As the final days of her pregnancy played out this week, Khloé Kardashian no doubt hoped to finalise the birth plan with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson, finalising the coverage plan with mama Kris, getting reassurance that everything would be fine (it was! Khloé gave birth today!) and, you know, just being all sorts of loved-up and emotional. Instead, or at least as well as, she and Tristan will have likely had to have been having some #realtalk about the stories that broke earlier this week confirming that he’d been cheating on her while she was pregnant — multiple times.
And according to a ‘Kardashian family source,’ People magazine has details on how Tristan might have tried to talk his way out of that deep, deep hole he’d
motorboated dug himself into. He told her he was set up, apparently! Can you even believe it?! At least go with the evil-twin excuse, really.
‘Everyone wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt,’ the source told People — hoping that Tristan had been targeted in a sting operation, basically: ‘Khloé and frankly everyone else wanted to believe that… The girl in the club totally threw herself at him, made sure it was caught on tape, tipped off [photographers] to catch her going into the hotel’ and so on. This is specific to the first set of photos and video showing his hook-up in New York this past weekend of course, because good luck explaining away that video TMZ sourced from the hookah lounge in Washington DC.
And that is the line Tristan stuck to when explaining away the first set of allegations. ‘I think [that’s] what Tristan has been telling her: ‘Babe, you know how groupies are,‘ the source continued, ‘you know how they try to hang on me and follow me around and this isn’t what it looks like.’
Except then the second story chronicling more cheating broke, and it turned out that it was what it looked like! (For those in the back, that’s cheating.)
And while People is reporting on the one hand that Khloé plans to move back to Calabalas basically ASAP (she had previously intended to raise her and Tristan’s baby girl together in Cleveland), she might not break up with him entirely: ‘She’s a hopeless romantic and she’ll try to make this work,’ that good ol’ family source noted, presumably with a resigned sigh. All the best with that, Khloé.
