“They need to do the right thing and pay.”
Apparently, two weeks is an unreasonable amount of time to wait for Lamar Odom’s outstanding brothel bill. After, you know, he ended up in hospital.
While Khloe Kardashian is yet to leave her husband’s side following him being found unconscious in the Love Ranch brothel two weeks ago, it seems the establishment’s owner, Dennis Hof, isn’t prepared to wait around for his money.
Hof has threatened to sue Khloe Kardashian if the massive US $78,000 bill isn’t settled soon, telling The New York Times that he is entitled to what he is owed regardless of Odom’s tenuous medical condition.
“They’re requesting the credit card slips and asking, ‘Did he sign them?’ I sent them his driver’s license, the slips, some other stuff.
“I have no problem filing against her or him. Khloé, she’s the wife. They’re responsible for their debts. Why are they calling me? They need to do the right thing and pay.”
While the details of what happened during Odom’s stay at Love Ranch remain blurry, brothel workers Ryder Cherry and Monica Monroe say it was far from a sex romp. During his stay at the Nevada brothel, the former NBA star’s said to have spent his time watching movies with the women, eating KFC with them and even offering to cook.
Although he did have sex at the brothel according to Daily Mail, Odom’s stay at Love Ranch mostly involved talking to workers about his childhood, his wife Khloe Kardashian and the death of his mum. While he invited the women to watch movies like Interstellar and Mad Max: Fury Road in his room, he opted to spend three nights alone, taking frequent naps throughout the day.
Richard Hunter, one of the brothel’s managers, described the 35-year-old as a quiet and unassuming visitor.
“When people hear about three- or four-day benders, they imagine running up and down hallways naked and swinging from chandeliers and stuff.
“There was nothing erratic or wild about his behaviour.
“He was very polite, just sort of reserved and shy or whatever.”
It was your basic Netflix and Chill scenario (except for the offering to make breakfast thing. That’s an excellent new development). But apparently his friendly but near-fatal stay added up to a tidy $78k.
According to search warrant records, a cocktail of drugs including cocaine and sexual enhancers were present in Odom’s system when he was found unconscious in his VIP room. Despite early reports that he had lost brain function following a series of strokes, a statement released by Odom’s family says the former athlete is showing miraculous signs of progress.
“He is beginning to gradually flourish both mentally and physically.
“His use of speech has increased, and he’s more cognitively responsive.”
Khloe Kardashian is yet to respond to demands that she foots her husband’s bill.
