Lamar Odom is currently in critical condition after being found unconscious on Tuesday, October 13 at a Nevada brothel. A source told RadarOnline how the former NBA player’s condition “doesn’t look good” and the damage could “have done irreparable harm.” Click through for a timeline of events that could’ve caused Lamar’s downward spiral.
Before Lamar met Khloe Kardashian, he was suspended from the Los Angeles Clippers after testing positive for marijuana in 2001.
Khloe and Lamar proved critics wrong with their solid marriage after a whirlwind relationship. But after two years of marriage, Lamar suffered a devastating year in 2011 when his cousin passed away from a gunshot wound. He was also a passenger in a car that hit and killed a teenager on a bike.
Later in the year, he was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, where he had his worst playing year yet. He had a two-week hiatus before eventually leaving the team for good.
In August of 2013, the father-of-three was arrested for a DUI. His driver’s license was suspended for a year after he refused to take a blood and alcohol test. Later in the month, he completed a short stint in rehab.
In December of that same year, Khloe filed for divorce from her husband.
The Khloe & Lamar star’s best friend Jamie Sangouthai passed away on June 17, 2015. “Jamie Sangouthai died from the bacterial skin infection necrotizing fasciitis, which is an infection that enters the body through intravenous drug abuse,” a Los Angeles coroner told RadarOnline.
Only a week later, Lamar lost his second friend, Bobby Heyward, to drug abuse as well.
Two years after the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star filed for divorce, both spouses signed off on the documents to finalize the end of their marriage in July 2015.
Sources revealed to Us Weekly that Lamar has “been in a downward spiral for while. It’s very scary and sad.”
