There may be hope after all! Khloe Kardashian and James Harden were quickly moving forward in their relationship until Lamar Odom’s medical emergency interrupted their romance. However, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned James will wait for Khloe.
Ever since Lamar Odom, 35, was hospitalized after being discovered unconscious in a legal brothel, his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, 31, has not left his side. She’s been so committed to helping him recover that the KUWTK star has cut everything else out of her life, including her boyfriend James Harden, 26. And while that initially worried us, HollywoodLife.com has now EXCLUSIVELY learned James is willing to wait for Khloe and continue their relationship once Lamar fully recovers.
James is willing to give Khloe the space she needs to deal with this crisis. “There’s no hard feelings. James gets it – Khloe needs to be by Lamar’s side as he fights to make a full recovery,” a source tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “That’s very noble of her and James truly believes Khloe’s making the right decision. It’s all good. He’s not slamming the door on the relationship.” We love that he’s so understanding.
As the star player for the NBA’s Houston Rockets, the three time All-Star also has his own career to focus on. “Who knows, maybe they’ll pick up the pieces when Lamar’s better. Maybe not. But just like Khloe, James has a lot on his plate too. His main focus since the preseason began is to win this season’s NBA championship! He’s in the zone right now and the fewer distractions he has in life at this point, the better.”
As much as she may love James, Khloe knows that she needs to be by her ex-husband’s side while he recovers. “Khloe and James have had very little voice communication this past week. Her entire focus has been on Lamar. Khloe simply can’t focus on James right now and to his credit he understands why,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Not to be rude, but he’s the furthest thing from her mind. Khloe’s put the relationship on the back burner for the moment. Right now she needs to be there for Lamar.” Hopefully her and James will still be able to work things out, once this crisis has passed.
