‘KUWTK’: Fans Are Going to Like Tristan Thompson so Much More Now, Producer Claims
Watching Khloé Kardashian‘s relationship with her daughter’s father, Tristan Thompson has been a rollercoaster, to say the least. The NBA star popped up on the public radar in 2017 when he and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlet began dating. Though little was known about the Cleveland Cavaliers player, he seemed nice enough and it wasn’t long before Kardashian was pregnant with his child.
However, as the Good American star‘s due date approached, all hell broke loose. Several news outlets and tabloids published photos and videos of Thompson getting cozy and super inappropriate with various women going back many months. However, in an effort to keep her new family together amid the birth of her daughter, True, Kardashian forgave Thompson.
Things exploded between the pair once again in February 2019 when Thompson kissed family friend Jordyn Woods at a party. Though Woods was immediately ousted from the family’s inner circle, Thompson has been doing everything in his power to win over Kardashian again.
Inside Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian’s latest drama
Though they’ve been focusing on co-parenting, especially amid dramatic rumors that Kardashian was once again pregnant with Thompson’s child, the NBA star has been unable to escape the drama.
Recently, an Instagram model named Kimberly Alexander came forward to accuse Thompson of fathering her son. Thompson took a DNA test which came back negative, but that didn’t stop Alexander from accusing him and Kardashian of falsifying the results.
This prompted Kardashian and Thompson to sue the model for libel. In a cease and desist letter, their lawyers wrote. “Alexander a wannabe social media influencer and pornographic model/performer who is so desperate to achieve her fifteen minutes of fame that she recently fabricated a false claim that NBA star/Cleveland Cavaliers center/power forward Thompson is the father of her nearly five-year-old son. A reputable, accredited DNA lab approved by her own lawyers has conclusively determined that Thompson is not the father of Alexander’s child. Alexander has persisted in publicly proclaiming that Thompson is her child’s father.”
Khloé Kardashian is thrilled with her parenting relationship with Tristan Thompson
Despite the drama and the recent pregnancy rumors, Kardashian is reportedly thrilled with her relationship with Thompson and the NBA star’s relationship with their daughter.
“Tristan has been playing more and more with True,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “It seems this quarantine has really changed him because he can physically be more present with True and not have to focus on basketball and being on the road so much. True is a total girly girl and loves dolls, playing shopping, and dress up. Khloe loves seeing him laugh and smile with her. He’s changed for the positive, absolutely. He engages with her so much more. He’s grown leaps and bounds as a father since a year ago. The quarantine has done good things for him and his relationship with his daughter.”
