Why It Makes Sense for Khloe Kardashian to Take the High Road With Tristan Thompson

Khloe Kardashian seems determined to put her daughter first, even through times of great personal heartache for her. Following her breakup with Tristan Thompson, the father of her baby daughter True Thompson, many fans expected Khloe Kardashian to lash out publicly at Thompson.

The NBA player has humiliated Kardashian several times over the course of their relationship, the first time when she was only days away from giving birth. However, in the weeks that followed her breakup with Thompson, Kardashian has proven consistently that she’s taking the high road.

Tristan Thompson wasn’t the first relationship of Khloe Kardashian’s to have gone astray in a big way. In 2009, she married Lamar Odom after a whirlwind romance of only a few days.

The basketball star and the brash Kardashian sister seemed to have the picture-perfect relationship, until she filed for divorce in 2013, shocking many fans. Over the years, it would be revealed that during their marriage, Odom had cheated on Kardashian multiple times. In spite of Kardashian’s pain and disappointment, she stuck by Odom during the darkest days of his drug and alcohol addiction.

Even after they were no longer a couple, Kardashian was still loyal to him and refrained from bashing him on social media or saying anything negative about him. 

Khloe meets Tristan

When she met Tristan Thompson in 2016, fans hoped she had found the fairytale romance that she longed for. For a time, they seemed as happy as could be. The couple announced their pregnancy in late 2017, and Kardashian’s Instagram page was full of loving snapshots of her and Thompson, preparing to meet their baby girl.

When video footage emerged of Thompson allegedly cheating on Kardashian with multiple women, the shock of the situation seemed to be enough to send Kardashian into labor. She gave birth to baby True Thompson in the midst of a storm of drama and tabloid outrage.

Kardashian and Thompson decided to try and work things out, following the birth of their daughter in April 2018. However, the tranquility wasn’t to last. After the news of Thompson’s infidelity with Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods hit the headlines, the plug on Kardashian and Thompson’s relationship was pulled.

The exact date of their breakup is in question – some fans believe they broke up immediately following the news going public, while others maintain that it was in the days prior to the news making headlines. While it seems there’s no real chance of them ever getting back together, Kardashian is all about putting her daughter first.

Khloe knows about blended families

Kardashian has raised a few eyebrows due to her habit of posting pictures of her daughter surrounded by luxurious accessories, but there seems little doubt that she intends for her baby to be raised in the happiest environment possible. Kardashian, a product of a blended family herself, likely realizes that when there is strife between parents, the children usually suffer.

Via social media, Kardashian has even defended Thompson’s parenting, after rumors of him being a less than attentive father started circulating. Khloe Kardashian responded to a fan who stated that “all (True) needs is her mom,” with a sweet tweet that stated Thompson was a good father, and that baby True would never be caught in between her parents. 

No matter what comes next for these famous exes, and how Khloe Kardashian’s story ultimately unfolds, she has stated that going through all the drama and heartache was well worth it in order to be gifted with her daughter. Hopefully one day, she is able to find a partner that will treat her with the same loyalty and respect that she has treated her past partners with.
