What Is Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South In Pahrump, Nevada, Where Lamar Odom Was Reportedly Found Unconscious?
Terrifying news involving Lamar Odom Tuesday night. According to reports from TMZ, Odom was found unconscious at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada Tuesday afternoon. Though he was allegedly transported to a nearby hospital and intubated for oxygen, the site's sources report that the basketball star's condition is "not good." (Bustle has reached out for comment in response to TMZ's reports, but has not yet heard back.) So what exactly is Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South, where Odom was allegedly found?
(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.)
According to the establishment's official website (it's very NSFW, so proceed at your own risk), Love Ranch South is a legal brothel with numerous locations in Nevada. The locations provide exactly what it sounds like they do: sexual services for paying clientele. As the site reads: "Most escorts in Nevada are illegal, so please consider the BunnyRanch and LoveRanch the ultimate legal safe sex destinations in the state." It's owned by Hof, who was also the star of the HBO series Cathouse , a reality show that followed those who work at another location of the brothel, Moonlite BunnyRanch.
Hof himself described the establishment in an interview with a local news station in 2013: "It's like a singles bar, but the odds are real good."
Though it's not clear what exactly Odom was allegedly doing at Love Ranch South, TMZ claims that he "arrived at the Ranch Saturday and was partying with the girls for days," and that he was by himself when he arrived.
