We’ve woken up to some tragic news from the Kardashian family today, as Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, has been found unconscious, and is in a critical condition in hospital, according to reports.
The ex-NBA basketball player had been partying in Nevada, and was later found unresponsive.
According to a news report by BBC News, the 35-year-old had to be driven to the hospital, after finding that he was too tall to be airlifted into a helicopter at the scene.
Lamar and Khloe had a whirlwind romance and got married quickly, before going through a very public break-up. It was only this year that their divorce was finalised, but she has always been very open about keeping in touch with the basketball star.
The sports star has previously played basketball for Miami, Dallas and the LA Lakers and Clippers. He has also represented the US in the 2004 Athens Olympics, where he took home the bronze medal.
E! News have reported that Khloe is, understandably, ‘completely inconsolable and heartbroken’ and rushed to his bedside in order to be there for him.
The report adds that Lamar has not yet regained consciousness and remains in a ‘critical’ condition.
According to TMZ, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner have rushed to the Nevada hospital.
Earlier this year, the 34-year-old Kardashian sister told the publication, ‘I will never, ever not love Lamar…. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.’
She added, ‘There’s nothing I can do. Lamar has to do things in order to change in that aspect, but yeah, if I had my way I’d be married to Lamar in two seconds.’
Since the news broke, there has been a tirade of tweets of well-wishes and support for him.
We really hope he pulls through.
