Khloe Kardashian is getting vocal about her split with basketball player Lamar Odom. Sort of.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star filed for divorce from her husband of four years on Dec. 13, citing “irreconcilable differences” amid long-running reports that Odom has been using drugs and cheated on her. 

This week, new rumors surfaced alleging that that 29-year-old designer had been getting romantic with Dodgers baseball player Matt Kemp, rumors that were shut down almost as quickly as they started, E! News reported.

“She’s hurt. She is in absolutely no frame of mind for dating right now,” a source close to the E! reality star told the site.

This after the youngest of the Kardashian sisters trio stepped out wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with rapper Drake’s album title “Nothing was the same” on it. Read into that what you will -- we will not.

On Wednesday, Kardashian took to Twitter to seemingly address those reports.

“This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul,” she wrote. “Please, I don’t need the extra rumors and BS right now.”


Kardashian momager Kris Jenner, who also announced her separation from her husband of 22 years, Bruce Jenner, this year, said that her daughter was staying “strong.”

“Khloe really is so great. She’s strong and … the good news is that she’s busy. ... But she’s good,” Jenner told E! News. “She’s got such a big heart but she also is very sensitive. She’s got that tougher exterior and sensitive inside, but she’s good. She’s got all of us all around her and I’ll see her later, and yeah, she’s good. I was with her yesterday and she’s a gift. She’s one of my biggest blessings.”

She continued: “I think that when you have a tough decision to make and you finally make it, it’s always a relief to come through that process, but it is a process. So we’ll see.”

Meanwhile, Odom reportedly wants to start re-focusing on his basketball career, according to TMZ.

The former L.A. Clippers forward is hoping to “save his legacy,” the site said, so that he can be remembered for his hoop-playing rather than drug abuse.

The 34-year-old reportedly wants to get back on the NBA court by New Year’s Day and has been frequently spotted training at a Los Angeles facility, TMZ said.
