Khloe Kardashian has so far refused to speak out on her divorce from basketball star husband Lamar Odom, with the TV star keeping a dignified silence on her marriage breakdown since it was announced she had filed papers last Friday (December 13). But in the face of rumours about her friendship with baseball star Matt Kemp, Khloe has spoken out.
Addressing her 8.5 million Twitter followers on Wednesday the 29-year-old wrote:
"This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul. Please, I don't need the extra rumors and BS right now".
The "BS" Khloe is referring to is no doubt the stream of rumours that have cropped up in recent days over her close friendship with Kemp.
Khloe was spotted heading to the gym with the Dodgers athlete on Friday morning, the same day papers were filed by her attorney Laura Wasser, putting her divorce in motion. Despite being spotted with Matt numerous times over the past few weeks, a source close to Khloe told EntertainmentWise this week that "they are JUST friends!!! Nothing more".

The newly single star is reportedly just not ready for a new relationship after the breakdown of her marriage with another source telling People.com:
"They are just friends and have been for a long time," following the rumours, which were spurred on after the baseball star's Instagram post of Kris Jenner's Christmas tree last week.
"Khloé is absolutely heartbroken right now [over Lamar] and dating someone is the last thing she's thinking about," another Kardashian insider adds: "It could be heading [romantic] in the future, but Khloé wasn't spending time with him when she was still with Lamar. She absolutely wasn't. People need to remember that she and Lamar haven't lived together since June."
