Khloe Kardashian may be going through a rough patch with her hubby Lamar Odom, but that doesn’t mean she’s rebounding with another man.
Khloe has been spotted out and about with rapper The Game numerous times since news broke that Lamar was struggling with drug addiction. Naturally, rumors began to circulate that the two were shackin’ up. Koko and her rapper bestie were spotted partying the night away earlier in the week and he later came to her rescue, defending the reality star against the paparazzi.
Now, The Game is opening up about the situation and shutting down all the rumors. So why has the Kardashian gotten so close with a rapper? You’ll never guess why…
“The pictures that you see of us out together are because she is a part of my 60 Days of Fitness team,” he told Us Weekly. “Khloe is my friend. She is like a sister. We have never slept together and will never be sleeping together.”
And it’s not just Khloe that Game is getting close to. “Lamar is my homie and her husband,” he said. “I wish people wouldn’t spread such false rumors.”
In the wake of this controversy, Khloe was spotted out with her hubby and former NBA baller Odom for the first time in months. The couple was spotted driving to momager Kris Jenner’s house early this week. (Kris and her longtime husband Bruce also recently announced their separation – even though they have no plans to divorce).
Lamar was seen out again this week, this time traveling to New York. It was rumored the former L.A. Clipper was in the Big Apple on basketball business. A source has since confirmed to RadarOnline that claim is untrue, “because no NBA team would sign Lamar without a successful stint in rehab, and it would have to be for an extended time.”
“Lamar is in no physical or mental condition to be playing basketball,” the source added. “He couldn’t complete simple conditioning exercises right now.”
So why the trip? Radar claims Lamar was headed to New York City to see his two children. An insider close to the family says he hasn’t seen his kids in several months.
“Lamar does talk to them on the phone, but in the last few weeks, not as frequently as they were used to,” the insider said. “The kids absolutely know what is going on with their dad. Their mom tries to protect them from the headlines about Lamar’s drug use and cheating allegations.”
Unfortunately, TMZ reports that Lamar bailed on that trip last minute.
