James Harden’s girlfriend history is incredible. Hell, James Harden is incredible. On the court, off the court. It doesn’t matter. The dude is just a success in everything he does. When you carry his level of notoriety, inquiring minds want to know about your dating life. And given some of the names in James Harden’s girlfriend resume, even more minds than normal want to know.
Now The Beard has a tremendous list of women attached to him. Hell, when we were consolidating our posts together into one, we’d even forgotten some of the posts on him. The list below is in no way a complete list of every rumored girl he’s ever been tied to. We’re also going out of our way to avoid the “rumored hookups,” or the even more salacious stories out there.
With those ground rules in mind, let’s get to it. Note these are loaded chronologically, and the most current rumor is way down, some 1,500 words from now.
James Harden’s girlfriend Ashanti
This is the most recent lady tied to Harden. R&B singer Ashanti is reportedly tied to Harden, and it may be more serious than one might expect. TerezOwens.com indicates that Harden put Ashanti up in a Houston hotel, and sat her with his family at a recent playoff game. For a man who’s dated famous women the majority of his playing career, settling down with Ashanti is a nice retirement from the game. WHo knows how long this one holds on for, but if Terez’s sources are spot on, we may be seeing Ashanti ‘Rock wit u’ for the foreseeable future.
James Harden’s girlfriend Khloe Kardashian
Long before she had Tristan Thompson’s baby, Khloe Kardashian dated James Harden in 2015-2016. The couple did a solid job keeping things under wraps for a while, but with both of their paparazzi followings, folks were bound to find out eventually. Khloe is one of a very small group of people in the world whose star may shine brighter than Harden’s. I mean, do I need to give you her resume. She’s crazy famous from the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s. From an outsiders perspective, she seems to have wound up the most normal one from the show. She’s certainly trying to branch out, appearing in various TV projects (plus a dope interview on The Howard Stern Show).
Things didn’t work out for her on this relationship, but she managed to make things work with Tristan. And, she took the dude back after a very public cheating controversy.
James Harden’s Girlfriend Jessyka Janshel
James Harden’s girlfrend Jessyka Janshel is a social media model. She currently boasts upwards of 325,000 followers and fans. In the world of social media modeling. MediaTakeOut first noted the couple together in January 2017. This came on the heels of his split from Khloe Kardashian. Jessyka regularly sponsors various makeup and hair salons. If she continues to gain followers she will continue to catch deals. Since she appears to know exactly what kind of photos her followers enjoy, she continues to post them. After a look over her social media photo feed, she doesn’t actually represent many brands yet since it’s difficult to gain sponsorships. The world of social media influencers is very competitive.
James Harden’s Girlfriend Amber Rose
Now, this one is a little weird. Amber Rose, of modeling, video vixen, and acting fame, was very public about their relationship. Except that she wouldn’t call it a relationship,… sorta? Prior to the 2015 All-Star weekend, Amber went on Power 105 and said they have a special friendship, but that she “hasn’t gotten the D yet.” Some could argue that no James Harden opponent on the floor has ever seen D from him either. Get it. Basketball puns!
Anyways, Rose made it clear that the door was open for physicality to enter the picture, saying “Valentine’s day is tomorrow … if he acts right”. Amber and James both clearly moved on from each other. But their special friendship sure sounded fun while it lasted.
James Harden’s girlfriend Tahiry Jose
Color us surprised. We’d never heard of this one till tonight. Apparently in 2014, Tahiry Jose took a picture with Harden at a club, and people put these two together. For those that don’t know, including us 12-15 minutes ago, Tahiry Jose is a reality star from Love & Hip Hop. And look, we’re clearly the outliers here. Tahiry has nearly 2,000,000 followers on Instagram. She has almost a dozen non-reality credits to her name, so clearly pays the bills working as an actress. Jose had a relationship with rapper Joe Budden immediately preceding this alleged relationship.
This one appears to have flamed out with the same minimal fanfare that it started. Whether or not it was anything more than an incidental encounter or two is beyond us.
James Harden’s girlfriend Sarah Bellew
From 2013-2015, James Harden’s girlfriend was Sarah Bellew. Before asking if you should know who Sarah Bellew is, we’ll let you know now. Yes. She’s no stranger to dating in a public setting, as she was engaged to Lil Wayne for 5 months after years of dating. She is the mother to Weezy’s son Dwayne Michael.
As for Harden and Bellew. There’s not a ton of information about their time together. It’s fairly consistently reported they were together from 13-15. But beyond that, not much else. Some sites refer to her as a radio personality, but there’s not much else out there to back that up.
James Harden’s girlfriend Kyra Chaos
Another short term relationship happening around 2013. But, we included this one out of the shear jaw dropper of this bullet.
James Harden’s girlfriend Kyra Choas was reportedly on the payroll for $50,000 a month. That’s right folks, $50k a month. It’s certainly worth qualifying that no one in Harden’s camp ever confirmed this number. Hell, Kyra herself never publicly confirmed it. But, a friend of Chaos made that number publicly consumable, and the web ran with it. Night clubs, VIP lifestyle, and a cool $600k a year? Yeah, that’s a good gig.
James Harden’s girlfriend Trina
Doesn’t Trina call herself “Da Baddest Bitch”? Because if so, we’re taking her word for it.
They were really just friends. Jocks & Stiletto Jill has more
With James Harden, she said that they were really just friends. James hadn’t reached “BEARD” status yet per Trina. She knew that he was going to go through that transition period. It’s when an athlete starts to realize he might just be the man. His money is getting long, the women are getting badder, and he just wants to ride that wave for a minute. He too is looking for the “fun girls”
You know what. We believe her.
James Harden’s girlfriend Olla Naber, IG Model known as Arab Money?
This one slipped by us, but during Valentine’s Day of 2019, the good folks over at SportsGossip.com
— SportsGossip.com (@sportsgossip) February 15, 2019
Apparently this couple was together during the spring of 2019 and through the Rockets playoff push. There’s not a ton else about these two, and if there is a relationship, they’re doing an expert job keeping it quiet. Is there something going on here? You be the judge!
2020 Rumor: James Harden’s girlfriend Gail Golden
We’ll give our friends over at Heavy.com the dap on this one. They put in some serious legwork to piece this one together.
Essentially Gail Golden is a social media presence with nearly 200k followiers, which is what first caught people’s attention. Folks put together that she’d been court side to a number of Rockets games lately. The number of games that is more that just “oh that’s interesting.” There has been some subtle hints and not so subtle non-denials about her relationship status with Harden. Is it a troll, is it someone enjoying the pandemonium in the streets, or is it James Harden’s girlfriend? You be the judge.
Anyways back to the social media influencer. That undersells her career accomplishments in a big way. She’s not your typical Instagram influencer. She has a career as a cyber security consultant, after graduating Texas State with a BBA in Computer Information Systems. This ain’t no flat-tummy-tea hawker. She’s legit!
