Is Lamar Odom Brain Dead? #RIPLamar and #RIPLO Trending on Twitter
After the discovery of Lamar Odom unconscious at a Nevada brothel yesterday (October 13), the internet has been ablaze with conflicting reports about his condition and the circumstances of his accident.
As far as we know, the basketball star (and estranged husband to Khloe Kardashian) is still alive, though it sounds as though he’s in dire shape.
But rumors about him being brain dead abound, especially with a source inside Las Vegas’s Sunrise Hospital telling E! Online “virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system” and brain damage is likely.
Not helping to clarify matters are the hashtags currently trending on Twitter, like #RIPLamar and #RIPLO.
Even some celebs seem to have been duped, like fellow NBA star J.R. Smith and rapper Lil Wayne.
RIP LO damn man I can't believe this... If this isn't a sign I don't know what is!!! This life is so much bigger then basketball an any other sport! I can't imagine what he was going through but I know he could have had some better people in his corner! Life doesn't care how much money you made or how man championships you have when its time to go it's time to go! Some people say "it's easy to be happy you have millions!" With all the money that comes trust an believe it comes with just as much heartache! Learning a balance is key never get to high on the highs an never get to low on the lows! #RIPLO
