James Harden has finally opened up on why he broke up with Khloe Kardashian, and according to him, he wasn’t getting anything out of it. I understand Harden perfectly. Once you realize you aren’t getting anything out of a relationship, the best decision is to walk out gently, and that was what Harden did.
The relationship was born out of Kanye West’s basketball-themed birthday celebration at the Staples Center in June when they first met.
While Harden and Khloe’s romance ended after eight months, Harden has been very vocal about the break-up and has stated why it was the worst year of his life. Furthermore, he also mentioned the amount of attention and publicity that was taking place, which was the primary cause of the relationship ending.
“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”.
Khloe Kardashian also expressed regret about their relationship, as she commented about the statement from her perspective.
“It’s almost like you have to go through it twice: privately and publicly. I’ve been there, for sure, and it’s hard,” she said. “It’s humiliating … It’s like pouring salt into an open wound. It definitely makes it hard to close that chapter of your life.”
According to Harden in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, he faced challenges while dating Khloe Kardashian.
While he was going through this phase, he mentioned that he wasn’t fond of the attention he was getting and that it was unnecessary to tell the world everything about him. It wasn’t who he was.
The final straw in their relationship was when Khloe wasn’t sure if she wanted to get back with Lamar Odom after he overdosed at a brothel. Fun fact, at least publicly, there is no evidence that Harden ever cheated on Khloe, making him the only man she has ever been with that never cheated on her.
