Rapper The Game has denied recent reports of a romance with married reality star Khloe Kardashian.
Life & Style magazine shows a picture of Khloe Kardashian jumping into The Game’s arms in LA’s Runyon Canyon Park last month.
The Game, real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, told TMZ that Khloe Kardashian and her brother Rob were at the famous hiking spot to take part in his 60 Days of Fitness programme.
“The pictures that they see of us out together are because she is a part of my 60DaysofFitness team,” the 33 year-old rapper told TMZ.
“Khloe is my friend,” The Game added.
“She is like a sister. We have never and will never be sleeping together. Lamar [Odom] is my homie and her husband and I wish people wouldn’t spread such false rumors.”
Khloe Kardashian has been dogged by recent reports that her three year marriage to Lamar Odom is failing.
On Wednesday, the reality star took to her Twitter page seemingly to address the gossip.
“Wow! How disgusting are some people,” Khloe Kardashian wrote.
“Leave my family alone! Stop spreading such trash!!!”
Life & Style magazine claimed Khloe Kardashian was “flirting up a storm” with The Game during the hike.
“Her jumping on The Game seemed like it was natural,” a fellow hiker told the publication.
“She was really happy and they seemed to be really friendly.”
The insider added that Khloe Kardashian is so fed up with her marriage, she has been exerting a new independent streak.
“Everybody thinks Khloe is a victim in her marriage, but she isn’t anymore,” the source said.
“She’s finally ready to not let Lamar have all the power.”
The Game is reported to be dating long term girlfriend Tiffney Cambridge despite the pair calling off their wedding last year.
According to Life & Style magazine, Lamar Odom “freaked” when he saw Khloe Kardashian was “hanging out with The Game”.
An insider told the publication: “Lamar stepped up to the plate and is finally working on their marriage and rekindling the flame.”
Lamar Odom has recently been showering Khloe Kardashian with gifts and taking her out to restaurants for romantic dinners, reports the magazine.
“Lamar has always loved a woman who is independent and speaks her mind, so when Khloe became so insecure and dependent on him, it was a huge turn off,” the insider added.
“Now she’s hotter than ever and really making Lamar work for it, so he’s turned up his game. Things are looking up for the two of them again.”
