Though Khloé Kardashian has been seen with baseball player Matt Kemp over the past three weeks, the two are not dating, according to a report Monday.

People magazine said the reality-TV star, 29, was spotted with Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Kemp at a Beverly Hills gym Friday morning, just hours before filing for divorce from former NBA player Lamar Odom.

Helping spur rumors was a photo Kemp, also 29, posted on Instagram the same day showing what People said was the Kardashian family's Christmas tree. "Best time of the year!!" he wrote. "It's gonna b a Cali Christmas this year."

Kemp and Kardashian, whom People said are longtime friends, attended a Drake concert together at Los Angles' Staples Center on Nov. 25, saw John Legend perform at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre on Dec. 1, and attended Jay Z's show at the Staples Center on Dec. 9.

A representative for Kardashian had no comment.

Kemp dated pop singer Rihanna for almost a year before breaking up in December 2010.

Odom and Kardashian have been estranged for months amid speculation that Odom has been struggling with substance abuse.

The former L.A. Clippers forward was sentenced to 36 months probation on Dec. 9 after pleading no contest to an August DUI charge.

E! News said the two mostly have lived apart since the summer while attending couples counseling, and did not spend their fourth anniversary together in September.
