Having your significant other be disloyal to you is bound to feel terrible and painful, but I would assume it’s even worse when there’s a child in the middle. Where you might just break up, curse their name, and move on, now it means that you’ll have to find ways to include them in your and your child’s life.
Apparently, this is the situation that Khloe Kardashian is dealing with.
Her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, repeatedly cheated and humiliated her during their relationship, even mere days before their first child together was born. However, the reality TV star forgave him, and the two seemed to be working towards making their relationship work – until a few weeks ago. In late February, news broke out that the basketball player had been involved in yet another cheating incident, this time with Khloe’s little sister’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.
The two broke up immediately after, though rumors over a potential separation had been circling a while before that. But now, with their daughter True’s birthday coming up in April 12, the Good American founder has been left with the task of figuring out a way to include her basketball player ex into the celebrations.
According to a source who spoke for People magazine, Khloe wants to involve him somehow, but she knows it will be hard because of how angry her entire family is with him, especially her sister Kim who is apparently “livid.” She was also the first of the bunch to unfollow the athlete on Instagram.
“Khloe is figuring out how to get Tristan involved,” the insider revealed. “She can’t see how he can be around her family at a party, though. Everyone is just too upset with him.”
People’s source also said that Kim has been “there for Khloé, letting her vent and talk about it. They’ve been in constant contact, and Kim is totally supportive. Guys may come and go, but the bond between the girls is never going away, and they’re committed to supporting each other.”
After Jordyn Woods appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk and claimed that she and Tristan had not slept together, only shared a drunken kiss, and that she was not the reason the couple broke up, Khloe took to Twitter to accuse her of lying. She also seemed to defend Tristan, tweeting he is “equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter.”
She later backtracked on that, however, and admitted that it was Tristan’s fault their family broke up and that Tristan cheating on her and humiliating her wasn’t as shocking as the first time but claimed it has been “harder [and] more painful been being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love [and] treat like a little sister.”
