Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom

The news of Lamar Odom being found unconscious in a brothel in Nevada "isn't shocking," a Kardashian family source tells E! News, "but it is sad."

The former Los Angeles Lakers player was rushed to a local hospital Tuesday afternoon after being found in his room at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in the town of Pahrump.

E! News reported earlier that the brothel staff immediately called 911 and followed the emergency operator's instructions to put Odom on his side after he began spitting up liquid.

Once the ambulance arrived, they transported him to a local hospital where doctors intubated him.

Since then, the 35-year-old has been taken to a Las Vegas hospital to be treated.

Our insider explains that Khloe Kardashian "had cut off contact with Lamar in the summer and she has been worried about Lamar for a very long time."

Back in August, the exes had an unexpected run-in outside of a SoulCycle studio in Los Angeles.

The E! reality star appeared to be startled after seeing her ex approach her, however he broke his silence about the incident in a TMZ video.

"I am not, not, not the person that they're trying to make me out to be—whoever's doing it. I live in Las Vegas...It's hard for me to keep my composure."

The former athlete continued, "To everybody I know that supports me I'm sorry but that's just it. The dog has to fight back. That's it. Y'all won. Y'all beat me down, degraded me. You said I would do everything in the world...Nobody got followed, nobody got hassled, nobody got harassed, nobody got grabbed on, none of that. None of that. Didn't happen."

That was the last time that the former husband and wife were seen in public together.

Khloe 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.
