Kobe Bryant rushed from his game in Las Vegas on Tuesday night to be with his friend and former teammate, Lamar Odom.
Bryant, who left in the third quarter of the Lakers pre-season game against the Kings due to a lower leg contusion, was spotted rushing inside the Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Vegas where Odom is being treated after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.
There has been an outcry of support from family and friends, including the Kardashians who are also by Odom’s side. Most of the family has remained mum on social media, however, Lamar’s ex-sister-in-law, Kendall Jenner tweeted early Wednesday morning:
“Please don’t go.”
The 35-year-old’s management company, Excel Sports, released a statement on Wednesday morning that read:
“Lamar Odom is a long-time member of the Excel family, and we are keeping him in our thoughts and prayers. We are staying close to the situation but have no additional information or comment at this time.”
The Nye County Sheriff’s department confirmed in a statement that around 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, an ambulance was requested “for an unresponsive male experiencing a medical emergency at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada.” Identified as Lamar Odom, the athlete was “stabilized and transported to Desert View Hospital arriving at 4:16 pm.”
According to officials, “After being treated by the physicians, arrangements were made to transport him by Mercy Air helicopter. However, Mr. Odom was unable to be transported by air due to his stature. He was immediately transported by Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada for further treatment.”
Odom is reportedly still in a coma and his heart is apparently failing.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
