Lamar Odom Was Reportedly Upset by 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Episode Before Vegas Incident

While we don't know for sure what exactly happened that led to Lamar Odom's being hospitalized, reports are surfacing claiming that when Lamar learned of his recent portrayal on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, he became visibly upset while at the Nevada brothel in which he was found unconscious.

The former NBA player had previously been described as "chill" by brothel employees, but TMZ reports that after receiving a call about his mention on KUWTK, he allegedly spun out of control.

The episode in question features scenes in which Kim calls out Khloe for being flirty with Lamar on the phone, and Khloe's ex calls to tell her his best friend Jamie had passed away.

Regardless of what actually caused Lamar to descend on a downward spiral, the story is absolutely heartbreaking. He lost two friends to drug overdoses this year, and has been surrounded by a tremendous amount of death his entire life (losing his mother early on, following by his grandmother, and then a child to SIDS) -- it would be easy for anyone in his shoes to fall into a tough mental and emotional space.

With friends and loved ones reportedly flocking to his side in the Las Vegas–area hospital he's being treated in, we sincerely hope Lamar is able to pull through.
