Marquina detailed the incident from 2015, noting Odom was previously hospitalized and placed into an induced coma.

The former Sixth Man of the Year was recently reported to have collapsed in an LA nightclub early Sunday morning, and now video footage of the ordeal has been uploaded to YouTube, courtesy of TMZ Sports.

However Lamar's rep told TMZ it had been hot inside the venue and the former National Basketball Association player was simply "dehydrated" after spending the day working out without "necessary fluids", adding that he was "doing great" now. Several members of the staff, as well as other nightclub visitors, saw Odom collapse.

A source reportedly revealed that Odom had been drinking for several hours before the incident took place.

In the video, the former LA Laker can be seen slumping to the floor in a V.I.P. booth as security guards rush to his side.

A spokesman for Odom, 37, told Us Weekly he was "dehydrated".

"Lamar is doing well", the rep said in a statement according to The Jasmine Brand Monday. He had an intense workout earlier yesterday and did not get enough fluids'.

In October 2015 Lamar was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel after a drink and drug binge and nearly died. He had two heart attacks and 12 strokes from that incident. Khloe Kardashian delayed her divorce from Odom to help him through his recovery.

Odom said he was a "walking miracle". They added the club was also "very hot", but Odom is "doing great".
