American basket ball player, Lamar Odom was rushed to hospital on Tuesday afternoon after he was found unresponsive at a brothel in Nevada.
Reports indicate that, Odom was taken in an ambulance to Desert View Hospital in Pahrump, Nevada, 20 miles from the brothel, where he arrived at 4:16 p.m., PT then was moved once again to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
Dennis Hof who is the owner of the brother told ET-Online that Lamar walked into the establishment over the weekend to have a good time before the sudden incident occurred.
“Lamar came in late Saturday night,” Hof told ET. “He came in by himself — just having fun. [He] wanted to be Lamar.”
“He’s a nice guy,” Hof added. “A gentleman.”
“He was in a great mood, life was beautiful,” Hof said. “But on Sunday, he seemed upset — a little somber. [He was] still eating and eating healthy, but staying alone.”
Hof alleges that Odom was discovered unresponsive by two of the women who worked at the establishment on Tuesday afternoon. The women notified management, who called emergency services.
While Hof claims that Odom had been taking a herbal substitute for Viagra, he alleges that no drugs were found on the scene.
“Police couldn’t find drugs,” Hof said. “We couldn’t find any.”
Odom is currently an NBA free agent. He last played for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013. He is a two-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, and was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2011 after averaging 14.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game at 32 years old.
He was signed and waived by the New York Knicks late last season.
