Was Khloe Kardashian Referencing Tristan Thompson?

Fans noticed that one quote on Kardashian’s Instagram Story seemed to be about her relationship with Thompson. If you need a refresher, he cheated on  Kardashian with her sister Kylie Jenner’s former BFF Jordyn Woods.

As a result, Kardashian and Thompson broke up in February 2019. On her  Instagram Story today, she shared this quote: “The saddest thing about our story is that we could have made it work. If you cared about me like I cared about you, you would have fought for me. But you didn’t. So it’s clear, I was right every time that I told you that I loved you more. You always denied it and said you loved me more, but I guess now we know.”

If it’s about her relationship with Thompson, it definitely gives fans some inside perspective about her thoughts on their romance.

Kardashian’s past quotes also seem to be about their failed relationship

While the reality star shares any number of inspirational quotes most days, there are always those words of wisdom that seem to be related to Thompson. Last month she shared one quote that read: “Shoutout to women who haven’t felt like themselves lately, but you get up every day & refuse to quit; stay strong.”

Another quote read: “When you miss me, remember, when you had me, I wasn’t enough.”

Kardashian wants to keep Thompson in daughter True’s life

When Kardashian and Thompson’s daughter, True, recently turned 1, fans wondered if he would be part of the inevitable birthday celebration.

It was certainly a complicated circumstance, but a source told PEOPLE that even though Thompson cheated on her, “Khloe has no desire to shut Tristan out of True’s life. He is her father and Khloe is much bigger than that. They communicate about True of course, but they aren’t getting back together.”

It sounded like Kardashian wouldn’t be inviting Thompson to the party, as the source shared: “So for True’s birthday, Khloe is figuring out how to get Tristan involved. She can’t see how he can be around her family at a party, though. Everyone is just too upset with him.”

Thompson and Kardashian shared an awkward moment at True’s party

Kardashian did end up inviting Thompson to True’s party and fans couldn’t help but notice the awkward moment the exes shared.

In a video on her Instagram Story, Thompson was seen to the side while Kardashian held True and talked with guests. He reached out to hold True, but Kardashian appeared to snub him and pivoted away from him. Another video, however, showed Thompson holding his daughter while guests sang Happy Birthday to her.

Certainly, the cheating scandal has created an uncomfortable tension between the two, but Kardashian wants to ensure that True has her father in her life.
