When TMZ reported that Lamar Odom was allegedly found unconscious and hospitalized on Tuesday night, many were understandably devastated. The athlete and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian is beloved by many, and so the news that he was allegedly discovered at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South and airlifted to a hospital was troubling, to say the least. As you might expect, many fans reacted to Lamar Odom's reported hospitalization with a mixture of grief and disbelief, and all seem to be hoping for the star's speedy recovery. Bustle has reached out for comment, but hasn't heard back at this time.
(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.)
Although little is known about Odom's current state, if the report from TMZ is accurate, then there's serious reason for concern. According to the site, Odom was found in his room in the Nevada ranch after several days of alleged partying. The TMZ report claims that on Oct. 13, a woman entered Odom's room and found him unconscious, with fluid allegedly streaming from his mouth. He was reportedly taken to a hospital, where he was intubated, and is reportedly being airlifted to Las Vegas for further treatment. Nothing was said as for what might've caused the alleged incident, but a source told TMZ that Odom had reportedly been taking a "herbal substitute for Viagra" during his stay at the Love Ranch.
Since the report's release, many of Odom's fans have taken to social media to express their support for the star. Some of the most moving reactions, below:
