Two-time NBA champ Lamar Odom collapsed in front of nightclub in Los Angles on Sunday morning.

Despite his previous health scares, a spokesperson told press that Odom is doing fine. He blamed the incident on an intense workout earlier in the day and him not being properly hydrated.

“Lamar is doing well. He was dehydrated and had been in an intense workout earlier in the day. It was also very hot in the club,” the spokesperson told E! News. TMZ posted video of the 38 year old collapsing at a VIP table.

 

The video appears to begin after Odom already fell to the ground at the Bootsy Bellows night club. Bodyguards can be seen trying to help him stand.

Odom’s post-NBA issues date back to 2013, the year he left the league. He was arrested for driving under the influence. He eventually pleaded no contest and was placed on probation for three years. Two years later, he cheated death after he was found unconscious at the Bunny Ranch, an infamous brothel in Nevada.

He suffered strokes and kidney failure and was in a coma and placed on life support for a few days before he regained consciousness. His then-wife Khloe Kardashian backtracked on plans to divorce him to help make medical decisions, but later ended the marriage.
