Are Khloe Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, trying to work things out for their daughter, True? Despite a long history of cheating, Tristan has gotten many second chances in the past. And now Khloe and Tristan were spotted together again.
The pictures, which were published by The Daily Mail, show Khloe and Tristan co-parenting with True. Both celebs were dressed in activewear, Tristan in an all-white outfit, Khloe sporting a black ensemble with a pair of white sneaks.
As of Tuesday, reps for both Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have been silent on the matter, and neither the basketball star nor his ex has confirmed any of the spicy rumors. Sources did assert that Khloe is still single and is “OK with it,” but fans believe she and Tristan are trying to work through their issues. As of now it’s unclear whether Khloe is giving Tristan another shot or if they’re just trying to amicably co-parent.
An insider close to the Kardashian sister explained that Khloe “continues to co-parent with Tristan and they spend time together as a family. Even though he has disappointed Khloé so many times, she is still very loyal to Tristan” The insider continued, claiming that Khloe “doesn’t like when people criticize him. He will always be special to her. It’s very possible that they will get back together eventually.”
Poor Khloe has had a lot of bad luck with men over the years. Unfortunately, her problems with Tristan Thompson don’t seem shocking.
Here’s a look at the troubled waters she’s swum in over the years…
Quick To Rush In
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were quick to tie the knot and even quicker to fall in love. The couple traded vows in 2009, just one month after meeting at a party for Lamar’s teammate Metta World Peace. Though many wanted to disregard their true feelings, the reality star and her NBA hubby remained married.
In 2011, the pair starred in their own reality TV series, Khloé & Lamar, which followed the celebrity couple as they balanced their chaotic daily lives, (even more chaotic) families, and the romance that kept their relationship alive. The series only lasted two seasons and ended after a bombshell trade that saw Lamar leave the L.A. Lakers for a life in Texas with the Dallas Mavericks.
Though the couple seemed strong while the reality show aired, there was trouble brewing behind the scenes and in 2013 Khloe decided she had had enough.
The Long Divorce
After they were married for two years, things started to go wrong off-camera. Lamar was caught cheating on the reality star on several occasions, and his drug problems got worse. On December 13, 2013, Khloe filed for divorce and requested legal restoration of her Kardashian name.
The exact reason for the divorce was unclear at the time, but Lamar admitted during an interview with Andy Cohen that things went downhill “due to my behavior and some bad decisions.” He continued, saying that “we have to live with the decisions that we make.”
Both parties didn’t officially sign the paperwork until July 15, because Khloe “flip-flopped” on the decision “several times,” a source told Us Weekly. “But she can’t imagine having kids with someone who refuses to seek help for his disease,” the source added.
Then, in October 2015, while the divorce papers were on the judge’s desk, Lamar was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital after suffering an overdose at the Love Ranch brothel. Khloe stayed by his side as the NBA player lied in a coma for four days. She also withdrew the pending divorce papers so she could make medical decisions on his behalf. However, despite his struggle with addiction, Khloe decided to call it quits. In 2016, the pair were officially divorced and Khloe was ready to move on.
In his memoir, Lamar Odom claimed that “For a while, being with her was bliss and I was the happiest I’ve ever been. We were one of the most famous couples in Hollywood and we made more money together than we had individually.” He continued, admitted that “at the start of the marriage, I was faithful to her. But I could not handle the lethal cocktail of the spotlight, addiction, a diminishing career, and infidelity.”
A New Romance Blooms For Khloe Kardashian
Shortly after things officially ended with her now ex-husband, Khloe Kardashian was linked to another NBA star, this time from the Boston Celtics. Though initially linked in September 2016, the couple made a huge announcement only a year later: she’s pregnant!
The excitement of a baby, however, wasn’t enough to keep Tristan faithful. Before the April 2018 delivery date, the NBA star was caught cheating with multiple women. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum decided to forgive and forget, likely for the sake of her baby, but 10 months later she decided she was done.
Enough Is Enough
After Tristan Thompson was caught kissing Jordyn Woods (Kylie Jenner’s BFF at the time), Khloe left him but was forced to co-parent with Tristan until they got back together last year. “It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done,” Khloe said in a conversation about co-parenting with Tristan. “Because you have your own personal feelings, but when you can put those aside and you just put your child first — it sounds great when you’re all in love and everything, [but] when you go through something, it’s such a challenge.”
Despite the challenges and broken trust, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson reconciled in August 2020, while quarantining together during the Covid-19 pandemic.
One theory states that there was more behind the scene action than the couple is letting on. An April interview with model Sydney Chase seemingly exposed a hookup between her and the NBA star in the fall, but Tristan claimed that story wasn’t true. He posted six emojis on Twitter to call out Chase on what he claims is a made-up story, but this wasn’t the first time he was unfaithful.
The Next Phase
Many wonder if Khloe Kardashian will ever find a man who’s faithful. The reality star is a great mom to her 3-year-old daughter, and fans want to see her happy. Her rocky relationship past, and even rockier relationship present, has fans concerned. They want Khloe to find her Happily Ever After.
