Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch and proud momager Kris Jenner offered a sweet shoutout to her birthday “bunny” Khloé Kardashian today, praising her daughter as the “strongest person” she knows.
This comes amid increasing speculation that Kardashian is standing by her man after a cheating scandal that rocked her world — and the world of her new daughter, True. After wishing a happy birthday to her “bunny,” Jenner continued, “…you amaze me every single day. You are truly an angel on earth, my beauty, and I am so proud of you. You bring laughter and love to everyone around you. You lift people up with your positivity and your passion. This year we celebrate you being a new mommy, and all the amazing blessings that brings. To watch you with baby True brings me the greatest joy. I love you to the moon and back!! You deserve the world. #HappyBirthdayKhloe”
Many Kardashian-Jenner fans agree with Mama Jenner that Kardashian deserves the world. They just don’t necessarily believe that Tristan Thompson — baby True’s father — belongs in that world. The NBA player is at the center of a cheating scandal (allegations of which broke just two days before True was born) that suggests he was unfaithful to Kardashian with multiple women throughout her pregnancy. Grrrrr.
Though People reported that Kardashian planned to return to Los Angeles with baby True right after the birth, Kardashian has remained in Cleveland, where Thompson plays for the Cavaliers. The couple appears to be working on repairing their relationship. And that apparently isn’t a decision that Kardashian’s family (or fans) are loving, although an insider told People they “respect her decision.”
“Everyone knows Khloé plans on staying with Tristan, so things have been civil so far,” the source reported. “They still have opinions about Tristan’s bad behavior, of course, but no one wants to upset Khloé.”
Based on her social media, Kardashian is indeed still with Tristan. Instagram user kyliesnapchat posted captured Snapchat video from Kardashian featuring baby True with her much-maligned daddy:
And on Twitter, Kardashian spoke about her decision to stick with Tristan in an exchange with Twitter user @ChicBitchxo:
Not exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.

Kardashian tweeted, “…[Y]ou have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in [difficult] situations.”
Hey, we’re not going to slam Kardashian for her choices, especially not on her birthday. Hopefully, Thompson will show the same class — and the same commitment to their relationship and their baby — that Kardashian has. Otherwise, we expect the internet will become a very unfriendly place for Thompson. So step it up, buddy. The world is watching.
