Co-parenting is always difficult but it becomes a thousand times harder when you’re in the public eye. Such is the case with Khloé Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson. The two have been engaged in a war of words and Instagrams over the last week, part of a continued fallout for Thompson after getting wrapped up in his second cheating scandal in under a year.
Now, an anonymous source speaking exclusively with Hollywood Life is claiming Thompson is upset by Kardashian’s public messages, saying “Tristan is really upset…He’s taking a lot of her messages on Instagram personally.” This just one day after Kardashian posted an image of a quote on her Instagram Story, telling fathers to think about their daughters “dating someone like you.”
It’s hard not to wonder why Thompson is allegedly so affected by a few Instagram posts. Kardashian has been incredibly open about letting the Cleveland Cavaliers star work with her as a parent to their one-year-old daughter, True. She allowed him into the delivery room just two days after his first cheating scandal broke (in April of 2018), has spent holidays in Thompson’s hometown of Cleveland to give him access to his daughter (and was shamed for leaving the baby with her father), and invited him to True’s first birthday party less than two months after his most recent cheating scandal, this time with Kardashian-Jenner family friend, Jordyn Woods.
Fans assumed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star would call him out during the event, but Kardashian remained classy and didn’t say anything to Thompson, though it was pointed out that she didn’t want to take pictures with him. Can you blame her?
Thompson himself isn’t exactly the king of taking the high road, posting a tone-deaf photo of himself on the one-year anniversary of the cheating scandal. Was it intentional or an accident? Either way Kardashian didn’t post anything in response. Just sayin’.
If Thompson is embarrassed by his ex’s cryptic messages, well, he can go cry us a river. For someone who has been in the midst of a highly traumatic series of events, Kardashian has been an ideal example of a mom trying to do right by her daughter. And if she wants to draw strength from some motivational quotes, she certainly has that right.
