Looks like Houston Rockets guard James Harden isn’t worried about his apparent breakup with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Khloé Kardashian. The NBA star took to Instagram after news broke that Kardashian and her ailing husband, former Los Angeles player Lamar Odom, called off their divorce.
Harden, 26, made it clear that he is focused on his career and not any potential drama with Kardashian, 31. He posted a picture of himself on the basketball court Wednesday and wrote, “Seven days until the cook is back to work!” Then he added: “Htown.” The post was liked more than 51,000 times by his 2 million followers.
He followed up the photo with a video of himself lip-syncing to Drake and Future’s song “Jersey.” He mouthed the words, “Caught the wave, I ain’t surfin’/ You do what you want when you poppin’, yeah/ /You do what you want once you cop it/You do what you want when you got it.”
Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, confirmed in an interview with "Access Hollywood" Wednesday that her daughter and son-in-law called off their divorce. When Jenner, 59, was asked about her reaction she said, “Nothing but love.”
E! reality star Kardashian issued her first statement about Odom’s hospitalization Tuesday. "You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure," she said. "Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!
Odom, 35, was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel Oct. 13 after reportedly overdosing on drugs. Even though they were estranged, Kardashian dropped everything to be with Odom at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. He woke up from his coma Friday and was transferred to Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles Monday. He has reportedly taken a few steps after he arrived in California, his aunt JaNean Mercer said in a statement. It could be months before he makes a full recovery.
