Matt Kemp & Khloe K.

Tight Lipped and

'Taking it Slow'

12/17/2013 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp is trying to keep silent about the rumors he's hooking up with Khloe Kardashian -- but TMZ Sports has learned there's definitely something cooking between them.

Our Kardashian sources tell us Khloe and Matt are in the early, early stages of a relationship and they're "taking it really slow." Makes sense -- Khloe just filed to divorce Lamar Odom last week.

Monday in L.A., Matt was asked about his "love life" ... and said he was only focusing on baseball -- and when asked specifically about Khloe he said even less. However, Kemp also pumped up the buzz yesterday by posting what many people believed to be the giant Christmas tree at Kardashian HQ ... aka Kris Jenner's house.

We're told the tree in the Instagram is NOT KJ's ... and it's actually Matt's. He lives in the same 'hood as the Kardashians -- and we're told the foyer at his pad is almost identical to theirs.

One source tells us Matt and Khloe have a ton in common -- "same neighborhood, same friends, and same love of family."

Could be a very interesting guest list at the Kardashian Christmas dinner.

I highly doubt Matt Kemp is dating her. Have you seen the women he dates? They look ten times better than her. Having sex yes, dating no.

Matt just loves publicity. He'll drop her just like a bag once all the publicity is over. Watch!! From Rihanna to Khloe? That's major downgrade.

Typical hoeish behavior from a kardashian. She's banging an athlete.. No surprise. I wonder if his parents are dead cause those are the men those woman go for.i do believe it's his tree though because doesn't the wicked witch of the west have checkered floors?

Well he doesn't deny or admit yes dating her so basically he's saying yes he's banging her. He doesn't look happy that it's out there tho.. Major downgrade for him.. But on the bright side.. Christmas is all about charity work.. That's nice that he's helping a Sasquatch out

NO!! Is this guy really that dumb? Please don't ruin your life Matt. Take a look at what this family does to men. They turned Bruce and KAnye gay! Well maybe KAnye already was. But dude, you can do so much better!!!

If she wants to get serious with this guy, keep her family out of it. Especially Kris. But I give it a month. She's going to come on too strong and try to repeat a Lamar moment.
