K-Klan matriarch KRIS JENNER is telling self-esteem challenged KHLOE KARDASHIAN to dump wayward hubby LAMAR ODOM.


“At Kris’ insistence, Khloe did meet with a divorce lawyer…it was something she was forced into doing by her mom, a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.


“Kris was very heavy handed and said Khloe had a responsibility to her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, and the Kardashian brand to distance herself from Lamar.  It’s all about the bottom line with Kris, and Khloe could care less about that. She is still holding out hope that her marriage to Lamar can be saved.”


The source also said Khloe refuses to let go of Odom because her self-esteem is completely wrapped up in her marriage to the former Los Angeles Clipper power forward who’s reputed drug trouble has left him without a team.


“She can’t remember what her life what like before Lamar, and she doesn’t want to go back to that lonely life. Yes, she has a huge family, but she has always felt that she doesn’t fit in with the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Khloe is really low key, and all she has ever wanted was to be happily married and have a ton of kids.

"She thought she had that with Lamar, but obviously doesn’t,” the source concluded.
