NBA free agent Lamar Odom is reportedly fighting for his life after he was found unconscious inside his room in a Las Vegas brothel on Tuesday.

TMZ initially reported that the basketball player fell unconscious on the floor of his room at the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, owned by Dennis Hof.

It added that Odom arrived at the place on Saturday and was seen partying with some girls since then.

"A source at the Ranch said Lamar was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra. We spoke with Hof ... who tells us Tuesday afternoon, a woman went into Odom's room in the VIP suites and found him unconscious," added TMZ.

The same report said that a woman called the attention of the manager of the brothel, who called 911 for help. Prior to the arrival of a medical team, the manager reportedly saw a "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth."

In an interview with NBC News, Hof also said that they discovered that Odom was taking a lot of herbal viagra.

"We called 911 and the 911 told my staff what to do: turn him over on his left side. There was this terrible foaming stuff coming out of him. He was throwing up, a little bit of blood," Hof added.

He also noted that the incident came as a total shock to him. "It's terrible that our business is being disrupted. Here's a guy who just wanted to have a good time and be private, and it's tragic," the brothel owner said.

Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly also said that the basketball player was first taken to the Desert View Hospital prior to his transport to the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

A TMZ source added that Odom's condition is not good and that he has been rushed by an ambulance to Las Vegas to receive better treatment since he was not able to fit inside a chopper.

According to ESPN, Odom is a well-known NBA player since he won two championships with the Los Angeles Lakers last 2009 and 2010.

He last played in the NBA in 2013 and is now a free agent. Aside from his NBA stint, Odom is also the former husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian but the latter filed for divorce two years ago due to "irreconcilable differences."

In an update, TMZ noted that as of 11 pm Tuesday, Odom is still in a coma with his heart, reportedly failing.

"Our source says he is having serious problems with his kidneys and lungs as well. Khloe Kardashian is currently by his side," added the same report. Machines were said to be put in place to assist his proper breathing.
