Divorce is undeniably devastating, particularly, when you have to go through the painful process in the public eye.
Such is the case for Khloe Kardashian, who filed for divorce from her husband of four years Lamar Odom on Friday, Dec. 13, citing irreconcilable differences and has since had to deal with incessant tabloid chatter since she made the difficult decision to end her marriage.
The E! star took to Twitter to seemingly address the endless headlines today, pleading for privacy in the wake of the emotional process.
"This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul," the 29-year-old beauty wrote on Wednesday, Dec. 18. "Please, I don't need the extra rumors and BS right now."
This is the first time Khloé has opened up about her divorce since filing Friday. She has made no further mention of the split on social media, although she did wish her nephew Mason a happy birthday with an adorable Instagram collage on Saturday and appears to be keeping busy by spending time with her family since the breakup.
And while it's been less than a week since the marital couple called it quits, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has already been falsely linked to Dodgers player Matt Kemp.
Sources told E! News there is absolutely no truth to the romance rumors, adding that Khloé is "hurt" and "is in absolutely no frame of mind for dating right now."
Khloé's mother Kris Jenner also told E! News her daughter staying "strong," although she admitted divorce is a "process."
"She's got such a big heart but she also is very sensitive," the Kardashian family matriarch said. "She's got that tougher exterior and sensitive inside, but she's good. She's got all of us all around her and I'll see her later, and yeah, she's good. I was with her yesterday and she's a gift. She's one of my biggest blessings."
As for Lamar?
A source told E! News the former NBA star, who has been busy training in Rhode Island, is "deeply saddened by Khloé filing for divorce. He knew it was coming and it was only a matter of time. He felt like he gave his all to try and save the marriage, but ultimately he wasn't able to."
Wishing both Khloé and Lamar all the best.
