Dennis Hof is not paying the 2 hookers who cavorted with Lamar Odom at the Love Ranch brothel, because he now believes they may have had something to do with Lamar doing drugs at the facility.
It's a sharp turn for Hof who, up until now, has insisted as far as he knew Lamar did not do drugs at the Ranch. As we reported, doctors found cocaine in Lamar's system a week ago when he was admitted to the hospital.
The hookers' deal with Hof was to split the $75k Lamar paid -- so they were to get $37,500 which they would equally divide.
But now Hof says the women may not be stand-up hookers, saying, "They will not answer questions about Lamar or possible drug use while he was here. I'm suspicious."
Hof says based on their reaction they know more than they're saying.
One of the hookers reportedly denied any suggestion she supplied Odom with drugs.
