One big happy family? Kim Kardashian tweeted some surprisingly kind words about Khloé Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson on Sunday, September 8. The tweet came during the season 17 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians where the blonde beauty, 35, revealed that the basketball player tried to kiss her just two months after he allegedly cheated on her with Jordyn Woods.
“Tristan is a really great dad ✨” The 38-year-old wrote, taking a much different tone than her comments about him in the past. After Tristan’s first run-in with infidelity while Khloé was nine months pregnant, Kim was very outspoken about her little sister’s baby daddy. “Like I don’t even know how to describe it besides, it’s just so f–ked up,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in April of 2018.
A source told In Touch that the beef was mutual. “Tristan’s pissed at Kim and really wishes she and the rest of their family will mind their own business and keep his name out of their mouths,” the source said, adding, “He feels Kim’s making it worse for Khloé and True by going on Ellen and who knows who else and talking about their problems.”
Although Khloé and the 27-year-old reconciled that time around, he still hasn’t been forgiven for his second moment of weakness. During Sunday’s episode of KUWTK, Khloé shared that she hadn’t seen the NBA player since he was caught cheating with Kylie Jenner’s former best friend back in February 2019. She added that it might be “too soon” for Tristan to attend their daughter True’s first birthday party, but ultimately decided that including him was the right thing to do.
“I have so many raw emotions toward Tristan. I’m just healing and processing and going through the motions, I guess,” the Good American designer said at the time.
To lessen the tension between them, Khloé had Tristan over the night before the party and said the interaction was “fine.” “At first he texted saying, ‘I’m here,’ and I brought True to the door to answer, and she was so excited, and it was really cute. Then, literally, he was just kind of lingering, so I’m like, ‘Are you going to put her to sleep tonight?’ [But he stayed] with the intention to see me.”
Tristan was clearly trying to woo his way back into the reality star’s good graces, but she wasn’t having any of it. “I one-arm hugged him, but that’s not enough. He tried to kiss me. I’m like, ‘That’s the problem with you. You can’t just take what you get,’” she added, “The next morning he’s like, ‘Thank you for letting me see True. She looked great, and you looked even better.’”
At least it looks like Tristan and Kim and on the mend. That’s one Kardashian down, and many more to go.
