Kim Kardashian Urged Khloé To Do This 1 Thing After Tristan Thompson’s Cheating Scandal
Khloé Kardashian’s life has been an emotional rollercoaster ride lately. The first-time mother gave birth to her daughter, True Thompson, in April 2018. However, what should have been a happy occasion was marred by her boyfriend and the father of her child’s salacious cheating scandal.
Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson seemed like the right guy for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star. However, once TMZ and other gossip blogs leaked video and photos of Thompson being inappropriate with numerous other women, his true colors were revealed.
Despite everything, Kardashian has been taking everything in stride. She’s decided to stick by Thompson’s side in Cleveland and revel in the birth of her super cute baby. And yet, though the Good American designer seems strong on the outside, we can only guess all of the different feelings she’s been experiencing.
In fact, her older sister, Kim Kardashian West urged her to do this one thing in the wake of the scandal (page 6).
Finding a new normal
- Khloé and Tristan’s relationship has changed
A newborn baby is already a massive adjustment. In addition to caring for True, Kardashian has also had to find a new normal in her relationship with Thompson. Though the statuesque couple has been seen out and about with friends in Ohio, taking a break at the movies, and at a Cavaliers game, everything certainly isn’t peaches and cream between the duo.
A source told People that the couple’s relationship is very different. They revealed, “She has good days and bad days with Tristan. They had a very calm relationship before those videos and pictures were released. Now their relationship has changed.”

Desperate to make it work
- It’s hard for Khloé to trust Tristan
It’s no secret that Kardashian’s sisters and mother are no longer fans of the basketball star. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kris Jenner wept for her daughter while Kardashian West turned to anger, she said, “Poor Khloé. Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f—ed up. We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are. She’s so strong, and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation, all over.”
However, at this point, the Revenge Body star isn’t really taking her family’s advice. An insider explained to People, “Of course it’s hard for Khloé to trust Tristan when he goes out of town for games. She knows her family is right when they warned her to not trust him. But she still wants to keep trying to have a great relationship with Tristan again.”

On a tight leash
- The couple is experiencing new conflicts
Since Thompson’s basketball team is the NBA finals, his basketball season has extended drastically. Therefore despite True’s birth, he hasn’t been able to remain home with his new daughter and Kardashian. However, that hasn’t stopped the new mother from putting Thompson on a tight leash.
A source told People, “She thinks it’s up to him to prove himself that he can be a great partner and dad. She’s definitely more needy and in his face now. This has been causing some conflicts.”

Back in the house
- Thompson is trying to show that he can be a great dad
It looks like Kardashian has already allowed Thompson to move back into their home. The reality star wants to be sure that the NBA player bonds with their infant daughter when he’s home.
An insider explained to People, “[Khloé’s] not thrilled with Tristan and what he did, but her new little family is more important. Tristan has been so sweet with True, and that makes Khloé so happy. Khloé seems great. She loves being a mom and can’t stop talking about True. She talks to her sisters several times a day.”

The most vocal of the Kardashian clan
- Kim is completely fed up with the situation
Though she loves her younger sister deeply, Kardashian West is not thrilled about this situation at all, and she has been the most vocal amongst her family in getting Khloé to take off her rose-colored glasses when it comes to Thompson.
An insider told The Cut, “Kim is counting down the days ’til Khloé gets her sh*t together and kicks Tristan to the curb. It’s driving Kim insane that Khloé is still with Tristan because she deserves so much more. But Kim knows that she can’t tell Khloé what to do — she has to make that decision alone.”
Next: A message from a concerned sister
- Kim thinks Khloé has major self-esteem issues
Though she’s not trying to push her sister, Kardashian West is urging Khloé to seek counseling, especially after the rocky several months that she has had.
A Kardashian insider explained to The Cut, “Kim has been trying to convince Khloé to go to “intensive therapy” to help her with her chronically low self-esteem. Until she fixes that issue, she’s going to continue to fall in love with men that aren’t emotionally available and giving.”
Personally, we think therapy is good for everyone.

- Khloé wants people to simply mind their own business
Since news of Thompson’s scandal broke, many people have been weighing in with their two cents. However, the youngest Kardashian sister is done with the unsolicited advice, especially when it comes from people who wouldn’t utilize that advice in their own lives.
In May 2018 she tweeted, “People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being. People these days are focused so much on someone else’s life instead of their own. They love to give advice but are not living the advice that they are offering. Most of the ones giving advice are in no place to give anything at all. Focus on your own world. I’m sure there’s cracks there that need your attention. We all got em.”

Seeing a future
- Khloé thinks no one wants to see her happy
Apparently, Kardashian’s reconciliation with Thompson isn’t temporary; she’s in it for the long haul. A source told People, “Kardashian believes that she and Thompson can figure things out and have a happy life together. Khloé wants to get married eventually, but there are no serious wedding talks yet. She does talk about a future with Tristan, though.”
In a cryptic message on Twitter, Kardashian offered a message on happiness. She tweeted, “Misery loves company… people can’t stand for someone else to flourish and be happy. Nowadays people thrive off ones downfall rather than their success. Sadly.”
Hopefully, the reality star will figure out what’s best for herself and her daughter.
