UPDATE 11:00 pm: Sources tell TMZ that Lamar is alive, but is breathing with the help of a machine. He remains in a coma and in addition to problems he's experiencing with his kidneys and lungs, his heart is reportedly failing. Khloe Kardashian rushed to Las Vegas to be with him and is currently by his side.
This is absolutely heartbreaking.
Lamar Odom has been hospitalized after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, according to TMZ. The site reports that the 35-year-old had been partying at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada since Saturday and was discovered unconscious in his VIP room on Tuesday afternoon. He reportedly had a "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth." A source tells the site that Lamar was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra.
The 35-year-old former NBA star was rushed by ambulance to a local hospital, where he was intubated before being transfered to Las Vegas for further treatment. The site reports that Lamar is "fighting for his life" and cites a source who told them "It's not good."
Concerned fans have taken to Twitter to share their well-wishes for Lamar.
