Kim Kardashian Reveals Why Khloé Stayed with Tristan Thompson After His Cheating Scandal
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that the Kardashian/Jenner clan sticks together no matter what. Whether they’re dealing with criticism, rumors, or relationships issues, the ladies always have each other’s backs. So, when Khloé Kardashian‘s boyfriend Tristan Thompson was accused of cheating on her days before she gave birth to their daughter, True, the family was prepared to handle it together. Now, Kim Kardashian revealed why she supported her younger sister when she decided to reconcile with Tristan after videos surfaced of him online appearing to show him cheating with multiple women throughout the course of their relationship.
When his infidelity first made headlines in April, Kim didn’t shy away from publicly talking trash about Tristan. She made her feelings clear, calling the situation “so f*cked up” during an appearance on Ellen. “We were really rooting for Khloé, and we still are. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation all over,” she said at the time.
Her not-so-nice comments prompted Tristan to block her on all social media, but Kim later posted an awkward video on her Instagram Stories in June asking Tristan to unblock her. Since then, it seems like all is well, but it’s safe to assume these two don’t necessarily have the best relationship. However, Kim is willing to let it all go as long as Khloé is happy.
She hinted that Khloé’s decision to stay with Tristan was a choice made more for their now-three-month-old daughter. “Her motherly instincts kicked in and she has to do what makes her happy. So we’ll support that,” Kim said while speaking with On Air With Ryan Seacrest.
Kim confirmed that the scandal will, in fact, be discussed in the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, adding that some important conversations were captured on camera.
“I don’t want to give too much away, because we genuinely had those conversations and sometimes we were filming and sometimes we weren’t,” Kim said. “It was more maybe when Khloé wanted her privacy and no cameras when she was in Cleveland going through that, [but] the sisters were still all filming and talking [about] how to approach it and what to do.”
Kim also acknowledged that this situation was something they’ve never experienced before. “It was definitely new territory for us when you have a new baby coming into the world. I think ultimately, we always want her to be happy, but it gets all clouded when there’s a baby, you know?” she said.
The reality star also teased that viewers will get to see some of the drama unfold, including her and her family flying to Cleveland, Ohio, when Khloé went into labor.
“We were all flying to Cleveland when she went into labor and we were filming and [Kris Jenner] didn’t want anyone to know she was in labor, so my mom just left and got on a plane, and then Khloé called us,” Kim shared. “And it was like so much drama getting there. You’ll see it all.”
