NEWS: Khloe Kardashian Is Hosting the Kardashian Thanksgiving Dinner This Year

A source close to Khloe later told ET that it was a "minor infection," and she was seeking treatment by her doctors. "She is run down as she has been burning the candle at both ends," the source said. "She will be fine, but needs some rest."

A big part of that stress comes from all of the drama she's been dealing with, surrounding her former husband, ex NBA player Lamar Odom, who remains hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Khloe appeared on the Today show on Thursday, where she opened up about the 36-year-old's road to recovery after he was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, on Oct. 13. She also confirmed that they remain "separated," despite calling off their divorce in October.

"He's OK. Every day is different," she explained. "The good thing is he's off of medical machines that will keep him alive. He's learning how to walk again, and [continuing] cognitive therapy and speech therapy. They think, like, within a year and a half to two years, he might, you know -- mentally -- be fully recovered, but they don't know."
