The former basketball star has been taken off a ventilator three days after he was found unconscious in a legal brothel in Sin City.

According to Page Six, Lamar has been taken off dialysis and his CAT scan has come back clear first words to Khloe were ‘Hey Baby’.

A source close to Lamar told US publication People: “The CAT scan came back clean, and they're slowing taking him off each machine. He's off dialysis and that looks good. We're hopeful.”

Lamar was discovered unconscious in legal brothel Love Ranch in Nevada on Tuesday.

An itemised bill of Lamar’s stay at the ranch revealed that the star dished more than $74000 (€65000) on two prostitutes and racked up a bar tab of more than a grand. The star is believed to have overdosed on drugs made available to him during his stay at the establishment.

It was Lamar's idea. He said, "I'll give you two girls for $75,000 the entire time I'm there -- minimum of four days and max of five days,"' said brothel owner Dennis Hof speaking to The Daily Mail.

“We picked him up at his place in Las Vegas, brought him out there, great mood, ready to have a good time. He just wanted a little peace and quiet and get away from the pressures of his life.”

Speaking to USA Today Lamar’s former coach revealed that the basketball star woke up after Khloe told him she loved him.

“'She reached down and said "you know I love you" and he kind of nodded.

“Three or four days after being scared to death and fearing the worst, that is a little hope, a little progress. She texted me that,” he said.

As a mark of respect for Lamar the Kardashians has issued identical statements suspending all activity on their apps.
