On Friday, the 29-year-old reality star filed for divorce from Lamar Odom, her husband of more than four years, citing irreconcilable differences.
The decision has been a hard one for the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star to make. It’s been reported that she’s had the papers signed and ready to go for months but wasn’t ready to pull the trigger on her marriage. However, after month of speculation that their marriage was on the rocks due to Odom’s alleged drug use and infidelity, Kardashian will reportedly be a single woman again before the weekend is over.
According to Laura Wasser, Khloe’s representative in the legal procedure, the divorce is going to be a smooth affair unlike many others, because the couple have a prenup that keeps both their assets separate. Khloe has requested the judge to restore her maiden name and is not asking for spousal support.
The couple had tried to fix their marriage. While Lamar even tried to beg for forgiveness on the Kardashians’ reality show, Khloe had also tried reaching out to her husband via the social media. However, it was just too much to handle.
“He (Odom) knows that no other woman on the face of the earth would go through a battle like that, the way she did. He always pleads his case to her every chance he gets, but his actions just don’t match up to his words,” a source told Wetpaint.com.
It’s been reported that the last straw for Kardashian was a strange video Odom did in which he is seen rapping about cheating on Khloe and “making the pain go away.”
However, it seems that Kardashian is wasting no time, as on the same day reality starlet filed for divorce, she was photographed heading to the gym with baseball star Matt Kemp. Kemp, who plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers, famously dated Rihanna in 2010 after the singer split from Chris Brown.
The stars were spotted driving in separate cars on Friday, with Kardashian closely following Kemp’s black Jaguar. A short while later, she pulled into the car park at the gym and walked to the entrance separately while covering her face with her camouflage ruck sack and her beige designer handbag.
One source close to the matter even claimed: “Khloe and Matt are dating, but it’s not serious yet…But Khloe’s already acting like she’s in love… Khloe’s like that, she loves hard, but she moves on quick.”
Both Kemp and Kardashian have stayed quiet about the dating rumors, nevertheless more speculation emerged when Matt took to Instagram on Thursday (December 12) to post a snap of the Kardashian’s family Christmas tree, alongside the caption: “Best time of the year!! It’s gonna b a Cali Christmas this year,” he wrote.
Kris Jenner also uploaded the same photo to her Instagram account with the caption “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.”
The two have been hanging out together for the past couple weeks. On November 25, they were photographed together in the VIP section of a Drake concert. The two also attended a John Legend show on December 1, Radar Online reported.
