Via Mail Online reports:
They attended Jay Z’s concert. Hung out after gym sessions. He even stood by her side at mom Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve bash.
But Khloe Kardashian and Matt Kemp – both 29 – are already over.
According to Tuesday’s edition of UsWeekly, the reality star – who filed for divorced from Lamar Odom on December 13 – ‘put the brakes’ on the alleged romance because it just doesn’t look good to be in a relationship so soon after her split from the NBA star.
‘Khloe told Matt it would look bad for her divorce to be dating so soon,’ a source tells the publication.
‘So they have to put on the brakes until it’s finalized.’
Though TMZ reported Khloe and Lamar have a prenup, it could take months, or even years, before the split is completely tied up.
The report also states that it was the doll’s lawyers who ‘advised’ she tone down her public lovefest with the LA Dodger.
And she listened because ‘she wants it to remain clear that Lamar was the cheater,’ added the source.
Lamar – who is hoping to rejoin the LA Clippers – was accused of stepping out on his wife with three different women during the summer.
How does Matt – who lives near Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner in Hidden Hills – feel about all of this? ‘He understood,’ added the insider.
But this doesn’t mean the two cannot fire up their romance again in 2014.
‘Khloe is figuring things out with Matt,’ added the friend. ‘She thinks he’s great.’
The beauty won’t be sitting on her couch missing the baseball pro. She has a lot of work ahead of her.
In addition to sorting out her split from Lamar, which reportedly will include selling off their $4m Tarzana mansion, she will have to promote Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
‘Season 9 of Keeping Up airs January 19th!!! Who’s excited?!’ she tweeted on Monday.
And then there’s the endless promotion of Kardashian Kollection which she also plugged on Monday but to her Instagram account.
Can’t say we’re sad to see Matt back on the market. Do you agree that it was too soon for Khloe to start dating?
