Kardashian, who recently divorced NBA Champion, Lamar Odom, and is reportedly dating Cleveland Cavalier, Tristan Thompson, carried on a highly publicized but short lived relationship with a third left-handed hooper in Harden. According to Harden, he did not appreciate the attention he received while dating the reality star.
"I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn't getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don't need that. It wasn't uncomfortable, but it wasn't me. I don't need pictures of myself when I'm driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that," said Harden in an interview withSports Illustrated. "I'm not worried about anything but hooping. And that may be why I'm having this kind of success."
For her part, Kardashian said that the relationship ended because of infidelity on the part of Harden.
"I just don't want to put up with people that, you want to be monogamous, but then you're not monogamous," said Kardashian on her now canceled talk show. "I've always said, 'We don't need to be monogamous. There's a lot of s--t going on in both of our lives. You live in Houston, I live in L.A. Let's just see each other when we see each other.' Why wouldn't you say, 'OK, that's great'? He sought me out, wanted to be committed, then wasn't committed."
