The Kardashian household is no stranger to the perpetual cycle of rumors and drama.
Kim Kardashian recently discussed her close friendship with Khloé Kardashian’s controversial ex-partner, Tristan Thompson.
Khloé and Tristan had an on-again, off-again relationship from 2016 to 2021 and welcomed their first daughter, True, in 2018. Throughout their tumultuous relationship, Tristan faced multiple accusations of infidelity, including an incident with Jordyn Woods, who was a close family friend at the time. These actions resulted in significant public backlash against him.
Despite Khloé’s initial decision to forgive Tristan and rekindle their romance, it was revealed that he had secretly fathered another child outside their relationship in 2021. To make matters more complicated, he and Khloé were quietly engaged and preparing for the arrival of their second child via surrogate.
The news of Tristan’s paternity scandal came to light when Maralee Nichols, the mother of his child, sued him for pregnancy and child-related expenses in December 2021. Khloé learned about the court case through leaked legal documents, alongside the rest of the world, and this emotional moment was documented on the Kardashians’ Hulu series.
Despite her initial reaction, Khloé ultimately chose to maintain an amicable relationship with Tristan for the sake of their two children. She even shared that she has established “strict boundaries” to prevent any rekindling of their romantic involvement.
Notably, Kim has remained very close to Tristan and has made public appearances with him even after his paternity scandal left Khloé “traumatized.”
Recent accusations of a romantic connection between Kim and Tristan were raised by a popular TikToker, who dropped a blind item over the weekend.
Interestingly, rumors of their closeness began in the summer when Kim attended one of Tristan’s games in July.
Later that month, Kim was spotted leaving the Miami-based restaurant Gekko with Tristan.
In recent months, there have been speculations linking Kim to Odell Beckham Jr., the star receiver for the Baltimore Ravens. However, lately, there hasn’t been much information or news about this rumored pairing.
During the same period, the NBA star was photographed spending time with Kim’s son, Saint, on his own.
As the saying goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
