Kris Jenner is reportedly urging her daughter Khloe Kardashian to date rapper Drake, following the reality TV star's separation from Lamar Odom.
The matriarch, 57, is said to be eager for Kardashian, 29, to begin dating again and she believes that Drake, who is a close family friend, is an ideal candidate.
Kardashian and Odom, 33, separated in August in the wake of cheating rumors and drug addiction reports however sources claim the reality TV star has not completely given up on her marriage, according to TMZ.com.
"She's shopping for Khloe's next husband... [she] has her eye [on Drake]," a source told InTouch magazine.
"She thinks he'd be perfect for Khloe. Kris is sick of her daughters ending up with jerks," the source revealed.
Drake has been photographed spending time with the Kardashian family on various occasions however he and Kardashian are said to be just friends. The E! star is said to be open to saving her four-year marriage to Odom however Jenner is reportedly pushing for the pair to divorce.
"At Kris' insistence, Khloe did meet with a divorce lawyer…it was something she was forced into doing by her mom. Kris was very heavy handed and said Khloe had a responsibility to her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, and the Kardashian brand to distance herself from Lamar," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
"It's all about the bottom line with Kris, and Khloe could care less about that. She is still holding out hope that her marriage to Lamar can be saved," the source explained.
In July, a woman identified as Jennifer Richardson claimed to have engaged in an extramarital affair with the NBA veteran. Weeks later Polina Polonsky, who is a criminal defense attorney, made similar claims and Kardashian was reportedly left devastated which prompted the father of two to move out of their Tarzana, Calif., home.
"With both mistresses coming out, she can't handle much more. If more women come forward, she will do it," an alleged friend told Life & Style magazine about the possibility of divorce.
"Khloe is a strong girl but the cheating rumors have really worn her down," another friend revealed. "She is humiliated and pissed off."
