Khloe Kardashian’s troubled ex-husband is said to be fighting for his life in hospital

Lamar Odom has been rushed to hospital after being found unconscious at a brothel in Las Vegas, it’s been reported.

The 35-year-old former NBA star and ex-husband of Khloé Kardashian is in a critical condition, according to TMZ, following several days of partying with girls at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch in Nevada.

It’s also claimed that Lamar had taken a herbal substitute for Viagra during his stay.

The 6ft 10in star was too tall to be airlifted to hospital after being found unresponsive at the brothel and so was driven instead.

Khloé, 31, is said to be on her way to Las Vegas along with sister Kim and mum Kris Jenner to be by Lamar’s side.

Dennis Hof has told Mail Online that Lamar was discovered unconscious in his room by two of the female ranch workers and had liquid pouring out of his nose and mouth.

He’s also claimed that Lamar – who has battled drug and alcohol addiction in the past – ordered a bottle of cognac when he arrived at the brothel on the weekend but had not finished it.

There were no signs that he’d taken any drugs other than herbal Viagra, Hof also says.

The sad news comes eerily just hours after Khloé posted a positive message about self-improvement on Twitter linking to a page about self-help books on her app.

‘I’m alllll about self-improvement and these are the self-help books on my bedside table,’ Khloé posted.

Khloé married Lamar in 2009 following a whirlwind romance but their relationship broke down in 2013.

The divorce was finalised this year, despite the fact that Khloé has openly spoken of her continued love for the troubled former sportsman.

Earlier this year she told E!: ‘I will never, ever not love Lamar. I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way.

‘He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.’
