Reality star Khloé Kardashian’s dating history has been under the limelight for a long time now, but with Tristan Thompson’s new paternity scandal, even her ex-husband is chiming in on his thoughts. Since her rise to fame in 2007, Kardashian has been linked to many familiar faces like Thompson, Lamar Odom, French Montana, and many more. Here’s a breakdown of all of Kardashian’s exes throughout the years, as well as the biggest scandals that came out of her relationships with them.
Rashad McCants’ feature in KUWTK marked Kardashian’s first public relationship that began in 2008. The “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” episode with the Kardashians hacking into his voicemail and listening to messages from a woman caused quite the stir when the episode was aired. McCants later clarified that they didn’t have his phone number at the time with the pair already calling it quits prior.
Lamar Odom and Kardashian met each other in 2009 and got married just a month after. She filed for divorce in 2013 after allegations that Odom was cheating on her. Kardashian then chose to put her divorce on hold after he slipped into a coma. A source said to CNN, “This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloe, and the most sensible thing to do at such a time is to not make any big moves and put everything on hold. So that’s what she is doing.” They eventually got divorced in December 2016.
The pair had been on-off for the most part in 2014 and broke up in December of that year. A source told E! News that Kardashian wanted to step away from Montana’s “needy, obsessive” behaviour.
Kardashian and American basketball player James Harden met at Kanye West’s birthday party in 2015 but were together just shy of a year. “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 reportedly said about the high-profile relationship. “It’s humiliating … It’s like pouring salt into an open wound. It definitely makes it hard to close that chapter of your life.”
The pair began dating in September 2016 while Thompson’s ex Jordan Craig was pregnant with his first child. Kardashian later announced her pregnancy and gave birth to their daughter, True Thompson, in April 2018. During this, the relationship fell apart after the revelation of Thompson’s infidelity to the KUWTK star, and they subsequently split up in early 2019 with more rumours circulating regarding an affair between Thompson and Kylie Jenner’s best friend at the time, Jordyn Woods.
In August 2020, the couple reconciled while isolating together during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pair split up again in June 2021, with Maralee Nichols filing a paternity lawsuit against Thompson in late 2021. The Canadian basketball player recently confirmed that he’s the father of the child in 2022 and issued a public apology to Kardashian for this past actions.
“Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years,” read the statement. “My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
It’s fair to say that Khloe Kardashian has had her fair share of heartbreak and scandals, and we hope she finally finds the man of her dreams this year.
