Lamar Odom in critical condition after alleged brothel romp

LAMAR Odom spent $75,000 at the Love Ranch brothel.

The 35-year-old former basketball star is currently in a critical condition in hospital after being found unconscious at the Nevada brothel earlier this week following a four-day stay where he partied with prostitutes.

TMZ reports that Lamar was picked up at his Las Vegas home and chauffeured to the ranch where he chose two women to cater to his every need during his stay.

In total, his stay, including VIP suite and access to the prostitutes, cost him $75,000.

Although brothel owner Dennis Hof claimed Lamar only took herbal Viagra and drank cognac during his stay, it has been claimed he had "virtually every drug imaginable" in his body when he was found.

He is reportedly likely to have suffered "brain damage" as a result of a "loss of oxygen but also a possible stroke," and doctors are treating the situation as a non-suicidal "overdose."

A source told E! News: "Drugs were found in his system. [He] had been partying since Friday. He was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucous. They're now having to fix all the damage it has done.

"Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system."
