Lamar Odom Bender Spurred by Mystery Caller — Report
Lamar Odom received a phone call on Sunday that "put him in a somber mood" and may have set off his partying binge, we're learning today.
The NBA star was found unconscious at the Love Ranch brothel in Las Vegas yesterday and is currently fighting for his life at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, with ex-wife Khloe Kardashian by his bedside, along with Kim Kardashian and their mom, Kris Jenner, who appeared grief-stricken outside the medical center.
Brothel owner Denis Hof spoke last night about what Lamar had been doing in the days leading up to the incident, revealing the NBA free agent received a phone call that made him upset.
“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 said.
“I understand he got a phone call and was a little bit somber on Sunday afternoon for a while," the cathouse owner added.
“Then he shook it off and was having a good time, the girls were cooking for him. They had a blast with Lamar," he tells NBC News.
Though there were reports Lamar had been on a drug and drinking binge, Hof says they didn't see anything like that at the brothel.
“The only thing we know for sure is he was taking an excessive amount of herbal Viagra. Not to say he wasn’t doing drugs but no one saw anything like that and they saw no effects.”
The police did not find any drugs in the 35-year-old’s bedroom.
Khloe and Lamar have had a tumultuous relationship since they separated in December 2013. Their divorce was just finalized this past July.
In August, the NBA star “ambushed” Khloe on her way to a 7am SoulCycle class in Beverly Hills, screaming at her and demanding that she talk to him, TMZ reported at the time.
The reality star is believed to have cut off all contact with him since then, which Lamar was struggling to accept.
