Khloe Kardashian isn’t feeling the love — and the socialite’s feelings of isolation have nothing to do with her hoopster husband, Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom.
We hear Queen of Mean Vanessa Bryant — who has a reputation of tormenting Bryant employees — has been going out of her way to ostracize the new Mrs. Odom. The Bride of Kobe frowns on Lamar and Khloe’s brief courtship and has refused to invite Khloe to several social functions for Laker wives.
In Touch Weekly informants write: “According to an insider, Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, ‘hates’ Khloé and her entire family, whom she sees as attention-grabbing fame-seekers. And instead of hiding her feelings, Vanessa refuses to have anything to do with the 26-year-old. ‘She won’t sit anywhere near Khloé at Lakers games,’ the insider reveals, adding that because of Vanessa’s dislike of her, Khloé has been shut out of the tight-knit circle the other Lakers’ wives have formed. ‘At a dinner for the wives, Vanessa didn’t want to invite Khloé,’ the insider shares. ‘She said Khloé is a ‘fake wife,’ and she didn’t want fake wives there.’ The feeling is mutual. The insider says Khloé and Vanessa have ‘gotten into fights’ in the past. And at the Lakers’ NBA Finals game on June 17, Khloé brought Lamar’s two children, as well as her mom, Kris, and siblings Kim, Rob, Kendall and Kylie — and they all stayed far away from Vanessa.”
It’s been a bit of a tough week for Khloe public relations-wise. She recently gifted her hubby with a $400,000 Rolls Royce as a championship congratulatory present, but had to take to her Twitter to address widespread speculation that she must have used Lamar’s money to purchase the gift.
“People r so pathetic,” the Kourtney & Khloe star Tweeted. “Y would I give some1 a gift w/ their money? That’s lame. I actually make my own money. Shocking I know. Stop hating!”
