Khloe Kardashian got some much needed R&R this weekend in the form of a fun date night with beau James Harden. After their first night out in public together since Lamar Odom’s accident, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why Khloe’s so relieved to spend time with him.
Khloe Kardashian, 31, and boyfriend James Harden, 26, hit the town Nov. 8 for the first time since 36-year-old husband Lamar Odom‘s alleged drug overdose. Now an insider is telling HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why she left feeling so relieved. We have the whole scoop here.
Khloe has been Lamar’s best friend, caretaker and bodyguard since he allegedly overdosed in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13. For the first time since then, she got to have a normal date night with her boyfriend James on Nov. 8, and it was a major source of relief for her, according to a source. “On their recent date night, Khloe was just happy to be away from the reality of what her life is right now,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It was great for her to get away from the medical drama and Lamar, because she’s really been through it.”
Apparently James restores some sense of regularity to Khloe’s life, and it’s making her very happy. “Being with James makes Khloe feel safe, secure and just normal,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “As far as their relationship is concerned, there’s no drama, it’s easy, relaxed and he’s very zen.” James is like the calm eye in the storm of all the drama she’s constantly surrounded by lately.
Even though Khloe is enjoying the down time with James, it’s not enough to help her shake her feelings of responsibility toward Lamar. “She’s not going to stop seeing Lamar, making sure everything is ok with him at hospital, and just checking in,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He was the great love of her life, so she’ll always have that bond with him.” We’re so glad Khloe has someone special to lean on through all of this stress, because even the strongest people need a little support sometimes.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Khloe stay with James or Lamar?
