Lamar Odom is currently fighting for his life after being found unresponsive at a brothel near Las Vegas.

According to TMZ, Odom had been partying at the Love Ranch in Pahrump, Neveda since Saturday and had been taking a herbal substitute for Viagra. On Tuesday afternoon, a woman went to Lamar’s VIP suite and found the 35 year-old unconscious.

The former LA Lakers star was initially taken to a nearby hospital where he was intubated. He was then rushed to a Las Vegas hospital for further treatment.

This news comes on the heels of Lamar losing two of his closest friends recently; one to a flesh eating disease (due to dirty needles) and one to a drug overdose. Odom has also admitted to having a difficult time since his recent divorce from Khloe Kardashian.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
