The ink has barely dried on Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom's divorce papers, but rumors are already swirling that a new romance is brewing for the reality star.
Just hours before Kardashian, 29, filed for divorce Friday morning, citing irreconcilable differences and requesting to drop Odom from her name, she was spotted hitting a private gym in Beverly Hills with L.A. Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp.
"They are just friends and have been for a long time," a source tells PEOPLE of the relationship buzz, spurred by the baseball star's Instagram post of Kris Jenner's Christmas tree on Thursday. "Khloé is absolutely heartbroken right now [over Lamar] and dating someone is the last thing she's thinking about."

In a sign that things may be turning around for Lamar Odom, the troubled NBA star had a two-hour meeting with Los Angeles Clippers management after training with the team on Friday, PEOPLE has confirmed with multiple sources.
The power forward, who was a free agent earlier this year, did not have his contract renewed by the Clippers after a disappointing season. He has also been battling substance abuse issues and marital problems with his wife, Khloé Kardashian.
"He has been talking to them for weeks," a source close to the Kardashian family tells PEOPLE. "He's close to signing. They were definitely apprehensive but Lamar has shown huge improvement over the last few weeks and everyone around him believes he's sober."

It hasn't been an easy past several months for Khloé Kardashian Odom – and the reality star opened up about her rocky marriage to Lamar Odom on the season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Sunday.
"As many times as I have protected Lamar or dodged a bullet for him, lately everything is getting more than what I can protect or control," Khloé, 29, said during a confessional after her husband's agent called looking for him. "I'm getting bombarded with questions, and I don't know what to say."
Reports first surfaced in August that the former Los Angeles Lakers star, 34, was using "hardcore recreational drugs" for two years and even spent time in rehab.
