“What Khloe is going through is definitely challenging, I’m not going to lie. It’s also a very interesting time for her because it’s very cleansing,” Kris told People at a Ciroc party in LA. “She’s also showed this side of her that I didn’t know she had. I always knew Khloe was strong, but I never dreamed that she had this kind of strength.”

Khloe and Lamar had been estranged for months leading into her divorce filing. Lamar got a DUI amid rumors of drug abuse this summer. “I still love Lamar and I love Khloe, and I hate, hate they’re going through this,” Kris went on. “But if it’s something that Khloe feels she needs to do, then I’m 150 percent behind her. We all lean on each other, we have to.” As for those rumors that Khloe is dating Matt Kemp, Kris shot the idea down. “He’s a great guy who we adore, but he’s just a friend. That’s it.”
