New details are emerging surrounding Lamar Odom's four-day booze and drug binge at the brothel known as the "Love Ranch," in Pahrump, Nevada.

According to TMZ, Odom spent over $75,000 at the Love Ranch from Saturday to Tuesday afternoon when he was discovered by two girls unresponsive and unconscious in his V.I.P suite.

According to people who work at the Ranch, Odom was picked up at his home in Las Vegas and chauffeured to the ranch, which is 70 miles away. When Odom arrived at the brothel, all the girls lined up for him, and he was able to pick which one's he wanted.

He chose two girls that would stay with Odom for the entire three days.

Reports that Odom spent $75,000 at the Love Ranch, contrast with statements made by owner Dennis Hof.

Hof told CNN on Wednesday, that Odom's stay at the Ranch was free of charge.

"We put him in the VIP house, we don't charge him anything, but we tell him he can't do any drugs in my place," Hof told Don Lemon. "We have a 60-year history of zero tolerance when it comes to drugs."

Since Odom was found unconscious and rushed to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Hof has gone on the offensive, granting numerous media outlets interviews in order to paint the picture that his Love Ranch is a place for celebrities to come relax, have fun, and get away from the pressures of their lives.

"All he wanted to do was have some fun, the staff loved him, the girls loved him, he was generous with the girls," Hof said of Odom's stay. "He had two girls he was with a lot of time."

Hof continues to tell the media that Odom did not bring any drugs to the Ranch that no drugs were found his personal belongings, and that more than likely Odom overdosed on an "herbal Viagra" known as "Reload."

"The girls say he had taken 8 or 10 of them," Hof said, trying to convince viewers that the pills may have been the cause. "He had been doing coke before he got there, he knew he couldn't do it at my place, so he started taking these to give him the energy to carry on."

Hof's defiance that Odom took no illegal drugs while staying at the Ranch, differ from reports coming out of the hospital that say Odom took "every drug imaginable."

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Odom had cocaine and opiates in his system, as well as track marks on his arm, consistent with evidence of heroine injection. Police were granted a search warrant and have already taken a sample of Odom's blood to find out exactly what he might have taken.

In the meantime, authorities may look into Hof's business practices and take a closer inspection at his license to see if the brothel owner may have violated the law during Odom's stay at his place of business.

"We can't control these people, and we can't be with them 24 hours a day to watch what they are doing," Hof said. "Look at the tabloids, and look at all the history he has. He told the girls he had done some coke, that Saturday, before he came, and that he didn't bring any and is not going to do any."

We're not entirely sure where TMZ was able to confirm that Odom spent $75,000, but if true, Hof's credibility is diminished greatly. For those wealthy individuals out there reading this story, who think that a three-day, non-stop party with two girls at a legal brothel sounds like a great way to spend a weekend, just remember how Odom ended up.

"He didn't look good, change of color in his skin, he was foaming at the mouth, he was regurgitating very heavily and he was rushed out of there in an ambulance," Hof concluded.
