It appears that James Harden wasn’t interested in keeping up with this Kardashian.
Harden was involved in a relationship with Khloe Kardashian for eight months before the couple decided to end it. Now the fans are able to hear his side of the story. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Harden opens up about not liking the spotlight that came with dating Kardashian.
The basketball player spoke of the paparazzi frenzy that was part of the package deal when it came to dating Khloe, “I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that. It wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me.”
It was something that he couldn’t fully comprehend, “I don’t need pictures of myself when I’m driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that.”
Following their breakup in February 2016, Khloe spoke on the breakup during her former talk show, Kocktails With Khloe, where she made comments suggesting that the Houston Rockets player was unfaithful.
While on her show, Khloe said, “I’ve always said, ‘We don’t need to be monogamous. There’s a lot of s–t going on in both of our lives. You live in Houston, I live in L.A. Let’s just see each other when we see each other.’ Why wouldn’t you say, ‘OK, that’s great’? He sought me out, wanted to be committed, then wasn’t committed. I found out he wasn’t, and I got the receipts to prove it.”
However, Khloe wasn’t single for long, it appears that she is now involved with Tristan Thompson, whom she has said she loves.
Harden stated, “I’m not worried about anything but hooping. And that may be why I’m having this kind of success.”
