Kris Jenner has a reputation for getting very involved in the lives of her spotlight-hogging daughters, and now it appears she may be playing matchmaker to get daughter Khloe Kardashian and estranged husband Lamar Odom back together.
Khloe and Lamar famously split last year after rumors circulated that Lamar was cheating and falling deeper into substance abuse. The breakup played out in public, splashed across tabloids and shown to viewers of the Kardashian reality show empire.
But reports have circulated that Khloe and Lamar want to give it another shot, and Kris Jenner may be the one behind it all. A source told OK! Magazine that Kris is all for the reunion, thinking not only that it would make Khloe happy but it would also draw big ratings to their reality show.
Though Khloe has yet to speak publicly on the matter, some sources say she and Lamar are already back together.
“She’s dedicated a room and closet in her home for Lamar’s shoes. She took them out of the boxes because she didn’t want them to get bent and out of shape. Lamar has well over 300 pair of shoes at Khloe’s,” a source told Hollywood Life.
Kris Jenner has gotten deeply involved in Khloe’s love life in the past. In 2013, as Khloe and Lamar’s relationship was unraveling, Kris reportedly tried to get Khloe to pull the plug
“Kris is desperate for Khloe to divorce Lamar,” a source told Hollywood Life at the time. “She thinks he is bad news and that Khloe can do much better.”
At the time, Kris reportedly believed that Lamar was bringing nothing to the family, having fallen out of the NBA and refusing at the time to go to drug rehab. Kris also thought Lamar was a bad influence on son Rob Kardashian, who himself has struggled with substance abuse.
“Khloe wants to have a baby, and now everything has been put on hold,” the insider said at the time. “Kris does not want Khloe to have a baby with Lamar — he can’t even take care of himself, let alone a baby.”
But Kris Jenner has reportedly changed her mind about Lamar Odom, who has reportedly cleaned up his act and is trying to show Khloe Kardashian that he is now serious about the relationship.
