After marrying former Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom and dating Houston Rockets star James Harden, Khloe Kardashian has moved on to yet another NBA star, the Cleveland Cavaliers Tristan Thompson. According to Larry Brown Sports, the two have been spending a lot of time together recently including spending time together at a mansion in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

Khloe has been rumored to have been dating singer Trey Songz for the last few months, but it’s unclear whether the two were actually in a relationship or just friends. Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom back in July, marking the second time Khloe has filed divorce papers. She changed her mind after the first filing due to Odom’s brush with death last fall.
Now that Odom’s back on his feet, Khloe finally seems ready to move on as she realized there’s only so much she can do for her ex-husband. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been spending time focusing on her health, her career, and having fun. Exactly what a 32-year-old single woman should be doing with her life.
As for Thompson, he’s coming off of a whirlwind couple of months after winning the 2016 NBA Championship as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Thompson averaged 7.8 points and 9.0 rebounds during the regular season and 9.7 points and 8.5 rebounds during the postseason. He had a big hand in the Cavaliers coming back from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals to win the seven-game series.

Prior to Khloe, Tristan had been dating Instagram model Jordy Craig which is kind of ironic considering Craig had previously dated former NBA player Baron Davis and rapper Tyga, who is currently dating Kardashian’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner. Dating within the family isn’t anything new for the Kardashian clan as Blac Chyna is currently pregnant with Rob Kardashian’s kid despite already having a kid with Tyga.
The 25-year-old Thompson is fresh off of signing a five-year $82 million max contract extension during the 2015 offseason. He’s become one of the integral role players for the Cavaliers as they’ve ascended to the top team in the NBA. It’ll be interesting to see if this relationship is just a summer fling as it would seem highly unlikely that Kardashian would find it appealing to travel to Cleveland during the season. After all, who wants to be in Cleveland in the winter?
As for Khloe Kardashian, she’s currently working on a new show for E! titled, Revenge Body. Six episodes of the show have been ordered and each one-hour episode will feature two people who get completely made over through the help of personal trainers and stylists.
Executive producer Jeff Olde said, “We are so excited to partner with Khloe Kardashian to help these deserving people seek the ultimate revenge. By tapping her unlimited resources, Khloe offers transformations of true Hollywood proportions.”
Khloe’s trainer said that she had a big hand in making the “revenge body” mantra so popular.
“Khloe probably sparked that — or if nothing else, kept that fire alive or threw some gas on that already existing fire — when she really ramped [her workouts] up and then put a book out [Strong Looks Better Naked ] that highlights that,” Gunnar Peterson told The Daily Dish.
Hopefully, this show will do better than Khloe’s previous E! show, Kocktails With Khloe, which got canceled earlier this year after one only season.
