The same website that broke the story about Lamar Odom’s medical emergency in Nevada is reporting that the trigger for the former NBA star’s problems was an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
TMZ.com reports that Odom, who was married to Khloe Kardashian and has been featured on the family’s reality show, received a call during his stay at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South from someone telling him about the show.
“Some of the women who were around Lamar say he became irate, complaining about the way he had just been portrayed on the show,” TMZ reports. “As for what was on the show … Khloe got 2 calls from Lamar. When she got off the phone Kim criticized Khloe for being flirty with Lamar. In another clip, Lamar called Khloe to tell her that his good friend Jamie had died. When she got off the phone she worried Lamar might spin out of control. And in another scene Khloe fled a club after she heard Lamar was trying to get in.”
Odom reportedly remained upset after the phone call, and that’s the last report on him until he was found unconscious at the brothel.
TMZ adds: “Up until getting the call, people at the Ranch say Lamar was ‘chill.’ There was no evidence he had been high on drugs or alcohol. We’re told when he arrived Saturday, he ordered a single bottle of cognac and when he was found unconscious a third of the bottle was left.”
Odom is believed to have been taking an herbal substitute for Viagra, and possibly the actual prescription drug Viagra, which reportedly can cause dangerously low blood pressure.
