Khloe Kardashian: ‘James Harden Cheated on Me’
Khloe Kardashian has accused her ex-boyfriend, basketball ace James Harden, of cheating on her after pressuring the reality star to commit to an exclusive relationship.
Kim Kardashian’s younger sister recently split from the Houston Rockets player after embarking on a romance last July.
Now the Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty has opened up about the failed relationship after she was quizzed about her love life by actress Lisa Rinna during a Los Angeles taping of her Kocktails with Khloe talk show.
During the candid chat, which will air on Wednesday, Kardashian claimed Harden broke his own vow of monogamy.
“I don’t want to put up with people that you want to be monogamous, but then you’re not monogamous,” she explained. “I’ve always said, ‘It’s long distance, we don’t need to be monogamous. There’s a lot of shit 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’.”
However, Harden reportedly rejected the idea and instead pleaded with Kardashian to commit herself to the romance.
“Why wouldn’t you say, ‘OK, that’s great,'” she questioned. “Instead (of) forcing a relationship. ‘Let’s be committed, let’s be committed’, he wanted that. I mean, I wanted it but I wanted to be realistic. I was like, ‘It’s unfair, I’m working so much right now… You’re in Houston… We don’t need to be committed.’
“He sought me out, he wanted to be committed… then wasn’t committed.”
Kardashian goes on to insist she has evidence to prove Harden was unfaithful.
“I was like, ‘Great, this guy is in it for the long haul, let’s do it’, and then I found out he wasn’t,” she added. “And I have the receipts to prove it!”
The 31-year-old’s relationship with Harden was further complicated by drama surrounding Khloe’s estranged husband, former sportsman Lamar Odom, who was found unconscious after collapsing due to a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel in October. Kardashian, who previously also dated rapper French Montana, flew to be by Odom’s side and has continued to aid in his recovery process.
