1022-lamar-odom-tmz-01Lamar Odom had a visitor Monday night ... a guy who claimed to be Lamar's assistant, insisting Lamar had summoned him ... but hospital officials smelled a rat. 

Our sources tell us the guy arrived around 11 PM and got on Lamar's floor when security stopped him. He said Lamar had called him and he came down from Vegas because Odom was insistent on seeing him.

Our sources say the guy has a history with Lamar and Odom's people believe he facilitated Lamar's drug use. The 2 men lived together in Vegas at some point.  We're told Lamar's management fired the guy the day Lamar went into the hospital.

Security was unbending and refused to let the man in. There was yelling and "a big scene" before he was escorted out.

Khloe was not at the hospital when it went down.

10/26/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1022_sunris_medical_lamar_odom-2Lamar Odom was betrayed by several staffers at Sunrise Hospital in Vegas, and we've learned they've been summarily fired.

We're told the workers were all trying to sneak a photo of Lamar as he fought for his life inside the hospital. Our sources say some of them tried to access his medical records, in violation of HIPAA rules.

It's not the first time this has happened. Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears had their privacy rights violated during hospital stays, and the facilities fired the workers who hatched the plans.

A rep for Sunrise tells us, "We take all patient privacy very seriously and follow all HIPAA policies in compliance with federal regulations."

As we previously reported ... Lamar's now at Cedars-Sinai in L.A. ... where he's under 24/7 security.

1023-love-ranch-lamar-odom-TMZ-getty-01Lamar Odom was set up for OD'ing at the Love Ranch brothel by being paired with a hooker who had a bad reputation for "partying" ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, when Lamar arrived at the Ranch, the girls were put in a lineup so Lamar could choose his partners. One of the hookers who was standing there told us management influenced Lamar into picking 2 girls who were known to tolerate drug use. 

1023-love-ranch-tristen-lace-lamar-odom-TMZ-01We're told the girls who were left standing in the lineup complained bitterly that management should not have pushed a known addict into choosing women who would take him down a bad path. 

In fact, we're told several of the hookers quit in protest, including Tristen Lace, who says she's convinced Lamar would not be in the hospital if he had chosen different, less ominous hookers.

As we previously reported ... the 2 hookers who cavorted with Lamar are on suspension after allegedly lying to management about possible drug use in Odom's room.

1022-lamar-odom-tmz-01Lamar Odom suffered 12 strokes early on in his medical emergency, TMZ has learned, and they affected his motor skills.

Doctors performed a series of brain scans on Lamar and discovered the strokes. Although the strokes didn't affect vital organs, we're told they did have an impact on his ability to walk and talk.

Lamar's medical team isn't saying if the impairment is permanent. He'll undergo months of physical therapy and doctors don't know the extent to which his motor skills and speech will be restored.

The immediate obstacle right now is Lamar's kidneys, which have failed. He'll continue on dialysis and may need a transplant.

It seemed like a joke in the wake of the Lamar Odom incident -- but apparently, the option to "visit sick friend with Kobe Bryant" is a real thing in the NBA2K16 video game. 

Of course, Bryant really did "visit sick friend" in Vegas last week when he raced to the hospital to be with his friend Lamar Odom. 

So, when images from the NBA2K16 video games started making the round on social media -- many people thought it was just a joke in bad taste to mock the situation

Turns out, it's real -- with a rep for the company behind the game telling TMZ Sports, "This is a real thing."

The rep says the outing with Kobe is an option in the "MyCareer" game mode where players can do a variety of things including visiting friends and attending events. 

"This just happens to be very coincidental given recent events."

We're told the company has no plans of pulling the Kobe option from the game.
