On Tuesday evening, basketball fans and reality TV viewers alike were delivered some shocking news when it was reported by TMZ that Lamar Odom was allegedly hospitalized after being found unconscious. According to the news site, the 35-year-old former husband of Khloé Kardashian was allegedly found at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South, a brothel, in Nevada. For now, details are scarce, but TMZ reports that Odom is "fighting for his life" and is currently hospitalized. Bustle has reached out to a rep for the Kardashian-Jenner family for comment, but has not yet heard back.
(Update: According to a tweet posted by USA Today sports reporter Jeff Zillgitt, the Nye County, Nevada Sheriff's Office released a statement on Odom. Read the entire statement below.)
A source for the ranch told TMZ that Odom arrived on Saturday. Reportedly, on Tuesday afternoon, a woman entered Odom's room and found him unconscious. According to TMZ, a manager at the ranch was made aware of the situation, and allegedly went to the room and saw a "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose [and] mouth" after rolling Odom over.
Additionally, TMZ reports that Odom was taken to a local Pahrump, Nevada hospital and is now being airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital.
Even though the exact state of the Khloe & Lamar star's health is unknown at the time, many celebrity fans have taken to Twitter to share their support and sadness over the reported news. And the shock that non-famous fans are feeling at the moment is definitely echoed by those in the spotlight.
