Khloé Kardashian’s Reported Response to Tristan Thompson’s Birthday Tribute Was Not Thrilled

Happy Birthday Khloé Kardashian! 

On June 27, the Good American designer turned 35, prompting an outpouring of sweet and celebratory birthday posts. But it was her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, who arguably posted the most emotional message.

He took to Instagram to wish the mother of his child a happy birthday with a message that may touch your heart. But according to a new report, it didn’t do anything for the reality star. A source told People that Kardashian “didn’t really get why he posted it.” Yikes.

Tristan Thompson’s birthday tribute to Khloé Kardashian was over the top

If you haven’t seen the Instagram post, it’s probably the most over-the-top thing you’ll ever see. The NBA star posted a photo of Kardashian with their 1-year-old daughter True alongside a lengthy birthday tribute in which he called Kardashian “the most beautiful human.”

“Happy birthday @khloekardashian,” he wrote. “You are the most beautiful human I have ever met inside and out. Thank you for being an amazing mommy to our princess True. She is blessed to have someone like you to look up to. I wish you nothing but more success and sending you positive blessing your way. Enjoy your day Koko.”

Khloé Kardashian reportedly wasn’t impressed by Tristan Thompson’s birthday tribute

According to a People source, Kardashian was actually kinda confused by the post. “They have a child together, but are not together,” the source said. “Her family thinks he posted it because he wants to make himself look good. Tristan and Khloé co-parent True, but that’s it.”

Khloé Kardashian’s birthday came amid a tense time

The reality star’s birthday comes amid Thompson’s latest cheating scandal, which is currently playing out on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Back in February, Thompson kissed family friend Jordyn Woods at a party — less than a year after he allegedly cheated on Kardashian days before she gave birth to their daughter in April 2018.

Shortly after the news broke, Kardashian tweeted that the scandal “broke up” her family.

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are working on their relationship, according to reports

So, the birthday post may have made things a little awkward, but aside from that, it appears that Kardashian and Thompson are on good terms.

In June 2019, a source told Us Weekly that the reality star “has moved past all of her drama with him” and is solely focused on the well-being of their daughter.

“They are still co-parenting and she doesn’t have ill will towards Tristan. Khloé is so happy with True it’s like nothing else matters,” the insider continued.

While the two seemingly are in a good place, an insider stressed that their romantic relationship is totally donezo. “She would never go back with Tristan,” added the source. “She knows that he will never change.”

On the bright side, at least these two are acting like adults and forging a friendly relationship for the sake of their daughter. Maybe Thompson should make his birthday tributes a little more private next time, though. Just saying.
