James Harden is looking to spread some holiday cheer instead of making negative headlines. The professional basketball player took 20 single moms and their children holiday shopping on Sunday, December 20.
The Houston Rockets player and his mother brought the single mothers and their children shopping to the South Houston Target store. But first, he dressed them up in red “Team Harden” T-shirts and blue Santa Clause hats, of course. Harden explained to KHOU why he wanted to give back to the 20 single moms and 40 children.
“Growing up, my mom was by her lonesome, so I had to do a lot, me, my brother, and my sister. So I can kind of relate.”
This is the fourth consecutive year in a row that James Harden, his mother, Monja Willis, and his siblings have given back to these single mothers. The children were overwhelmed with joy as they filled their shopping carts with toys and other goodies. Even Harden got emotional at one point.
In addition, BBVA also gave each mom a $100 savings certificates for each child taking part in the special shopping to open their own savings account.
Khloe is obviously tired of being blamed for James’ 12-14 losing streak. Khloe fought back at the ruthless sports fans during a live chat, which was later posted on TMZ, where she responds to her haters, and tells them exactly what they can do.
“First, don’t give me that much power AND [James is] the f*****g s**t….so suck my d**k and my balls.”
Rumors have also been swirling that Harden can’t keep up with all of the men and the drama in Kardashian’s life. She was reportedly spotted backstage with former boyfriend French Montana at The Weeknd’s concert earlier this month. Although the exes barely interacted with each other at the LA show, Harden is changing his mind about dating Khloe. He’s tired of making headlines for dating the famous Kardashian and he feels that he can no longer trust her an inside source told the Hollywood Life.
“James has enough on his plate right now and Khloe on top of it is too much for him to eat. His team is playing poorly and to add insult to injury, Khloe’s out kicking with French Montana. His team is giving him shit about that because everybody in the world knows French and Khloe did the bunny hop together.”
Even Harden’s teammates have convinced him to go it alone, the source added. While Harden admits he’s not a jealous person, he’s tired of being known as one of her boyfriends.
“One of his teammates told him that he should just get himself a groupie and call it a day because Khloe’s not worth all the headache. James isn’t a jealous person. He could understand if she was at Lamar’s beside. That he gets. But her out at a concert with Her ex French? That’s not cool. He’s wondering if Khloe’s the right woman for him.”
It sounds like the professional athlete seems focused on his basketball career and doesn’t like the constant media attention about their relationship. It’s probably another reason why Harden wanted to do something nice for the single mothers and their children. He probably wanted to make some positive media attention, for a change. Kardashian is obviously very famous, as every single little thing she does creates headlines, so it makes sense as to why Harden would consider ending their relationship.
