From Lamar Odom to Tristan Thompson — List of Khloe Kardashian’s Ex-Boyfriends
Her relationship with these men has often played out in public thanks to her family’s reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Fans have seen her talk about the type of men she likes. The reality star revealed she likes good-looking men with nice personalities and a sense of humor.
Here is a look at all her whirlwind romances with her ex-boyfriends and former husband over the years.
1. Rashad McCants
Retired NBA player Rashad McCants and Kardashian dated at the end of 2008 and split in January 2009.
In Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami, the reality star made it seem like the basketball player had cheated on her.
But McCants later revealed they had broken up weeks before and that Kardashian made the whole thing up for a storyline on the show. He also accused her of derailing his career, which barred him from earning $60-$70million.
2. Derrick Ward
After McCants, Kardashian moved on with Derrick Ward, a running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The pair cozied up in Mexico while celebrating sister Kourtney Kardashian’s 30th birthday.
They went on a few dates, but their romance was clearly not meant to last.
3. Lamar Odom
Kardashian then dated Lamar Odom, and after a whirlwind affair, they married in September 2009, just one month after they met.
But Odom’s struggle with substance abuse and multiple affairs ultimately led to their relationship's demise in 2013.
The Good American co-founder initially filed for divorce in 2013, but she put it on hold to take care of Odom following his overdose in a Nevada brothel. Their divorce was finalized in December 2016.
4. French Montana
After splitting from Odom, Kardashian was in an on-and-off relationship with rapper French Montana.
After calling it quits for good in December 2014, the reality star revealed she was not ready for a relationship after her failed marriage.
“I jumped into something because I was just, like, lonely and destructive. But now I’m like, I just want to be alone,” she said during an episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons.
5. James Harden
The next man that entered Kardashian’s life was NBA player James Harden.
Harden and Kardashian met at Kanye West’s birthday party in June 2015 and dated until February 2016.
Many thought the split had something to do with Odom’s overdose, but the reality star revealed on an episode of her now-defunct talk show that the athlete had cheated on her.
After the breakup, Harden revealed he hated all the attention surrounding his relationship with Kardashian.
“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,” he said.
6. Tristan Thompson
Kardashian was then set up on a blind date with Thompson by her friend, Brandon Jennings.
The duo was besotted with each other, and in September 2017, news broke that the couple was expecting their first child together.
Unfortunately, days before the reality star welcomed their daughter True Thompson in April 2018, Thompson had spent the night with model Lani Blair in NYC.
The Good American co-founder broke up with the athlete following the news. She rekindled their romance in June 2020, only to break up again in June 2021 after model Sydney Chase alleged she hooked up with Thompson in the fall of 2020.
Kardashian forgave him yet again, but in December 2021, Maralee Nichols filed a paternity suit against Thompson, who claimed she had slept with Thompson in March 2021 while still dating Kardashian.
A month later, Thompson admitted to fathering Nichols’ son Theo and publicly apologized to Kardashian. But it seems like the affair was the final blow to their relationship.
"Right now, Tristan and I are just friends. I love the relationship that he and I have but my biggest focus is being a mom to my beautiful angel True," Khloe said regarding her relationship with Thompson in the debut episode of The Kardashians.
