Tuesday was a dark day for Khloe Kardashian and her family. E! reports that Khloe is “completely inconsolable and heartbroken” after learning that Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and continues to fight for his life after being rushed to the hospital and intubated for oxygen. He remains in critical condition, and Kris and Kim are reportedly joining Khloe to be by his side.
Lamar was rushed to a local hospital Tuesday afternoon and later transported to a Las Vegas hospital after being found unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada. Us Weekly reports that Lamar allegedly took herbal viagra and was found with “a bunch of ugly stuff came out of him,” according to the brothel owner. He says Lamar told them “[h]e was just trying to get away from people so he could have some time to himself without the pressures of being who he is.”
As incredibly heartbreaking as this must be for Khloe, who told E! she would “never, ever not love Lamar” earlier this year, this shows what kind of person she is, along with her extremely supportive family.
We love you, Lam Lam.
Come back as we learn more about Lamar’s condition.
UPDATE: 10/14/15 1:00 PM ET
According to E!, doctors are treating Lamar’s condition as an overdose, since “virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system,” causing him to suffer “loss of oxygen but also possible stroke.”
It is “likely” he has brain damage after suffering an “ischemic stroke,” a clot preventing blood flow to the brain, often linked to cocaine overdose. A source says he “was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucous.”
Kris Jenner was spotted outside Sunrise Hospital this morning, while Khloe remains inside with Lamar. TMZ reports Kobe Bryant also rushed to the hospital to be by Lamar’s side. Kendall tweeted the following this morning:
please don't go.

According to TMZ, doctors say Lamar’s heart is responding, which is a “good sign of improvement.” Meanwhile, the Kardashian-Jenner family released the following statement while they remain by his side:
“As a family, we’ve decided to hold off on publishing content across our apps while we continue to support and pray for Lamar. “Thank you for your kindness and understanding during this difficult time.”

Reports say Lamar has opened his eyes and communicated “yes” when asked if he wanted to see his kids. Doctors say these motions can be involuntary.
