Lamar Odom collapsed at a Los Angeles nightclub early Sunday morning.

The ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian fell to the ground at his VIP booth at Bootsy Bellows on the Sunset Strip at 2 a.m. where staff and security rushed to his aid, TMZ reports.

A source told TMZ the former basketball player had been drinking for several hours prior to his collapse. In the video Odom, 37, is seen slumped over on the floor, but appeared conscious during the whole ordeal.

Odom's publicist Eve Sarkisyan told Us Magazine her client is "doing great," blaming the incident on mitigating factors.

“He was dehydrated last night and it was really hot in the club. He had an intense workout earlier yesterday and did not get enough fluids,” she said.

While Odom is said to have quickly recovered, this is not the first time he has faced a serious health scare.

In 2015, Odom cheated death after a drug overdose at the Love Ranch brothel in Las Vegas, having endured two heart attacks and 12 strokes.

While Odom entered rehab following a vow to change his life, he has recently been seen partying at several nightclubs and strip clubs.

In an interview earlier this year with Us Magazine Odom said, "I'm a walking miracle. I had no choice but to become stronger. I'm here talking to you. So, I guess I'm winning."

"Living sober, meaning no drugs, is a great feeling. Being in the moment is important - how you react, respond, create," he told the magazine.

While Odom was previously a professional basketball player in the NBA, he became a household name following his whirlwind romance with Khloe Kardashian. The couple wed after a month of dating and starred in the short-lived TV show, Khloe & Lamar. The couple were married from 2009-2016.

When asked about Kardashian's supposed pregnancy, Odom said he wishes her well and he "still has love for her."
