Shocking Reason Why Lamar Odom Had Drug Overdose

Reports reveal what may have caused former Los Angels Lakers star Lamar Odom to fall unconscious on his weekend getaway at the Love Ranch South in Nevada.

Richard Hunter, media director of Love Ranch South, shares how one of the women who had found Odom unconscious in his room came running down the hall, screaming. When Hunter saw Odom, he immediately called 911.

One of the women divulged that Odom had consumed cognac during his stay and had taken a “s***load” of an herbal substitute for Viagra. He apparently took around 10 in the 3 days of his stay.

The woman further revealed that the former NBA star had admitted to taking “a small amount of cocaine” before he arrived on Saturday.

Witnesses at the hospital where Odom remains unconscious claim to have seen track marks on one of his arms. Doctors have determined he had cocaine and opiates in his system, and the fluid found in his lungs was the result of crack cocaine use.

Sources at the hospital state 4 of Odom’s organs, including his kidneys, are failing. An MRI showed he endured multiple strokes and has heart problems as well.

What may have caused Odom’s spiral out of control could have been revealed in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The episode recaps two phone calls made by Odom to Khloe Kardashian, his ex-wife. Khloe’s sister, Kim, accused her of being flirty with Odom, whereas in another clip, the second phone call reveals Odom informing Khloe of the death of his childhood friend. Khloe then expresses concern over the possibility of her ex-husband spinning out of control.

In another scene, Khloe is shown to be distraught after finding out Odom was in the same nightclub as she was.

Sources from Love Ranch South claim Odom was upset over how he was portrayed in the episode, saying he became irate and distressed until he was found unconscious in his room.

Odom’s family has been informed and his father, Joe, joins Khloe, Kim, and their mother Kris Jenner at the hospital where Odom is currently confined in.

Things were rocky for years between Odom and his father — being at odds over the Kardashians and Joe’s addiction problems — but the two eventually made peace with one another.

It is revealed that Khloe has been making medical decisions for Odom as the two are apparently still legally bound together. Due to an extreme backlog in family law courts, their divorce — filed in December 2013 and finalized in July of this year — will not come into effect for at least another 2 months.

The detective in charge of the investigation revealed that the Viagra substitute that Odom had been taking was obtained at Love Ranch South. The origins of the cocaine remains unknown.
