Khloe Kardashian recently filed for divorce from Lamar Odom, and there are already reports that she is rebounding quickly. Over the weekend, a gossip outlet claimed that Khloe is secretly dating Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. The speculation grew even greater when Kemp posted a photo of the Kardashians’ family Christmas tree on his Instagram account.
Kemp and Kardashian have reportedly been hanging out and attending concerts together for at least the past month, but People Magazine insists they are nothing more than friends.
“They are just friends and have been for a long time,” a source reportedly told People. “Khloé is absolutely heartbroken right now [over Lamar] and dating someone is the last thing she’s thinking about.”
Another person close to the Kardashians confirmed that Kemp and Khloe are just friends, but would not rule out a romantic relationship in the future.
“It could be heading [romantic] in the future, but Khloé wasn’t spending time with him when she was still with Lamar,” the source reportedly said. “She absolutely wasn’t. People need to remember that she and Lamar haven’t lived together since June.”
We know better than to believe anything anyone says about the Kardashians by now — including the Kardashians. It’s possible Kemp and Khloe are just friends and were trying to hide so people like us wouldn’t talk about it. Then again, if they weren’t shy about showing their faces in public together people would be more inclined to believe that they have nothing to hide. No one would be surprised if they confirmed they are dating in the near future.
