“Khloe likes James and wants to get to know him without having sex,” a pal close to Khloe revealed.
“It may come as a surprise, but it’s a new path she’s taking when it comes to men. She feels like all French [Montana] cared about was having sex with her. It really got in her head.”
The reality TV star, 31 — whose divorce from Lamar Odom, 35, is set to be finalized by a judge within days how that both have finally signed the papers — has been dating the Houston Rockets shooting guard for nearly two months.
According to the source, Khloe was even more happy with her decision to stay celibate with James after a 23-year-old Australian woman, Rochelle Relf, came forward to claim she’d had sex with him in June, just days after his Hawaiian getaway with Khloe.
“Khloe was with James in Hawaii, then he flew to Australia and spent the night with me,” Rochelle told New Idea.
“He was charming, affectionate – he asked me to visit him in America and told me he was a single guy. He is Mr. Romantic and says what you want to hear.”
The source says that Khloe was bummed to hear about James’ hookup, “but in a way it was a test to see how interested he was in getting to know her.
“They aren’t officially together and she’s not going to stop seeing him because he slept with someone else, but it was eye-opening and made her even more content with her decision,” the source dished.
“We’ll see how long she sticks to her no-sex policy, but for now it’s helped her to keep a clearer conscience and not get so attached to these men.”
Finally the source added, “The truth is that she wants to settle down and have kids sooner than later — she just wants to be sure she has a guy that really cares about her for the right reasons, not just sex.”
