Khloé Kardashian romance becomes public

No matter how hard anyone tries, no one can privately date a Kardashian-Jenner sister.

Reports surfaced in 2015 that Khloé Kardashian and Harden were an item. The pair attempted to keep things under wraps for a little while before the paparazzi caught on. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the athlete were together right before her relationship with fellow NBA player Tristan Thompson who is the father of her daughter True.

Trina addresses rumors, before a swipe on Twitter

Just before the Kardashian-Harden romance broke, there were rumors that the he was dating Trina. As Jocks & Stiletto Jill noted, “Da Baddest B—-” rapper appeared on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club to clear up those rumors saying that they “were really just friends” and hadn’t reached “BEARDstatus. However, a tweet she posted when the news he was dating Kardashian came out had some people thinking otherwise.

Fans still aren’t totally sure who that was about though since Kardashian dated hip-hop artist French Montana too after Trina was linked to him.

Amber Rose comments on ‘special’ friendship with Harden

In February 2015, reports connected Harden to Amber Rose. During an interview on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, the model was asked about that and admitted there was something going on between them.

Rose said that they had a “special friendship” but that things hadn’t gotten physical at that point but could the following night (which was Valentine’s Day) if Harden “acts right.”

Ashanti was tied to Harden for years

Another beautiful woman who was tied to basketball star at one time is Ashanti. There were fans buzzing on Twitter as as early as 2016 that they spotted the duo hanging out together in Las Vegas.

Then in 2018, the website TerezOwens.com jumped on a story after they were informed that the singer and Harden were seeing each other. The media outlet even posted a video on social media of Ashanti at a Houston Rockets game when Harden was still playing on that team.

“James Harden put Ashanti up at a Houston hotel, then she sat with his family at the game and he bought her flowers. They are 100% in a relationship,” a source told the site.
