Khloe Kardashian Puckers Up To James Harden After Lamar Odom Encounter

Khloe Kardashian is not letting her scary run-in with ex-husband Lamar Odom get to her. Instead, she’s been seen cuddling up to her new rumored boyfriend, James Harden.

Khloe Kardashian headed to Houston after her awkward meet-up with Lamar Odom. According to a previous report via E! News, the reality star wanted to meet up with her new NBA boyfriend, James Harden.

Khloe and James were seen grabbing a bite to eat at Chipotle. Several fans caught the new couple out and out as they shared the photos on Twitter. Khloe looked happy and calm as she wore a black short-sleeve dress with aviator sunglasses. Meanwhile, James kept it cool and casual in a white T-shirt and black jeans.

According to an inside source, the youngest Kardashian sister is in Houston to celebrate the Houston Rockets player’s birthday this upcoming weekend. Harden’s birthday is actually on August 26, but it looks like he wants to celebrate a little earlier this year.

Khloe and James were previously seen puckering up to each other at Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party, which was held at The Nice Guy restaurant in West Hollywood on Sunday, August 9. Khloe and James were looking into each other’s eyes as their heads went in for a romantic kiss.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wore a sexy black velvet dress with mesh cut-out stripes. Although Kardashian and Harden hadn’t yet confirmed their relationship, the two appeared very snuggly at the bash, as previously reported via the Daily Mail.

The 31-year-old received an unexpected surprise by her former husband around 7 in the morning on Wednesday morning. Khloe was seen leaving her SoulCycle class as Lamar emerged from the bushes and screamed at her. Khloe was able to escape Lamar and drove away without speaking to the former basketball player.

Some fans wondered if Kardashian’s scary run-in with Odom was a set up for an upcoming episode of KUWTK. Insiders close to the television star told E! News that she did not expect to see him there.

“She was not expecting him to be there at all. She has been trying to move on but he is not allowing that to happen and it’s all very upsetting. What he did crossed the line. For him to suggest [in TMZ video] she was somehow OK with him ambushing her is not true.”

The insider also hinted that Khloe is doing her best to move on with her life and hopes the same for Lamar. As for the former Lakers player, he claims that he didn’t attack her and insists their meeting was a set-up.
