Khloe Kardashian Denies Dating NFL Player
Khloe Kardashian insists she and Odell Beckham Jr. have engaged in nothing more than casual flirting.
Rumors the pair sparked up a romance were fueled after the 31-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was snapped sitting in the football player’s lap at Drake’s Memorial Day holiday party on Monday, just days after they were spotted together at Scott Disick’s 33rd birthday party in Las Vegas on Friday.
However, Kardashian set the record straight on the true nature of her relationship with Beckham Jr. on her Twitter account Wednesday, insisting there is nothing serious going on between them.
“TWIMC: Sorry to burst your bubble. When a couple drinks, a little flirting and an invasion of privacy collide things may look crazy,” she wrote, before adding in another tweet: “However…this ain’t that and that ain’t this.”
This isn’t the first time this week Kardashian has addressed the situation on social media. On Tuesday the celebrity published some cryptic tweets, writing, “It’s really not that deep,” before following up the message with another post captioned “mood” that teamed with a cartoon picture of Kanye West pulling many unimpressed faces.
However, sources previously revealed a future romance between Kardashian and Beckham Jr. is not off the cards, although she is not interested in seriously dating anyone anytime soon.
“Khloe is interested in Odell. She thinks he is very sexy and is her type,” a source told E! Online. “She wouldn’t mind going out with him… She is not looking for anything serious… She is all about dating this summer.”
Kardashian’s current interest in casual dating may be related to the fact she refiled for divorce from estranged husband Lamar Odom last week. After originally separating from him in 2013, she decided to postpone divorce proceedings so she could take care of the former basketball player as he recovered from a drugs overdose in October. While she served as caretaker for Odom, Kardashian’s eight-month relationship with NBA star James Harden took a dive, with the pair deciding to end its romance in February.
Meanwhile, Beckham Jr., 23, was previously linked to actress/singer Zendaya Coleman after they were spotted at a Grammys afterparty together in earlier this year.
