Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Are Reportedly Talking More and Trying to ‘Make Things Work’

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have a rollercoaster relationship. They began a romance in late 2016 after meeting earlier in the year through a mutual friend. They experienced many hiccups in their relationship before having a baby in 2018 — and broke up for good the following year.

But after some time apart, it appears that the pair is considering getting back together. A new report says that Kardashian and Thompson have been talking more and want to “try to make things work.”

Why did Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson break up?

Kardashian dumped Thompson after she learned he’d allegedly cheated on her with her family friend Jordyn Woods at a party in February 2019. Woods has denied having sexual contact with Thompson but admitted on Red Table Talk in March that he “kissed” her.

It was the second time Thompson had allegedly been unfaithful to Kardashian during their relationship. The NBA star was also caught entertaining other women in videos obtained by TMZ and The Daily Mail just days before Kardashian gave birth to their daughter, True Thompson, on April 12, 2018.

After the second incident, Kardashian claimed that she was done with Thompson and only stayed in contact with him for the sake of their daughter. They reportedly worked out a custody agreement that allowed them equal time with True and only came together for family events.

Tristan Thompson has tried really hard to win Khloé Kardashian back

In the months since his cheating scandal, Thompson has made many attempts to win Kardashian back. He’s tried everything from sending her flowers to bombarding her with romantic texts.

“Tristan thinks people are disposable—if he sends me enough flowers or enough text messages, I’m going to come around,” Kardashian said on the premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 17, which aired in September 2019. She added: “All Tristan does is send countless amounts of flowers, calls, texts, and I just haven’t been ready to talk to him because I feel like it’s going to turn into a screaming match and I don’t care to scream.”

But Thompson didn’t let up. In fact, he only upped his attempts. He went on to leave a string of flirty comments on Kardashian’s social media accounts and publicly professed his love for her.

Reports say Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson could be on the verge of getting back together

On Jan. 25, a source told HollywoodLife that Kardashian and Thompson’s relationship has been “improving” and that they’re getting back “on track.”

“Khloé and Tristan are taking things extremely slow and just talking more,” the source continued. “They are not at all back together, but are taking small steps to see if they can get there. They are not trying for a baby at all right now. Everything they’re doing is at an extremely slow pace. They’re talking and communicating a lot more and often. It seems they’d both like to try to make things work.”

As for what allegedly made Kardashian change her mind and consider getting back together? The source explained:

“What changed for Khloe 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 her own. 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.”
