The condition of former NBA star Lamar Odom has further deteriorated, and doctors have told his family that the longer he remains in his current condition the less likely it is that he will recover, sources have told entertainment news website TMZ.
Odom squeezed the hand of his wife Khloe Kardashian on Wednesday night, but doctors believe it could have been an involuntary movement and not an indication of recovery, the website reported. TMZ said four organs, including Odom’s kidneys, are continuing to fail with no signs of consciousness or improvement.
“The doctors are concerned it has been too long that he’s been in this condition and now it’s not looking good,” the source told the website.
Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada on Tuesday and was rushed to a hospital in Las Vegas. Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said on Wednesday that 911 callers had advised that Odom had been using cocaine and up to 10 tabs of sexual enhancer supplements in the days before his collapse, though it remains unclear whether the substances caused his current condition.
Odom was found with blood coming from his nose and mouth along with a white substance, Wehrly said.
Odom is known to have had a prior history with drug and alcohol abuse, which was documented on the reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in 2013. Odom and Khloe Kardashian married in September 2009, but the couple later separated and signed divorce papers in July of this year. The divorce has not yet been finalized, meaning they are still legally married.
