NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. has set the record straight on a recent rumor about dating reality TV hottie Khloé Kardashian.

According to Beckham, steamy pics alongside KK nearly cost him a relationship.

Beckham was not, is not, dating Khloé Kardashian—but the rumors did f*ck him up with a girl he was seeing. “Things go like that,” he says ruefully, “and then some other girl that I may have been talking to hears about it, and now it’s more drama, more commotion in my life. And I’m sitting here trying to explain my situation to somebody, and it’s really not even a situation.” (GQ)

A few months ago, KK appeared to simmer down the steamy hookup gossip.

In late May, dating evidence surfaced on social media and showed them looking coupled up at rap star Drake’s California home.

TMZ Sports obtained pics of the two getting super close at Drake’s pool party in Hidden Hills on Memorial Day … with Khloe droppin’ her big ol’ butt right on top of the NY Giants superstar. The pics were taken around midnight — and our sources inside the party tell us KK and OBJ were “definitely into each other” and “looked like a couple.” (TMZ)

In late April, OBJ talked about his close-knit bond to Drake.

“We took a trip to London. Before I took the trip, I was already like, ‘I want to get away from the world. I just want to go somewhere.’ And next thing you know, it was maybe the next day, he called me like, ‘Yo, man, I’m going to London. Come with me.’ I was like, ‘Bet. Where you need me to be?’ I went out to London.” (Draft Kings)
