The Real Reason Khloe Kardashian Won’t Leave Tristan Thompson

There’s always some level of drama going on with the Kardashian clan — and Khloe Kardashian has been top of mind ever since the birth of her daughter and her multiple relationship scandals. Khloe was dating famous basketball player Tristan Thompson, and the two were set to have their first child together in 2018. Right before baby True was born, however, news hit the media that Tristan was cheating on Khloe during her pregnancy.

Though their relationship has certainly been rocky, Khloe didn’t toss Tristan away after the cheating scandal. Here’s the reason many suspect Khloe will never totally leave Tristan in the dust.

Us Weekly reminds us romance rumors first surrounded Tristan and Khloe back in August 2016. And since then, the couple was seemingly everywhere — and it appeared they were very much in love, too. Khloe even commented that both she and Tristan wanted a number of children in interviews, and by April 2017, she added that she would definitely marry her man if he were to propose. During an interview in 2017, Khloe said, “I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way.”

Things between the two were getting even more serious in December 2017, as that’s when Khloe officially announced her pregnancy. “My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!” she wrote on Instagram. Unfortunately, the happiness didn’t last all the way through her pregnancy, as photo and video evidence of Tristan cheating on Khloe dropped when she was nine months pregnant. Tristan appeared to be kissing and touching other women in the footage, causing Khloe to be “shell-shocked and beside herself” with the news.

Kris Jenner’s friend says Khloe still feels very connected to Tristan

This isn’t Khloe’s first go-round with cheaters. Back in 2013, Khloe filed for divorce from Lamar Odom after it was revealed that he’d been cheating on her, too. But this time, it wasn’t so easy for Khloe to walk away.

Daily Mail Online reports Kris Jenner’s friend, Lisa Stanley, mentioned why it’s unlikely for Khloe to leave Tristan behind during an interview. Lisa mentioned the star was “never planning on leaving him” because “she has a child now, and she feels very connected to [Tristan] in that way.” Not only that, but Khloe was madly in love with Tristan, which makes things even more complicated. “She clearly loves the man,” Lisa said.

It was also revealed that Tristan and Khloe were in couples therapy a few months after the birth of their daughter. And though Stanley notes the couple may be working hard to repair things, a trip down the aisle would be highly unlikely.

Insiders have claimed Khloe doesn’t want to be alone

Aside from her attachment to Tristan, there may be other reasons for Khloe’s inability to step away from the relationship. While baby True is certainly Khloe’s primary concern, an insider told Us Weekly that Khloe wasn’t about to step away from Tristan due to her own insecurities. “She doesn’t want to be alone. She’s scared to raise True by herself. Being a single parent can be so lonely,” the insider said.

The publication also notes that Khloe doesn’t want a similar situation as her sister, Kourtney. Kourtney co-parents with Scott Disick, but their 2015 split made things seriously difficult for their family. As the insider notes, “Scott is involved, but Kourtney is a single parent and Khloé has watched that over the years. She doesn’t want to be the same.”
