UPDATE: The Nye County Sheriff's Department released further details about Lamar Odom, including that he "was stabilized and transported to Desert View Hospital arriving at 4:16 p.m." but that despite previous reports, the athlete was not airlifted to a second hospital "due to his stature."

The 6-foot-10 basketball player was subsequently transported via ambulance to a Las Vegas hospital. Nye County Sheriff's office also confirmed that detectives conducted an investigation on scene.


Lamar is currently hospitalized after he became unconscious in Nevada, E! News can confirm.

The former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star checked into Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South on Saturday in the town of Pahrump, and was found unconscious in his room by a member of the staff Tuesday morning after days of partying.

We've learned that staff immediately called 911 and followed the emergency operator's instructions to put Odom on his side when he began spitting up liquid.

E! News has learned that he was taking herbal Viagra during his stay at the ranch. However, it is not known if alcohol or drugs were in his room at the time that he was found.

E! News has learned that an ambulance took Khloe Kardashian's ex-husband to the local hospital where doctors intubated him.

Shortly thereafter, the 35-year-old was airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital to be treated.

E! News has learned that he has not yet regained consciousness and the prognosis does not look good for Odom. (TMZ was the first to report the story.)

Back in 2013, less than a week after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, Odom checked into a treatment facility near Los Angeles. Less than 24 hours day later, he checked out of the facility.

Khloe has been open about her ongoing concerns for her ex-husband, and most recently spoke to E! News about how Odom will always be important to her.

"I will never, ever not love Lamar," she told us earlier this year. "I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that."

She continued, "There's nothing I can do. Lamar has to do things in order to change in that aspect, but yeah, if I had my way I'd be married to Lamar in two seconds."

The E! reality star filed for divorce from Odom on Dec. 13, 2013 after four years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. Their divorce was finalized on July 21, 2015.
