Khloe Kardashian Dating Matt Kemp Following Divorce Filing
Khloe Kardashian is reportedly dating baseball player Matt Kemp and has been for months prior to her officially filing of divorce from estranged husband Lamar Odom.
Khloe Kardashian Filed For Divorce Friday, Dec. 13
Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom on Friday, Dec. 13, following months of speculation of a split. Odom, a professional basketball player who had been signed to the Lakers when the two initially met and married, has been plagued with stories of drug addictions and allegations of cheating, and he was arrested for DUI Aug. 30. Furthermore, the two have not made any public appearances together since the summer, save for being photographed together at a Kanye West concert in October, and Kardashian was recently spotted without her wedding ring. Suspicions were also raised when the Kardashian's released their annual Christmas card, from which Odom is noticably absent.
Khloe And Matt Kemp Are Casually Dating
Though the divorce has been reported as a long time coming, news of Kardashian’s rumored relationship has taken many by surprise. Sources close to the couple say that Kardashian and Kemp are keeping their romance casual and are not exclusively dating.
“They are keeping it open and not so serious because Khloe doesn’t want to rush into anything new and Matt might be traded soon and be away from L.A., which would make the relationship long-distance. They are currently having fun and seeing what happens,” a source told Hollywood Life.
Kardashian only recently dropped the Odom from her last name on Twitter and Instagram.
Matt Kemp Spending Christmas With The Kardashians?
Though there hasn’t been much photographic proof the two are dating, Kardashian was seen going to the gym Friday before filing for divorce with Kemp. Many have also pointed out that Kemp recently shared a photo of the Kardashian Christmas tree on his official Instagram Dec. 12, writing, “Best time of the year!! It’s gonna b a Cali Christmas this year.”
The photo is nearly identical to one posted by Kris Jenner just one day before.
Kemp, an outfielder for the L.A. Dodgers, was previously linked to Rihanna.
