Former reality TV star Lamar Odom has been taken to hospital after he was found unconscious at a US brothel, authorities said.

The 35-year-old is a former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian. He remains in a Las Vegas hospital and there was no immediate word on his condition, officials said.

The County Sheriff’s Department was called to the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, about 70 miles from Las Vegas, after a report of an unresponsive man needing an ambulance, police said.

He was taken to Desert View Hospital in nearby Pahrump and then driven by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Centre.

Dennis Hof, who owns the Love Ranch, said his staff picked up Odom from a house in Las Vegas on Saturday.

“He just wanted to get away, have a good time and relax,” Mr Hof said.

He added that Odom was “happy, he was sleeping every night”, while visiting.

Mr Hof said Odom had been taking herbal Viagra and had drunk part of a bottle of cognac since arriving.

Odom saw reality TV fame through his marriage to Khloe Kardashian.

Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.
