Khloe Kardashian, sister Kim and mum Kris Jenner have all rushed to be by Lamar Odom’s side as he fights for life, according to US reports.
The 35-year-old is said to have been taken to a Las Vegas hospital by ambulance on Tuesday afternoon after plans to airlift him by helicopter were scrapped because of his 6’10” frame.
Khloe, who wed Lamar in September 2009, voiced her fears for her the former athlete just months before this tragic turn of events.
Following the death of his best friend Jamie Sangouthai, 37, who passed away in June, Khloe said: “I’m really on high alert for Lamar, because anything, I think, will set him to spiral, and that’s kind of the last thing I want for him.”
The ex-NBA star is believed to have been at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, when he “fell into unconsciousness”.
Lamar was at the ranch for a number of days partying with girls and taking a herbal substitute for viagra, TMZ quoted sources as saying.
Hof reportedly told TMZ 35-year-old Odom was found unconscious in a VIP suite with fluid streaming from his mouth.
Hof also told the Daily News: “This is serious. He might not make it.”
Khloe and Lamar split in 2013 after four years of marriage.
The couple – who tied the knot after just a month of dating – had been separated for several months before the Kardashian beauty filed for divorce in December that year.
It was rumoured at the time that Odom was struggling with substance abuse issues and had cheated on his wife.
Odom previously went missing two years ago after a drug-fueled bender at a Los Angeles hotel.
