Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are hit by reports that their relationship is on the rocks. The NBA star wants to focus on his career, and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wants to settle down.

A source told OK! magazine: "Khloe can't stop pushing for marriage and babies, and now he's asked her for some 'time out.'"

"Tristan's barely coping with becoming a dad and Khloe's driving him crazy with her needs. She wants a ring on her finger and a baby on the way and she won't let up," the insider said: "It's totally distracting him from his game too, so he's told her that he needs some space. They're still talking, but for now things are on hold."

"Tristan promises big things if they win the championship! He is going to take all that focus and put it squarely on Khloe. Their friends are even buzzing he might propose," the source shared.

Though it is not known if the claims are true, NBA star James Harden had revealed why he split with Kardashian. The 27-year-old basketball player revealed he was unhappy with the attention surrounding the couple's relationship.

During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Harden explained why he ended his eight-month romance with the reality star. He said" "I didn't like all the attention. I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn't getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don't need that. It wasn't uncomfortable, but it wasn't me."

"I don't need pictures of myself when I'm driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that," he added.
