— -- Lamar Odom has been hospitalized.

The former NBA star was found unconscious at the Love Ranch, a legal brothel in Crystal, Nev., ABC News has confirmed.

According to the Nye County Sheriff's Office, Odom was unresponsive when medics arrived at 3:34 p.m. local time. Odom was first brought to Desert View Hospital but then immediately transported by Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for further treatment.

Nye County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Cory Fowles and Michael Eisenloffel conducted an investigation on scene.

Odom, 35, last played in the NBA in 2013. That same year, he was arrested for DUI, to which he pleaded no contest that December. Later that month, Khloe Kardashian, his wife of five years, filed for divorce amid reports of Odom's infidelity and substance abuse.

"He doesn't think we are going through with the divorce," Kardashian said in a 2014 clip from her reality TV show. "[He says] I'll always be his wife and he'll never call me anything else."

According to a recent clip from "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," Odom was still in touch with his ex-spouse.

Earlier this year, Odom suffered another setback when his best friend, Jamie Sangouthai, died.
