The 31-year-old star and her basketball star boyfriend James Harden have broken up, the long distance ultimately getting to them the way it has gotten to so many couples—famous and otherwise—before.
Over the course of their approximately eight-month relationship, they had some loftily romantic times together, including the yacht party Kardashian threw for Harden's 26th birthday last summer and their VIP trips to Las Vegas.
Kardashian pal La La Anthony and hubby Carmelo Anthony have had to duck rumors of major marital discord, and Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett went through, er, some stuff when he retired from the NFL.
Even sports golden couple, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, have acknowledged that they hit a major rough patch during the Deflategate portion of Brady's illustrious career—and Gisele recently revealed that she had just started dating Brady when she found out his ex Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with his child, and the supermodel had to decide yea or nay on the whole thing. It would almost be weird if someone found it to be with an athlete.
But they also only spent a small fraction of that time in the same state, let alone the same city. She gave it a go, but it is just damn to date a professional athlete.
