In this week’s news that we probably could’ve seen coming: Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have reportedly broken up. According to TMZ, the two parted ways after last month’s allegations that Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloé – with whom he shares three-year-old daughter, True – with a model called Sydney Chase.
If you recall, last month’s cheating allegations were pretty dramatic. Tristan denied the allegations and lawyers became involved, with Tristan’s lawyer serving cease-and-desist letters and Sydney refusing to back down; instead hiring high-profile attorney Gloria Allred. I’m sorry to be insensitive, but will there be a movie version of all of this and when is it coming out? (I will play Gloria.)
Anyway, apparently Tristan is still refuting the cheating claims, though apparently conceded that the break-up happened after the whole shebang went public.
This isn’t the first (or even second) time that Tristan has allegedly cheated on Khloé with another woman. We all can recall his tryst with Jordyn Woods (then Kylie Jenner’s best friend) back in 2019. What’s more, in the recent Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion special, Khloé says she has since forgiven Jordan. "I forgive Jordyn, or else I would be a prisoner in my life," she said. "I have to forgive these people for me. And it's up to them to forgive themselves and to be accountable and learn."
Kylie Jenner also admitted in the special that she was no longer friends with Jordyn, either, but that they had spoken about the situation. “When we were friends, we never thought that we wouldn't be friends. It was kind of an overnight thing, and, you know, when she did something to my family, it felt like she did something to me,” she explained.
Tristan and Khloé are apparently still in touch and committed to co-parenting their daughter True.
What a week, right? Oh. It’s Tuesday.
