It’s been a few months since the news of Tristan Thompson cheating on his partner and baby-mama, Khloe Kardashian surfaced. And according to a source close to Khloe, the whole episode has yet to blow over; in fact, the storm is still raging chez Tristan and Khloe.
In case you missed it, it was back in April, just two days before Khloe would give birth to their baby girl, True, that allegations of the Tristan’s infidelity came to light. On the surface, with the couple still together with their now three-month-old daughter in their home in Calabasas, California, things were going OK, but new revelations from a couple of major US magazines suggest otherwise.
“Khloe and Tristan are still not fully OK,” a source close to the couple told US Weekly. “They act like they are when they’re in front of others, but it’s all a show at this point.”
Not surprising, perhaps, but still sad. If you’ve ever put on a brave face in public when you were feeling less than awesome, you know how hard it can be.
For Khloe, it’s a matter of taking ownership of the betrayal of trust, something she allegedly says Tristan has yet to do, fully.
“As a guy, he’s naturally not as understanding as he can be in this particular situation,” a source told People. “It’s so much easier for him to, not completely, but brush things under the rug. She can’t do that…. Khloe carried his child and is much more in the limelight than he is, and she doesn’t think he understands the consequences of his decisions. She thinks the cheating scandal is a way bigger deal than he does and he doesn’t fully understand the repercussions of his actions affecting not only him and Khloe but the entire family as a whole.”
Of course, Khloe has been through this whole ‘cheating NBA partner’ before with former Los Angeles Laker, Lamar Odom. That scar tissue is still healing and Thompson’s gone and opened another wound.
“It’s been a tough learning lesson for him. The whole family had to deal with the public’s perception of him and his relationship with Khloe changing dramatically,” the source told People. “He also doesn’t fully ‘get’ that she’s been through this before [with ex-husband Lamar Odom], except that this time there’s a child involved.”
Meanwhile, on the other side of the schism, Thompson is battling his own demons.
“Tristan is feeling trapped in a bad relationship,” another source told US Weekly. “He’s no longer going with Khloe for [therapy] sessions. He just didn’t feel it was helping to discuss s*** that happened months ago.”
One feels trapped, the other feels alone…this isn’t good. At this point, it’s all rumours, but when sources are speaking to two major tabloids — including the entertainment news bible, People — about serious problems in the relationship, then things are not looking good. Someone’s peeps are going to these places and spilling some, if not all, the beans, and it’s unclear whether it’s Khloe’s or Tristan’s people, or both. Either way, there’s trouble (again) at the Kardashian household.
