Does Khloe Kardashian Give Tristan Thompson the Benefit of the Doubt Too Much?

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have a rather complicated relationship. They started dating in 2016, had one daughter together, and broke up in early 2019 after Thompson cheated on Kardashian with her family friend Jordyn Woods. These days, Kardashian is determined to be on good terms with Thompson for the sake of their child. However, some fans believe that she might be a little too accommodating to Thompson.

Before the scandal with Woods, Thompson had been caught cheating on Kardashian at least a couple of times with other women.

The first incident happened in 2017. A few weeks after Kardashian announced that she was pregnant, Thompson was spotted getting cozy with two women at a lounge.

Then, Thompson cheated again a few days before Kardashian was due to give birth. In April 2018, a video came out showing Thompson hanging out with more women at a night club.

After both of these incidents, fans believed Kardashian should break up with Thompson. However, she continued to be with him despite his reputation as a serial cheater. It was not until he cheated on her with a close family friend that they allegedly parted ways for good.

Just several weeks after Kardashian and Thompson broke up, the latter made an appearance at True’s first birthday party. A lot of onlookers got glimpses of it on social media.

Although many thought it was an awkward meeting for Kardashian and Thompson, a source said: “Khloe always wants True to have her father in her life, so Tristan is invited to be around for the celebration. Khloe will never let her issues with Tristan get in the way of True having a relationship with her dad.”

Fans think that Khloe Kardashian gives Tristan Thompson too many chances

Recently, fans also got to see what the birthday event was really like on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. As many have guessed, there was a lot of drama and tension between Kardashian and Thompson, as well as between Kardashian and the rest of her family.

However, some fans are not feeling too sympathetic towards her. While watching the episodes, a lot of viewers started noticing that it seems like Kardashian has been giving Thompson the benefit of the doubt too many times, even when he treats her and her family badly.

“Considering their situation – how he humiliated her so badly, and how fresh it was – the fact that she is having him at True’s party and demanding her family be nice to him when he’s a total d**k and doesn’t deserve it just strikes me as unnecessary,” a user on Reddit.com said. “I just wonder if she is using the whole saintly ‘anything for my child’ act as an excuse to continue contact with him.”

Another fan commented that Kardashian is “way too nice” to Thompson. “He continues to act the way he does, there’s no consequences for him, it’s all a big joke for him,” the fan said. “If that was me, I would have banned him from the birthing room & not invited him to True’s first birthday party.”

Someone else also thinks that Kardashian would probably get back with Thompson again in the future, given how she has often kept him around despite his behavior: “I really wouldn’t be surprised if she got back with him or if they had another kid ‘so True can have a sibling.'”
