Khloé appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!in November 2016 and talked about her relationship and new routine with Tristan. “I’m [in Cleveland] very often,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told Jimmy. “I actually really do [like being in Cleveland]. I actually really like it. I like just having my routine and being a little more under the radar. It’s nice.”
Tristan and Khloé seemed to spend the holidays together in late 2016. “Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from me and mines, to you and yours,” Tristan captioned a photo of the two of them he shared to Instagram on December 25.
Khloé posted a sweet photo of the couple to her Instagram on January 1, 2017. “Happy New Year!!!” she wrote. “May you always be surrounded by the love you are deserving of! May Gods blessings continue to rain on us all! ❤️”
Khloé celebrated Tristan’s 26th birthday by throwing him a massive party and honoring him on Insta. “To the happiest of birthdays my love!” the reality TV star wrote. “To the first of many more together! May God continue to bless you in all of your days! And may we forever look at one another like this 💋.” Well, that’s a little awkward in hindsight.
Khloé told ES Magazinein April 2017 that she has “never been in this type of love” and that she would marry Tristan if he asked. She added that she “would love to have a family” and that she and Tristan had talked about it. “He [already] is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father. I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘the clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen.”
In June 2017, Tristan threw Khloé a surprise birthday party and shared some photos to Instagram. “Happy bday my love, this picture right here sums up how wild, crazy and how much we love each other,” he wrote on June 27. “Let’s continue to build more memories and cherish them with each other. God bless you, I love you.”
Khloé confirmed on Instagram on December 20, 2017, that she and Tristan were expecting. “My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing,” she wrote.
Everything seemed to be going great between Tristan and Khloé as of Valentine’s Day 2018. “‘When a woman is loved correctly, she becomes ten times the woman she was before’ Thank you my love ❤️,” Khloé wrote on a cute photo of the duo on February 16.
Khloé revealed the baby’s name on Instagram on April 16. “Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” she wrote. “Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!” No mention of the apparent infidelity.
Us Weekly reported that just five months after he was caught cheating on Khloé, the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player was seen getting a little too close with a mystery woman at L.A.’s Warwick nightclub on September 20. “Tristan and a girl were chatting and flirting throughout the night,” an eyewitness told the outlet. “They were very touchy-feely. He had his hand on her butt.”
In mid-February, many of the messages Khloé posted to her Instagram Story made it seem like things might be over between the reality star and the basketball player. One of the messages read, “Sometimes we tend to forget that our current situation does not have to be our destiny.”
That was the day the news broke that Tristan cheated with Kylie’s best friend, Jordyn. Sources confirmed to In Touch, “Tristan and Jordyn were into each other, they were cuddling and holding hands. Tristan was rubbing her ass, they were definitely hooking up,” the insider reveals. “It was surreal. We couldn’t believe it.”
Jordyn finally shared her side of the story while sitting down for an interview on Red Table Talk. She claimed the NBA star tried to kiss her after a night of partying, but said they never had sex. Jordyn also said she wasn’t the reason for his split with Khloé.
Shortly after the tell-all interview, Khloé put Jordyn on blast. “Why are you lying [Jordyn Woods]?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story,” she tweeted. “BTW, you ARE the reason my family broke up!”
The reality star revealed her change of heart the following day. “This has been an awful week and I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I),” she began. “I’m a rollercoaster of emotions and have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me and humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”
Khloé continued, “What’s been harder [and] more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love [and] treat like a little sister,” she explained in a second tweet. “But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”
The mother-of-one later took to Instagram Stories with a message about moving on, sharing a poem by Nikita Gill. “Your mind will keep you up at night, make you cry, destroy you over and over again,” it read. “You need to convince your mind that it has to let go … because your heart already knows how to heal.”
Khloé followed up by posting a heartfelt message about the power of words. “What you say does matter,” she wrote. “Become more aware of the negative things you think and say. What does it actually accomplish by criticizing somebody else? Do you have any concept of how positively it can change someone’s day to receive a compliment or words of encouragement? Try to choose your words wisely.”
The Strong Looks Better Naked author and Tristan are no longer together, but she’s clearly focused on being the best mother to their daughter, True. She posted a new photo of their baby girl captioned, “Future so bright, she gotta wear shades.”
