A suspicious friend showed up to see Lamar Odom at the Los Angeles hospital where he is recovering from the life-threatening injuries he sustained while at a Nevada brothel.

The man claimed he was Odom’s assistant, and arrived on his floor at the Cedars-Sinai hospital around 11 p.m. Monday night.

He said he came because Odom was “insistent on seeing him,” TMZ reports. (RELATED: Lamar Odom Undergoes Emergency Surgeries In ‘Fragile’ State)

“Our sources say the guy has a history with Lamar and Odom’s people believe he facilitated Lamar’s drug use,” TMZ reports. “The two men lived together in Vegas at some point.”

“We’re told Lamar’s management fired the guy the day Lamar went into the hospital.” (RELATED: Khloe Kardashian Breaks Silence On Lamar Odom)
