A Nevada sheriff says a person who called 911 to report that Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a brothel said the former NBA star had been doing cocaine and had taken sexual performance enhancers.

Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly says an employee for Love Ranch told 911 dispatchers that Odom was found unresponsive with blood coming from his nose and mouth.

The caller said Odom had been doing cocaine and had taken up to 10 tabs of a sexual performance enhancer over three days.

Odom is on life support at a Las Vegas hospital after being found unconscious Tuesday at the Crystal, Nevada, brothel.

Lamar Odom's grandmother says his father is with him at a Las Vegas hospital, and family members are praying for the former NBA star after he was found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel.

Florence Odom spoke to The Associated Press in a phone interview Wednesday from her New York City home. She says she's waiting for an update on her grandson's condition from his father, Joe Odom.

In tears, the grandmother said her Catholic family is praying for her beloved grandson. She described him as "so kind and sweet and gentle."

"You could always reach him and talk to him, and I don't understand what's going on," Florence Odom said. "I know he's in God's hands."

Michael Mercer of North Carolina also praised his famous cousin and wished him a healthy recovery.

Lamar Odom is on life support after being found unconscious Tuesday at a Crystal, Nevada, brothel.

1:15 p.m.

Friends and former colleagues are showing their support for Lamar Odom, who remains on life support after being found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel.

Television network E! says it's praying for Odom, a former star of the "Khloé & Lamar" series who also appeared on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." The network says it's not filming the Kardashians or Odom during this ordeal.

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat team, where Odom played one season, and fellow NBA star Shaquille O'Neal took to Twitter to express their support. O'Neal used the hashtag "MyHeartHurts."

New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher became close friends with Odom while playing alongside him with the Lakers. He says athletes and entertainers often are judged by choices that aren't representative of who they are. He also says Odom is "one of the greatest people" he knows.

The former NBA star was found unconscious Tuesday at a Crystal, Nevada, brothel. He is hospitalized in Las Vegas.

12:10 p.m.

Lamar Odom lashed out about the media, his anguish over his reputation, and his relationship with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian in remarks videotaped in August by celebrity website TMZ.

The online video shows a visibly irritated Odom saying: "Ya'll have discredited me, beat me down, took my confidence, took everything away from me. You will not do it again."

He slams a media report that he ambushed Kardashian outside a California gym, saying he lives in Las Vegas now.

The former NBA star and reality TV personality also railed against reports that he's a womanizer and drug addict and touted his accomplishments on the basketball court.

"I probably couldn't even get (expletive) hired by Home Depot right now because of how people look at me," he says. "It's over."

Odom was found unconscious Tuesday at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, about 70 miles from Las Vegas. Kardashian has been by his side at a Las Vegas hospital.

10:50 a.m.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says Lamar Odom is on life support but that his doctors think he's improving.

Jackson visited the former NBA star and reality TV personality at a Las Vegas hospital Wednesday morning. He says Odom was unresponsive Tuesday but "has some responsiveness now."

Jackson added: "Apparently from what the doctor said, he was much better off today than yesterday."

Jackson was in town for Tuesday's Democratic presidential debate. He stopped and spoke to the media as he was leaving the hospital Wednesday.

He says Khloe Kardashian and some of Odom's childhood friends were by Odom's side, and former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant visited him last night.

Jackson says Odom's loved ones are "just holding hands and hoping he can bounce back."

Odom was found unconscious Tuesday afternoon at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, about 70 miles from Las Vegas.

9:40 a.m.

Nye County, Nevada, Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said investigators sought a warrant to obtain a blood sample to determine if Lamar Odom suffered a drug or alcohol overdose.

Wehrly said detectives worked until early Wednesday collecting evidence and interviewing employees at the brothel where the former NBA player and reality show star was found unconscious. She said she couldn't immediately say what they believe caused Odom to become unconscious.

But she acknowledged that medics usually turn someone on their side, as Odom was, to relieve pressure on the chest and help them breathe.

The sheriff didn't say whether Odom ever regained consciousness while he was stabilized and taken to hospitals.

Brothel owner Dennis Hof said Odom arrived alone, was "polite and reserved," drank alcohol from the bar and took herbal sexual enhancement capsules.

Hof said Odom didn't use drugs in the presence of anyone in the house.

7 a.m.

Reality TV personality Khloe Kardashian has been by Lamar Odom's side at a Las Vegas hospital since Tuesday evening.

That's according to a person close to the Kardashians who spoke anonymously because she wasn't authorized to speak to the press. Kardashian and Odom were married in 2009, but Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.

Odom was found unconscious Tuesday afternoon at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, about 70 miles outside of Las Vegas.

Authorities said the 35-year-old was stabilized at the scene before being taken to a hospital. He was then transferred to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Owner Dennis Hof said Odom had been at his brothel since Saturday.
