Khloe Kardashian & Baron Davis NOT Dating, Despite Speculation

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes



“With Lamar Odom out of the picture, Khloe Kardashian turned to ANOTHER basketball star for some company during a shopping outing in Bev Hills … ex-NBA stud Baron Davis,” begins a piece from the usually reliable TMZ. The site says it shot footage of Kardashian and Baron “leaving Barneys New York on Thursday … laughing and smiling together … and even sharing a hug.”

The webloid, which is quite fond of ellipses, then speculates whether the two are “just shopping pals … or something more.” Adds the outlet, there are also “rumors Khloe is secretly dating Dodgers star Matt Kemp.” TMZ, however, is 0 for 2.

Despite Kardashian and Davis being pictured together hugging, and noted by TMZ and seen in the photo above, she and the basketball player are not dating or “something more,” as insinuated by the website. The coziness depicted in the TMZ image is nothing more than two friends being cordial.

A source close to Kardashian tells Gossip Cop exclusively that it’s “not true” that the reality star is dating Davis. And as we recently reported, Kardashian is also not hooking up with Kemp, though she seemingly has a fondness for professional athletes. Gossip Cop’s insider calls the new spate of dating rumors, perpetuated by TMZ and others, completely “insane.”
