Khloe Kardashian Claps Back At Claims That She Was The Other Woman
It seems that the Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson saga is a never-ending one. Kardashian found herself trending in the news again when she decided to speak out against long-standing rumors that she was the other woman in Thompson’s previous relationship with the mother of his first child. Though the reason for speaking out now (after months of speculation) is unclear, Kardashian shared her side of things via her Instagram story Tuesday evening.
Baby mama drama
Though there were rumors that Thompson cheated on his ex with Kardashian at the beginning of their relationship, fans and non-fans alike seemed to be unconcerned with that detail until the Jordyn Woods drama erupted. When Kardashian cited Woods as the sole reason her family broke up (she and Thompson share a daughter, True), thousands of people were quick to remind the reality star that she was guilty of the very same thing.
Fans also quickly pointed out the stark age difference between Woods, 21, and Kardashian, 34. Many felt that while Woods still had a childlike mentality and may have just made a poor judgment call, they believed the Good American owner knew exactly what she was doing.
Khloe speaks out
But despite the rumors slowly fading into oblivion, it seems Kardashian couldn’t let sleeping dogs lie. Months after the scandal with Woods, she finally publicly addressed rumors that she was the other woman who Tristan was cheating on his former girlfriend with.
“I’m disappointed that I even feel the need to post this but…I need to say my truth. Take it as you will” the 38-year old wrote with a dramatic, black background. “My TRUTH IS: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me. A mutual friend set us up. After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant. Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship” she said.
Tristan to blame
Kardashian then proceeded to say that Thompson went to drastic measures to ensure her that he had no romantic ties to his former girlfriend. “He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle. He showed me physical proof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyer to prove his point. His best friends, business associates, and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met.” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wrote.
She went on to place the blame on Thompson, where the majority of it should have always been. “This is my truth! The truth that I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would do something like this!” she said.
Kardashian then went on to express her uncertainty with the entire situation. “I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don’t know what to believe. Truthfully from the deepest parts of my soul, I am sorry! I’m sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is MY TRUTH” she declared.
More to come
This drawn out statement seems a little out the blue, but if it is true (no pun intended) we can understand why Kardashian would want to defend her character. On the other hand, such a long, detailed, statement reminds us a bit of that famous Shakespeare line “the lady doth protest too much, methinks.” Hopefully, this is the final nail in the coffin of what has been a ridiculously long saga, but knowing the Kardashians, there’s always more drama to come.
