Khloé Kardashian insists that she’s focused on herself after once again breaking up with Tristan Thompson last year, but rumors are swirling that the reality star already has a brand new man in her life.
The Good American founder is dating a private equity investor she met through her sister Kim Kardashian, according to a source who spoke to Page Six. They were introduced at a dinner party a few weeks ago and immediately hit it off. People also reported the news on Monday with an insider explaining that while things between them are “still in the early stages,” she’s “feeling really good” about it. They also noted that despite those photos of Khloé and her ex Thompson arm-in-arm after their daughter True’s dance recital over the weekend, the two hardly ever speak except for when it comes to issues surrounding co-parenting.
And although there’s plenty of sources confirming her new relationship, Khloé says she’s still enjoying being single for the present moment. On Friday, she responded to an Instagram post on the Kardashian Social account highlighting a Deuxmoi rumor that claimed she has been dating “another NBA player.” The reality star commented, “Definitely NOT True!!! I love you! Thank you for the nice wishes but I am not seeing a soul. I am happy focusing on my daughter and myself for a while.”
In December, Thompson was sued for child support by personal trainer Maralee Nichols as she claimed that their months-long sexual relationship had resulted in the conception of a baby boy named Theo, who was born earlier that month. The basketball player’s infidelity and paternity drama was also featured on the season finale of The Kardashians on Hulu. After watching those events play out on screen, Khloé Kardashian said during a Disney FYC screening and Q&A event last week, “It’s not easy, but it’s also, I think, a form of therapy for me at the same time. And I like to see how the rest of my family responds to things. Those little things mean a lot to me, and I like to see that stuff, just how the whole family—not about this situation, but any situation—how we all rally around one another in times that are hard for us.”
