The Real Reason Why Khloe Kardashian Forgave Tristan Thompson

Just a few weeks after Tristan Thompson’s alleged cheating scandal broke, Khloe Kardashian decided to forgive the NBA player. But the fact that the reality star is ready to move forward in her life with Thompson hasn’t sat well with her famous family, and some of them have been pretty vocal about the subject.

Here’s more on exactly why Kardashian decided to forgive her daughter’s father and what her family members think of her decision.

On April 12, Kardashian gave birth to her and Thompson’s first child together. Her family immediately flew to Cleveland for the birth, but returned to Los Angeles without her. The KardJenner clan were hoping their sister would fly home for Mother’s Day but she chose not to — even though Thompson was in Boston for a playoff game against the Celtics.

“Khloe is determined to show that she is happy in Cleveland,” a source told People. “She’s very stubborn when it comes to her life … Khloe’s decision to stay with Tristan has definitely caused friction. Her family hasn’t visited her for weeks.”

Kris Jenner appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and addressed the scandal by talking about how her family reacted by springing “into action with love.”

“We all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland, because that’s what we know to do,” the momager said. “I’m there to support my kids no matter what happens. I just do the best I can, just like anybody else would for their family. There’s a lot of us and we all get together and we do things together and we’re a force to be reckoned with.”

Kim Kardashian also spoke about Thompson’s alleged infidelity on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and her remarks ticked off the Cavaliers star.

“Poor Khloe. Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f**ked up,” the reality star admitted. “We really were rooting for Khloe. 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.”

Following her comments, Thompson blocked her on social media.

On April 15, just days after news of the alleged cheating scandal made headlines, Kardashian’s brother-in-law, Kanye West, had everyone on social media buzzing when he posted about fond memories of Khloe’s ex, Lamar Odom.

“My favorite moment of walking into MSG to play Saint Pablo, I used to go to the hospital and play Lamar the album when he was learning to walk and talk again,” the rapper tweeted. “Then we walked into the arena together.”

Fans assumed that the “Famous” artist was shading Thompson and applauded him for doing so.

No matter what her family’s feelings are, Kardashian made the decision to forgive Thompson and many people are wondering why she chose to do so.

Sources told Us Weekly that when they talked about it Thompson “literally broke down crying” and told her that he was “relieved that it had come out and that he thinks subconsciously he wanted to get caught.” She then decided to give him another shot — and the reason is for their daughter’s sake.

“Khloe has given Tristan another chance at their relationship, and is trying to put the pieces back together for the sake of True,” an insider said according to E! News. “Although she is crushed by the scandal, Khloe desperately wants things to work and wants to have a complete family.”

Another source added that, “She never envisioned herself as a single mother. She wants the whole package and she isn’t going to let Tristan’s behavior ruin her lifetime dream.”

Even though Khloe decided to stay with Thompson, someone in the Kardashian clan who isn’t as forgiving is Rob Kardashian. He’s reportedly “furious” at the Cavs star for embarrassing his older sister and can’t let what did go.

Sources close to Rob told TMZ that he has no plans to forgive Thompson and that he thinks he’s an “a**hole” and is still hoping his sis finally decides to leave him and move on.

Thompson has apparently offered an excuse for his infidelity that he would like Rob or at least some of his baby mama’s other family members to believe.

Sources said his explanation is that “He felt pressure to not refuse [women] because it’s the unspoken rule in the NBA that players hook-up with groupies on the road.”
