While former NBA star Lamar Odom's condition is positively progressing, media outlets are still clamouring to know the exact string of events that led to the 35-year-old athlete being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.
So, who could they run to for the inside scoop? The two prostitutes who were with Odom that night.
According to Las Vegas gossip columnist Norm Clarke, one of the brothel workers was offered $20,000 by a UK newspaper seeking details. However, she had to decline the proposition due to a confidentiality agreement Odom had her and others sign within a day of his stay.
"Odom had all of them sign confidentiality agreements, said Love Ranch brothel owner Dennis Hof. He goes on to claim that Odom is the first celebrity to request such a agreement be signed.
“That’s probably something he learned from the Kardashians [and] that whole Los Angeles scene,” added Hof.
Odom allegedly hired two prostitutes, paying them $37,500 each for his four-day stay. Those same two women found him unconscious on October 13.
Authorities suspect a mixture of cocaine and herbal Viagra supplements may have contributed to his condition.
