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.
