It's been one year since Lamar Odom nearly died after suffering an overdose in Las Vegas-area brothel.
Sadly, just months after that experience (which left Odom in a coma and required months of hospitalization), Odom was once again using drugs, drinking, and partying with sex workers.
Needless to say, the former NBA star didn't learn much from his brush death, and it didn't take him long to delve back into the lifestyle that almost killed him.
Given how much media scrutiny the incident received back in October of 2015, it seemed we knew everything there was to know about Odom's time at Dennis Hof's famous Bunny Ranch establishment.
Now, however, an escort who goes by the name Monica Monroe has published a blog post in which she reveals some surprising new details about the days leading up to Odom's overdose:
“No sex occurred while Lamar was at the Love Ranch," Monroe writes.
“I took the opportunity to strip him naked and gave him a full body massage. I was determined to have my way with his ample sized penis, but he just couldn’t get it up.”
She adds that Lamar was devastated over the end of his marriage to Khloe Kardashian and he coped by "eating KFC" and doing copious amounts of drugs:
“Lamar and I made a connection because we both were a little lonely due to recent losses in our lives:
"I had recently lost my boyfriend of eight years to a shooting and he was distraught over his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian."
Khloe appeared to giver her estranged husband a second chance after he emerged from his coma, but sadly, sources say she kicked Odom out her home after she found a crack pipe and caught wind of reports that he'd been partying with strippers.
Monroe says that the Odom incident very nearly cost her her livelihood, as her boss and potential clients viewed her as someone who is unable to keep a secret:
“Dennis Hof’s establishments get an impressive amount of celebrity and high-profile visitors, and we’re known for maintaining confidentiality and privacy for all of our clients,” she writes.
“After Lamar overdosed, it was perceived by many of my high-profile clients that I was no longer discreet, or that I was the type of person to ‘kiss and tell.’
“I know that my professional reputation was severely, nearly fatally, tarnished by last year’s events, although I’m not sure if Lamar could be held legally responsible for the repercussions of this tragedy.”
Monroe also claims that Hof is considering suing Odom, though it's unclear on what grounds.
We're not making excuses for the guy, but with all the stress and scrutiny in his life, it's not hard to see how he might be driven to self-destructive behavior.
