Khloe Kardashian has possibly found love with a former Los Angeles Laker who isn’t Lamar Odom, and he has something in common with her famous family — he’s also appeared on a reality show.
According to E! News, 30-year-old Khloe Kardashian and 45-year-old Rick Fox were spotted enjoying a dinner date on Thursday night. If there’s something romantic going on between the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the former NBA player, it looks like they’re trying to keep it a secret for now — they arrived separately at the Casa Vega restaurant in Sherman Oaks, and they arranged for their date to begin just before the stroke of midnight.
Fox told a paparazzo that he and Kardashian are just good friends, and E! News didn’t say that the pair went home together after enjoying their midnight munchies. It’s possible that they just have something casual going on, but perhaps their friendship will eventually develop into something more.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Khloe has hinted that she’s still hung up on ex-husband Lamar Odom. The reality show star has been trying to move on from her failed marriage by dating rapper French Montana, but their on-again, off-again relationship probably isn’t making it easy for her to forget about the stability that she once had in her life. Maybe she’s finally looking for something that’s less of a roller coaster ride.
Rick Fox is definitely a good-looking guy, and he’s not afraid to date famous ladies. According to People, he was married to Vanessa Williams from 1999 to 2004, and he dated Elisha Dushku for a few years. Fox was last linked to 90210 actress AnnaLynne McCord.
Fox also has something in common with a few of the Kardashians — he’s competed on Dancing with the Stars. Rick finished in sixth place during Season 11 of the show, Rob Kardashian came in third place during Season 13, and Kim Kardashian finished 11th during season 7. If Rick can’t win Khloe’s heart, perhaps he can convince her to sign on for the show — Khloe looks like she’s in the best shape of her life, so maybe she’d become the first Keeping Up with the Kardashians star to take home that coveted mirrorball trophy.
During an interview with Cosmopolitan, Khloe Kardashian revealed that her divorce from Lamar Odom played a part in her decision to get in shape and lose weight.
“When me and Lamar were having issues, I decided to channel my energy into working out…if I went out with my girlfriends I would be hounded by paparazzi and made to feel more humiliated. The gym was my only refuge. I could put music on and dance around with my girlfriends and be silly.”
Fox is an athletic guy, so he’d probably go on a few gym dates with Kardashian. Maybe he’d also convince her that she doesn’t need a waist trainer to look great — Khloe’s slim bod in the recent Instagram photo below is the result of her hard work, not a weight loss fad.
