Khloe Kardashian and James Harden are going strong, despite reports, and last night, on New Year’s Eve, the reality star proved it with a telling clip on Instagram. Following OK! Magazine’s report on December 30, which alleged Harden had dumped her on Christmas Day, Khloe Kardashian took to social media to share a video of herself and Harden locking lips as the ball dropped.
Although the clip appears to have since been removed, TMZ captured the video and shared a copy on January 1.
Khloe Kardashian began dating Harden, who plays for the Houston Rockets, in early summer, and she had made a number of public appearances with him in the months that followed. Then, in October, their relationship was briefly sidelined due to Lamar Odom’s drug overdose.
After learning her husband was found unconscious, Khloe Kardashian immediately flew to Odom’s side and remained there for days until he awoke from his coma and was transferred to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood, California. Since then, Khloe Kardashian has continued to visit her husband regularly, and spent time with him during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
As Khloe Kardashian’s dedication to Odom continued, rumors began swirling about the possible end of her and Harden’s relationship, but the two have been spotted in Los Angeles and in Houston since those rumors first surfaced, and with last night’s video clip, it is extremely clear a breakup has not yet happened. That said, a source told People Magazine earlier this week that Khloe Kardashian’s relationship with Harden has been impacted by Odom’s health crisis.
“[Khloe Kardashian] is with him now in Houston. She went to his game last night and bowling. They are still together and having fun.”
“It hasn’t been easy. James obviously has wanted to see [Khloe Kardashian] more and be with her in [Texas] more, but she’s felt like she needed to stay in L.A. to be with her family and to deal with Lamar stuff,” a source close to the family added. “That has put some strain on things.”

Prior to Khloe Kardashian’s relationship with Harden, she and French Montana had an on-and-off relationship, which ended in early 2015.
On the currently airing 11th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian’s love life has been a hot topic for her family, including mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kim and Kourtney. During the last few new episodes, Khloe Kardashian’s impending divorce from Odom was discussed, and other issues regarding Odom also arose. In December, Jenner was seen facing the wrath of Khloe Kardashian and her sister Kim after they learned she had given Odom Khloe Kardashian’s cell phone number without consulting her first.
“It infuriates me and it hurts my feelings. I love that love that she has for him… but sometimes you have to keep relationships separate,” Khloe Kardashian said during a confessional.
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian’s sister, Kim, was just as upset and labeled Jenner a bad mother for her behavior.
