Kris Jenner has some blunt advice for her daughter Khloe Kardashian — dump Lamar Odom now and cut her losses.
Rumors that Khloe and Lamar are on the rocks have been circulating for weeks now, and came to a head this week amid reports that Lamar had spiralled into drug addiction. Khloe tried to stage an intervention and when it failed kicked Lamar out of the house, sources said this week.
Though Khloe has reportedly been doing all she can to keep the relationship together, her mom appears to be pulling her in the opposite direction.
“Kris is desperate for Khloe to divorce Lamar,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She thinks he is bad news and that Khloe can do much better.”
The source said Kris believes Lamar is offering nothing to the family. He isn’t signed with any NBA team, refuses to go to rehab for his drug addiction, and is a bad influence on Rob Kardashian. The rumors that Lamar has been cheating on Khloe aren’t helping, the source said.
Kris Jenner may getting through to Khloe, the source added.
“Khloe wants to have a baby, and now everything has been put on hold,” says the insider. “Kris does not want Khloe to have a baby with Lamar — he can’t even take care of himself, let alone a baby.”
Though Kris may be adamant against Lamar Odom, Khloe does have at least one family member in her corner. Rob Kardashian has reportedly taken his sister’s side in the matter, advocating for Lamar and trying to help them stay together.
Kris Jenner may have her own issues to worry about. The famous manager of the Kardashian clan has struggled in her jump to daytime television. Her talk show Kris had a poor debut, reaching only a 0.8 in the ratings and leaving advertisers wary to sign on. Though Fox has denied reports that the show is being canceled, insiders say it’s unlikely to return for a second season.
