James Harden and Khloe Kardashian are still a couple, at least according to an October 19 report by Radar Online. According to the site, James Harden has remained in support of Kardashian and their relationship despite her current dedication to her estranged husband, Lamar Odom.

Although James Harden has remained completely silent about the current state of Odom, who was found unconscious at a brothel last week, Radar Online’s source has revealed he’s been in constant contact with his girlfriend, Kardashian, with whom he regularly exchanges phone calls and text messages.
“They have mostly been exchanging text messages, and there have been phone calls too… [James Harden] has been very supportive of Khloe being at Lamar’s bedside. If [James Harden] wasn’t confident in his relationship with Khloe, he would be concerned.”
That said, claimed the source, James Harden “isn’t stupid” and isn’t convinced Kardashian was fully over Odom. But since he’s focused on preseason games and his upcoming season with the Houston Rockets, he’s too busy to get too consumed with the situation.
“Khloe has all of her attention focused on Lamar and while that is to be expected, no one knows what the future holds,” Radar Online’s source continued regarding the reality star’s relationship with James Harden.

According to the report, James Harden began seeing Kardashian over the summer, but their relationship was quickly plagued with rumors of infidelity when James Harden was allegedly caught in a “compromising position” with a stripper from Philadelphia known as Nelly Wit Da Jelly. A photo of their alleged rendezvous was posted to Nelly’s Instagram account but quickly removed after fans identified the basketball star.
As for Kardashian’s relationship with Odom, the current girlfriend of James Harden filed for divorce from the former Los Angeles Lakers player in December 2013, amid rumors of drug use and a number of affairs. However, due to her holding onto hope during the months that followed, their divorce papers weren’t signed until this summer, and because a judge hasn’t yet signed off on the split, they are still technically married.
“Khloe dragged her feet for such a long time on the divorce from Lamar not only because she still had feelings for him, but wasn’t having much luck in dating other men… French Montana, that fizzled out very quickly. She only signed off on the divorce settlement after she began dating [James Harden]. Now she has the attention of two men that love her. Who knows what will happen!”
As James Harden focuses on his career, Kardashian remains at Odom’s side as he continues to recover from a reported drug overdose last week. Although it will reportedly be a long, hard road to a full recovery for Odom, he has made good progress in the last several days. After coming out of his coma on Friday, Odom began communicating with Kardashian, as well as other family members who have come to Las Vegas, where he is currently receiving care at the Sunrise Hospital. Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Liza Morales, Destiny Odom, Lamar Odom Jr., JaNean Mercer, and Kobe Bryant are among those who have visited Odom.
Following news of James Harden’s current relationship status, Radar Online published a second article, which featured photos of Odom covered in blood and barely breathing after being discovered unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada.
