LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Lamar Odom has claimed that he was unaware of taking any drugs on the night he overdosed in a Nevada brothel in 2015 before ending up in a coma on life support. In a recent interview with TMZ, the 43-year-old insisted that he only had one drink that night and was clueless about how the drugs got into his system. 

In an explosive clip from the interview titled 'Sex, Drugs & Kardashians', the Los Angeles Laker claimed that the late brothel owner Dennis Hof, who died in his sleep at his brothel after celebrating turning 72 at his birthday party, wanted him dead and fed him pills. After suffering from a potentially fatal overdose, the former husband of Khloe Kardashian was unconscious days into his stay at the brothel. He reportedly went on to suffer 12 strokes, multiple heart attacks, and kidney failure before making a recovery. On the contrary, the workers at the Love Ranch Vegas in Crystal, Nevada, claimed that Odom had cocaine on his first day there, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In the special broadcast, which aired Monday night on Fox, Harvey Levin questioned Odom on why he ended up with drugs in his system. "I don't know. This is only what I can tell you," the former athlete replied. "I went there. I didn't do drugs that night. I wound up with drugs in my system," he continued. When TMZ’s head Levin interjected to mention that Odom was reported to have done cocaine on the first night at the brothel, he replied, "There was only one night, as far as I was concerned." "I got there, had the drink, and woke up three days later ripping tubes out of my neck, not knowing how I got there, unable to speak or walk," he added. Levin asked whether Odom was sure about not taking any drugs. "As much as I’m positive I’m a Black man sitting in front of you," the player declared.

Odom's statement appears to dispute the brothel workers' claims that the player used cocaine on his arrival at the Ranch. Richard Hunter, a spokesperson for the Love Ranch, said that the former athlete was discovered with "a bunch of white stuff" streaming from his nose along with a "pinkish-red fluid." Hunter also claimed that Odom had taken 10 doses of the supplement ‘Reload 72-Hour Strong Sexual Performance Enhancer for Men’ which works similarly as Viagra.

After initially being in a coma, Odom improved a week after the health crisis. At that time, Odom was married to Khloe Kardashian, who put their divorce proceedings on hold to help ensure that he was treated properly. Their divorce was finalized in 2016 after Odom confessed to consuming drugs with another woman during their marriage. The drug binge reportedly got so out of hand that the woman dialed Khloe to ask her for help. "I’m going so heavy with the drugs that the woman actually gets into my phone and actually calls Khloé like, ‘You’ve gotta come and get him. He’s going crazy, he’s going to kill himself," he told TMZ.
