Odom checked into the brothel, Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch in Pahrump, NV, on Saturday (10th October). According to reports in TMZ, Odom was at the brothel alone with no friends accompanying him. Odom had been partying for a number of days and had allegedly taken an herbal substitute for Viagra. It is uncertain if this substance contributed to his current condition.
On Tuesday (14th October) afternoon at approximately 3.15pm, Odom was found in the brothel unconscious. Sources claim one of the workers discovered Odom unconscious and frothing at the mouth. The worker immediately called her manager who found, when he rolled Odom over, "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth."
The 35-year-old was rushed to hospital in Las Vegas, around 70 miles away from Pahrump. The emergency services were unable to helicopter him out of the area because of his height (6’10) but he was taken in an ambulance.
Odom is reportedly in a coma and is on breathing apparatus. His condition remains critical and he is suffering from heart failure. He is also reportedly having problems with his lungs and kidneys.
Odom’s ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, has flown out to Las Vegas to see him. Her mother, Kris Jenner, has also reportedly accompanied her.
The authorities are investigating the scene at Hof’s establishment.
