Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is obviously friends with Khloe Kardashian. There has been some debate about whether the two are dating. Various gossip publications seemed to agree that they were, but US Weekly recently reported that Kemp and Kardashian have already split.
“Khloe told Matt it would look bad for her divorce to be dating so soon,” a source reportedly told US Weekly, via the Daily Mail. “So they have to put on the brakes until it’s finalized.”
Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom last month. While TMZ claims the two have a prenuptial agreement that should make the split simple, these things can still take months to finalize. A source added that Khloe’s lawyer advised her to end her relationship with Kemp and she obliged because “she wants it to remain clear that Lamar was the cheater.”
“Khloe is figuring things out with Matt,” a friend of Kardashian’s reportedly said. “She thinks he’s great.”
Depending on who you believe, Kemp could have been anyone from a professional baseball player turned rebound guy to just a friend of the Kardashians who attended their Christmas party. I’m sure the story will change in a week or so.
