According to a press conference and 911 calls released by the Nye County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, Oct. 14, Lamar Odom was bleeding from the mouth and nose when employees of the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nev., found him unconscious on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
A brothel employee named Misty was the first person to dial 911. The distraught female told the operator that Odom had “blood coming out of his nose and white stuff,” and that he seemed “not conscious” and appeared to “not be breathing.” A second employee at the Ranch, Richard Hunter, then dialed 911 and explained that Odom was “breathing regularly” and that he “sound[ed] like he’s snoring a little bit.” Hunter said that the fluid coming out of Odom was “pinkish,” and that while attempting to speak to him, Odom “made a few sounds…but he’s in a deep sleep for sure.” Hunter was then, as previously reported by Us, instructed to place Odom on his left side.
Hunter also told the operator that Odom had been taking “a bunch” of sexual performance enhancement drugs by the name of “Reload” and had done cocaine on Saturday. According to the FDA, “Reload” is extremely dangerous.
Sheriff Sharon Wehrly clarified during the press conference that the 911 calls they received on Tuesday mentioned “he had used up to 10 tabs of sexual performance enhancements over a three-day period,” and that “he was unconscious but breathing and had blood coming from his nose and mouth along with a white substance.”
Wehrly also revealed that they had obtained a search warrant for Odom’s blood at the brothel, and that police had contacted a member of the Kardashian family, who, upon being informed about Odom, was “understandably distraught.”
When questioned by reporters about the current status of Odom, Wehrly was unable to specify. An investigation is ongoing.
Odom was found unconscious around 3 p.m. on Tuesday at local, legal brothel Love Ranch South. Upon discovering the unconscious basketball star, staff called 911. Odom, who was foaming at the mouth, was stabilized by responders and transported to a local hospital before being taken to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where he remained in critical condition.
As previously reported by Us Weekly, “a significant amount of cocaine was found in his system.” Love Ranch South owner Dennis Hof also told Us that Odom had been taking herbal Viagra as well as drinking Cognac, which, according to addiction specialist Brad Lamm, can be a “deadly combo.”
The NBA pro, 35, had been partying with numerous women at the Love Ranch since Saturday, Oct. 10. “He said he was just trying to get away from people so he could have some time to himself without the pressures of being who he is,” Hof, who opened up his establishment to Odom, explained to Us.
Odom’s estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, as well as her sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner, rushed to be by Odom’s side Tuesday night.
Odom has struggled with substance abuse in the past and was currently residing in Las Vegas.
Khloe and the former NBA star tied the knot in September 2009 after only one month of dating. After Odom’s substance abuse issues grew deeper, Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013. The two exes finally signed divorce papers this past July. However, on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Superior Court revealed to Us that the pair weren’t officially divorced because a judge has yet to sign off on their documents.
