Lamar Odom is being treated in hospital after being found unconscious in Crystal, Nevada, police said.

The former NBA star had to be driven to hospital because he was too tall to be airlifted in a helicopter.

Lamar Odom, 35, has played basketball for Miami, Dallas and the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers.

He also played for the USA team in the 2004 Athens Olympics, winning the bronze medal.

The sportsman’s condition is unknown but well-wishers tweeted their support following the news.

Lamar Odom, who was married to Khloe Kardashian, has long struggled with alcohol and drug addiction.

He was involved in a DUI case in 2013 and was suspended from the NBA for violating its anti-drug policy in 2000.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian were married in 2009 in a ceremony that was taped for E! TV. They divorced in 2013.


Vanessa Bryant, wife of superstar basketball player Kobe Bryant, appears to be having second thoughts on going ahead with their divorce.

Vanessa Bryant, 29, has until Sunday to sign the documents to make her divorce from the philandering LA Lakers star final.

But according to reports, Vanessa Bryant just can’t bring herself to leave the father of her two children.

According to TMZ, Kobe Bryant, 33, and his ex-wife have been spending a lot of time together in mediation, working out the problems that caused Vanessa to file for divorce in the first place back on December 16.

“We’ve learned Kobe and Vanessa are trying to work out the issues that caused her to file for divorce back in December.

“They spend a lot of time together but he has not officially moved back in with her,” a source told TMZ.

California law gives couples a six-month “waiting period” after divorce proceedings are initiated before it can be finalized.

That means the waiting period expires Sunday and Vanessa Bryant would officially be free to divorce the NBA star Monday.

However, that is unlikely, the report said. There would be nothing to stop her from doing so at a later date, though.

Kobe Bryant married Vanessa in April 2001 in Dana Point, California, when he was 21 and she was 18. They have two daughters, Natalia and Gianna. The marriage became rocky soon after when Kobe was arrested for a sexual assault on a 19-year-old employee of an Eagle, Colorado hotel. The case was eventually dropped, but Kobe Bryant admitted he did have an adulterous sexual encounter with his accuser.
