The Kardashians have a Benedict Arnold on their TV show ... a thief ... a jewelry thief ... at least that's what law enforcement sources believe.
TMZ broke the stories ... $250,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's former Tarzana home, and $50,000 cash was pilfered from Kourtney's Calabasas mansion.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... whoever stole Khloe and Lamar's jewelry knew exactly what they were looking for. The thief or thieves took only the very expensive items, leaving the rest behind. They knew exactly where to look and what to take.
What makes it look like even more of an inside job ... there was NO sign of forced entry at either home.
Our law enforcement sources believe someone from the crew of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is the culprit.
We're told crew members are being questioned, but so far no one has copped to the crimes.

Lie Detectors for Everyone
To Find Jewelry Thief
3/4/2014 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Call it CSI: Tarzana ... Khloe Kardashian is demanding lie detector tests for EVERYONE who had access to the jewelry stolen from her home ... and she want fingerprints too.
We're told Khloe suspects the jewelry thief or thieves who pilfered $250K worth of items is someone with direct access ... house staff, assistants, filming crews, inspectors and movers.
As we reported ... the thief or thieves made off with watches, diamonds and gold chains that were left in the house, which was recently sold.
It's likely an inside job because there's no sign of a break-in and the house sits inside a gated estate and the house itself is also gated.
Sources say Khloe does NOT suspect Lamar since he's been in Spain playing basketball.

Cops tell us they think it's an inside job because there are no signs of forced entry.
As you know ... Khloe filed for divorce and has moved on. The house was sold to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco.
The jewelry theft was discovered Monday night ... when Khloe and Kris were there cleaning out the house for the new owner.
As for who did it ... cops are investigating. The house has undergone work over the last month so detectives are focusing on some of the tradesmen.

Khloe Kardashian's divorce isn't all bad -- TMZ has learned, she and Lamar Odom just dumped their massive marital mansion for a HUGE profit ... and now it's a "Big Bang Theory" star's problem.

Now, sources tell us, the home has sold for $5.49 million ... nearly $1.5 million more than the asking price. We're told Khloe's now looking for a new place near her mom in Hidden Hills.
According to sources, the house was purchased by "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco and her new husband ... who obviously don't believe in curses.

No, I'm Leaving You!

Lamar Odom is as done with his marriage as Khloe Kardashian and wants to get married again STAT -- to his basketball career ... sources connected to Lamar tell TMZ.
We broke the story ... Khloe filed for divorce Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. The last straw was Lamar shooting the rap video in which he bragged about cheating on Khloe.
Now get this ... Lamar blames the infidelity on his friends who are "supporting me the wrong way by bringing girls around."
Lamar also casts blame on Khloe ... telling his friends, "I can't be f**kin' with Khloe. She brings out the bad side of me."
Lamar says he needs to "get married" to his basketball career and wants to ignore the past.
And that's the world according to Lamar Odom.
Files Divorce Docs
12/13/2013 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian has just filed court documents to divorce Lamar Odom and restore her name -- TMZ has learned.
As we first told you, Khloe planned to pull the trigger today on her 4-year marriage to Lamar, who has been deep in the world of drugs on and off for the last 2 years.
In the legal docs, filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser, Khloe cites "irreconcilable differences."
As we previously reported, the couple has a prenup so division of property will be a cinch -- they kept all their property separate.
And Khloe is asking the judge to take Odom out of her name, so she is once again simply Khloe Kardashian ... eliminating Odom from her life in every way.
And, Khloe is NOT asking for spousal support and wants the judge to reject any bid by Lamar for the same.
Filing for Divorce
12/13/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom ... TODAY ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her legal docs. The split should be pretty cut and dry -- an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate ... and no kids.
As we reported, Lamar's bizarre freestyle rap video -- in which he brags about cheating on Khloe -- was the last straw in their crumbling relationship. Immediately after TMZ posted the video last month, Khloe stopped wearing her wedding ring.
The end was a long time coming ... Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar's crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he'd OD or worse.
Lamar and Khloe tied the knot in September 2009.
Lamar's Cheating Rap Was Last Straw
12/12/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian is done with Lamar Odom, and the final straw was the alcohol/drug-fueled rap song in which Lamar brags about cheating on her.
The pictures tell the story ... on Nov 23, Khloe was in Australia, boarding a plane for the U.S. She was wearing her wedding ring.
Khloe didn't know it, but TMZ had just posted a video of Lamar Odom, in which her hubby is clearly under the influence of something, rapping about infidelity -- "And when Khloe's out of town I still be on the DL."
Sources connected to Khloe say she found out about the video on the plane and went ballistic. When she landed she was hiding her left hand in her purse. Two days later, the ring was gone and she hasn't worn it since.
As we previously reported, Khloe WILL divorce Lamar. The question is when ... as far as we know, she hasn't decided when to pull the trigger.
Kardashians to Bruce & Lamar
Come to Our House for Turkey!

Kris Jenner has no hard feelings over her break up with Bruce Jenner or the disaster that has become the marriage of Lamar Odom and Khloe ... TMZ has learned both men are invited to Thanksgiving.
Our Kardashian/Jenner sources say ... Bruce has already accepted. We're told Bruce is surprised anyone would even question whether he's going. He's telling friends, "Of course I'm going. It's my family."
The jury's out on Lamar -- he hasn't said yay or nay.
As for why the doors are wide open ... the Kardashians say Bruce and Lamar are family and "always will be."
By the way ... guess who won't be there -- Kim, Kanye and North West. He's in Miami on tour, and they're along for the ride.
I Was Drunk
NOT High On Drugs
11/23/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom admits he fell off the wagon last week ... but he insists he was s**faced drunk, and not cracked out.
Lamar told friends he's seen the video (above) we posted on TMZ, showing him slurring his words in an L.A. bathroom as he rapped with his fellow shirtless friend Jamie Sangouthai.
Lamar says it was a one time deal and NO drugs were involved -- he was specific about 2 drugs he's had problems with -- crack and coke.
So we gotta ask ...
Cracked Out Rap Video
I Cheated on Khloe
11/22/2013 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom's drug problem is only getting worse -- at least that's how it looks in this video, shot this month and obtained by TMZ, showing Lamar incoherently rapping without his shirt on ... talking about drugs, making money without the NBA, and cheating on Khloe Kardashian.
Lamar appears out of it, rapping about making money off his fragrance "Unbreakable," and how he smokes drugs to make "the pain go away." He even drops Kanye's name.
But the crazy part -- Lamar raps, "And when Khloe's out of town / I still be on the DL." His friend then follows up, "You know what it is / We the QU [Queens] pimps / Ask any of these shorties / We ran through their cribs."
Translation: when Khloe's away, Lamar will play.
As we reported, Lamar's currently training hard in Rhode Island, trying to get his ass back in shape for the NBA -- but drugs are still obviously a big part of his life.
