Khloe Kardashian’s ex Lamar Odom survival chance is 50/50

Lamar OdomLamar Odom, who was found unconscious by two women at the Love Ranch, a Nevada brothel, on Tuesday afternoon, has a 50/50 chance of surviving after a lethal drug overdose, according to a source to TMZ.

The former Los Angeles Laker basketball player was transported by ambulance to a Los Vegas hospital after he proved to be too tall to go by helicopter. The source – a witness at the hospital – revealed four of Lamar’s organs, including his heart and kidneys, are failing and he has suffered four strokes since arriving.

Lamar had apparently been living at the brothel in a VIP suite that goes for $5,000 to $10,000 per night, depending on how many girls come with it.

According to brothel owner Dennis Hof, who claims to be a friend of Lamar’s, his pal had been taking herbal Viagra and drinking cognac. However, hospital witnesses said Lamar had track marks on one of his arms and doctors have determined he also had cocaine and opiates in his blood, among other drugs.

His lungs were also full of fluid, which is believed to be the result of crack cocaine. He’s currently on dialysis for kidney failure and is so far unconscious and unresponsive.

Lamar and Khloe separated two years ago due to his alleged substance abuse and rumors of infidelity. Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013, but because Lamar was uncooperative, they are still legally married, which means Khloe is legally able to make medical decisions on his behalf.

A source told Entertainment Tonight that Khloe has flown to be by his bedside at the hospital and is “beside herself.”

    Do ya think his over the top lifestyle has anything to do with his situation. There is a sad groupie of so called celebrities that need to self destruct. Better to go young than to fade away as one ages despite the latter being a life experience when one can be contended with their own mark on the world be that big or bigger. Are u reading Lindsay Lohan.
    These people are low on values, self control and anything decent and meaningful. Lamar will be remembered for being a part of the self agrandizing Kardashians, buying the farm in a brothel and not for his NBA achievements.

    Can people please stop the selfrightousness and the judgement.On reflection it is self distructive to our soul when you can’t refect long enough to learn and reenforce good and positive decisions everyone make daily. They impact everyone in this world and the very least we can have is understanding love and sorrow that people make such poor decisions. WE ALL NEED TO LEARN AND CHANGE OUR PATHWAY IN ANY APPROPRIATE WAY.

    Proving once again that money often trumps brains. Zero sympathy for people who have been given every opportunity to do something of value with their lives and chose the path of hedonism and self-destruction. He isn’t the first and he won’t be the last…

    Brutal. Such a mess. Forget the game,the fame, the kardashians, etc. He was an unwell soul now his body matches it. I pray his outcome peaceful no matter what happens. Kudos to those who are genuinely there for him and screw the rest. Not my cup of tea but good luck Lamar.

    Yoooo, I can live at a brothel?!?!?

    He checked into the brothel for a few days – he did not live there (according to TMZ). Was supposedly alone from Monday afternoon to Tuesday morning.

    Sending out prayers for him and his family.

    He is, and has been, a very haunted man. Remember people, he was born into and raised surrounded by addiction. The NBA was an opportunity to rise above it all…or was it? Maybe it was equivalent to giving a toddler a handful of sharp knives and saying “don’t cut yourself!” Lamar was given a doomed life, taught opposite of what was sensible and then thrown to a world full of grand expectations. He doesn’t have the tools, it’s not his fault!!! It’s like expecting a little kid to put on firemans gear and put out a fire! Impossible!!! I hope he’s alright….
