Kim Kardashian defends Tristan Thompson friendship despite him cheating on Khloe

The Kardashians Season 4 Official Trailer Hulu

Tristan Thompson is far from everyone’s favourite person in the Kardashians household – but he has a surprise ally in the shape of Khloe Kardashian’s sister, Kim Kardashian. 

In the latest episode of The Kardashians, When Is Being Me Going To Be OK?, Khloe is finding herself struggling with ex-boyfriend Tristan living in her house. 

Khloe – who shares daughter True and son Tatum with Tristan – is trying to move on from their relationship, but took the NBA player and his disabled brother, Amari, into her home after the death of their mother and Tristan’s roof collapsing at the beginning of the year. 

While she thought it would be just a couple of weeks, it’s clear that the strain of living so close to Tristan – and the seemingly endless renovations needed at his home – is beginning to take its toll. 

Most prominently, Khloe has been bombarded with questions about the state of their relationship, with even family members assuming they are going to get back together. 

But while Khloe insists that it’s not the case, and she’s making concerted efforts to make sure she’s clear they will never reunite, sister Kim still feels a close bond with Tristan either way. 

Speaking to the camera, she said: “I know you guys are gonna hate me for this, and you’re gonna hate us. You’re gonna think Khloe’s… whatever.

“It’s so crazy because he’s such a good friend and he’s such a good dad, but he just couldn’t get it together in that area – of like, being a faithful boyfriend.”

“So it’s like, you want to obviously hate him for that,” she continued. “Yeah, of course his actions and who he was is like, so f**ked up. Like, I can’t deny that.

“We’ve had our talks about and we’ve had our fights about it and we’ve had arguments about it, but he’s also shown so many decent things and just has been a really good person and friend.”

Speaking on a more personal level, Kim explained he became a good support during her split from Kanye West, and added: “When he saw me struggling with my kids, he stepped up.

“He started showing up to the games. He picks Saint up, takes him to dinner and will always come to my defence – especially if it’s stuff with like me and my ex – and I just like never forgot that.

“So it’s like I’ll never really throw someone away and act like I don’t feel like they can grow and evolve.” 

Tristan and Khloe have been in an on/off relationship since 2016, and were expecting their first baby together by the end of 2017. 

However, the birth of baby True in April 2018 was overshadowed by evidence Tristan had been cheating on her throughout her pregnancy. 

While they initially tried to work on the relationship, things broke down further when photos of him kissing Kylie Jenner’s friend Jordyn Woods in a nightclub emerged in February 2019. 

Tristan then fought to win Khloe back over a period of months, with the couple co-parenting their daughter at the same time. Eventually, they went public with their romance again, and in 2021 started privately looking for a surrogate to have their second child together. 

However, just days after the surrogacy insemination took place, it was uncovered that Tristan had cheated on Khloe again with personal trainer Maralee Nichols, and she’d got pregnant. 

He initially tried to deny it, demanding a DNA test as evidence, but ultimately had to concede he was the baby’s father in a public statement apologising to Khloe. 

At this point, Khloe broke off all romantic ties with him completely. Their son, Tatum, was born in August 2022, and they have been working together ever since to co-parent. 

The episode also saw Kim and Kourtney coming together despite their feud to discuss making a call to a sex line as teenagers.

While fans recently blasted Kim for trying to steal the spotlight from her sisters.
