Khloe Kardashian‘s love life hasn’t EXACTLY been the smoothest of rides, so when rumours started floating around that she was now dating basketball star Robin Lopez, we were skeptical.
Particularly since her last relationship with a basketball player didn’t end so nicely. Yes, we’re looking at you, Lamar Odom.
Speculation about Khloe’s supposed new lover started circulating around last week, as the wonderous thing called the internet hinted that the 30-year-old Kardashian had moved on from rapper beau French Montana.
Obviously this was all just a load of hear-say, but everyone lapped it up all the same. Us included.
Sadly though, Robin, 26, has now come forward to deny any romance between him and Khloe in one of the best responses we’ve seen to dating rumours.
He replied: “You know, I’m not exactly certain of the veracity of those rumors.
“But what I can comment on, I suppose, is the fabrication of that power couple by the press.
“Obviously they were looking for two people with a lot of influence on popular culture, on the youth, and they were looking for two movers and shakers. Frankly, I’m not surprised they came up with my name.”
Since Robin is apparently out of playing basketball for six weeks after breaking his hand, he also said that he’d quite like to use that time to have a go at living the glamourous and hectic Kardashian lifestyle. NOTE THE SUBTLE SARCASM.
He added: “I’ve got a lot more free time for magazine shoots, guest hosting duties on TV shows and stuff.
“They can contact my agent if they want to. I’m also the associate video guy. That’s one of my new duties. Got a wealth of opportunities even though I’ve only got one hand right now.”
We like this man. It’s a shame these rumours are false really.
Khloe is said to have broken up with French for the second time only a few weeks ago.
She alluded to her split with the rapper when she posted an emotional note on Intagram that hinted that their relationship “almost” worked out…but not quite.
In fact KoKo seems to have completely blanked French, as she’s made no mention of the rapper for a long time.
Boyfriend or not, we hope Khloe has a lovely Christmas and maybe, just maybe, she’ll find the man of her dreams in 2015!
