Kris Jenner has spoken out about Khloe Kardashian's divorce - admitting the situation is "challenging".

The 58-year-old reality star admits her daughter's split from her ex-husband Lamar Odom, 34, has been difficult for Kardashian and the extended family following her divorce filing on December 13, but has been impressed by how her daughter has dealt with the crisis.

"What Khloe is going through is definitely challenging, I'm not going to lie. It's also a very interesting time for her because it's very cleansing. She's also showed this side of her that I didn't know she had. I always knew Khloe was strong, but I never dreamed that she had this kind of strength," Jenner told People Magazine.

Despite the heartache, the matriarch says Kardashian, 29, is remaining positive and is determined to use the experience in a positive way.

"It's definitely life lessons that she will be able to apply and use later in her life. She's learned a lot from this situation," Jenner said.

Kardashian cited "irreconcilable differences" in papers to end her four-year marriage to Odom, following numerous allegations he is using crack-cocaine and has cheated on her with several women, however, Jenner insists she still has love for the basketball player.

"I still love Lamar and I love Khloe, and I hate, hate they're going through this. But if it's something that Khloe feels she needs to do, then I'm 150 percent behind her. We all lean on each other, we have to," she said.

Kardashian has since been linked to Dodgers baseball player Matt Kemp but recently took to Twitter to brand the rumours "bulls..t".
