After Khloe Kardashian revealed that James Harden cheated on her, we couldn’t help but notice a pattern. Both James and Lamar Odom, her great loves, cheated on her, and both are NBA players. Should she kick these guys to the sidelines?
To be fair, it’s obvious that not all NBA players are going to cheat on their significant others. But when it comes to Khloe Kardashian, 31, she’s had no luck on or off the court. Both Lamar Odom, 35, and James Harden, 26, cheated on the Kocktails with Khloe host, and the fact that they’re both NBA big shots may not be a coincidence.
Khloe revealed in an upcoming episode of Kocktails with Khloe just why she and James broke up. He allegedly cheated on her, and boy, she has the receipts to prove it! She told guest Lisa Rinna that when she started her relationship with James, she told him she wanted to keep their relationship open; she was always working, and they were doing the long distance thing — her in Los Angeles, him in Houston, where he plays for The Rockets. But James still insisted they be exclusive.
“He wanted to be committed. Then, wasn’t committed. So Koko had to let him go, go. It’s literally everything on a platter. I’m not telling you I’m not going to hang out with you … So I was like great, this guy is in it for the long haul, let’s do it. Found out he wasn’t and I got the receipts to prove it.” Ugh, James. That’s not how you treat a partner, even if you make the sorry excuse that you’re lonely. You break up and move on!
We’re all familiar with the Khloe-Lamar saga. They had a fairytale marriage, until Khloe found out the former Laker was chronically cheating on her and had deep issues with drugs. But she’ll always love him, and his serious health issues stemming from his October 2015 overdose brought them back together. She stopped their divorce proceedings for the sake of his healthcare, and is even considering giving their union another try romantically. There’s a serious chance that she’ll get hurt again, but the heart wants what it wants.
So is the problem that Khloe keeps picking dudes from the NBA to date (and marry), or is that she’s just unfortunately gotten tangled up with the wrong guys — no matter their profession. Maybe she should take a deep breath before reigniting her reunion with Lamar, take a step away from the b-ball court, and consider someone with a different profession? In the end, this is all up to Khloe and nobody else.
HollywoodLifers, should Khloe stop dating NBA players?
