According to TMZ, Lamar Odom was found unconscious this week at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South, a brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. Odom was taken to a nearby hospital and intubated.

The 35-year-old basketball player, who reportedly has a history of drug abuse, reportedly spent several days by himself at the Love Ranch, beginning on Saturday. A source told TMZ that Odom was taking an herbal Viagra substitute.

The brothel’s owner, Hof, told TMZ that a woman went into Odom’s VIP suit and found him unconscious. After calling 911, the manager rolled Odom over and found “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”

Odom is reportedly being airlifted from the hospital in Pahrump to one in Las Vegas.

It is worth noting that TMZ has an uneven record on celebrities’ health.

Update 10:20 pm: A statement from the Nye County sheriff confirms that Odom was hospitalized after being found unconscious at the Bunny Ranch; however, he was transported to the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas by ambulance, not airlifted, because he was too tall to fit in the helicopter.
