Odell Beckham Jr. says he never dated Khloe Kardashian, and people thinking he did may have complicated matters in his relationship with another woman.
In a feature story that will appear in the August issue of GQ magazine, Beckham addressed the infamous photos that showed Kardashian getting awfully cozy with him at a party at Drake’s house over Memorial Day weekend. Khloe claimed it was innocent flirting. OBJ says he didn’t even know her before that night.
“Whoever was there taking the pictures inside of a private party, inside of a private area of the house — we were in the kitchen of the house, where there was only like 15 people. It’s just kind of like…’dating’?” Beckham told GQ, as shared by Gavin Evans of Complex. “I just met this person. This is maybe the second conversation we’ve had.”
A video, which you can see here, also supposedly showed Odell and Khloe at a club together in Las Vegas. One gossip site claimed they had been seeing each other for a few months and were ready to take the relationship public, though that never happened.
Beckham also hinted to GQ that the photos and rumors spoiled his chances with another woman.
“Things go like that, and then some other girl that I may have been talking to hear about it, and now it’s more drama, more commotion in my life,” he said. “And I’m sitting here trying to explain my situation to somebody, and it’s really not even a situation.”
Such is life for an NFL player who happens to be one of the best in the business. As we know, that wasn’t the first time Beckham found himself at the center of celebrity dating rumors. If the Pro Bowler is going to attend parties where Hollywood stars hang out, he’ll have to get used to gossip rumors following him around.
