More drama for Khloé Kardashian! Things are not working out for her and Tristan Thompson lately and it doesn’t help that not too long ago he was involved in a major cheating scandal, but now Khloé claims she is done with the basketball player for good.

A source tells In Touch magazine exclusively that “Khloé has known for a long time that it’s over with Tristan.” The source continues, “but she was too afraid to admit it because she didn’t want to face being a single mom and lose the family life she’s always yearned for.”

What is next for the KUWTK star? According to the insider, she wants to stay in LA with daughter True instead of moving back to Cleveland. However, the source says, “Tristan adores his daughter and wants to be near her and has told her he’ll fight for custody if he has to.” The source adds, “He’s on the road so much and spends so much time in Cleveland. Khloé wants True to be permanently based in LA It’s not up for negotiation.” Uh oh, sounds like there could be a custody battle brewing.

However, it looks like the family matriarch, Kris Jenner, won’t let True be without her mama. “She’s told Khloé they’ll hire the best lawyers and spend however much money is necessary to ensure she wins this battle. Kris wants dirt on Tristan so the courts will see he isn’t fit to have joint custody and that True is better off being with Khloé full-time.” Sounds like a pretty intense ultimatum!

Even though Khloé is involved in this mess, she is still enjoying motherhood. “I’ve always been really patient with children and it’s come in handy now that I’m a mommy. I think what surprises me most is no matter how tired you are, you find this energy and patience for your child,” she wrote on her app and website.
