Lamar Odom was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital on Tuesday, October 13, after being found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel by two women. Now, his rep says many of the reports about his condition are untrue!
"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, tells Us Weekly in a statement.
The 'Khloe & Lamar' star, 35, arrived at his Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, on Saturday, October 10 but was found unconscious in a VIP suite on Tuesday around 3 p.m. by two unidentified women who later called 911. After responders stabilized the basketball player’s condition, they took him to a local hospital. He was later transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for further care.
"He said he was just trying to get away from people so he could have some time to himself without the pressures of being who he is,” says Dennis Hof, owner of the Ranch to the mag.
We earlier reported his ex wife, Khloe Kardashianflew to his bedside after finding out about Lamar's condition. She was accompanied by sister Kim Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner. TMZ adds that the 31-year-old reality TV star was 'inconsolable' when she arrived Vegas on Tuesday.
Another source tells Us magazine that Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick, who have also been close to him, are also trying to make their way to Las Vegas too. Recent episodes of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' have featured Khloe still in contact with her ex-husband, and saying that she will always care for him.
The pair married in 2009 after just one month of dating. She filed divorce papers in December 2013, and their split was finalized this past July.
