What Is Khloe Kardashian’s Parenting Style Now That Tristan Thompson Is Gone So Much?

Khloe Kardashian has gone through a lot in the past year, but one constant in her life has been her baby daughter, True Thompson.

She frequently shares snapshots of her little one on social media and has no problem talking about how much being a mother has changed her life. Although she is frequently shamed online (just like her famous sisters), it does truly seem as though Khloe Kardashian is a loving, devoted mother.

Kardashian co-parents with her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, and many fans wonder how she is able to be so successful in raising her child with Thompson’s busy NBA schedule.

Why did Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson split up?

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were first spotted together in the summer of 2016, and things developed pretty quickly after that. Kardashian had just gotten out of a long-term relationship with another basketball star, Lamar Odom, and seemed ready to settle down with a good, reliable man.

Kardashian and Thompson started “officially” dating in late 2016 and were seen everywhere from luxurious overseas vacations to fun nights out with family and friends. The two gushed about each other on social media, and from the looks of things, Kardashian, who had been unlucky in love thus far, had found her perfect match.

In December 2017, the pair announced that they were expecting their first child. However, the happy time turned sour when Thompson was seen flirting and embracing other women only days before Kardashian went into labor with their daughter.

The cheating scandal didn’t end their relationship, however, and Kardashian seemed determined to make things work for the sake of their child.

Still, following a second cheating revelation in early 2019 (this time with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods), Kardashian and Thompson ended things for good.

Khloe Kardashian is a very hands-on mother


Kardashian and Thompson were never married, so exact custody arrangements were likely all settled between the pair in private following their split. Thompson has kept a low profile on social media, but his playing schedule with the Cleveland Cavaliers ensures that he stays busy with travel for most of the year.

Khloe Kardashian has emerged as the primary caregiver to baby True Thompson, and that seems to be just fine with her.

A recent news story claims that even though Kardashian stays quite busy herself, what with filming her reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and managing her denim line, she adjusts her schedule so that she always has time for her daughter.

The report features a source who states that since Thompson isn’t around a lot, Kardashian tries to make sure that she sees True daily and that the two have a tight, unbreakable bond.

Kardashian still wants Thompson involved with their daughter

Even with handling the lion’s share of parenting responsibilities, Kardashian claims to hold no ill will towards the father of her child. Recently, she spoke out and said that she still believes that Thompson is a “great person,” and that she wants him to be involved in their daughter’s life. Kardashian says that she believes strongly in the power of energy and that she doesn’t want any negative energy around baby True.

She even invited Thompson to the extravagant first birthday party that she threw for their daughter because she wants her to be able to look back on those memories and to remember it as a “happy, heavenly place.”

While Kardashian has posted some vague hints on social media that she could be ready for love again, at this point, she doesn’t seem to be dating anyone. For now, she is focused on life with her businesses and her adorable daughter.
