Khloé Kardashian in pain following marriage breakdown to Lamar Odom

While she is showing a strong exterior, Khloé Kardashian is in pain following the breakdown of her marriage to basketball player Lamar Odom.

The reality TV star took to Twitter to share a touching photograph of a girl with a mask on, alongside the caption: "She smiles to mask the pain in her heart, she laughs to conceal the tears in her eyes."

The artistic shot has received almost 70k likes from khloé's fans.




In keeping with the meaningful message, just hours before the 29-year-old had shared photos of herself boarding a private jet for Las Vegas, where she will momentarily leave her marital troubles behind.

In a short figure-hugging black dress and high heels, Khloé showed off her sleek exterior.

"5 hour trip to Sin City for @kardashiankollection back to LaLa Land" she wrote alongside another photo of herself striking a pose with her stylist and sister Kourtney on the steps of the plane.


The two Kardashian sisters jetted off to promote their fashion label Kardashian Kollection.

The break will come as a relief to Khloé, who has just split from her husband Lamar.

"They're separated for the moment," a source told PEOPLE magazine. "Khloé is spending many nights at her mom's house and Lamar is at his place [in] downtown [L.A.]"


NBA player Lamar was recently detained for "driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs", according to reports. Shortly afterwards, he hit headlines for checking out of rehab after just one day after seeking help for his drug and alcohol abuse.

A friend of Khloé says that Lamar's friends "thought Khloé saved him. But in reality she never even knew about his drug issues."
