Tristan Thompson may have gotten Khloé Kardashian to forgive him for the cheating allegations that rocked their relationship in April, but it doesn’t mean Kardashian is ready to forget just yet. According to Us Weekly, the allegations against Thompson will be addressed on the upcoming 15th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
While Thompson would undoubtedly prefer to put their drama in the past, the fact that Kardashian plans to talk about it on the family’s E! reality series should come as little surprise to fans. Kardashian and the rest of the family are famously candid (bordering on TMI) when the cameras are rolling.
“They always discuss real life things on the show,” a source reportedly close to Kardashian told Us. “They’ve never ignored a topic. It will definitely be brought up, but they don’t know how much. They can film hours about it, but in the end, Khloé is one of the executive producers and will have final say on what actually makes air.”
Another source confirmed that the cheating scandal would indeed be referenced. However, they claim it “won’t be a huge story line.”
“[Thompson] doesn’t understand why it has to be addressed, but Khloé has said if it’s not dealt with on the show, questions will continue to linger. No one has heard from Khloé directly about what she felt or what she has gone through, and she pointed out to Tristan that she won’t do anything to hurt him by briefly discussing the cheating. She has moved on from it,” said the second source.
Since the news broke in April that Thompson had been unfaithful to Kardashian with numerous women while she was pregnant with baby True, the couple has — by all appearances — been focused on rebuilding their relationship.
Despite public criticism of Thompson from her protective family, Kardashian has remained in Cleveland, Ohio, where Thompson plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, with her beleaguered beau and their baby girl. Until now, that is. On Sunday, the pair returned to Los Angeles for the first time since True’s birth.
On Tuesday, Kardashian revealed via a Snapchat Story that perhaps the new parents hit the town a little too hard upon their return. Doing some playful verbal sparring with her trainer, Kardashian joked, “Look who’s back and in business. What do you got to say, Don?’ The fit mama then added, “OK, I’m hungover today, but we’re still going to make this work.”
That hangover likely came courtesy of the club Kardashian and Thompson were spotted at on Monday. But hey, no big, right? New parents definitely need to blow off steam sometimes. Just like they occasionally need to reward their hard work in the gym with a little Mickey D’s — on Tuesday, the couple hit up a McDonald’s drive-thru, where Kardashian ordered (and subsequently noshed on) french fries.
“Khloé and Tristan seem to be in the best place they’ve been since the scandal… Khloé’s super family-focused and wants to keep their family together. The focus is on their newborn daughter. Tristan’s been supportive and helping out when he can,” a source told People, adding that “no one was anticipating” that Thompson would actually return to Los Angeles with Kardashian.
As for how her famous family feels about her boyfriend, Kardashian is reportedly unbothered by the concern Kris Jenner and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has expressed.
Insists People’s source, “Khloé doesn’t seem too concerned [with] how they feel about Tristan. She still thinks she’s making the best choice for her and True. She doesn’t need her family’s approval and will keep doing her thing.”
