’s longtime publicist and friend, Eve Sarkisyan, told Us magazine in a statement.
Odom, 35, was found unconscious in a VIP suite on Tuesday at around 3 p.m. and authorities were called to the scene. Witnesses say the athlete was found on his side with a “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”
Sources say Odom arrived at the Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South brothel on Saturday and had been taking a herbal substitute for Viagra.
Odom is reportedly in critical condition at a Las Vegas hospital and is breathing with the assistance of machines.
Meanwhile, Odom’s ex-wife Khloé Kardashian is said to be “completely inconsolable and heartbroken” over the news. The reality star cut off all contact with Odom in the summer, but has been “worried about Lamar for a very long time.”
Sources say Kardashian, sister Kim Kardashian-West and mother Kris Jenner have flown to Nevada to be by Odom’s bedside.
