After all she’s been through.
Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend and baby Daddy, Tristan Thompson, has been accused of cheating on her as she awaits the birth of their first child together.
TMZ and the MailOnline have published two separate videos, one apparently filmed in October 2017 and the other apparently filmed last weekend, which allegedly show Tristan kissing two women. The Shade Room also shared photos of Tristan appearing to enter a hotel with one of the women in question.
If the allegations are true, there are a few reasons this is pretty heartbreaking for Khloé.
Tristan may have cheated on Khloé just a week before they found out the gender of their baby.
The footage posted by TMZ shows Tristan appearing to kiss a woman outside a hookah lounge in October 2017.
We know, from an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that Khloé received the news of her baby’s gender while on a trip to San Fransisco with her two sisters, Kim and Kourtney.
And, tracing the sister’s social media profiles and paparazzi photos from the weekend, we also know that they were in San Francisco for two nights – 12 and 13 October.
TMZ have reported the footage was shot on 7 October, meaning the alleged incident occurred a week before they found out they were expecting a girl.
Up until these allegations hit, Khloé had praised Tristan for being so “amazing and supportive” throughout her pregnancy.
Take the caption on her pregnancy announcement photo, for example. In it she thanked Tristan specifically for “making the experience magical.”
I’m so blessed that Tristan has been beyond supportive! He’s helped me overcome any fear or anxiety that I have! He’s always so reassuring and confident about everything when it comes to our baby. Having a partner that is equally as excited as you are, and is such a support system, is crucial! Tristan has been an angel to me! This process is trying—physically and mentally—but Tristan has made everything as easy and beautiful as it can be! More than I could have imagined.
It looked like she was finally over everything from the past.
Anyone who has followed Khloé over the years will know what she went through during her marriage with Lamar Odom. For years she kept it a secret that Lamar had not only cheated on her multiple times, but that he was also in the throes of a drug addiction. After years of trying to make it work, Khloé eventually decided to end the marriage.
But even her decision to get a divorce was a tortuous one.
During a conversation with Kim and Kourtney, Khloé said: “I don’t think he understands [when I tell him he needs to fix this marriage]. I’ve said to him: ‘If you don’t start showing up to therapy then I’m done, I’m going to file,’ but the saddest part is, when that doesn’t even rattle the person – I threaten it, and no one even blinks an eye. So then I wonder, so what have I been fighting for?”
In a recent KUWTK episode, Khloé revealed she’d lost faith in love until she met Tristan – something she echoed this in this caption of her Valentine’s Day post.
My answer for this probably doesn’t apply to everybody, but I knew Tristan was the one very quickly—I have never felt so comfortable or so safe with someone.
Despite being the most maternal of all the Kardashians, there were worries that Khloé would never have children.
After experiencing fertility issues and then sacrificing having children altogether in order to support Lamar during their marriage, some fans worried she’d never get the ~happily ever after~ she’d dreamed of. In fact, in one poignant KUWTK scene, Khloé said: “Just think that out of all the sisters, I have to be the one to not have babies.”
And in her pregnancy announcement, Khloé revealed that she’d prayed to become a mother.
She wrote: “I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient.”
As a result, people were overjoyed for her when she announced she was pregnant. Kris Jenner’s reaction to the news pretty much said it all.
She said: “I’m ecstatically surprised. I always thought that Khloé might be one of those women that didn’t have kids, and I struggled with that. It made me really sad, because there’s no one that was born to do this more than Khloé.”
