Lamar Odom is fighting for his life after a weekend of downing herbal Viagra and cognac at a Nevada brothel took a turn for the worse, and now sources are saying that his collapse may have been sparked by Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Following news of Odom's collapse, his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian rushed to be by his side at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. She was quickly followed by sister Kim Kardashian West and mother Kris Jenner, who was pictured looking distraught outside the hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The medical emergency is bringing even the most estranged members of the Kardashian clan together, including brother Rob who cut ties with his sisters in recent years. Rob lived with Khloe and Lamar during their short marriage, and had a close friendship with his then brother-in-law.
Scott Disick, who recently broke up with the eldest Kardashian sister Kourtney, is also reportedly coming to be by Odom's side. Meanwhile, Odom's former sister-in-law Kendall Jenner, in Shanghai for fashion week, tweeted 'please don't go' Wednesday morning.
Two prostitutes found the former NBA star, 35, unconscious and foaming at the mouth Tuesday afternoon in a VIP house attached to Dennis Hof's Love Ranch, a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.
'There was some blood coming out of him. The 911 operator asked them to turn him on his left side and of course he's a big guy, so it was a big challenge,' proprietor Dennis Hof told E! News. 'They did that and a lot of stuff started coming out of him. He started throwing up and they say it was a horrifying sight...Then the paramedics took over.'
Hof said Odom was in high spirits when he picked the athlete up at his LA gated community on Saturday, but says he became 'bummed' after receiving a phone call on Sunday.
TMZ reports that the phone call was related to his portrayal on the reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians, and that after taking the call he became 'irate' and remained inconsolable up until he was found unconscious.
