LAS VEGAS – An NBA player and reality star suffered brain damage after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, sources told NBC News.

Lamar Odom was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch on Tuesday, the Nye County Sheriff’s Office said.

“He doesn’t look good,” brothel owner Dennis Hof said. “He doesn’t look like he’ll make it and if he does, he won’t be the same.”

The 35-year-old basketball player checked into the legal brothel on Saturday, according to Hof.

He told NBC News that Odom was fine at 6 a.m. Tuesday, but when two women who work there checked on him at 3:30 p.m., they found him unconscious and foaming at the mouth.

Hof claims that Odom had been using a sex stimulant that is sold at the ranch, but that no illegal drugs were found in his suite.

After Odom was found, he was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Sources told E! that medical personnel told them that Odom had multiple drugs in his system.

The sources also claim that Odom suffered brain damage and at least one stroke. They added that he is now on a ventilator.
