Is Khloé Kardashian Still Single After Receiving A Massive Diamond Ring From Tristan Thompson?
Just when we thought Tristan Thompson was always going to be shunned by the KarJenner family, there has been a drastic turn of events. In a new mid-season trailer of Keeping Up with the Kardashians — Khloé Kardashian receives a massive diamond ring from her daughter’s father.
Normally, this would seem like a romantic gesture, but knowing Thompson and Kardashian’s sordid history — we assumed that this “gift” wouldn’t exactly be welcomed by the Good American founder.
However, Kardashian was very eager to show her gift to her family. Has her relationship with Thompson changed now that he’s purchased her a ring?
Khloé Kardashian has forgiven Tristan Thompson
Kardashian and Thompson’s ill-fated romance crashed and burned almost as quickly as it began. In 2017 — the youngest Kardashian sister began dating the Cleveland Cavaliers player. He was tall, hunky and charismatic. However, he also had some baggage. When Thompson and Kardashian became a couple, the NBA star’s ex-girlfriend was pregnant with his son.
Still, that didn’t deter the reality starlet from continuing the romance and getting pregnant with her daughter, True. Unfortunately, just days before Kardashian gave birth–it was revealed that Thompson had been openly entertaining many many different women.
For the sake of her daughter, Kardashian initially forgave Thompson for his indiscretions. However, he broke her trust again in February 2019 when he kissed family friend, Jordyn Woods.
Though it was painful at the time, and it was the final nail in the coffin of their romance, Kardashian now says she’s forgiven Thompson. On a recent episode of Jay Shetty‘s podcast, On Purpose, Kardashian revealed,
I don’t think he’s a bad person; I think we all make mistakes, we are humans. But it’s only going to hurt me if I’m holding onto this anger and playing this victim role. I don’t believe in being a victim. I believe in ‘Okay this happened to me, let’s figure it out, let’s push through it.
The KarJenners are concerned about Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s close bond
Though Kardashian claims that she no longer has any romantic interest in Thompson — the pair have been spending quite a bit of time together, more than most co-parents would. An insider told Hollywood Life,
Khloe has been spending a fair amount of time with Tristan but it’s not in any way a secret, she isn’t hiding it and she’s pretty open about it. Obviously, people in her life have opinions about it. [Her friends and family] worry she could be playing with fire because Tristan clearly wants her back and the more she spends time with him the more chance there is that he’ll break down her resolve.
Has Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s relationship status changed after the diamond ring?
In the Season 17 KUWTK mid-season trailer, Kardashian receives the diamond ring from Thompson and promptly freaks out. In the clip, she says, “Look what Tristan gave me last night. A pink diamond.” When her brother-in-law, Scott Disick examines the ring, he remarks — “Looks fully like an engagement ring.” Kardashian then replies, “Nope! No!”
From what we know, Khloé hasn’t just jumped back in a relationship with Thompson because he brought her a shiny gift. The reality starlet hopped on Instagram to clear the air with a cryptic quote.
On Oct. 22, she posted several quotes on her Instagram story. One read, “Being single doesn’t necessarily mean you’re available. Sometimes you have to put up a sign that says, ‘Do Not Disturb, God is working’ on your heart.”
The second one said, “The universe gives me everything I want and need. Always has. Always will.” The third read, “A little more kindness, a little less judgment.” Finally, the fourth one stated, ” A lot of things broke my heart by fixed my vision.”
Kardashian and Thompson might not be together at the moment, but these quotes and the NBA player’s constant compliments may be softening the heart of his ex-girlfriend. We just hope that Kardashian makes the best decision for herself and her daughter.
