It is not surprising that only days after Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from her estranged husband Lamar Odom due to “irreconcilable differences”, rumors would start spreading about the newly single woman. The latest gossip on Kardashian is that she is dating the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp.
Despite the many sightings of the two together, sources close to Kardashian and Kemp remain firm in saying that they are just friends. “They are just friends and have been for a long time,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Khloé is absolutely heartbroken right now over Lamar and dating someone is the last thing she’s thinking about.”
Another source adds that, while the friendship could turn romantic later, Kardashian never spent time with him while she was still with Odom. “It could be heading romantic in the future, but Khloé wasn’t spending time with him when she was still with Lamar. She absolutely wasn’t,” the source said. “People need to remember that she and Lamar haven’t lived together since June.”
The rumors were fueled by an Instagram post made by Kemp of Kris Jenner’s Christmas tree. The photo’s caption read: “Best time of the year!! It’s gonna b a Cali Christmas this year.” Is Kemp planning on spending Christmas with the Kardashian bunch? Although it hasn’t been confirmed, it is known that the two seem to be spending more and more time together. They attended a Drake concert together on November 25, a John Legend concert on December 1, and then a Jay Z concert on December 9.
