Details of the days before Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel are trickling out: Sources at Love Ranch South tell TMZ that employees from the brothel picked Odom up at his Las Vegas home, 70 miles away, and took him to the ranch. He had the VIP suite and picked two of the "working girls," and within three days he had spent $75,000. Sources previously told TMZ that doctors found cocaine in Odom's system; whoever called 911 from the brothel told the dispatcher that Odom told her he'd used cocaine before arriving at the ranch. If that's found to be true, authorities say it's "distinctly possible" he'll be charged with drug possession; the sheriff's department is testing Odom's blood for drugs.

The 911 caller also said Odom had a "white/pinkish substance" coming from his nose and mouth when he was found, TMZ reports. The gossip site sounds skeptical that Odom didn't also do cocaine at the ranch, noting: "What doesn't make a lot of sense ... why would Lamar confess to doing coke just before arriving but not doing it once he got there?" As for his current condition, TMZ says he has a 50/50 chance of survival due to drug-related complications including strokes, multiple organ failure, and heart problems. Multiple members of the Kardashian family have spoken out in support of Lamar. (Read more Lamar Odom stories.)
