matt kemp khloe kardashianWith her divorce papers solidly filed, Khloe Kardashian may not be having the holliest, jolliest time right now. But her official split from husband Lamar Odom doesn't have to mean a gloomy Christmas next week. In fact, it sounds like she's all set to spend the holiday with rumored new flame Matt Kemp, as long as the stars align and their schedules match up. Although, the latest is that they're just friends ...

Rumors about the supposedly platonic pair surfaced soon after Matt posted a pic of the Kardashians' Christmas tree, and now, HollywoodLife.com's sources are dishing about what brought about their holiday plans ...

Apparently, Khloe's mama Kris Jenner "really likes Matt and thinks he’s so adorable and likes the way Khloe lights up when he’s around,” says the insider. “He’s been to their house a little often these past few weeks and an invitation has been extended for him to spend the holidays with Khloe and the family.” Aww.

Still, it sounds like it's definitely way too soon to see this as a sign that Khloe and Matt are together. Apparently, Khloe's "absolutely heartbroken right now [over Lamar] and dating someone is the last thing she’s thinking about.” While it sounds like there may be potential there for the future, "they’re friends and they’re both not trying to begin anything romantic so soon. ... Matt’s helping her out a lot by being there, being her workout partner ... He’s been a good friend to her and she’s cried on his shoulder, literally, because she’s still hurting after having to divorce Lamar.”

Okay, okay, we get it: Khloe and Matt will most likely be leaving the kissing under the mistletoe to Kimye and Kourtney and Scott -- well, at least this year.

How do you feel about Khloe and Matt's platonic Christmas plans?
