It’s been a week of highs and lows for Khloe Kardashian. The reality TV star has been adjusting to her X Factor hosting gig amid a series of tabloid woes from divorce rumors to lawsuits – which may explain her unusual Twitter outburst.
“Don’t you ever f**k with my family! Don’t try me because you really don’t know,” Kardashian tweeted on Wednesday.
While the reason for the angry tweet remains unclear, perhaps it has something to do with two troubling events this week, tabloid reports claiming her marriage to L.A. Clippers forward Lamar Odom is on the rocks and an additional lawsuit against her cosmetic line.
A myriad of weekly tabloids are claiming that Kardashian’s fertility struggles are causing turmoil between her and Odom. Kardashian, 28, and Odom, 33, have reportedly been trying to have a baby for over two years. The couple married in 2009 after an infamous 30 day courtship.
Odom’s 2011 departure from the L.A. Lakers and brief stint with the Dallas Mavericks also likely caused added strain, as the couple moved to Dallas last year only to move back a few months later. They have also put their E! Show “Khloe and Lamar” on indefinite hiatus so that Odom could focus on his basketball career and new season with the Clippers.
Professionally, Kardashian is also facing some added stress, with the filing of a second lawsuit against her cosmetic line Khroma, which she has with sisters Kourtney and Kim.
Two companies have accused the Kardashians of sealing their trademark, a Beverly Hills-based makeup company called Chroma, and a second company registered as Kroma.
The Kardashians line, promoting affordable glamour, is set to be released for the holidays, but the court is still out on whether these legal issues will be resolved by then.
Regardless, the stress can’t be good for Kardashian, as she tries to have a baby with Odom, ignore divorce rumors and adjust to her new gig as co-host of Fox’s The X Factor. ”It’s a learning process, I think,” she said of her new job, “you know, practice makes perfect.”
