By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/30/2015
Khloe Kardashian hasn't completely put her social life on hold for Lamar Odom, as she made that clear when attending boyfriend James Harden's NBA opener this week.
Although the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been at Odom's beside for weeks since he suffered a drug overdose October 13, she managed to sneak away unnoticed and watch Harden's basketball game in Houston Wednesday when his team played the Denver Nuggets at the Toyota Center, E! News reported.
Several witnesses at the NBA game, including an Associated Press sports writer, spotted Kardashian, 31, cheering Harden on from a suite.
Despite withdrawing her divorce paperwork in court, Kardashian admitted this week she is not getting back together with Odom romantically. However, she's still dedicated to helping Odom through his long road to recovery since being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.
Kardashian showing up at Harden's basketball game would seem to be a gesture that proves she has not broken up with him, and on the contrary, is making him a priority throughout all of the chaos surrounding her estranged husband.
In fact, a source told E! News that Kardashian and Harden are absolutely an item and going strong.
"Khloe and James never broke up. He's been so understanding and he knows that Khloe's love for Lamar is deeper than what most people can understand," the source explained. "He's been very understanding and supportive. Lamar has a long road ahead of him and Khloe will always have the love she has for Lamar."
Kardashian's complicated relationship with Odom can naturally only complicate her dynamic with Harden, but the reality TV star told People she hopes everything will work out as it should and she's just grateful for Harden's support right now.
"[James] has been great with me, and I'm just allowing everything to unfold," Kardashian said. "If it's ever too overwhelming [for him], then I understand that as well."
Kardashian and Odom wed in 2009 after a very brief courtship and filed for divorce four years later. Kardashian has been dating Harden for a few months.
