The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star was struck down with the virus earlier this year, and after feeling "lonely and bored" for 16 days in isolation, she cobbled together a new pal, Quarantina, out of glasses and a neck pillow.

She said: "I decided to have an imaginary friend, Quarantina.

"I'm just getting lonely and bored and I need someone to keep me company.

"Quarantina is literally saving me right now.

"'Cause, I need something to do all day long."

Khloe's ex Tristan Thompson - the father of her two-year-old daughter - joked she had turned into Tom Hanks' character Chuck Noland from 2000 film 'Cast Away', after he made a "friend" out of a volleyball and smeared blood when he was stranded on an uninhabited island.

Tristan said: "It's like Tom Hanks. 'Cast Away'."

But the pro basketball player did offer Khloe some emotional support.

He told her: "If you ever need a friend to talk to, I'll stand outside your window downstairs.

"Like, back in the day, when guys would throw rocks at girls' windows to talk to them. We could always do that, take it back to the early '90s."

After her 14th day of quarantine, the 36-year-old reality star admitted Covid-19 was the "worst sickness" she had suffered, because she had been "shaking for no reason", struggling to breathe, and "coughing uncontrollably".

Khloe later tested negative and was able to reunite with her daughter, but she didn't receive the reaction she was hoping for.

Speaking on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians', she said: "I wake her up and True, I don't think even noticed I was gone.

"It makes me feel good that she was so well taken care of and that she felt so loved … but I'm the mom, give me something. Not really what I had in mind."
