We know you all are pretty intrigued to know what happened between the NBA player Tristan Thompson and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian. Read the article further to know the story of these two.
When did Khloe and Tristan spark dating rumors?
The whirlwind romance between these two began in the year 2016. As per the reports of TMZ, Khloe and Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson started spending time together in September of 2016.
During the same month, the duo was spotted out and about in public while leaving a nightclub called Bootsy Bellows where they seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
At that time, Khloe’s mom Kris Jenner told Us Weekly, “They are really cute. She’s having a good time. He seems like a really nice guy. I think just with any relationship, just in life, I think it’s about chemistry and about values.”
Tristan got accused of cheating on Khloe with two women in February 2018
In the year 2018, the fairytale romance of these lovebirds took a turn for the worse. Then, Khloe was pregnant, she was expecting her first baby with Tristan. According to the reports of Us Weekly, while on a night out it didn’t seem like Tristan had a baby on the way with Khloe. He had an inappropriate encounter with not one but two ladies.
Thompson was photographed getting cozy with models Jasmine Rose and Maya Nova James on February 16, 2018. A source told Us Weekly, “Two girls were hanging out with Tristan and his crew, some other basketball players and Canadian friends, at Avenue in L.A. during All-Star Weekend.”
The source further added, “The girls were at his table and Tristan was paying more attention to one of them, but he wasn’t all over her. These girls are models and were in a fashion show for Angel Brinks that weekend and are shooting a show with her.”
An insider concluded by saying, “Tristan wasn’t kissing on the girls, but he had his arms around and on the one that looks more like Khloé, Jasmine. Tristan was flirting with her and didn’t look or act like someone who had a pregnant girlfriend. The flirting and body language were definitely inappropriate for someone in a serious relationship expecting a baby.”
Thompson was alleged of cheating on Kardashian with another woman
On April 11, 2018, Tristan gets accused of cheating on Khloe as a few clips of him kissing other women go viral on the internet. He was spotted kissing a woman at a rooftop bar called PH-D in Manhattan. As per the reports, the woman in the video was none other than Instagram model Lani Blair.
A source close to the Kardashian family told Page Six, that Khloe was ballistic when she found out about the cheating scandal. She was “devastated when she saw the pictures of Tristan with that girl, she went absolutely ballistic at him.”
The source continued, “She is not only hurt, she is humiliated and worried for their child. How could he do this, and so publicly, when their baby daughter could arrive within a week?”
Kardashian announced the arrival of their daughter True
Khloe welcomed her baby girl True into the world on April 12, 2018, with Tristan and the rest of her clan alongside her. She confirmed the news on Instagram.
“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE. Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”, she captioned the post.
Khloe and Thompson got back together after the whole cheating scandal in May 2018. She knew that he cheated on her but she still loved him. You know The Heart Wants What It Wants.
An insider told Us Weekly, “Those around Khloe areas they can. It’s hard because if everyone distances themselves from Tristan, they’ll risk losing Khloe. Luckily there’s this buffer time. She always planned to stay in Cleveland for the first three months. Now with Tristan in the playoffs for possibly another month, no decision needs to be made right now.”
Tristan was caught flirting with another woman in September 2018
Once again, the basketball player was clicked getting close to a woman who was not Khloe at a club in Los Angeles on September 26, 2018. A source told Us Weekly, “Tristan and a girl were chatting and flirting throughout the night. They were very touchy-feely. He had his hand on her butt.”
Thompson cheated on Khloe with Kylie Jenner’s BFF Jordyn Woods in February 2019
At the time, it was reported Thompson cheated on Khloe with her younger sister Kylie Jenner’s BFF Jordyn Woods on February 20, 2019. Right when we thought that all was going well between Khloe and her baby daddy, things began to fall apart again.
Tristan admitted to the whole cheating scandal. Khloe gave plenty of chances to her beau but may he just was not the guy for her. It looked like things were officially over between the two of them.
A source told Us Weekly, “Tristan isn’t too worried about not seeing True, or Khloé establishing new rules when it comes to co-parenting. He honestly doesn’t really care and was over it. He was never trying to win Khloé back.”
During an interaction with Andy Cohen, the Tv reality star spilled the beans on both Tristan and Woods. She said, “I personally don’t talk to her, but I think she’s doing really well in her personal life.”
Khloe added, “I think that’s a huge misconception [that I only forgave Tristan]. I don’t have any grudge against Jordyn. I think people make mistakes, people live, and they learn and I forgive both parties. How could I forgive Tristan and not Jordyn? That sounds asinine in my opinion.”
Khloe’s drama with Jordyn aired on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’
The social media influencer talked about what happened between Tristan and Woods in an episode of the hit show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Around the same time, Jordyn did a collab with Kylie to which Khloe said, “And Jordyn, for you to be turning 21, I’ve known you forever, and I’m so proud of you and the woman you have grown into and you’re growing into.”
Kardashian added, “And to see you guys just stick together and be best friends through thick and thin, it’s such a blessing. Congratulations on everything and this’ll be a huge success!”
Tristan and Khloe called it quits in June 2021
As per the reports of E! News, the duo broke up once again on June 21, 2021, as Thompson was clicked entering a bedroom with three women at a party in LA. We just feel bad for Khloe as she went through so much pain and that too for nothing.
A source told the media outlet, “He seemed like he was in a great mood and wanted to party. He was drinking and was partying into the early hours of the morning.” He was apparently telling people he was single.
An insider told Entertainment Tonight, “The two are on good terms and at the end of the day, Khloe just wants True to have a good relationship with her father.” The two reconciled in August of 2021.
Tristan got accused of fathering a child while he was dating Khloe in December 2021
Out of a sudden, a piece of news came out that stated the professional basketballer was expecting his third child with Maralee Nichols. She gave birth to a baby boy on December 1, 2022.
Tristan and Khloe parted ways again in December 2021. Sources reported that Kardashian stayed in a relationship with Thompson “because she always believed he would change”, especially after spending the COVID-19 lockdown together.
Later on, after the results of the paternity test came out it was proven that Thompson fathered a child with Nicols. He wrote on Instagram,” Khloe, You don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years.”
Tristan added, “My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
Will Khloe and Tristan ever get back together?
The answer to the above question is a huge no. During her latest interaction with Robin Roberts, Kardashian said, “With Tristan, I did feel incredibly safe in the beginning and I felt really good for a time. I remember when he cheated on me right before I gave birth and I was able to still have him in the delivery room.”
The 37-year-old further added, “So yes, it might have looked strange to the outside world, but when my daughter watches my home videos, those videos are going to be as pure and perfect as I was able to make them.”
Khloe concluded by saying, “I still think he’s a great guy, and he’s a great dad. He’s just not the guy for me. I think at the end of the day, all of us aspire to have blissfulness. We want to feel happy, we want to feel safe.”
We just hope that Khloe can find the person that she has been looking for forever who treats her like the queen she already is and we are glad that she decided to part ways with Tristan as he wasn’t an ideal fit for her.
