‘KUWTK’: Some Fans Think Tristan Only Appears on the Show for the Exposure

Tristan Thompson has caused a lot of pain and heartbreak for the Kardashian Jenner family. Just days before Khloé Kardashian gave birth to Tristan’s daughter True Thompson, she found out he had cheated on her with Jordyn Woods. The much younger woman was best friends with Kylie Jenner, Khloe’s half sister. 

It’s not just Khloé who faced heartbreak after Tristan cheated. Kylie lost her best friend. Fans were disgusted with Tristan’s behavior, although he didn’t have many supporters to begin with. 

Now, Khloé and Tristan are co-parenting True. But some fans think the NBA player is only playing a good parent on TV. They think that Tristan only spends time with True and Khloe to get on the show

On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloé debates whether or not to send True to Cleveland, where Tristan lives, for a visit. 

Based on the discussion about this episode on reddit, fans are over Tristan. They think he gaslights Khloé. They’re pretty sure she is back with him, even after everything he put her through. Seriously, fans could not be more disgusted by Tristan and the way he’s using his baby to get on TV.

Tristan was a notorious womanizer even before he got together with Khloé.

Fans think he wants to be on KUWTK so that he can get more attention when he’s at the club. As one fan on Reddit put it, “He’s using True to get back in Khloe’s life for clout so he gets more girls next time he goes to the hookah bar. It’s the douchebag cycle.”

There’s a good reason why fans think that Tristan is only using True for publicity. He has another child who he pays far less attention to.

In fact, Tristan’s ex was pregnant when he broke up with her and started dating Khloé. His son Prince was born shortly after. As fans point out, he demands time with True, but doesn’t seem to care as much about Prince. 

Even though Tristan is active on Instagram, most of the pictures he posts of his kids feature True. If he does post photos of his son, they’re rarely ones he himself took. He’ll repost pictures Prince’s mom took, or even ones Khloe took.

Khloé has brought True to meet her half brother. Family is extremely important to her, which may be why she’s trying so hard to co-parent with Tristan. But fans don’t think it’s worth it.

Fans think Khloé is trying too hard to involve Tristan in True’s life. She’s even talking about having another child with him, although she insists they are not back together. 

Khloé wants True to have a full-blooded sibling, so she’s said she’ll ask Tristan to be a sperm donor when she’s ready for another baby. It’s interesting that she feels so strongly about giving True a biological sibling.

Khloé has two full-blooded sisters and one brother, plus two half sisters. Does her insistence that True and any future child share both parents reveal something about her feelings for Kendall and Kylie? 

It could be that she doesn’t feel as close to Kylie and Kendall, and that’s why she wants True’s sibling to be “full” blooded.

Even though Khloe has never said so publicly, the KarJenners have been weird about siblings in the past. Kendall said her makeup collaboration with Kylie would be better than collaborations with the Kardashian sisters since she and Kylie are full-blooded sisters. One thing is certain. Fans don’t think giving True a full-blooded sibling is worth putting up with Tristan.
