On Tuesday evening, Lamar Odom was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. However, since news broke of the former NBA star’s hospitalization, many reports have been circulating regarding the state of the reality TV star’s health.
Currently, it’s said that the 35-year-old’s ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, rushed to be at his bedside while he remained in a coma and struggled with heart and kidney problems. Lamar’s rep has since urged followers to disregard many of the “false” reports that are shared about the basketball player’s condition.
Odom’s longtime publicist, Eve Sarkisyan, noted:
“Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar. Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
Still, it’s hard to ignore the troubling news especially as it’s said that the American athlete’s dad, Joe, is asking for prayers for his son’s recuperation.
Apparently, the University of Nevada at Las Vegas alum’s father was seen with his head down and his hands on his knees while in the lobby of his apartment building in Marina Del Rey, CA — mere hours after the news broke of Lamar’s medical incident. How sad.
Nonetheless, Joe revealed that he was doing “okay,” but that his son was “not good.” Joe did go on to note that he needed to take care of some “business.”
Regarding his son’s current state, he later asked for:
“…prayers, just prayers.”
