James Harden reveals why he stopped dating Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian claimed last year that she broke up with James Harden because he was unfaithful, but the Houston Rockets star remembers the relationship ending on much different terms.

In a wide-ranging feature from Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated, Harden opened up about dating a member of the Kardashian clan. Simply put, he doesn’t think it’s a coincidence that he is having one of the best seasons of his career now that Khloe is out of his life.

“I’m not worried about anything but hooping, and that may be why I’m having this kind of success,” Harden said. “I didn’t like all the attention. I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that.

“It wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me. I don’t need pictures of myself when I’m driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that.”

Harden has moved to point guard under Mike D’Antoni, and it is suiting him well. In addition to averaging 28.8 points, he is also leading the NBA with 11.3 assists per game. His previous career high was 7.5 assists last season, so Harden has added a new element to his game. His 8.1 rebounds per game are also by far a career high. If he says no longer being chased by the paparazzi has contributed to that success, who are we to question it?

“I think he wanted to take his fame out for a spin, and I think he decided he liked it better in the garage,” a Rockets source told Jenkins.

Kardashian is now engaged to Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson. Interestingly enough, Harden says he is happy to be out of the Hollywood spotlight but is said to be dating a famous R&B singer. Even if that is the case, it doesn’t seem to be affecting his game. Call it another example of the Kardashian curse.

LeBron doesn’t want Tristan Thompson bringing Khloe Kardashian around Cavs?

The relationship between Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian has gotten serious in a hurry, and some of Thompson’s teammates may feel uneasy about that. According to one report, LeBron James doesn’t want Thompson bringing Kardashian around the team.

A recent story from HollywoodLife.com claims LeBron is unhappy Thompson is dating a “drama magnet,” and the two players had a discussion about it before the season opener on Tuesday night. They even supposedly made a childish bet.

“Tristan isn’t taking any crap from his teammates anymore. As far as he’s concerned, Khloe’s coming to every damn game she chooses,” the insider reveals. “Tristan told LeBron straight up before last night’s game that Khloe was coming and that was that.” Boom!

But wait, there’s more. “Tristan told LeBron that Khloe is his good luck charm, and that if they lost last night, then he’d consider asking her not to come in the future,” the source adds. How cute is it that he thinks Khloe is lucky?!

“They obviously won, and after the game, Tristan had an I-told-you-so moment with LeBron,” the insider also tells us. LeBron could only smile!

This story is hard to believe on many levels, but would you be surprised if LeBron was concerned having a Kardashian around would create unnecessary distractions? Let’s not forget that one NBA player got wrapped up in a total sham marriage with Khloe’s sister Kim. And we all know about Khloe’s link to Lamar Odom and at least one other NBA star.

The Cavs are trying to defend their NBA championship by keeping up with the already-crowned Golden State Warriors. The last thing LeBron wants is someone on the team becoming the next star of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

Khloe Kardashian showed off engagement ring from Tristan Thompson?

Khloe Kardashian was in attendance at Quicken Loans Arena Tuesday night to proudly root her boyfriend Tristan Thompson on in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ season opener. The Cavs received their championship rings before the game, and Kardashian took the opportunity to show off some hardware of her own.

But was she flashing an engagement ring?

In a photo she shared on social media, Kardashian flaunted her bling-covered ring finger next to Thompson’s:

Kardashian included a little heart emoji along with the photo, which has people thinking that was her subtle way of confirming the engagement rumors that recently surfaced. Though, none of those rings really look like the type of engagement ring a Kardashian would receive. Those typically include a stone that is roughly the size of a small piece of fruit. Plus, the rings on Khloe’s hand appeared to be quite large, so perhaps they were all Thompson’s.

Thompson and Kardashian have only been dating for a few months, but things appear to be moving quickly. That could have something to do with the latest news we heard about Khloe and Lamar Odom.

Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom reportedly reach divorce settlement

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are finally getting close to officially ending their marriage.

According to a report from TMZ, Kardashian and Odom have reached a settlement and signed off on their divorce. Both filed legal documents on Friday after reaching a property settlement and are waiting for a judge to approve them.

Kardashian first filed for divorce in 2013, but there have been various events that resulted in the process not being finalized. Khloe vowed to stay with Odom last year to help him get back on his feet when he nearly died of a drug overdose, and she even rented a home for him near hers for some time. Kardashian filed once again this year, supposedly telling Odom that she wants to move on and start a family with someone else.

The timing of the filing is interesting, as a gossip publication recently reported that Kardashian is now engaged to the NBA player she has been dating for a few months. Perhaps that is why things are finally moving along with her divorce from Odom.

Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian are reportedly engaged

Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson has only been dating Khloe Kardashian for a few months, but things are apparently moving very, very quickly.

According to a new gossip report from InTouch Magazine, Thompson and Kardashian recently got engaged.

“Tristan got down on one knee and asked Khloe to marry him,” a source told the publication. “She’s delighted to be engaged and can’t wait to tie the knot early next year.”

The source added that the couple plans to spend at least $1 million on the wedding and will invite around 400 guests. They are supposedly already looking at private estates in Santa Barbara and Malibu as possible venues.

As far as we know, Khloe is still married to Lamar Odom — though they have been working to finalize their divorce for quite some time.

Kardashian clearly has a thing for pro athletes and NBA players in particular. If you remember, Khloe was dating another NBA star as recently as the beginning of the year but broke things off after claiming he cheated on her.

Khloe Kardashian seemingly goes from one professional athlete to the other, and the latest could be Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson.

According to Us Weekly, Thompson and Kardashian were spotted hanging out together in Cabo San Lucas over the weekend. They reportedly spent time together on the beach and also rode ATVs and jet skis.

“They were very flirty and laughing a lot,” a source told Us.

The tabloids have been all over Thompson and Kardashian, with TMZ recently reporting they were spotted at a Beverly Hills mansion together before heading off to a nightclub. A source for PEOPLE took it a step further, claiming Thompson and Khloe are dating.

“Khloe and Tristan have been seeing each other for a little bit,” the source said. “He’s a really nice, good guy and she seems very happy with him. It’s unclear for now if it’s going to turn [into] anything super serious, but for now they’re having a good time together.”

Kardashian, who is currently separated from Lamar Odom, has dated MLB star Matt Kemp and NBA star James Harden. More recently, she was linked to an NFL player who said the rumors surrounding him and Khloe ruined his chances with another woman.

Kardashian’s relationship with Thompson seems like it’s a bit more than friendly flirting at this point.

Cleveland Cavaliers fans may have to start worrying about the dreaded Kardashian Kurse striking the team.

TMZ Sports reports that big man Tristan Thompson has been spending a lot of time with Khloe Kardashian lately. They say the two were at a mansion together in Beverly Hills Thursday.

Kardashian and Thompson also were at the same club over the weekend and left within minutes of each other.

TMZ Sports says they are not sure if the two are dating.

Khloe Kardashian has a long list of professional athletes she’s been rumored to have dated. That ranges from James Harden to Matt Kemp to estranged husband Lamar Odom. Let’s just hope this latest report doesn’t ruin anything for Thompson like it did for this guy.
