Former NBA player Lamar Odom is reportedly “fighting for his life” after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

TMZ reports the 35-year-old arrived at Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nev., on Saturday and was found unconscious in his room on Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 13). An ambulance reportedly took him to a local hospital, where he was intubated, and he has since been airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital for further treatment.

Odom wed "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star Khloe Kardashian in 2009. She filed for divorce in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences, and their divorce was finalized earlier this year.
