Lamar Odom, the former NBA player and husband of reality television star Khloe Kardashian, took cocaine and as many as 10 sexual performance supplement pills that resulted in his hospitalization in Las Vegas. This revelation was made by a dramatic 911 call released Wednesday by the Nye County Sheriff’s Department.

Odom was rushed to a medical facility after he was found unresponsive by staff at a brothel called the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada. The two-time NBA champion was drinking cognac and had been taking Reload, sexual enhancement pills.

Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said at a media conference two employees of the Love Ranch disclosed Lamar Odom was unresponsive when they called 911 at 3:15pm on Tuesday afternoon. Wehrly added they confirmed Odom’s use of cocaine but were not sure if it had continued throughout the weekend and also said they also informed dispatch that he had used up to 10 tabs of sexual performance supplements. The actions of Odom were not ruled by Detective Michael Eisenloffel as a suicide attempt.

Police disclosed that the sexual performance supplements that were ingested by Odom were legal. It was also disclosed that they were obtained from Love Ranch. Dennis Hof, the owner of the Love Ranch, claimed no supplements are offered by the brothel to its visitors. The Love Ranch do advertises “Viagra” parties on its website. Owner Dennis Hof said Odom spent $75,000 there, the price that guaranteed two women would “take care of any of his needs and added he was there “to get far away from something.”

Odom and Khloe Kardashian signed divorce papers this year but the divorce has not been finalized. Therefore, Khloe Kardashian will make medical decisions for the former NBA star.

Mitzi John, an employee of the Love Ranch, made the initial emergency call to 911 and described Lamar Odom as unconscious and in need of an ambulance. Mitzi called a second time frantically and urged the dispatchers to hurry up as Odom had blood coming out of his nose and white stuff coming out of his mouth. The telephone was later on passed on Richard Hunter, media director of the Love Ranch, who described that the ex-NBA player arrived at the ranch on Saturday and had taken the sexual-performance enhancer over the course of three days. It was also stated by the media director of the Love Ranch that Odom had taken cocaine on Saturday but he could not confirm whether Odom had taken the drug since.

The 35-year-old Odom last played in the NBA in 2013 and was waived by the New York Knicks in July 2014. Odom was part of the Los Angeles Lakers championship-winning teams in 2009 and 2010. In 2013, Odom was arrested by the California Highway Patrol in August of 2013 on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs.

In a statement, Excel Sports Management president Jeff Schwartz said Lamar Odom is a long-time member of the Excel family, and we are keeping him in our thoughts and prayers. Schwartz added we are staying close to the situation but have no additional information or comment at this time.
