Remember those rumors that Khloe Kardashian and James Harden split after Kardashian’s husband, Lamar Odom, was hospitalized after an alleged drug overdose?
Yeah, those rumors aren’t true.
In fact, on Sunday night, Kardashian was seen out on the town with her boyfriend, James Harden. The couple were spotted entering Lure nightclub in Hollywood, though the two left separately later in the evening. It was the first time Khloe and James have been seen together since Odom was hospitalized in October.
According to information from a Hollywood Life source, Khloe Kardashian and James Harden were more than thrilled to spend time with one another during their date. The celebrity news website reported that Harden and Kardashian spent a lot of their time “french kissing.”
“Khloe and James’ date was filled with very close PDA and heavy french kissing. (Khloe) feels safe in his arms and is ecstatic that they are back to where they were before all the Lamar drama!”
The same Hollywood Life report went on to say that Khloe has been super stressed through the entire Lamar ordeal, and some time away with James did her good.
“(Khloe Kardashian) needed this break and get back to normal because she has been overly stressed. A few cocktails were had as well which made the night go very smooth. They are very happy with each other.”

Khloe must have been feeling pretty relaxed and confident in her time spent with James Harden, as she shared a silly video of Harden to her Instagram account sometime after their date. See the video below.
Though Khloe Kardashian appered to have fun with James Harden Sunday evening, Khloe readily admits that she is still married to her husband, Lamar Odom. Khloe and Lamar were married in 2009, and the pair filed for divorce in 2013. The divorce had not yet been finalized when Odom collapsed in a Las Vegas-area brothel from an alleged drug overdoes in October, and initially, there was speculation that Khloe and Lamar would get back together romantically.
But in the days after Khloe Kardashian called off her divorce from Lamar Odom, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star indicated that a romantic relationship between herself and Lamar isn’t on her mind right now. Khloe has come out to say that yes, she is still married to Lamar, and yes, she is still dating NBA player James Harden.
Kardashian has said that she called off her divorce from Lamar because there simply was no rush to finalized the proceedings. Some have said that Khloe Kardashian withdrew the divorce papers so that she could continue to make medical decisions for her husband, and while that may have played into the decision, Khloe told People magazine she did it because Khloe loves Lamar.
“There are too many other important things, too many medical things. It’s not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now. I loved him always, and I will always love him. I don’t believe love is fickle. I believe when you love someone, you are allowed to love from afar. You don’t have to be with that person in order to love him.”
While Khloe admits to loving Lamar, she also seems to be very happy with beau James Harden. Throughout the entire ordeal, reports have indicated that James has been extremely supportive of Khloe’s situation with Lamar Odom.
The date on Sunday was the first time Khloe has been seen hanging with James Harden, but it’s not the first time the reality TV star has been seen supporting her basketball-playing boyfriend. At the end of October, Kardashian was spotted court side at Harden’s Houston Rockets game. Find out more in the video below.
