On Dec. 13, the same day that Khloe filed divorce papers to end her marriage to Lamar Odom, a report claimed that she had already moved on to a different Los Angeles athlete. And as word got out that Khloe might now be a big Dodgers fan, the reaction was mixed, to say the least.
Khloe Kardashian is officially a single woman after filing papers to divorce Lamar Odom on Dec. 13, and she may not be wasting any time hopping back into the dating pool. Khloe has reportedly been seeing Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder (and Rihanna ex) Matt Kemp, and she’s already “acting like she’s in love,” according to Media Takeout. But before we get ahead of ourselves, how do the fans feel about it?

@TheRealMattKemp you and Khloe would make a really cute couple. If you two are happy, then your real fans are too! Don’t listen to the hate!

But others were not as pleased with the news of the budding romance (though, that’s partly because they’re jealous Khloe got to Matt before they could):
MATT KEMP DATING KHLOE KARDASHIAN!? BABY WHY!??? #lawditcantbe Don’t do this Kemp.

Matt Kemp, you better not be dating Khloe Kardashian… That’s way too much of a distraction. You don’t need that Matty. You don’t need it!!

Khloe Kardashian ‘In Love’ With Matt Kemp
“Matt and Khloe are dating, but it’s not serious yet,” a source told Media Takeout on Dec. 13. “But Khloe’s already acting like she’s in love… Khloe’s like that — she loves hard, but she moves on quick.”
Quick is right — the news of this fling hit on the same day Khloe officially ended her relationship with husband Lamar. Though there’s evidence that suggests that things have been over between Khloe and Lamar, and that things have been developing between her and Matt for awhile. On Dec. 12, Matt posted a photo of Kris Jenner‘s Christmas tree, leading us to suspect that he’s already got an in with the family!
He wouldn’t be the first athlete to be welcomed into the Kardashian-Jenner household!
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you on board with this possible relationship, or are you against it?
