SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Lamar Odom’s bizarre downfall from a former Los Angeles Lakers star to a lost soul in a Nevada brothel had the world searching Google for answers more than any other topic this year.Odom is still in serious condition, according to a report from Entertainment Tonight, and has speech and mobility issues as he recovers in a Los Angeles area hospital. “He’s not doing great,” a source told the program. “His speech is still slurred and he can barely walk on his own yet.Paris under attack – The November coordinated terrorist attacks in the City of Light and ways people could help received more than 847 million searches. A four-day binge in October that culminated in Odom being found unconscious in the Nevada “Love Ranch” placed him atop Google’s list of hottest searches during 2015.

The top search term both overall and for people this year was former basketball player and former husband of Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom, who was hospitalized in October after being found unresponsive at a brothel. The annual breakdown released Wednesday ranks the inquiries that triggered the biggest spikes in traffic on Google’s dominant search engine, excluding queries about sexually explicit subjects.

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Olympian Bruce Jenner and stepfather to Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, made headlines this year for coming out as transgender on the cover of Vanity Fair; she was subsequently named the second-most searched person and fourth-most searched overall on Google this year. The interest in Odom eclipsed January’s lethal attacks in France at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a mobile game called “Agar.io” that lets multiple players devour cells in a virtual petri dish. Jenner’s daughter, Kylie Jenner, topped the beauty questions searches with queries about how she got her lips so plump, while Kim Kardashian topped “celebrity pregnancies” searches.

Other search engines, social networking company Facebook and short messaging specialist Twitter already released their own takes on this year’s collective mindset, but Google’s is considered to be the definitive look into what’s on people’s minds. As The New York Times aptly puts it, “the search giant’s lists emphasized that Americans who went online were less interested in being uplifted than being distracted, preferably by something scandalous.” That’s because Google processes two out of every three search requests in the world, a position that translates into trillions of inquiries each year. Odom’s saga fascinated people who aren’t even sports fans because he married reality TV star Khloe Kardashian in 2009 while he was still a key player on a Laker team that went on to win its second consecutive National Basketball Association championship. During Odom’s stay in Nevada, brother workers said they saw him drinking alcohol and taking supplements sold as “herbal Viagra.” The brothel’s owner said Odom had spent $75,000 on two women who took him to a VIP suite.

Odom, 36, also was Google’s most-searched person on its 2015 world rankings, followed by former mixed martial arts bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Caitlyn Jenner, who was Odom’s father-in-law before transitioning to life as a woman in 2015. Google also provided the lists for the top searches in a wide variety of categories, including movies (“Jurassic World”), television (“Big Brother Brazil”) and musical artists (Adele).
