James Harden and Khloe Kardashian have remained together, despite Lamar Odom’s ongoing health crisis, which has kept the reality star at his side for nearly a month straight.
On October 13, following about four months of dating James Harden, Kardashian rushed to Odom’s side after learning he’d been found unconscious at a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. At the time she arrived to Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital, Odom was in a coma, and he remained unconscious for the next few days before ultimately waking up and beginning to progress in a positive manner. From there, Odom was transported to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and during his transport, which happened via medical helicopter, Khloe was at his side.
Following several days in Los Angeles, Kardashian emerged from the hospital for the first time to attend the baby shower of her sister, Kim. Then, after returning to Odom’s side, Kardashian left once again days later, traveling to Houston to support James Harden during his first 2015-2016 season game with the Houston Rockets.

Meanwhile, as Kardashian attempted to continue on with her relationship with James Harden, she and Odom filed documents to have their divorce thrown out, which immediately led to speculation regarding a possible reconciliation. However, according to Kardashian, a romance with Odom was nowhere near her mind.
“There is so much more medically and emotionally that we have to go through in order to even think about anything romantically,” Kardashian explained to Yahoo! Style, according to a report by Too Fab on November 3. “This is a very serious situation with a lot of layers. He has a long road ahead of him, and I will be there by his side. I will always love him unconditionally. That will never waver coming from me.”
While Odom continues to recover, Kardashian claims she and James Harden are doing “great.”
“Right now, at this moment — I can’t even tell you what’s going to happen in 30 minutes, which I’ve learned recently — but James and I are great, and we’re on a great page. As of this moment, he’s been very supportive. He and I are doing just fine.”
“Not everyone needs to know everything about you — I know that sounds crazy coming from me,” Kardashian continued. “There’s already so much access to [my family], I wanted to keep a little percentage of my life just for me.”

As Kardashian supports Odom while dating James Harden, a source claims the reality star is feeling a bit overwhelmed. On November 3, a source revealed the following to Hollywood Life in regard to Kardashian’s balancing act with James Harden and her husband:
“Between Lamar and [James Harden], Khloe feels like a rubber band. She’s being stretched incredibly thin. Her heart is big and she loves both men. She spends time with each of them as much as she possibly can because she loves them. She doesn’t look at it as a chore or obligation.”
James Harden began dating Kardashian over the summer, and while their romance was kept fairly private, the relationship made headlines in August, when Kardashian threw an over-the-top birthday party for James Harden on a yacht off the coast of Los Angeles. During the bash, Kardashian’s boyfriend, James Harden, was treated to a fireworks display and visited by a number of famous faces, including Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall, Kylie, and Kris Jenner, as well as their partners, including Kanye West, Corey Gamble and Tyga.
