As Lamar Odom remains in a medically-induced coma in a Las Vegas hospital, new details have emerged about the former NBA pro's four-day stay at the Love Ranch, the legal brothel in Crystal, Nevada, where Odom was found unconscious on Tuesday.
Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof spoke to ET about the basketball star’s stay at his establishment.
"Lamar paid $75,000," Hof said. "It was Lamar’s idea. He said ‘I’ll give you two girls for $75,000 the entire time I’m there -- minimum of four days and max of five days."
Hof confirmed to ET that the two women Lamar handpicked to spend time with at the brothel -- Ryder Cherry and Monica Monroe -- were also the women who found the former NBA star unconscious in his suite. He added that the two are doing "terrible" in the days since Odom’s reported heart attack, claiming that "one girl won’t leave her room."
Hof, author of The Art of the Pimp, told ET he wasn't aware of whether or not Odom used drugs while at the Love Ranch, saying that the brothel has a "zero tolerance" policy for drugs. However, he claimed that the women at the Ranch "knew he [Odom] did cocaine and partied in Vegas before coming to the Ranch."
Odom remained in critical condition Thursday. His ex-girlfriend, Liza Morales, and their two children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., have flown in from New York to be by his side. Odom’s estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, is also at the Las Vegas hospital and reportedly has not left his bedside since arriving Tuesday night. While the two signed divorce papers in July, their case is still pending and the split has not been finalized.
"They are devastated," another source close to the family tells ET about the Kardashians' current state of mind. "They have tried so hard to help Lamar with his issues and it breaks their hearts that he could lose this battle. The entire family is pulling for Lamar to make it through this."
