Kardashian Krisis Update: Khloé Kardashian Is Going Through a "Cleansing Period"

How long has it been since our last Kardashian krisis update? I one day hope that, for this family's sake, Kardashian krisis updates become unnecessary — but that day is clearly not today, because I have a new update right now. According to People, Khloé Kardashian is going through a "cleansing period" after quietly filing for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom.

The news comes from Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner, who is actually going through a divorce of her own: "What Khloé is going through is definitely challenging, I’m not going to lie," Jenner told the magazine. "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."

At the very least, Jenner added, Khloé is determined to learn from this experience: "It’s definitely life lessons that she will be able to apply and use later in her life...she’s learned a lot from this situation."

No jokes to make here: This situation is legitimately tragic, and I hope for Khloé's sake that Keeping Up With the Kardashians isn't going to milk it next season for dramatic moments. Odom is clearly troubled and going through a myriad of issues that call for professional help — and Khloé is losing a man she's been with for four years who recently posted a rap about how he cheats on her. Furthermore, the tabloids are already theorizing that she's dating again (she's not). This is all just sad.

Jenner added: "I still love Lamar and I love Khloé, and I hate, hate they’re going through this. But if it’s something that Khloé feels she needs to do, then I’m 150 percent behind her. We all lean on each other, we have to."
