Inside Kanye West and Tristan Thompson’s Confrontation Over Cheating Drama

Although Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson‘s relationship ended in disaster, she has always tried to include him in their daughter’s life. In the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians we finally found out what happened when Kardashian allowed Thompson to attend True’s first birthday party, and the result wasn’t good. Not only did Thompson act inappropriately with Kardashian, but he got into a confrontation with Kanye West.

Kardashian has always wanted True to have her father in her life. She invited Thompson to True’s birthday for their daughter’s sake. As Kris Jenner explained during an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians: “Hopefully when True looks back at all the pictures, she’ll see both of her parents there having a good time.” 

Although it was awkward, Kardashian agreed. But the birthday party would be the first time that she and Thompson would see each other in person since his cheating was exposed. To avoid the awkward moment having to happen in front of everyone, Kardashian invited Thompson to her house the night before. 

However, Thompson may have taken this as an indication that Kardashian was interested in working things out with him. She explained how the meeting went on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. According to Kardashian, Thompson asked her out for a glass of wine and even tried to kiss her. She expressed her frustrations to her assistant the next day. 

“I go, ‘This is the problem with you. You can’t just take what you get,'” she said. “Then this morning he was like, ‘Thank you for letting me see True. She looked great, you looked even better.’ … Sometimes I feel like if I give an inch, he’ll take a mile and take my kindness for weakness.”

When it came to the actual party, Kardashian was nervous about how the whole thing would go down. Her entire family was upset with him and wanted to protect her — not exactly a welcoming environment for Thompson.

Although it was a little tense, everyone in the Kardashian clan was on their best behavior at the birthday party and tried to make Thompson feel welcome, for True’s sake. However, it was Thompson himself who decided to take the opportunity to confront a member of the family. 

During the Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, the camera zoomed in on Thompson and West having an obviously upsetting conversation. Unfortunately, there was no audio, but you could tell by their body language that they were having some kind of argument. 

Afterward, West explained what the confrontation had been about. 

“He felt like we were using my music to reinforce his narrative,” West said. 

In a teaser trailer for the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, West’s song, Runaway had been used while showing scenes that referred to Thompson’s cheating scandal. The song, which has the lyrics, “Let’s have a toast for the douche bags/ Let’s have a toast for the a**holes/ Let’s have a toast for the scumbags/ Every one of them that I know,” apparently upset Thompson.

Luckily, the confrontation didn’t turn violent or even draw too much attention at the party. But Kardashian didn’t appreciate Thompson discussing it at True’s birthday. 

“I don’t need at my daughter’s birthday party for any of this to be a discussion,” she said. 

And who can really blame her? A child’s birthday is not the time to bring up family arguments. The rest of her family tried to comfort her, but Kardashian wasn’t having it. 

“I know everyone’s intention is to help and be protective,” she said. “But at True’s birthday party, it’s not the right timing.”

After this, we wonder if Thompson will get an invite to True’s party next year? Hopefully, by then, they will have worked things out so it’s not so raw, but we won’t know for sure until next year.
