“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Khloé Kardashian has been having a rough go of it lately. She recently filed for divorce from husband Lamar Odom after four years of marriage, amidst his drug problems and rumors of his cheating.
“What Khloé is going through is definitely challenging, I’m not going to lie,” says Jenner. “It’s also a very interesting time for her because it’s very cleansing. She’s also showed this side of her that I didn’t know she had. I always knew Khloé was strong, but I never dreamed that she had this kind of strength.”
“It’s definitely life lessons that she will be able to apply and use later in her life. She’s a learned a lot from this situation,” Jenner adds.
She also squashes rumors that Khloé is dating LA Dodgers star Matt Kemp.
“He’s a family friend,” says Jenner. “We all live in the same neighborhood and we all hang out. He’s a great guy who we adore, but he’s just a friend. That’s it.”
Khloé herself tweets, “This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul. Please, I don’t need the extra rumors and BS right now.”
