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 seriously doubt it is the Kardashian's home. They have black and white checkered floor. The one in this picture is all white. It is however very similar to theirs. But even if that is the case, let Khloe move on. She has been through hell with Lamar and it is time for her to move on.

He seems like a good guy just for the fact that he doesn't have any baby mommas. They would both start out fresh and not have crack babies like she would have with Lamar!

I do believe its matts tree at his house but that just means kris jenner was at his house for some reason. Perhaps going over the contractual legalities of how much she's gonna pay him for dating khloe and how much more he will get for marrying her.

Matt, you are an idiot if you go anywhere near the K /Jenner family.
Khloe is an even bigger idiot if she goes near a pro-athlete - that worked out so well for her in the past.

The majority of you commenting sound like a bunch of bullies. Stop the madness. How would you feel if these comments were directed towards your very own children. Sasquatch? Goon? Bigfoot? You must not have a life to be affected by hers. Look at where you are at and then where she is. She is a successful and BEAUTIFUL woman.....and you????With comments like these it just goes to show that people like you will never succeed. You may think you have but you never will. Karma people.
