Why was Tristan Thompson’s face blurred on KUWTK?

Last night’s KUWTK touched on Kardashian and Thompson’s relationship and his cheating ways — so when he appeared in the episode blurred out, fans wondered what was up.

The timeline of the episode is pre-Thompson cheating on Kardashian with Jordyn Woods, as Kardashian and her friend, Malika Haqq, go to Cleveland with True to visit Thompson. Photos of the couple showed Thompson’s face blurred out, as did a clip of Kardashian taking a video of Thompson and True.

Fans ask — and Kardashian is curious too

Fans hopped on Twitter to get to the bottom of the mystery, asking Kardashian what was up with concealing Thompson’s face… and she was confused as well.

One viewer asked: “.@khloekardashian why’s Tristan’s face blurred out in all the pics??! #KUWTK.”

Kardashian responded: “Wait? It is!?!?? I did not even notice that. I don’t know #KUWTK well, you obviously know who it is LOL so I don’t know what the point of that is. I’ll find out.”

Some fans thought it was shade towards Thompson for cheating on Kardashian, but another person brought up “isn’t there a paper you have to sign in order to be shown on the show? maybe it’s that??”

Kardashian cleared things up that it wasn’t her doing, tweeting: “We obviously didn’t do anything. He might not have signed a waiver to show those images. Why would I want to blur his face? I’m not hiding his identity LOL #KUWTK.”

Kardashian opened up about Thompson

During the episode, Kardashian opened up about the first cheating scandal with Thompson, as he had been unfaithful during her pregnancy. She talked about how the infidelity impacted her trust in Thompson and his cheating ways “demolished” their relationship.

Kardashian laid her feelings out in a discussion with her best friend Malika, sharing, “I’m someone where the energy I have towards True, that’s all that matters to me. If that starts to be affected by me wondering, ‘What’s Tristan doing? Where is he?’ — I will be out in two f** king seconds. Nothing is worth that for me.”

When Haqq asked, “Are you still in love?,” Kardashian noted, “I am in love. I know I love him. But still, I’m not going to act like nothing’s wrong.”

She also explained telling Thompson, “Your one stupid weekend or whatever you did, look what it did to three years of a relationship. It just demolished it. So was that worth it for you?’”

Kardashian added: “I’ve always been someone who’s like, ‘Don’t sit in your sorrow. It is what it is, so let’s just face the facts and move on.”
