Khloe Kardashian reportedly ‘heartbroken’ over Lamar Odom, not dating Matt Kemp

Matt Kemp Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian recently filed for divorce from Lamar Odom, and there are already reports that she is rebounding quickly. Over the weekend, a gossip outlet claimed that Khloe is secretly dating Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. The speculation grew even greater when Kemp posted a photo of the Kardashians’ family Christmas tree on his Instagram account.

Kemp and Kardashian have reportedly been hanging out and attending concerts together for at least the past month, but People Magazine insists they are nothing more than friends.

“They are just friends and have been for a long time,” a source reportedly told People. “Khloé is absolutely heartbroken right now [over Lamar] and dating someone is the last thing she’s thinking about.”

Another person close to the Kardashians confirmed that Kemp and Khloe are just friends, but would not rule out a romantic relationship in the future.

“It could be heading [romantic] in the future, but Khloé wasn’t spending time with him when she was still with Lamar,” the source reportedly said. “She absolutely wasn’t. People need to remember that she and Lamar haven’t lived together since June.”

We know better than to believe anything anyone says about the Kardashians by now — including the Kardashians. It’s possible Kemp and Khloe are just friends and were trying to hide so people like us wouldn’t talk about it. Then again, if they weren’t shy about showing their faces in public together people would be more inclined to believe that they have nothing to hide. No one would be surprised if they confirmed they are dating in the near future.

Khloe Kardashian reportedly filing for divorce from Lamar Odom

Khloe-Kardashian-Lamar-Odom-trophyIt has long been assumed that it is only a matter of time before Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian officially split. According to TMZ, Khloe was expected to file for divorce on Friday.

An incredibly strange freestyle rap video that Odom recorded last month was said to have finally pushed Khloe over the edge. Odom was shirtless in that video rapping about stuff like “being on the DL” when Khloe is out of town — whatever that means.

Last we heard, Khloe’s stepfather Bruce Jenner was mentoring Odom and the 34-year-old was positioning himself for a return to the NBA. When rumors were flying about Lamar and Khloe being separated back in October, Odom tried to put them to rest by flashing his wedding ring for the paparazzi.

According to TMZ, Khloe stopped wearing her ring after the freestyle rap video hit the internet. Odom was also not in attendance for the Kim Kardashian-Kanye West proposal, but he claimed that was by choice. Whether Khloe files for divorce on Friday or not, a split seems inevitable.

Lamar Odom asked if he’s still with Khloe Kardashian, flashes wedding ring

Lamar Odom Khloe KardashianLamar Odom has been very tough to spot in public since rumors of his alleged drug abuse and failing marriage began popping up in every gossip publication in America. On Monday, TMZ was somehow able to track Odom down and spend a few minutes chatting with the former Los Angeles Lakers forward.

Odom’s friend or manager or whoever he was with tried to cut the interview off several times, but Lamar seemed to be in a chatty mood. He spoke about eating healthy and becoming a champion. He also talked about how he feels great and that living beats the alternative, which of course is dying. The most revealing part of the chat came when the photographer asked him if he has spoken to Khloe Kardashian lately.

“Do you see my wedding ring on?” Odom asked.

TMZ has not made the video embeddable, but you can watch it here. You can’t make out the ring in the video, but the photographer acknowledged that it was there and asked if he could get a still photo of it. That obviously means Odom was trying to imply that they are still together, whether it’s true or not.

Some people are undoubtedly going to draw the conclusion that Odom was messed up because of how weird he seemed talking about “the parade” and getting all philosophical. Just last month, we were reading reports about Odom’s life revolving around smoking crack and partying and Khloe being anxious to divorce him. Odom’s willingness to chat with TMZ may cool off some of that speculation.

Khloe Kardashian reportedly ‘anxious’ to divorce Lamar Odom

Khloe-Kardashian-Lamar-Odom-trophyKhloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have reportedly been living separate from one another for quite some time. A divorce almost seems inevitable at this point, which had led many to wonder what the hold up is. Would it be messy? According to a recent report from TMZ, a split between Khloe and Lamar would be be relatively easy.

