Former basketball star Lamar Odom, the estranged husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, had used cocaine and herbal Viagra before he was found unresponsive in a brothel, according to 911 calls released by police.
He was taken to hospital on Tuesday after being found by staff at the Love Ranch legal brothel in Crystal, Nevada.
Odom had been using cocaine on Saturday and had taken as many as 10 performance-enhancing tablets in the three days before he collapsed, employees at the brothel told emergency services.
Kardashian and her sisters Kim and Kourtney, her mother Kris Jenner and half-sister Kendall Jenner are all reportedly at his bedside at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, Kendall tweeted: "Please don't go."
Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said on Wednesday that a worker at the legal brothel reported Odom was found unresponsive with blood coming from his nose and mouth.
Nevada authorities have taken a blood sample to establish if there was anything in his body.
US media report that although Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013, it had yet to be processed and she was making decisions about his medical care.
Olusegun Obasanjo has confessed that when he was a sitting president of Nigeria he enjoyed being insulted by political opponents or critics.
Vanguard reports that Obasanjo made his surprising statement on Wednesday, October 14, speaking at the first international conference of the African Studies Association of Africa. The conference entitled “African Studies in the Twenty-First Century, Past, Present and Future” was held at the International Conference Centre of the University of Ibadan, Oyo state.
The former president revealed that all those published insults were kept in the archives at his presidential library.
“If you visit the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, you will find thousands of archived newspaper comics and columns meant to spite and insult my person even as a sitting president. No individual or group of people was ever queried or jailed or repressed for expressing this freedom. Rather, I encouraged them because I derived fun and pleasure from the humour as I know who I am and nobody needs to tell me who and what I am not,”he said.
