Lamar Odom’s Collapse Down to Dehydration

Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom collapsed at a Los Angeles nightclub over the weekend (04-05Nov17) because he was dehydrated, according to his representative.

The former basketball player was caught on camera slumped over in his VIP booth at Bootsy Bellows club in Los Angeles in the early hours of Sunday morning and the person who took the video told TMZ Sports that he had been drinking for several hours before he passed out.

However, Lamar’s publicist has since issued a statement saying that the sportsman had simply been affected by an earlier workout session.

Lamar is doing great,” she told Weekly. “He was dehydrated last night and it was really hot in the club. He had an intense workout earlier yesterday and did not get enough fluids.”

The video showed security guards rushing to help Lamar, who seemed to have fallen from the banquette of his VIP booth onto the floor, and was slumped over with his head on the table. They pulled him back onto the seat and he appeared dazed.

The incident comes just over two years after Lamar was hospitalized after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada in October 2015. He was in coma and placed on life support and suffered 12 strokes and two hearts before miraculously recovering.

The 38-year-old has a history of substance abuse issues and he checked into rehab in December (16) to “take time to focus on himself”.

His rep said at the time: “He is dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle and being the best father he can be to his children.”

Lamar was married to Khloe from 2009 until she filed for divorce in 2013. However, she called off the divorce while he was hospitalized and it was eventually finalized in 2016. He has two children from a previous relationship.
