While they have yet to confirm they’re officially an item, ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star Khloe Kardashian certainly played the part of a supportive girlfriend at a basketball game featuring rumored boyfriend James Harden. So sweet!
Things are heating up between Khloe Kardashian, 31, and NBA star James Harden, 25, if this new snap is anything to go by! Following her own family reunion in honor of little sis Kylie Jenner’s birthday, the reality TV star headed straight to the basketball court to cheer on her rumored beau at the Drew League playoffs game in Los Angeles on Aug. 8. She’s his biggest fan!
Khloe, who has played the role of sideline cheerleader before with ex-husband, Lamar Odom, 35, stopped by the King Drew Magnet High School in Compton, Los Angeles to cheer on James, nicknamed “The Beard,” in a Drew League playoffs game on Aug. 8.
And she must’ve been happy with what she saw, as James’ team, LAUNFD, beat the Citi Team Blazers 83-72 in the match-up. James scored 25 points! Obviously, the NBA hero is currently in the off-season with the Houston Rockets at the moment, but at least he’s keeping in shape. Khloe looked gorgeous courtside wearing a cleavage-baring top, black pants and aviator shades.
It’s amazing she found time in her day — given her hectic schedule in helping Kylie celebrate her 18th birthday. The day before, Aug. 7, Khloe and her sisters started off Kylie’s birthday weekend with a family dinner at Nobu in Malibu, Calif., and they were surprisingly joined by Caitlyn Jenner, 65, and mom Kris, 59.
Khloe Kardashian & James Harden: Why Kim Is Praying He’s ‘The One’
Despite remaining coy on her relationship status, Khloe has been spending a lot of time with James. They were first spotted hanging out in Las Vegas during the Fourth of July weekend, and it appears that things for them have naturally progressed as they see more and more of each other.
The relationship has certainly piqued the interest of Khloe’s big sis Kim, 34, who hopes that James is “The One” for her little sis. In fact, at Kylie’s graduation party, where James was Khloe’s date, on July 23, Kim and Khloe had a little pow-wow over the whole situation.
“Kim took Khloe’s hand, looked up in the sky and said, ‘Please let this man be the one for my sister,’” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kim then told Khloe that she doesn’t want to meet anymore boyfriends of hers after this. She was stern with Khloe, and also told her life isn’t one big party.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Could James be “The One” for Khloe? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
