Former NBA star Lamar Odom fighting for life after being found unconscious

Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom is fighting for life after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada.

Following news of former LA Laker’s alleged overdose, 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.

Doctors are currently treating Odom’s case as a non-suicidal drug-overdose, according to a source at the hospital who spoke with E! News. The source says that doctors found ‘virtually every drug imaginable’ in the 35-year-old’s system. Other sources told TMZ that he suffered multiple strokes is on kidney dialysis and has just a 50/50 chance of survival.

The exact kind of stroke Odom is believed to have suffered involves a blood clot blocking blood flow to the brain, and is often a result of a cocaine overdose, the Daily Mail reports.

Odom is reportedly on life support in a coma, with his heart, lungs and kidneys failing.
