Khloe Kardashian’s ex is now dating Ashanti

The pair split in 2016

Khloe Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend James Harden is dating Ashanti, according to reports.

The Houston Rockets player dated the KUWTK star after her split from Lamar Odom, however, the pair ended things in 2016.

Now, according to sports gossip blogger Terez Owens, the NBA star has moved on with R&B singer Ashanti.

“James Harden put Ashanti up at a Houston hotel, then she sat with his family at the game and he bought her flowers,” a source close to Harden told Terez.

“They are 100% in a relationship,” they added.

Ashanti, who split from rapper Nelly in 2012, raised eyebrows when she posted a number of snaps on her Instagram story this week as the Rockets topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 122-104, winning their first-round series 4-1.

James and Ashanti have not yet gone public with their relationship, and it looks like they may want to keep it that way as James previously admitted that he didn’t like the level of fame that came with dating a Kardashian.

He told Sports Illustrated, “I wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me. I don’t need pictures of myself when I’m driving my car.

“Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that,” he added.

Harden was first linked to Ashanti earlier this month, according to Sports Gossip.

Since Harden and Kardashian split in 2016, the reality TV star has developed a reputation as a wrecking ball in the NBA.

The news comes amid reports that Khloe’s current boyfriend Tristan Thompson cheated on her while she was pregnant with their baby daughter, True.
