The longer Lamar stays in the condition, the worse his prognosis becomes.

Citing sources close to the situation, TMZ say that the basketball star did squeeze Khloe's hand overnight. However, medics are of the opinion that this could have been an involuntary movement.

It's understood four of his organs, including his kidneys, are continuing to fail.

On Wednesday, Lamar's loved ones were told he had a 50/50 chance of survival.

Also by his bedside are his two teenage children and his first wife.

Lamar was found unresponsive at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada during the afternoon on Tuesday 13 October. It’s claimed he checked into the brothel on Saturday 10 October and has been using an herbal sexual performance enhancing drug and cocaine prior to being found.

According to the caller, "white stuff" and blood was coming from his nose and mouth.

Nevada authorities took a blood sample from the reality star yesterday in order to identify what toxins were in his system.

His ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, who he is still legally married to, flew his family, including his father Joe, out to Nevada to be by his side.

She is being supported by her mother Kris and sister Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, while Kendall Jenner flew early from Shanghai Fashion Week to be in Las Vegas with her family.

Kris has broken her silence on her son-in-law's condition, urging followers to pray for him on social media. Khloe's brother Rob has been seen at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where Lamar (35) is being treated, and posted a message on Instagram saying he is "praying nonstop for my brother."

Khloe's model sister Kendall posted a message on Twitter saying "please don't go."

A family source told People magazine they are rallying around Lamar.

"They're pretty sure this is goodbye, but they're praying for a miracle. They know that God has the power to heal him, but that's really the last hope at this point. This is really bad."

"Everyone has dropped everything to get there. There are a lot of calls and texts going back and forth as everyone is figuring out how they can help and be there for each other. The family has been told that this isn't just a minor thing; that it was extremely serious."

Odom's NBA pals have also joined in, with former teammates paying tribute to a selfless player.

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony said: "All he cared about was playing basketball. He wanted to give back to the league. Every time I talked to him, that's all he talked about."

Knicks coach Derek Fisher similarly praised him, saying:"Lamar Odom is one of the greatest people I've ever known. I don't view him through the prism of choices that he's made. I view him through the heart and soul of the person that he really is."

Lamar reportedly became "irate" after receiving a phone call in relation to his portrayal on the reality show starring his wife, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

His best friend Jamie Sagouthai died in June of this year of a drug overdose and at the time, the E! star said she was "always going to be there" for her ex.

"I'm always going to be there for Lamar, especially when something as tragic as this happen," she added.

"I'm really on high alert for Lamar because I mean, anything I think will set him to spiral, and that's kind of the last thing I want for him."

Earlier this year, Khloe told E! News she would always be in love with her ex-husband.

"I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that," she said.
