They’ve only been dating a few months, but Khloé Kardashian says James Harden has been understanding while she has remained a constant presence at Lamar Odom ‘s hospital bedside since his Oct. 13 hospitalization.
“James has been very supportive and awesome,” Kardashian, 31, says exclusively in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “He’s been great with me.”
Despite calling off her divorce from Odom, 35, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star says she is not getting back together with the former athlete, though the future of her relationship with Harden, 26, is unclear as well.
“His season is starting,” says Kardashian of the Houston Rockets player. “And I’m just allowing everything to unfold. If it’s ever too overwhelming [for him], then I understand that as well.”
