*RadarOnline.com says it has obtained exclusive surveillance video from the Love Ranch that shows Lamar Odom partying and popping pills in the final hours before he was hospitalized.
Brothel owner Dennis Hof told authorities that the former Lakers star drank from a bottle of cognac while on site. The Nye County Sheriff’s Department also revealed that Odom used both cocaine and herbal Viagra in the hours before his overdose, and the video appears to show him popping the pills.
The footage taken inside the Crystal, Nevada, brothel on Saturday, October 10, shows the former NBA star in mid-bender, the website claims. The footage has been seized by cops investigating the incident, Radar reports.
According to witnesses at the brothel, Odom made a beeline to the bar shortly after arriving on Saturday afternoon.
Radar Online claims its footage – obtained by The National ENQUIRER and Radar as part of a joint investigation – shows Odom at the bar “sitting slumped dejectedly in the background around 5:30 p.m., as a prostitute in a bikini top and thong underwear prepares drinks and shots.”
Radar Online describes the footage as follows:
In one scene, Odom is shown putting his left hand into his pocket and retrieving a baggie. He tips the baggie into his hand and pops a pill into his mouth.
Not long after, employees of the ranch would find Odom unconscious in his VIP suite, covered in what the sheriff called “a white substance” and blood.
He is currently in critical condition at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where the prognosis is grim: Insiders told Radar on Thursday he is clinically brain dead.
