Khloe Kardashian has fallen hard for notorious NBA playboy James Harden, which concerned sister Kim so much that Dish Nation has exclusively learned she made hubby Kanye West have a man-to-man talk with him.
“It’s well-known within the basketball community that James is quite the womanizer,” a source close to the family dished.
“Kim watched Khloe go through hell with Lamar [Odom], who broke her heart by cheating with multiple women. When she heard that Khloe was dating James, she freaked out and begged her to think twice. But Khloe is so into him that she has blinders on.”
According to the insider, Kim, 34, decided to take matters into her own hands by urging Kanye to have a conversation with James.
“Kim is so concerned about James’ intentions that she told Kanye to have a man-to-man chat with him,” the source said. “Kanye is extremely protective of Kim and her family, so he was more than happy to pull James aside and speak with him about Khloe.”
Khloe, 31 — whose divorce from Lamar was finalized in July — was first linked with the Houston Rockets guard, 26, in early June, when the couple hooked up in Hawaii.
The source tells Dish that Kanye, 38, confronted James during Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party at The Nice Guy in Los Angeles on August 9.
“Kanye pulled James aside and straight up said that he better not be messing with Khloe. Everyone knows that Kanye speaks his mind and he made it really clear that Khloe has been treated like crap in past relationships, and she deserves a guy who won’t hurt her,” the insider revealed.
“He told James to break it off ASAP if he had other intentions, but James reassured him he really cares for Khloe.”
Kim allegedly feels a small sense of relief now that James has been warned, and she can only hope the best for her sister.
“Kim’s hoping that the talk works and James treats her good, but considering his history with women, she isn’t holding her breath!”
