It’s been 18 days since Khloé Kardashian gave birth to daughter True Thompson and 20 days since allegations against her boyfriend Tristan Thompson came to light. Allegedly, the NBA star cheated on Kardashian repeatedly during her pregnancy. Ugh. In the aftermath of everything, the Kardashian family has mostly stayed mum about the situation, including Kardashian herself — who People reported has “made no decisions” on her future with Thompson. A source said she’s “delaying that conversation until she’s ready.”
Now, at least one member of the Kardashian clan is breaking her silence. In a clip posted to TMZ on Friday, Kim Kardashian West spoke candidly to Ellen DeGeneres about the situation with Thompson and her sister.
“Like, I don’t even know how to describe it other than it’s just so fucked up,” she described to DeGeneres. “We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best she can. It’s a really sad situation all over. I kind of made this rule with my brother: If there’s a baby involved, I’m not going talk — I’m going to keep it cute and keep it classy and not talk too bad on [the parent] — I’m going to try not to say anything too negative because one day, True is going to see this, and it’s just, you know, so messed up.”
Kardashian West kept to her word in terms of what she’s saying publicly. But as of today, she’s officially unfollowed Thompson on Instagram according to Elle. The outlet shared screenshots of Kardashian West’s Instagram, which show that although she was still following Thompson on April 11, one day after the cheating scandal broke and one day before True Thompson was born, that is no longer the case.
We don’t know when she hit that unfollow button, but we do know this: Thompson’s first Instagram post since the scandal broke — and since his daughter was born — was about his NBA team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. On Sunday, he shared a photo of himself with the caption, “WHAT AN ATMOSPHERE IN THE Q!! GREAT WIN #OnToTheNextOne.” It’s not exactly sinister, but it’s also not the kind of move Thompson should be making if he wants to put on a good face or try to keep things amicable.
This entire cheating scandal has made one thing crystal clear: the Kardashians never stop looking out for and defending their own. Buckle up, Thompson. This is going to be a bumpy ride.
