Khloe and the gang had attended True, Dream and Chicago’s dance recital earlier in the day – which Khloe proudly shared snap of with her Instagram following.

Before stepping out with her family, Khloe moved to swiftly shut down a rumor about her current love life on social media.

She took to the comments of a Instagram account that follows Kardashian–Jenner drama to set the record straight.

She denied that she was dating anyone at the moment after an anonymous tipster claimed to the gossip account Deuxmoi that she was dating another NBA player after her ex Tristan Thompson fathered a child with another woman while they were dating.

Khloé’s rumored hookup was first mentioned after Deuxmoi posted a message wondering when she would move on with a new man.

In an update, an anonymous person claimed that Khloé was ‘seeing another nba player…’

Asked who it was, they replied, ‘No my boss couldn’t remember his name, sorry!’

The Instagram Stories post was shared later on Saturday by the account Kardashian Social, which admitted that the rumor might not have been true, but gushed, ‘I know she doesn’t need anyone but I CANNOT WAIT for her to have someone like Kravis and Kete one day because I know she will!’

Then Khloé jumped into the comments to deny that she was seeing anyone new.

Khloé’s statement that she’s staying single for the time being comes after she admitted that watching the scandal replayed on The Kardashians is a ‘form of therapy’ for her.

She made the admission while joined by her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kendall Jenner at a For Your Emmy Consideration event for her family’s new Hulu reality series on Wednesday.

‘It’s not easy, but it’s also, I think, a form of therapy for me at the same time, and I like to see how the rest of my family responds to things,’ she said, according to Just Jared.

‘Those little things mean a lot to me, and I like to see that stuff, just how the whole family — not about this situation, but any situation — how we all rally around one another in times that are hard for us.’

Khloé’s fury over the revelation that Tristan had fathered a child was recently featured on The Kardashians, and she was seen getting a tense early morning phone call about the news from her sister Kim.

She credited the crew and The Kardashians’ showrunner for helping to make her comfortable enough to share such intimate moments with the world. 

‘We’re so lucky and honored through that, and [showrunner] Danielle [King] is with us in the field every day,’ she said. ‘If we didn’t feel safe or comfortable to tell our stories, or to feel that we can be vulnerable… Yes, we know it’s going to go on the big screen one day, but you can be your raw, open self when you have a great team around you.’

She also noted that the family members all have boundaries as to what they won’t allow to be filmed or aired, but some are more private than others.
