Nervous about how involved the public got in her relationship with ex-husband Lamar Odom, insiders claim Khloe Kardashian is opting to play it safe this season by insisting that James get far less camera time than Lamar ever did — learning from her past mistakes.
“Khloe is adamant that what happened in the past with Lamar never be repeated. She went through hell when they broke up on camera so publicly,” a source close to the 31-year-old Kardashian.
“While she has made a career out of sharing her relationship woes with her fans, this time her blossoming relationship with James is different.”
According to the insider, Khloe thinks that less camera time and more personal time alone to build her relationship with James is essential to its success.
Not to mention, Khloe is still emotional after the heartbreak of having her life fall apart with Lamar, and the public scrutiny because it was played out so openly on TV.
“She wants to build the relationship with James in private rather than having each night out followed by cameras. Her time with Lamar ended badly and to some extent her split with French Montana also was very messy — with many fans accusing French of being more interested in fame than her,” the source added.
“So now for the upcoming episodes this season James won’t be that heavily involved. Khloe is taking things slow on that front.”
