Lamar Odom is said to be in a critical condition in hospital

His wife Gabrielle Union later shared the tweet with her 2.9 million followers.

Hours later, Dwayne posted another tweet, telling fans: "I can't help but to be up right now… THINKING about my ex teammate/ friend LO… On my knees praying… please God let him pull thru…"

Meanwhile Modern Family actress Ariel Winter sent her own best wishes. "Sending love to Lamar Odom & his family," she tweeted.

Lamar's former Los Angeles Lakers teammate and close friend Kobe Bryant left the team's pre-season game early on Tuesday evening to be by his bedside at the Las Vegas hospital.

The 35-year-old's ex-wife Khloé Kardashian is also reportedly at the hospital with her mum Kris Jenner and sister Kim Kardashian. The family have not yet commented on Lamar's condition, although Khloé's younger sister Kylie Jenner cut short a live stream she was doing shortly after the news broke, telling fans: "Had to end my live stream. I love you guys."

According to TMZ, which first reported Lamar's hospitalisation, doctors intubated the star, and he is breathing with the assistance of machines and remains in a critical condition.

Lamar has long struggled with alcohol and drug addiction. The 35-year-old was involved in a drink-driving case in 2013, and was suspended from the NBA for violating its anti-drug policy in 2000.

Lamar and Khloé were married in 2009 after a whirlwind romance. The couple separated in December 2013 after he suffered a relapse with his substance abuse problems and was reportedly unfaithful. They were officially divorced in July 2015.
