Khloe and Lamar Fighting

A friend close to the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com Kris Jenner is trying to brainwash Khloe into fighting with Lamar Odom in order to boost ratings on ‘Khloe & Lamar’ — but Lamar refuses to fall for it!

Kris Jenner is infamous for being an overbearing stage mom, but this behavior might take the cake — even for her! In a desperate attempt to get more viewers for Khloe & Lamar, the 56-year-old reality maven is demanding her daughter, Khloe Kardashian, fight with her husband, Lamar Odom, which is ultimately destroying their marriage.

A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Kris is constantly telling Khloe that marital conflicts equals ratings! Kris has convinced Khloe that if it weren’t for Lamar, she would not have her own reality show and that if she wants another season she needs to embellish the conflicts in the marriage because that’s what viewers want.”

Sadly, Kris’s “made for TV” drama is affecting Khloe and Lamar’s real life relationship for the worst, but she doesn’t seem to care.

” Kris is blind to the fact that Khloe and Lamar’s relationship is suffering because of reality TV,” our source says. “Lamar is a pretty laid back person but he has had enough. He feels like a puppet and he has already told Khloe that he is not going to create drama on the show for ratings, in fact, he wants out completely.”

Lamar was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team to the Dallas Mavericks earlier this year, but was then demoted for a couple games because he hadn’t yet found his groove and wasn’t playing to his fullest potential — something he blames partially on becoming part of the Kardashian reality world.

“He wants to concentrate solely on his basketball career and he can’t do that if he isn’t in the right frame of mind,” the insider says, explaining, “He never ever thought his life would become so consumed by the Kardashian franchise.”

Do YOU think Khloe should listen to her mom or her husband? We’d hate to see her marriage crumble because of a reality TV show, especially since they seem like such a good fit.
