[UPDATE: People is reporting that reports about camera crews filming while the Kardashian's visited Lamar Odom are false. In fact, sources tell People that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is on hiatus.]
Former basketball player Lamar Odom has been hospitalized after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. The Laker champ and former husband of Khloe Kardashian is currently in a coma and in critical condition, according to TMZ. Sources say that the 35-year-old was partying at Love Ranch and taking an herbal substitute for Viagra, which could have caused or contributed to his condition.
The news has shocked fans and those close to Lamar, including Khloe and Kim Kardashian as well as mother, Kris Jenner, all of whom have been sighted at the hospital. Keeping Up With the Kardashians viewers saw first-hand Lamar’s bond with the family. In a recent episode, it was revealed that Khloe still spoke to her ex-husband regularly to check in on his well-being. Lamar and Khloe’s whirlwind romance, marriage and subsequent divorce were caught on tape for the reality show. Some sources think that it was a recent episode that sent Lamar into a tailspin. Sources tell Radar that the Kardashians have brought a camera crew to the hospital. “It’s [a] sh*t show,” said the source. “The Kardashians are trying to run everything. They walked into the hospital with cameras rolling. It was shocking, but hardly a surprise.” Little sister Kendall tweeted what seemed like a message to him:
Sadly, Lamar has publicly battled drug problems—personally and around him—for years. His father was an addict and his best friend recently succumbed to an overdose. Celebrities have takent to social media to share thoughts and prayers for Lamar Odom.
