After just a few months of dating, it is now rumored that NBA basketball star James Harden dumped Khloe Kardashian.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, James Harden and Khloe Kardashian called it quits just after a few months of dating. Although they have not confirmed their relationship in public, the pair is definitely sharing romantic feelings towards each other. The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" reality star has often been seen out in public with the basketball star.
However, just before they actually make their relationship public, a source claimed that Harden dumped Khloe on Christmas. This is mainly because they can't find a common time to spend with each other. It didn't help that Khloe has been busy this year, especially with the launch of her book and the hospitalization of her ex-husband Lamar Odom. It is also an especially busy time for the basketball player since he is in midseason with the Houston Rockets, where he is reportedly underperforming.
"Khloe's not sure what she and James are. She's been so wrapped up with her family and Lamar and trying to absorb as much joy as she can out of this holiday season that she's oblivious to the drama," a source claimed.
It can be noted that Harden wasn't present in a couple of family festivities including Thanksgiving and Christmas, but this could also be because he played with the Houston Rockets on December 23 in Orlando, Florida.
"Yes, there are issues between them. The distance is a big one and Khloe has a lot on her plate, particularly Lamar, and she wants to be by his side every day as he gets stronger and healthier," the source added.
The source also said that Khloe has already exerted all her efforts and could no longer do more. The insider added that the reality star remains understanding if it is indeed Harden's decision and would love to remain friends with the basketball player.
Meanwhile, a report from In Touch Weekly claimed that Harden has had enough of the media attention since he started dating Khloe.
"It was too much for him. The media scrutiny, her family's meddling and her mood swings drove him over the edge. He told her they can still hookup, but anything serious is off the table," the source said.
In a previous interview, Khloe said that she is allowing things to unfold between her and Harden. This was when Odom was rushed to the hospital and she remained by his side to tend to his needs. She also added that although Harden has been supportive of her, she would understand if things would be too overwhelming for the basketball player.
