Khloe Kardashian may have been all over NFL hunk Odell Beckham Jr. over the Memorial Day weekend, but don’t be mistaken—she has her heart set on a different athlete, who happens to be an ex-boyfriend!
The 31-year-old still wants James Harden, who she dated for a few months last year.
A source told OK! exclusively, “She’s desperate to make the relationship official again, now that things are definitely kaput with Lamar Odom.” Khloe filed for divorce (for a second time) from Lamar last week.
So why does she want James back, even though she publicly dished that he cheated on her, which led to their demise? “You have to remember how much James put up with, at the time of Lamar’s overdose—Khloe adores him for that,” said the insider. “He hung in for moths and was her rock behind the scenes, even though everyone was saying Khloe and Lamar were going to reunite.”
During Lamar’s hospital stay after overdosing at a Nevada brothel last year, many did question why James remained with Khloe, especially after she withdrew their divorce papers she had filed in order to still be legally bound to Lamar!
And though Khloe is desperate to make the relationship official again, James doesn’t sound too keen on getting back with her.
Added the source, “James is cautious, he doesn’t like the Kardashian circus and he is privately quite wary about Khloe’s feelings towards Lamar.”
However, the Kardashians seem to always get their way in the end, and it sounds like Khloe has a shot! “But he’s hugely attracted to her and enjoying this re-connection,” revealed the source.
