At the time, Khloé was unaware of the news, but Kim filled her in, much to her disbelief. As the gravity of the situation set in, Khloé began to cry. Kim ushered the camera crew out of the room to give Khloé privacy as she dealt with Thompson’s betrayal again.

“All of you f***ing trolls on the internet that make Khloé feel like the biggest piece of s*** — I will find each and every one of you and … not threaten you on TV, but it’s wrong,” Kim said.
“You guys don’t understand — when you have a child, you’ll do anything to try to make it work and I’m so proud of who Khloé is that she wanted to give her relationship a second chance even after [Thompson] dogged her and embarrassed the s*** out of her. When the whole world is looking at you, laughing at you, calling you every name in the book, do you know how hard that is?”Kim Kardashian, ‘The Kardashians’
