Dennis Hof wrote a memoir, “The Art of the Pimp,” which was published in 2015. That's the same year former NBA star Lamar Odom collapsed at Hof's 'Love Ranch' brothel in Crystal, Nevada.
Hof's body was found at his Love Ranch. There is no indication of foul play.
Hof is on the ballot for the November general election, running as the Republican candidate for the state legislature.
