Lamar Odom is “doing well” after he collapsed at a nightclub in Hollywood early Sunday morning, his spokesperson said late Sunday.

“He was dehydrated and had been in an intense workout earlier in the day,” the former basketball star’s rep told TheWrap. “It was also very hot in the club.”

On Sunday, TMZ Sports published a video in which Odom was seen on the floor of his VIP booth at Los Angeles nightclub Bootsy Bellows early Sunday morning.

According to the publication, the ex-NBA star collapsed at around 2 a.m., and security rushed in to help the basketball player who seemed to be conscious.

Odom has had substance abuse problems in the past: He was hospitalized after being found unconscious in his room at the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, in 2015 after booking a five-day spree at the brothel.

He spent four days in a coma and remained hospitalized until early 2016. His estranged wife Khloe Kardashian — with whom he starred in a reality TV series — was by his side for a good portion of his recovery.

In an interview with Us Weekly earlier this year, Odom said he was clean now.

“Living sober, meaning no drugs, is a great feeling,” said Odom, who played 14 seasons in the NBA and won two championships for the L.A. Lakers. “Being in the moment is important — how you react, respond, create.”
