Watch: The Truth About Kim Kardashian & Odell Beckham Jr.’s Relationship Status

Is Kim Kardashian keeping up with Odell Beckham Jr.?

Following reports that the Kardashians star and the Baltimore Ravens wide receiver have been hanging out together, E! News has learned where they really stand.

"Kim and Odell are friends and have a lot of mutual friends in common," sources tell E! News. "She's not seriously dating anyone at the moment but open to finding love again if she meets the right person. Right now her main focus is on her kids and her businesses."

Speculation about the duo comes after his breakup with model Lauren Wood, with whom he shares 19-month-old son Zydn.

And while neither Kim nor Odell have publicly commented on the status of their relationship, the 30-year-old does have a history with Kim's family.

Back in 2016, he was photographed chatting with Khloe Kardashian at Drake's private Memorial Day party—an encounter that led to the Good American co-founder debunking romance rumors. "TWIMC: Sorry to burst your bubble. When a couple drinks, a little flirting and an invasion of privacy collide things may look crazy," Khloe wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, at the time. "However...this ain't that and that ain't this."

The NFL star later called out the partygoer who leaked the photo. "Whoever was there taking the pictures inside of a private party, inside of a private-er, private-er area of the house—we were in the kitchen of the house, where there was only like 15 people. It's just kind of like...'dating'?" he shared in GQ August 2016 issue. "I just met this person. This is maybe the second conversation we've had."

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson: Romance Rewind

Five years later, OBJ teamed up with Kendall Jenner and starred in a campaign for her oral beauty brand Moon. 

For her part, Kim—who is mom to kids North, 10, Saint, 7, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4, with ex-husband Kanye West—has been vocal about waiting to jump back into the dating pool since breaking up with Pete Davidson last year. "I'm not looking for anything," she shared during a September 2022 appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan. "I think I just really need to be by myself and focus on finishing law school and my kids."

During the season three premiere of The Kardashians in June, Kim confirmed that she's single but "not ready to mingle."

"And that's OK," the SKIMS mogul noted, adding, "I'm just waiting for that person."

"I go back and forth in my feelings sometimes like, 'Uh, who's ever gonna wanna date me? I have four kids, I'm in my 40s, you know? Like, oh my god, who's gonna wanna deal with the drams?'" Kim said. "But my person will be like, 'F--k all of that, it's gonna be hard but we're together and we're gonna do this.'"

Reps for Kim and Odell have not publicly commented on the relationship speculation.

Keep up with the love lives of all the Kardashian-Jenners below...

Kris Jenner

Why, yes, Kris Jenner and longtime love Corey Gamble are still doing amazing, sweetie. In 2014, the music industry insider approached the world's most famous momager at fashion designer Riccardo Tisci's 40th birthday bash in Ibiza and "I just tried saying, 'You're beautiful. I'd love to get to know you,'" he shared on the family's OG series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, "and it went from there."

Kourtney Kardashian

With all due respect for all the small things, Kourtney Kardashian's husband has made some pretty grand gestures throughout their yearlong marriage. Take her 44th birthday that saw her and Travis Barker take a trip up the California coast to Santa Barbara. The Blink-182 drummer, 47, marked the occasion by filling their room at the famed Kennedy Cottage with rose petals and gifting her with a $161,819 piece by artist Yoshitomo Nara

The Poosh founder has fully embraced her new life as the girl at the rock show. And in November 2023, she and Travis welcomed their first child together, son Rocky Thirteen Barker.

Kim Kardashian

As Kim Kardashian put it in a trailer of The Kardashians, "Things change really quickly." When season two wrapped, the SKIMS founder was still living it up with then-Saturday Night Live standout Pete Davidson.

She later got fans hoping she was getting back in the dating game with retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady

Alas, the mom to North West, Saint West, Chicago West and Psalm West—with ex-husband Kanye West—wasn't on the hunt for a new teammate. "They have friends and business partners in common, but [are] not dating," a source told E! News in May 2023. "Kim is very focused on her kids, her businesses, law school and preparing for American Horror Story."

She briefly dated Odell Beckham Jr. until news broke of their split in April 2024.

As a source told E!, Kim is "open to finding love again if she meets the right person." 

Khloe Kardashian

In a 2023 episode, Kris shoots her shot while chatting with Khloe Kardashian about Tristan Thompson, asking, "How's everything going with Tristan?" Safe to say the Good American founder has the L.A. Lakers power forward benched for now. Though the exes have worked out a game plan for raising daughter True and son Tatum, Khloe shot down the idea that they're back together in May 2023, calling the narrative "tiring."

She's more interested in starting a fresh story. After meeting Love Is Blind star Alexa Lemieux the following April, Khloe pitched a winning idea to Netflix, writing on Instagram, "I think some of us single K sisters should go on LIB. What do you think?"

Kendall Jenner

Months after Kendall Jenner's split with NBA guard Devin Booker in fall 2022 , the model's love life got an assist from friends Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber. The married duo were spotted enjoying a double date with the reality star, 27, and musician Bad Bunny, 29, in February 2023. The following December, it was reported that the two had called it quits.

Kylie Jenner

Seems Kylie Jenner has found herself a new beautiful boy. Last seen publicly with rapper Travis Scott—dad to her daughter Stormi, 5, and son Aire, 15 months—at an Art Basel party in December, the beauty mogul, 25, has been linked to Oscar-nominated actor Timothée Chalamet, 27, since April 2023. Now, rise and shine because you don't want to miss the glimpses they've given us of their romance at New York Fashion Week and the US Open, as well as live on TV, when they showed PDA while seated together at the 2024 Golden Globes.
