‘KUWTK’: Kim and Khloe Kardashian Can’t Believe the ‘Sick’ Reports After Kim Went to Tristan Thompson’s Basketball Game
Kim Kardashian is finally speaking out about when she went to support Khloe’s ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson at an NBA game. People had the totally wrong idea about it, even reporting at the time that she went to the game to boo him because he cheated on her sister.
Kim went to Tristan’s game
On Jan. 13, Kim and husband Kanye West went to the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game at the Staples Center. She was spotted standing up and yelling, which many believed was the reality star booing Thompson. One Twitter user noted: “Kim Kardashian standing up to heckle Tristan Thompson courtside while he was at the free-throw line during Cavs-Lakers is FULL PETTY.”
At the time, Kim shut it down, denying that she was there to throw shade. She tweeted: “I was there to support him!! And was cheering screaming LETS GO TRISTAN!!!!! I would never go boo anyone. I don’t go to hate, only to cheer!”
Kim and Khloe discuss the crazy gossip
In a new clip for season 18 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim addresses the reports that she booed Thompson at his game.
“How was the game?” Khloe asked her sister.
“It was good,” the Skims founder responded, adding, “I just hated the reports that were like, ‘Kim was booing Tristan.'”
“I was literally up going, ‘Go, Tristan! Woo! Go, Tristan, Go!'” Kim demonstrated. “Like, embarrassing myself and like, Lebron [James] right there and all the Lakers.”
Khloe said she finds the rumors “crazy,” noting, “It’s crazy that this world is that sick that they would think you and your husband would go to a game deliberately with the intent of booing True’s dad.”
She added: “They would much rather believe some nasty, exaggerated bullsh*t than the truth. Yeah, we’re family, we’re supporting him, great, it’s exciting.”
“So bizarre,” Kim added.
Kim invited Thompson to dinner
In a previous clip for KUWTK, Kim explained how she accidentally invited Thompson to dinner. “So I was leaving the Mercer Hotel and then I get a call on my cellphone from Tristan. And he was like, ‘Oh my god! I’m right next door,’” Kim explained to her sister.
She continued, “And he’s like, ‘What are you doing?’ And I was like, ‘I’m gonna go have dinner with my friend.’ So, I was like, ‘Do you wanna come?’”
Khloe was a bit shocked by her sister’s offer, saying, “You invited him to dinner?”
“Kind of,” Kim responded. “But I was just like, ‘Oh my god, what did I do?’ Should I not invite him to dinner?”
Khloe’s reaction was surprising
“I think you gotta do what’s best for you,” Khloe told her sister, adding, “If you want him to have a drink at the end, there’s nothing wrong with that. That’s beyond generous of you.”
Kim further explained why she’s moving forward. “I don’t think what Tristan did was, obviously, right. Like, that’s not my thing and I brutalized him,” the Skims founder shared. “But, I also know that that’s True’s dad and that mom cheated on dad, you know what I mean? And all of their friends forgave mom.”
“I think forgiveness is the best way,” Kim added.
