Kanye West Has It Out for Tristan Thompson Following the Cheating Scandal, and This Surprising Tweet Proves It
Kanye West has returned to Twitter — and of course, the superstar has quite a few things on his mind. While his sister-in-law, Khloé Kardashian, had her baby in April, there’s no way we expected Kanye to keep quiet about the cheating scandal that proceeded the birth. And now, he’s clapping back at Tristan Thompson on social media.
Here’s the sneaky way Kanye may have dissed Tristan online (see page 5). And they’re not the only person close to Khloé he mentioned in his recent tweets.
1. Tristan Thompson was caught red-handed cheating on Khloé while she was pregnant
Khloé’s no stranger to being cheated on, unfortunately. But we were all shocked when news broke that Tristan Thompson was seeing another woman throughout Khloé’s pregnancy. Us Weekly reports Tristan was cheating since at least November with one woman in particular, and he was even caught on camera kissing and caressing four others. And this news broke just days before Khloé gave birth to their baby.
Next: Kanye returned to Twitter with a bang.
2. Kanye tweeted in support of Lamar Odom, Khloé’s ex-husband
For Kanye’s return to Twitter, he decided to post a photo of him with Lamar Odom from 2016, Fox News reports. The photo is of the two walking together into Madison Square Garden, and it also marks the first public photo of Lamar after his severe drug overdose that left him nearly dead.
Kanye left a heartfelt message with the posted photo, saying he used to play Lamar his album, Saint Pablo, when he was relearning to walk and talk. And this supportive tweet after the cheating scandal lets us know which ex Kanye certainly favors.
Next: Lamar had serious issues of his own when it came to his relationships.
3. Lamar’s history with substance abuse is well-documented
Lamar was found comatose in a Las Vegas brothel — but his addictions spiraled out of control many years prior. The Huffington Post notes Lamar’s infant died in 2006, and that’s when his drug use really ramped up. “I think subconsciously, you make yourself an addict because of the trauma that you’re going through,” he wrote.
Lamar and Khloé married in 2009, Daily Mail Online reports, and Khloé helped him through his tough recovery process. Unfortunately, by 2016, they were divorced.
Next: Lamar cheated on Khloé, and this is how he feels about the recent reports of Tristan.
4. Lamar sends his condolences to Khloé, even though he cheated on her numerous times
Entertainment Tonight reports Lamar admitted to cheating on Khloé during their marriage. He also says this was his one regret, as it wasn’t “the stand-up thing to do.”
Sources close to Lamar have said that he “genuinely feels bad” for his ex-wife since Tristan’s cheating broke the news. And according to Fox News, Lamar may try to reconnect with Khloé in the future, as sources say he’d even get back together with her if she gave him the chance.

5. Kanye sent out this cryptic tweet that seems to throw shade on Tristan
Kanye showing support for Lamar after news broke about Tristan seemed like a diss in itself — but he didn’t stop there. In true Kanye style, he also posted this strange tweet.
Within the tweet, he wrote about people “working with the existing consciousness” and how they’re jealous and money-hungry compared to those who are more in touch with themselves. He also states these folks believe “the value of money is worth more than the value of time and friends.” Since many suspect Tristan was dating Khloé just for the fame, we think Kanye is pointing right at Tristan with this message.

6. Kanye may have threatened Tristan when the cheating rumors first surfaced
Kanye’s all about the cryptic remarks now, but was he always so indirect? According to Radar Online, all of the Kardashians freaked out at Tristan after the cheating news broke. And one source said, “Kim is livid and not speaking to him and Kanye threatened to kick his a**! … Rob also called him and told him if he does it again he will be sorry.”
Sounds like Kanye (and the rest of the family) has made it clear where they stand with Tristan.

7. Is Khloé dumping Tristan? This purchase might prove she is
There’s no word yet on exactly what Khloé is going to do in the future regarding her relationship with Tristan. But shortly after True’s birth, she purchased roughly $4,000 worth of travel merchandise for her baby, TMZ reports, which we think is a sign she’s planning on leaving Ohio and Tristan ASAP.
On the contrary, New York Daily News reports sources close to Khloé say she’s forgiven Tristan for his wrongdoings already, so perhaps she’s just preparing her baby for a busy life of jet-setting. Only time will tell what the Kardashian chooses.

8. They’re making headway in their relationship
Despite the scandal and all of the fallout from it, the Kardashian and her beau are trying to make things work. According to People, Tristan is living with Khloé and True in their Cleveland home, and they have “good days and bad days.”
“She thinks it’s up to him to prove himself that he can be a great partner and dad,” says the source. “She’s definitely more needy and in his face now. This has been causing some conflicts.”
As for Kanye, he may have changed his tune a bit: On April 27, 2018, he tacked on “Now ima go watch the Cavs” to the end of a tweet, referring to Tristan’s team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Make of that what you will.
