We couldn’t be happier that ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ is back, and we knew the season nine premiere would be the most emotional yet — but we couldn’t see the heartbreak coming.
Khloe Kardashian seriously broke down on the season premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Jan. 19, and it definitely broke our hearts too. In the midst of the drama with Lamar Odom, she revealed to her sister that she feels like a “shattered” person now.
‘KUWTK’ Recap: Khloe Breaks Down
“I’ve been in hiding because I’m afraid of people,” Khloe said in the beginning of the premiere when heading out with Kourtney Kardashian. While her sister tried being there for her, Khloe couldn’t help but breaking down.
Paparazzi were waiting outside of Dash when they left the store, and we saw exactly why Khloe was hiding — they yelled out, ‘Are you going to pick up Lamar from Skid Row?’
“I’ve been putting myself aside to hopefully save somebody else’s life,” Khloe told Kourt through tears. “And now that I’ve come to terms that I can’t, I have to move on w my life and that means changing a lot.”
Khloe Reveals Lamar’s Secret Life
Lamar had always been close with Rob Kardashian, so it was shocking when even Rob said he hasn’t heard from him. Then Khloe said it’s because Lamar uses prepaid phones and then gets new ones — so strange! After that, Rob said she definitely needs to move out of the house.
The rest of the family was extremely worried about Khloe, too. When the Jenner boys came over to the house, Brody Jenner asked Khloe what was going on.
“[Lamar] stays at our loft downtown,” she told Brody. “He wanted to go see a movie, he was in good spirits today. He wanted to go with me . . . I said, ‘I can’t.'”
It was so heartbreaking to see Khloe publicly going through all of this! But that wasn’t the only part of the premiere that really broke our hearts.
Bruce & Kris Think They’re ‘Better Apart’
While Khloe was going through her own relationship problems, the rest of the family was also going through a lot — Bruce Jenner told Kris Jenner that even though the lease was up at his Malibu home, he wanted to stay there and not move back in.
“We both have to admit that the energy between us seems to be better when we’re apart right now — we’ve been together for 23 years. It seems to be we’re doing better being apart, and just seeing each other here and there,” Bruce said. “To be honest with you I can’t see it going back.”
At the end of the day, they both decided that they were happier that way — but they had to break the sad news to their family, who wasn’t happy — Kendall Jenner, specifically was completely heartbroken.
