Nearly 48 hours since Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, family and friends have received the news they feared most.

Radar Online is now reporting that Odom is clinically brain dead and will never emerge from his coma.

“He has no brain activity," revealed one hospital source. Another added, “He is brain dead. The tests showed no function.”

To make matters worse, Odom's kidneys are failing and he has been placed on dialysis. He remains intubated and unable to breathe for himself.

It now seems it is only a matter of time before the 35-year-old NBA star and estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian passes away entirely.

Doctors believe Odom suffered an accidental drug overdose while ingesting dangerous quantities of alcohol, cocaine and opiates in the Las Vegas area over the past week. 

An MRI revealed that Odom suffered multiple strokes, which were likely the result of clotting caused by his cocaine use.

Yesterday, doctors informed his family that Odom has a 50/50 chance of survival.

Now that they've determined his brain is no longer functioning and he will never regain consciousness, the decision of when Lamar's life will end is in his family's hands.

Sources say Khloe has not left his bedside, and she was reportedly joined moments ago by Odom's children and their mother.

We'll keep you updated on this tragic story as more details become available.
