Lamar Odom, former NBA star and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian, has been hospitalized after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 13).

According to Fox Sports, the former Lakers star was discovered unconscious in a room at the Love Ranch South in Crystal, Nev. after arriving on Saturday (Oct. 10) and partying for multiple days. The 35-year-old was reportedly taken by ambulance to Desert View Hospital in nearby Pahrump.

Nye County Sheriff Sharon A. Wehrly confirmed that Odom was then driven by ambulance to a Las Vegas hospital. TMZ reports that the former basketball star is "fighting for his life," although no official update on his condition has been released.

Odom last played in the NBA in 2013, the same year he and Kardashian divorced after four years of marriage. In August 2013, Odom pleaded no contest to a DUI charge and received three years' probation.
