Khloe Kardashian was NOT “dumped” by James Harden on Christmas, despite a report. Gossip Cop can correct the inaccurate story. The low-key couple is actually very much still together.

According to this week’s OK!, Harden “broke up with her on Christmas day.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “It was too much for him. The media scrutiny, her family’s meddling and her mood swings drove him over the edge.” Of course, that’s the exact opposite of what Kardashian herself has revealed about Harden.

On multiple occasions she’s spoken about Harden’s support and understanding. In one interview, she even shared an anecdote about warning him about the attention that will come from being associated with her family. As Gossip Cop reported just last month, Kardashian said, “I’ll even say, ‘I’m gonna do Ryan Seacrest, I’m sure they’re gonna ask about us. Like, does that bother you?’ He’s like, ‘No.’”

So even though the OK! breakup explanation makes no sense, the story presses on, alleging that Kardashian’s “family is concerned.” The supposed source claims, “They liked James but worried she was too invested in him at a fragile time.” The alleged tipster further says “another heartbreak is the last thing she needs,” and adds that “Khloe is hoping they’ll get back together.”

In actuality, the last thing Kardashian needs is another tabloid making up yet another story about her. And including the quote about “hoping they’ll get back together” is the magazine’s way of giving itself an out for when Kardashian and Harden are seen together again. In fact, she reportedly headed to Houston on Tuesday, the same day this story hit newsstands, to spend time with him.

Kardashian is expected to be with Harden in Houston for a few days. That hardly sounds like a situation in which one just “dumped” the other. It’s hardly surprising, though, that OK! screwed up. After all, this is the same outlet that ran a false cover story in July alleging Kardashian was pregnant, but wasn’t sure if Harden or Lamar Odom was the father. Yikes.
