How Does Khloe Kardashian Really Feel About Tristan Thompson?

The Kardashian sisters are no strangers to romantic drama. The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan has been caught up in quite a few relationship-related scandals. Kendall Jenner was caught out there with Blake Griffin. Kylie Jenner may have ended up on the wrong side of the tracks with Tyga. Even though Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are nailing the co-parenting thing, their relationship went up in flames.

Even Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, despite their a power couple status, havehad their fair share of drama. Khloe Kardashian has also experienced more than her fair share of failures, but the most recent one with Tristan Thompson has been a massive blow-out. One that’s all over tabloids and has even come up in Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Tristan has screwed up quite a few times over the course of their two-year relationship. Despite the indiscretions, the popular reality star did what she could to look past the Cleveland Cavaliers player’s faults. But of course, history is doomed to repeat itself, especially when the perpetrator has no reason to fear the outcome.

Tristan found himself locking lips with Kylie’s BFF, Jordyn Woods. This was bigger than any issue that happened in the past. This time around, Tristan got involved with someone Khloe considered family. It was a betrayal on not just one, but two fronts.  

How has Khloe Kardashian been handling the Tristan breakup?

Khloe is understandably heartbroken but she’s doing her best to take the high road. She even invited Tristan to little True’s most recent birthday party, a move that shocked fans around the globe. While it might be a while before she fully gets over her baby’s daddy, she’s still willing to play nice. Things would probably be very different if it wasn’t for True though.

Khloe admitted that she wanted to create a healthy and peaceful space for her child. One where “heavy energy” wasn’t present. While it sounds a bit spiritual, Khloe is positive that True can read the negative vibes between her and her ex-hubby. The only way to handle that is to work through the pain. She’s also dead set on creating great family memories for her daughter, ones that she can look back on when she’s older. 

“She feels energy, and I’m a big believer of that. So, I do everything in my power to not put any sort of heavy energy around her. Maybe that sounds a little too bohemian for some people.” – Khloe Kardashian 

Khloe Kardashian still considers Tristan Thompson a great person

It’s one thing to put problems aside to let your child’s cheating father into their life, it’s another to still consider them a good person. Despite what Tristan did to Khloe, she still feels that he cares deeply for their daughter. So while their feelings may still be full of awkwardness, she knows it’s worth having him around.

While speaking with Laura Wasser on the Divorce Sucks! podcast, she shared these words about Tristan: “I know her dad is a great person, and I know how much he loves her and cares about her, so I want him to be there.”

Perhaps she’s able to handle the heat because she comes from a “broken home.” She understands the toll it can take on a child because she lived the experience. That’s probably why she’s able to look past the NBA player’s faults to see the good parts of him. She has to, for the light of her life — True.
