List of Famous Athletes That Kim Kardashian, Khloe and Kendall Jenner Have Dated in the Past
The Kardashians are renowned for their tightly-knit family bond that they each cherish. Even though they sometimes find themselves in the middle of conflict, the sisters find a way to hash it out and move forward. Besides the fights, all five of them have something pretty impressive in common. And that’s none other than the fact that they’re each prosperous independent women with growing empires of their choice. However, another thing the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have in common is the list of athletes they’ve dated in the past. This comes after rumors of Kim dating an NFL star recently surfaced. Take a look at all the professional athletes that Kim, Khloe, and Kendall have dated in the past as per People:
1. Reggie Bush
Kim Kardashian dated the New Orleans Saints running back, Reggie Bush between 2007 and 2009, per Cosmopolitan. They met each other through Paris Hilton - a mutual friend of theirs. They were quite private with their relationship and split in 2009 due to their hectic schedules and possibly their inability to spend time with each other. Although they did separate, the duo even tried to work things out when they got back together after a few months of the year they split. However in 2010, even after adopting a dog, they decided it was best to remain friends. An insider revealed that Bush had some “issues” with regard to Kim’s busy lifestyle, per People.
2. Miles Austin
After breaking up with Bush in 2010, Kim went on to date American Football player Miles Austin. He played for the Dallas Cowboys as a receiver back when he met the mother of four. The two really seemed to hit it off as they were often spotted on numerous dates. However, after merely three months, they decided it was better to be apart than together, per CBS. “There’s no huge reason except their distance apart,” claimed one source. Another one further explained, “They tried to keep it as low profile as possible when they were together. They were acting as if they were single or just having fun, but they never were - it was the real deal.”
3. Kris Humphries
The SKIMS mogul not only dated but married Basketball player Kris Humphries who was her first husband shortly after breaking up with Austin Miles. They got married to each other 9 months after dating in 2011. However, due to certain differences, they ended up filing for divorce merely 72 days after their wedding, per The Sun. Humphries was originally from Minnesota and at the time he played for the New Jersey Nets which is now famously known as the ‘Brooklyn Nets.’
4. Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian appeared to be smitten with Lamar Odom back when she met him in 2011, per People. They were so in love that they got married after just one month of meeting each other. Odom at the time played professional basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers. Even though their marriage was speculated to have been going great, they were dealing with some serious trouble in paradise. Given Odom’s cheating scandal, substance abuse, and more, by December of the same year, they decided to go their separate ways. The couple officially got divorced in 2016.
5. James Harden
Amid Lamar Odom’s divorce process, Khloe was romantically involved with James Harden in 2015. The Houston Rockets player was spotted relaxing by the pool with Khloe in Las Vegas. Things appeared to be going swell with them to the point that the 'Good American' ambassador seemed confident of things working out. According to People, Khloe even gushed about Harden. “His season is starting, and I’m just allowing everything to unfold. If it’s ever too overwhelming [for Harden] then I understand that well.” The duo’s relationship took its curtain call in February 2016 because Khloe believed Harden was reportedly not “monogamous” while they were together.
6. Tristan Thompson

However, even though they seemed to be going strong, rumors of Thompson’s alleged affairs came to light. At the time a source claimed that “Tristan has been constantly cheating on Khloe.
