Basketball star Lamar Odom reportedly underwent emergency surgery on Thursday as he continues to fight for his life in a Los Angeles hospital.

Khloe Kardashian’s estranged husband underwent an unspecified procedure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the operation is said to be connected to a bout of pneumonia, according to People magazine.

“Lamar is in a very fragile state,” a source told the publication. “The infection, that is being aggressively treated with strong intravenous antibiotics, is unfortunately not getting better. There are many concerns about his health.”

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star is the only visitor allowed by his bedside until he improves, according to E! News.

Kardashian has been by the athlete’s side since he was hospitalized in Las Vegas on October 13, after he was found unconscious at a brothel in nearby Crystal, Nevada. He woke up from a coma a few days later and on Monday he was airlifted to Cedars-Sinai, where he has been treated ever since.

On Wednesday, the pair reportedly signed a petition asking a judge to dismiss divorce papers that had yet to be finalized. The request was granted and reports suggest their divorce case is now over.
