'Emergency surgery' for Lamar Odom

2015-10-23 10:35

Los Angeles - Lamar Odom has undergone two emergency surgeries.

The 35-year-old basketball star is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after collapsing at a Nevada brothel last week following a drugs and alcohol binge and TMZ has reported that he has had two procedures due to "chest issues".

Sources told the website that Lamar is "emotional" and his wife Khloe Kardashian is the only visitor allowed to see him.

Meanwhile, Lamar has been threatened with a lawsuit by the owner of the brothel where he was found unconscious.

The owner of Love Ranch, Dennis Hof, claims the basketball star racked up a $75k bill before he was rushed to hospital after a four-day drink and drug-fuelled binge and is asking for payment from the sportsman or his wife Khloe Kardashian.

He told the New York Daily News: "I'm getting a lot of questions from Lamar's accountants. They're requesting the credit card slips and asking, 'Did he sign them?' I sent them his driver's license, the slips and some other stuff.

"I have no problem filing against her or him. Khloe, she's the wife. They're responsible for their debts. Why are they calling me? They need to do the right thing and pay."

And Dennis claims Lamar has offered to pay the sum, telling the owner to split it between two of the ranch's employees, Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry.
