VIDEO-Ex-NBA star Lamar Odom found unresponsive at Nevada brothel: sheriff |

Former NBA star Lamar Odom has been hospitalized after being found unresponsive at a Nevada Brothel. Officials from Nye County Sheriff's office said he'd suffered a "medical emergency" at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada which is about 80 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The former husband of Khloe Kardashian was stabilized at the scene and prepared to be airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital but at 6 ft 10 inches tall, his stature made it impossible to transport him by helicopter. The celebrity website TMZ reported that Odom had been at the brothel for days and a woman there found him unconscious in his VIP suite. The owner told the Los Angeles Times that herbal Viagra had been found in the athletes room. The investigation into what caused the emergency continues.
