Why Did Tristan Thompson Cheat on Khloe Kardashian? His Father Explains Why

Back in April 2018, the Kardashian/Jenner clan were elated when a new family member, True Thompson, was born. We know Khloe Kardashian had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of her first child for months — but it wasn’t always an easy road. While she was over the moon with her relationship with NBA star Tristan Thompson for awhile, her world came crashing down when photos and video footage of Tristan cheating on her were leaked to the media.

So, why would Tristan Thompson cheat on someone as giving and loyal as Khloe, especially when she was pregnant with his child at the time? It seems Tristan’s father has some insight.

It all began with a published video released weeks before Khloe was set to give birth

Tristan’s cheating scandal was certainly horrible for Khloe to deal with, but the timing of the videos also didn’t help. Cosmopolitan notes Daily Mail Online released a video on April 10 that seemed to show Tristan kissing another woman. And it didn’t stop there, as later that same day, TMZ released information claiming Tristan took the woman he was kissing back to his hotel room, where she eventually left with her overnight bag in tow.

To make matters worse, another video released by TMZ showed Tristan with a woman dating back to October 2017 — which would have made Khloe three months pregnant at the time. As one source told People, “Tristan has been constantly cheating on Khloe. He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”

Tristan’s father said his son’s lack of communication with him led to the cheating

So, why would Tristan possibly cause such heartbreak for Khloe? According to Radar Online, his father, Trevor, had some insights to share — and he even claimed he had enough dirty laundry on his son that he could write an entire book about it. “I have a big, big story about what happened,” Trevor claimed.

As for what that “big story” entails, Trevor told OK! Magazine that the lack of communication with his son was a big reason as to why Tristan resorted to cheating. As Trevor said, “Tristan needs to communicate with his father so he can be a better person to me and to others. If Tristan was communicating with me, these problems would not happen. Mothers can’t get through to the son the way the father would be able to.” We’re not sure what sort of falling out Tristan had with his father, but perhaps his dad’s message could serve as a wake-up call for the NBA player.

Are Khloe and Tristan still together now?

Khloe fans are left wondering: Has Tristan changed his ways? While reports originally stated Khloe was in the midst of an emotional breakdown right after having True, it seems she may be giving him a second chance to redeem himself. There’s no doubt Khloe really loves Tristan and would for their little family to work. She’s also mentioned in the past that he’s a fantastic father to True.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Khloe’s in a really good place currently and falling back in love with her daughter’s father, too. As one source told the publication, “Her relationship with Tristan is so good. They made it through some really dark times, but she’s happy that she gave him a second chance because he’s stepped up and is not only an amazing father to True, but he’s been such a rock for Khloe.” The source continued by reminding us, “They’re really just so in love.”

We’re hoping the two of them are truly working things out for themselves and their daughter, but we’ll have to wait and see if Tristan has really changed his ways.
