It's been a rough few days for Khloé Kardashian, but her mama Kris Jenner isn't worried about her "strong" daughter.

E! News caught up with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch, who informed us that Khloé is doing OK after filing for divorce from her NBA husband Lamar Odom.

"Khloé really is so great. She's strong and…the good news is that she's busy and you know, keeps her real busy. But she's good," Kris tells us.

"She's got such a big heart but she also is very sensitive. 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."

Jenner continued, "I think that when you have a tough decision to make and you finally make it, it's always a relief to come through that process, but it is a process. So we'll see."

On Monday, Dec. 16, Khloé was snapped for the first time since her filing, wearing black boots, jeans and a sweatshirt from Drake's October's Very Own line with Nothing Was the Same (the name of the rapper's 2013 album) written across the chest.

The 29-year-old E! star filed for divorce on Friday, Dec. 13. The couple was married for four years. Khloé cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is petitioning to legally drop Odom from her name. She is not asking for spousal support and is looking to have a judge prevent Odom from getting support from her as well.

Meanwhile, a source told E! News Lamar 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."
