Khloe Kardashian appears to have a new man in her life.
Just months after refiling documents to end her marriage to Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian has stepped out with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, who was most recently linked to model Jordan “Jordy C.” Craig.
Following a nightclub outing in late August, TMZ revealed photos of Khloe Kardashian and her potential new man together in Beverly Hills, California, where they were reportedly enjoying a few friends as they hunted for a new home. A short time later, they reportedly boarded a jet and headed to Cabo.

“Khloe Kardashian and NBA player Tristan Thompson have been spotted together as of late, and on Thursday, September 1, the pair jetted off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, together for the holiday weekend,” an Us Weekly report revealed to readers on September 3.
According to the report, Khloe Kardashian’s longtime friends, Malika and Khadijah Haqq, were also included in the ride, which landed in Mexico on Thursday evening.
“Kardashian wore a long black tank dress and a wide-brimmed black hat; Thompson wore a black tank top and black workout short. Both donned black slide sandals to complete their monochromatic ensembles,” the magazine continued.
At the end of last year, after learning her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, had suffered a drug overdose as he partied at a brothel in Nevada, Khloe Kardashian rushed to his side and stood by him as he recovered for months. She also filed a request to have their divorce proceedings thrown out, which was granted.
In the months that followed Odom’s near-death experience, Khloe Kardashian remained supportive of the former NBA star and even rented him a home near her family in Calabasas, California. Then, as they began to film the 12th season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, rumors of a possible reunion began to swirl. Although Khloe Kardashian had initially filed for divorce in December 2013, she appeared to be open to the idea of a reconciliation with Odom on the early episodes of Season 12. In one particular episode, she and Odom even threw around the idea of a second wedding if things were to work out between them. Unfortunately, they did not.
In early spring, as Khloe Kardashian and her family celebrated Easter, reports began to surface claiming Odom was drinking again and possibly using drugs, and within a couple of months, Khloe Kardashian had cut ties with Odom for good — and refiled her divorce papers.

In May, when Khloe Kardashian’s second divorce filing was confirmed, a source spoke to People Magazine, revealing that Odom was not blindsided by the reality star’s decision.
“This was always the plan. The divorce has never been officially off. Khloé was waiting for the timing to be right,” a source told the magazine.
“She was loyal for a long time and taking care of him, but she’s not a babysitter and needs to move on with her life,” a second source explained. “She’s honestly fine and it’s more of a formality at this point. She’s there for him and they’re in regular contact and she wishes him well. She’ll always be there for him. But as far as their marriage is concerned, that’s over and has been for quite some time. It was time to make it official.”
