Lamar Odom, who won two NBA championships while a forward for the Los Angeles Lakers, has been hospitalized in Las Vegas, the Nye County Sheriff’s Office announced.

Odom, also known for having been married to reality star Khloe Kardashian, was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, on Tuesday afternoon. He was transported from the legal brothel to Desert View Hospital in Pahrump.

The 35-year-old Odom was treated by doctors then transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

Authorities didn’t release his condition

Odom was married to Kardashian in 2009 and the two had their own show, “Khloe & Lamar,” which lasted two seasons and 20 episodes. Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013, and two years later the couple signed divorce papers.

Odom played for four teams during his 14 seasons in the NBA and was the Sixth Man of the Year for the 2010-11 season.
