By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Reality star Khloe Kardashian is going through a divorce with her estranged husband Lamar Odom, but sources close to the Kardashian sister have reportedly confirmed to various news outlets that she has a budding romance occurring with Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp. He denied anything is going on, but some folks are skeptical about his denial.
But now sources close to Khloe are telling US Weekly that she has decided to put her romance with Kemp on hold for now because she doesn’t want backlash from the new romance to hurt her image.
A source tells the publication:
“Khloe told Matt it would look bad for her divorce to be dating so soon. So they have to put on the brakes until it’s finalized.
“She wants it to remain clear that Lamar was the cheater.”
The source goes on to say that Matt “understood” Khloe’s concerns, and he’s agreed to step back for a while.