Sources reportedly told TMZ that Khloe is “anxious” to end the marriage but fears filing for divorce could push Odom over the edge. The couple supposedly drew up a prenup before getting married that would keep all of their assets separate and should prevent any serious complications. Perhaps the drugs are the only holdup.

TMZ also noted that there is not an infidelity clause in the prenup that would result in Khloe getting more money if Lamar cheated, despite what has been previously reported.

A couple of weeks ago, a report indicated that Odom’s drug habit has not gotten any better and that his life is revolving around smoking crack and partying. He was also recently spotted buying ingredients that are commonly used to make a homemade crack pipe.

With everything we have heard about the state of Odom’s life, it makes perfect sense that Khloe would be afraid of worsening his addiction by filing for divorce. It seems obvious that he’s in a very, very bad place to begin with.

Kris Jenner reportedly wants Khloe Kardashian to divorce Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom Khloe KardashianKhloe Kardashian may want to stay with husband Lamar Odom and try to save their marriage despite his drug problems, but her mother Kris Jenner reportedly is pushing for a divorce.

The New York Daily News reported on Wednesday that Jenner has taken the step to meet with divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who handled Kim Kardashian’s split from Kris Humphries. Jenner not only met with Wasser to encourage Khloe to get a divorce, but also so that Odom and Kardashian could truthfully say they have not met with divorce attorneys should the subject come up.

According to the report, Khloe wants to try helping Odom and believes their marriage can be saved, but her family is encouraging her to make the split. Jenner wants Khloe to collect on their prenuptial agreement and cheating penalty and move on. The Kardashian family is also supposedly worried about Rob, who lives with Odom and Khloe and is tight with the basketball player.

The News also says exactly what we suspected — someone from the Kardashian side (likely Jenner) must have leaked the story to TMZ. In order to destroy someone’s name by dishing all their dirt on drug abuse, you have to have a rock-solid source, which would be someone from the family. We suspected the news came from Jenner because the report was so detailed, released on a Friday night, which is when publicists release bad news so it gets buried over the weekend, and because it painted Khloe in a positive light.

Khloe and Lamar married in Sept. 2009 after briefly dating. They began filming a reality TV show that Odom supposedly blamed for his basketball struggles. Odom was recently kicked out of the house by Khloe amid multiple reports about him cheating. It was later reported that Odom is a drug user hooked on crack.

Report: Lamar Odom abusing hardcore drugs

Khloe Kardashian Lamar OdomThe problems in the celebrity marriage of Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian were triggered by Odom’s abuse of hardcore drugs, according to a report.

TMZ reports that Odom has had a drug problem for two years. The outlet says Odom’s drug problem got so bad last year, Khloe pressured him to go to rehab. She reportedly had private investigators stand security outside the facility to make sure he didn’t leave. Odom supposedly left rehab after three weeks last August and has not been back.

According to the report, Odom stayed clean last NBA season, which he spent with the Los Angeles Clippers. After the season ended, he reportedly began using hardcore recreational drugs again.

Not only is Kardashian worried about Odom’s supposed drug problem, but she also reportedly believes the rumors that he is cheating on her. Odom and Kardashian’s marital problems have been the subject of gossip reports since early last year. A March 2012 report stated that Odom and Kardashian were “facing the end” in their relationship. The two married in Sept. 2009 after briefly dating. Though they have not divorced, recent reports have said Kardashian kicked her husband out of the house, and that Odom has been cheating.

Despite her cheating concerns, Khloe supposedly is more worried about getting Lamar drug-free than straightening out the cheating situation. The family supposedly held an intervention in recent days to ask Odom to go back to rehab, but it didn’t work. TMZ says he moved out after that.

If Odom has been abusing drugs for two years, that could help explain his unbelievably poor season with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011-2012. The report could also help explain Odom’s erratic behavior towards a photographer, whose equipment he smashed in July.

Odom is currently a free agent.
