Has Khloe Kardashian found new love with Matt Kemp, or is he just a sympathetic ear during her time of need?

While Matt and newly-single Khloe were rumored to have struck up a romance as her relationship with soon-to-be ex-husband Lamar Odom was on its last legs, the Dodgers outfielder is now claiming that the pair are keeping things strictly platonic.

Matt explained to TMZ that, despite how much fans might want to see them together, the two are “just friends.”

When confronted with questions regarding the rumors he’ll be spending the holiday with Khloe and her family, Matt gave a knowing smile and replied, “The Kardashians are good people.”

While the pair may seem like a cute couple, it looks as though it may take some time for Khloe to get over her relationship with her troubled ex.

“Khloe is absolutely heartbroken right now [over Lamar] and dating someone is the last thing she’s thinking about,” an insider revealed.

Khloe intimated as much following the announcement that she had filed for divorce, when she begged fans to keep the whispers about her and Matt to a minimum.

This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul. Please, I don't need the extra rumors and BS right now,” she tweeted.
