How Does Tristan Thompson’s Mom Make Him a Better Co-Parent With Khloe Kardashian?

When Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson‘s relationship blew up in front of the world, a lot of people were hurt. Kardashian mourned the relationship, and the woman Thompson was caught with, Jordyn Woods, lost almost everything because of her involvement.

But no one was hurt more through the entire ordeal than Kardashian and Thompson’s daughter, True. Although she may not realize it now because she’s so young, True lost her intact family.

Now, she’ll grow up in a split home. However, Kardashian is determined to minimize the damage. But does Thompson feel the same way? With the help of his mom, Thompson may be getting closer to doing the right thing.

As much as Kardashian wishes that Thompson would be a part of True‘s life, she’s mostly raising her by herself. According to reports, Kardashian spends every day and night with True. Thompson doesn’t really step up to help, and Kardashian wants True to always have a parent around, so she ends up doing most things by herself. At this point, Kardashian is arguably living the life of a single mom. 

One bonus to all this time she spends with True is the great bond they share. They’re really close, and True’s a total momma’s girl. Kardashian is putting everything else aside right now to concentrate on True. A source told Hollywood Life: “Eventually, she’d love to have more, but dating and everything that comes with that is still not on her mind. She’s still healing, but she’s getting there.”

Although Thompson hasn’t been spending much time with True, his mother, Andrea, is a big part of True’s life. In fact, Andrea communicates more with Kardashian than with Thompson, so she knows all about what her granddaughter needs. And recently, she’s decided True needs her daddy. 

According to reports, Thompson’s mom sat him down for a deep discussion. “Tristan Thompson’s mom Andrea has been very influential when it comes to True being in Tristan’s life,” a source told Hollywood Life. “The two had a real heart to heart about his involvement in his daughter’s life and he really did listen.”

Andrea encouraged her son to spend more time with True, and somehow, she got through to him. There’s been a real change in Thompson’s behavior recently. He’s been making an effort to spend more time with True, and this makes Kardashian really happy. 

Khloe Kardashian is committed to co-parenting with Tristan Thompson

When Kardashian was still in a relationship with Thompson, she tried really hard to make it work, for the sake of True. She wanted to avoid having her daughter grow up in a divided home. However, now that they’re separated, Kardashian is committed to being a good co-parent, also for True’s sake. 

In a recent interview for the podcast, Divorce Sucks!, Kardashian explained the difficulty she’s had to co-parent with Thompson. “For me, Tristan and I broke up not too long ago so it’s really raw,” she said.

But, despite this, Kardashian is committed to a positive co-parenting relationship. She doesn’t want True to pick up on any negative energy between them, even at her young age. 

Kardashian wants Thompson to be a part of True’s life as much as possible. She invited him to her birthday party, and tries to encourage him to see her whenever possible. 

“I know she’s going to want to look back at all of her childhood memories like we all do,” Kardashian explained. “I know her dad is a great person, and I know how much he loves her and cares about her, so I want him to be there.” 

True is clearly the priority for Kardashian. She wants her to have a father and Kardashian has said that Thompson can see True “whenever he wants.” She’d never stand in the way of her daughter seeing her dad.
