Why Some Kardashian Fans Think Khloé and Tristan Thompson Aren’t Really ‘Over’ Yet

The Kardashians have had more than their fair share of dramatic relationships, and most of them have played out for the whole world to see. Even Kim Kardashian, whose long and successful marriage with Kanye West is held up as the most stable of the sisters’ relationships, has a past filled with ups and downs in her love life. 

The Kardashian sisters can’t seem to escape the drama even after the relationships come to an end, and that’s certainly the case for Khloe Kardashian and her ex Tristan Thompson. Fans have fresh speculation that the pair are well on their way to a reconciliation, and that might mean we’re in store for even more dramatic headlines in the near future.

Kardashian and Thompson first met on a blind date set up by Kardashian’s friend Brandon Jennings. The pair had dinner at the Bel-Air hotel in August of 2016, and they were photographed on vacation together in Mexico just a month later. In the same month, they publicly went out together to Flo Rida’s birthday party in Miami, making their relationship media official. 

Thompson, a basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, enticed Kardashian to spend a lot of time traveling to Ohio to be with him. The dramatic undertones of their relationship heated up as Thompson’s ex-girlfriend gave birth to his son in December 2016.

However, Kardashian and Thompson each took to separate social media accounts to post photos of them together for the holidays, sending a clear signal that they were weathering any storm caused by the new arrival. 

Over the course of the following months, the relationship became more and more serious. Thompson appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, met the family, and became the subject of Kardashian’s gushing interviews about the strength of their relationship. In December of 2017, Kardashian announced she was pregnant.

Things seemed to be going well following the pregnancy announcement, but then the relationship took a turn. Thompson was the subject of serious cheating allegations backed up by TMZ-acquired footage of him kissing another woman. The news broke just days before Thompson stood by Kardashian’s side as she gave birth to their daughter True. 

While there were certainly some bumps to work out, the pair seemed to work through the problems following the baby’s arrival. Unfortunately, Thompson landed himself in more trouble when a second cheating scandal broke in February 2019.

This time, the scandal involved Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods. Kardashian and Thompson officially broke up as a result. 

Reunion rumors have swirled ever since

Perhaps because the pair was able to work through cheating allegations the first time, fans have been looking for signs that a reunion is in the works. By the end of 2019, gossip magazines were abuzz with the news that the pair had reunited but were keeping it secret.

Helping to fuel the fire were reports that the other members of the Kardashian family were supportive of a potential reunion because they think it’s important for Thompson to be in his daughter’s life. 

On top of all that, Thompson seemed desperate to make amends and get Kardashian back. Between sending her gifts and signaling that he wanted to work things out, it certainly appeared they might be ready to move forward as a couple. 

Now fans are scouring social media for clues about the current state of their relationship. In a Reddit thread on predictions about the Kardashian family’s upcoming futures, many predicted a reunion for Thompson and Kardashian. “I will bet my left arm that Khloe and Tristan are already back together,” one commenter wrote. 

Another said that reading through the family’s Instagram posts revealed Thompson “liking and commenting thirsty s**t.” The commenter went on to add that Kim Kardashian has been liking Thompson’s post, and it seems unlikely she would do so if her sister wasn’t back on good terms with the athlete. 

Many signs point to a reunion that has either already happened or is in the near future. We’ll have to keep an eye out to see if and when it becomes official.
