Khloe Kardashian's younger brother Rob reportedly confronted her husband, Lamar Odom, over recurring divorce rumors.
The sock designer, who has lived with Kardashian and Odom for several years, is believed to have asked the NBA star about recent claims made by Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, Polina Polonsky. While Odom and Kardashian are yet to publicly respond to Polonsky's affair claims, Rob, 26, reportedly demanded an explanation from the former Los Angeles Clippers player.
"When Rob asked Lamar point blank if he had cheated on Khloe with criminal defense attorney, Polina Polonsky, he refused to answer the question," a source told RadarOnline.com.
"Rob grew angrier that Lamar didn't respond, and he ended up just leaving the house. A lot of people bash Rob, but he truly has his sister's back, and is very protective of her," the source explained.
Polonsky, who reportedly passed a lie detector test, claims that prior to the alleged six-week tryst she was led to believe that the 33-year-old father of two had ended his marriage to Kardashian, 29. Rob is said to be supporting his sister aid claims that her four-year marriage is under strain.
"Rob has been continuing to stay with Khloe, and has been a big source of support for her at this very difficult time," the source said.
Polonsky's claims come weeks after a woman identified as Jennifer Richardson also claimed to have engaged in an extramarital affair with Odom. Despite the explosive claims made by both women Kardashian and Odom are said to be working on their marriage in an attempt to avoid divorce, at the request of her mother, Kris Jenner.
"Khloe kicked Lamar out of their home several weeks ago and he has been living in different hotels. Kris [Jenner] believes that Lamar has a lot of unresolved issues surrounding his childhood and he needs to work through it," a source said. "She is encouraging Khloe NOT to give up on her marriage and not file for divorce.
