Khloe Kardashian has been through a lot in recent weeks with news of the cheating scandal involving her now ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson and her sister Kylie Jenner’s former BFF Jordyn Woods.

Khloe Kardashian initially blamed Woods

As the whole cheating drama unfolded, Woods shared her side of the story with Jade Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk. She told Pinkett Smith: “It was like a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out. Nothing. But I don’t think that he’s wrong either, because I allowed myself to be in that position. And when alcohol’s involved, people make dumb moves or people get caught up in the moment.”

Kardashian wasn’t pleased with Woods airing the details, initially taking to Twitter to fire off this accusatory tweet: “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”

Kardashian also noted at the time that the cheating wasn’t all on Woods, but explained: “Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well.”

Kardashian explained her ‘rollercoaster of emotions’

Understandably, Kardashian was going through a lot at the time, processing the whole cheating scandal, and doing so very publicly. She tweeted at the time: “This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”

She added: “What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”

Kardashian definitely picked herself up and shifted her focus onto more positive aspects of her life, noting: “I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.”

Is Tristan Thompson a good father?

In a recent Us Weekly article, a source shared that “Khloé is getting extremely upset with Tristan because he isn’t really making any effort to be involved in their daughter True’s life.” The insider noted that “Tristan’s attitude seems to be, ‘I will see True when I see her.’”

A fan directed a tweet at Kardashian in response to the rumor that Thompson was an absentee father, writing: “hunny keep raising your daughter the best way you know how. All she needs is her mom. You’re doing great. Keep ya head up.”

Kardashian was thankful for the support, but also shot down the rumors about Thompson, noting: “Thank you love! You’re so very sweet. But he is a good dad to her. My sweet and special baby True will NEVER be put in the middle of him and I. I can promise that.”

When asked how she’s been doing, Kardashian gave fans the following update: “It’s been tough but my baby girl has got me through. It will be a journey but I’ll be ok. I promise you.”
