How the Kardashians Would Reportedly Feel If Khloé Got Back with Tristan Thompson
Khloé Kardashian has had a rocky relationship with Tristan Thompson. Their romance was plagued and marred by lies, cheating, and betrayal before it ended in early 2019. However, it appears that Kardashian and Thompson are slowly getting back to a good place. In the days that have followed since their breakup, the two have reportedly been talking more and trying to work through their issues.
Fans have been speculating that Kardashian and Thompson are on the verge of getting back together, which obviously would draw ire from critics. But what would the Kardashians say about it?
Looking back at Khloé Kardashian’s relationship with Tristan Thompson
After meeting through a mutual friend, Kardashian and Thompson began dating in 2016. The two went public with their relationship in the fall of that year.
By December 2017, they were expecting. As Kardashian awaited the arrival of their baby, Thompson allegedly got caught cheating on her with another woman. The news broke on April 10, 2018 — just two days before she gave birth to their daughter, True.
Despite the affair, Kardashian wound up giving Thompson another chance. But when he allegedly got caught cheating again in February 2019 — this time with her family friend, Jordyn Woods — Kardashian broke up with Thompson for good.
Ever since they split, Thompson has reportedly continually tried to woo Kardashian and showered her with lavish gifts. Most recently, he showed the reality star some love on Valentine’s Day 2020 by posting a photo of her and True to his Instagram page.
Where Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson stand now
Thompson’s efforts might have gotten through to Kardashian. Multiple outlets have reported that the two are speaking more and that their relationship is improving.
“Khloe and Tristan’s relationship is getting better and better as more time has gone on. It’s taken a lot of work but they’re communicating more and are in a better place,” an insider told HollywoodLife on Feb. 14. “They discuss co-parenting all of the time. They talk daily, a lot of times multiple times a day. Tristan has been seeing True and Khloé both as much as he can.”
Sources had previously told the outlet in January that Kardashian and Thompson had been taking it slow and both seemed open to reconciling.
“What changed for Khloé around the new year was she realized that Tristan was making positive changes for their family and she really wants to see if she can make it work not only for True’s sake but [for] her own,” a source said at the time. “She never really got over Tristan and she knows the love she has for him won’t just go away and isn’t easy to find.”
It would be a shock to see them reconcile, as Kardashian has said in interviews that she had closed that “chapter” of her life. However, we have seen her give second and third chances in the past, so maybe we shouldn’t put a reconciliation past her.
How the Kardashians would reportedly react to Khloé getting back with Tristan Thompson, according to sources
Fans might not like Thompson for the way he hurt Kardashian, but her family members are reportedly a lot more forgiving. Sources told HollywoodLife that they are cordial to True’s dad and will respect him no matter what.
“Kim [Kardashian West] and the rest of the family want to send occasional olive branches because, as mad as they all were when he hurt Khloé, they all know that Tristan needs to be in True’s life,” the source shared.
“To help facilitate that they choose to treat him well and support him by inviting him to dinners or watching his games,” the insider continued. “Kim is all about giving people second chances and, whether or not Khloé and Tristan get back together, she wants to make sure the father of her niece is getting respect from the family, especially if he is trying to be better himself.”
In a new teaser for Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 18, Kim tells her sister that she had dinner with Thompson, explaining that she wants to keep the lines of communication open and remain friendly. Their other family members did not share whether they feel the same way, but another source told HollywoodLife: “[The Kardashian family] all always support one another deep down with whatever makes them happy and they know all relationships have their ups and downs.”
So while many people would be pissed to see them back together, at least Kardashian will reportedly have some support from her family.
