Khloe Kardashian & Tristan’s relationship is ‘unstable,’ she’s not moving to Cleveland


Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson visit a laser center

Real question: do you think Tristan Thompson has ever been truly faithful to Khloe Kardashian? He was in a relationship when he met Khloe and I believe there was probably a small window where Khloe was the only person he was seeing, towards the beginning of their relationship. But I genuinely believe he cheated on her throughout her pregnancy, just as I believe that Tristan has been hooking up with other women (in various ways) since Khloe gave birth to baby True. It has seemed like Tristan has been waiting for Khloe to simply dump him, and he’s been waiting for months. Khloe keeps clinging to him and no one knows why, other than the “she’s a doormat who needs to love herself” reason. Anyway, sources are really trying to convince people that Khloe might be over it. I’ll believe it when I see it. Some highlights from this very detailed People Magazine story:

On Khloe’s home life: “Khloé is stable, content and very happy with being a mom and with how things are going with True,” a Kardashian source tells PEOPLE. While Kardashian is thriving in motherhood, it seems her romantic life remains fractured. “As for Tristan, things are still quite up in the air between them,” the source shares about the couple. “Things seem more unstable in the relationship right now. But she’s taking it all in stride.”

What’s up with Khloe’s cryptic messages: Throughout the past week, Kardashian has been posting cryptic messages on her Instagram account — and is spurring speculation about where she and Thompson currently stand. On Friday, exactly six months after True was born and half a year since Thompson’s scandal, the E! personality reflected on the past year. “In 6 months time you can either be in the same place or a better place,” she posted on her Instagram Story. “Focus everyday on improving your Health, Wealth, and Happiness. It will take time but you can make it happen.” In a second post, Kardashian shared, “You become a master of your life when you learn how to control where your attention goes. Value what you give your energy and time to.”

She’s no longer moving to Cleveland? Last week, an insider told PEOPLE that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has put her move back to Cleveland on hold and shared that the new mom is still grappling with the aftermath of the cheating controversy. “Her feelings about Tristan cheating is something that she is still dealing with,” the source said. “She has good weeks when she is fine about it and weeks when she is upset about it. It’s of course difficult to trust someone 100 percent who cheated days before he was about to become a dad.”

So Khloe is putting her move to Cleveland “on hold,” but she still traveled to Cleveland for a few days without True last week, just to keep an eye on Tristan, really. She’s posting cryptic sh-t on IG, and sources say the relationship is up in the air. My guess is that Khloe is slowly coming to the realization that this isn’t going to have a happy ending, but she’s dragging her feet about what to do next. She would rather keep up appearances than actually pull the trigger on a break up. And she’s probably tired too – tired of trying to keep some kind of lojack on Tristan, because of course she doesn’t trust him and of course she has good reason not to trust him. What’s the point of all this? I don’t know. A soap opera storyline for a reality show, maybe.

    Did anyone really believe she was moving to Cleveland? Don’t know what NBA schedules are like but he would be gone for at least half the season. Time to pull the plug on this relationship and get on with life.

    • jwoolman says:

      Yeah, LA sounds like a more sensible homebase for her. True has cousins close in age and Khloe has no one in Cleveland.

  2. Ktae says:

    I’m shocked I tell you. I didn’t see this happening at all.

    Khloe. Dump him. Be single for awhile. Be a good momma. Quit picking crappy men

  3. Adee says:

    Tristan really has Khloe at checkmate in this.

    She can’t say she never knew, she cant also be too surprised when it happens again.

    Her baby True should be her main focus, Tristan never was and never will be committed to her. Caring for a baby and spying on a man hoping he won’t cheat is too stressful and unnecessary.

    Khloe really is disappointing, before Tristan she seemed like a tough, smart woman with some sort of personal strength and self love.
    Hopefully that Khloe comes back.

  4. Coco says:

    I never felt she was stupid for trying to make it work after JUST having a baby. (For getting together with a guy with a pregnant girlfriend? Definitely.) It must have been confusing to try and sort through that mess with postpartum hormones and everything else that goes along with new motherhood. I always figured at some point, when she got out of the newborn trenches, they’d break up. Hope this is true because Tristan, at the very least, doesn’t know how to be discreet and it’s embarrassing.

    • JadedBrit says:

      @Coco she shouldn’t have messed with instant karma…

      • Coco says:

        Totally agree. My Mom was pregnant with my little sister when my Dad left for his mistress. Ended up marrying her and leaving her for someone else too. Karma is a total bitch. I can empathysize with finding outyour partner cheated on you in your 39th week of pregnancy. Total karma but it’s still sad too. Life is hard enough, don’t know why some folks make it even harder getting into messy situations.

    • Louise177 says:

      I was surprised that most people felt Khloe should leave ASAP. She was about 2 or 3 weeks away from giving birth. That’s a lot to ask of her even right after the birth. She wasn’t emotionally stable to go through that. Now she should run as fast and soon as possible. Tristan doesn’t care about her. He couldn’t be more blunt.

  5. Anastasia says:

    What? That’s SHOCKING! ;)

    And no, I don’t think he was ever faithful to her. Not for a hot second.

  6. Lightpurple says:

    It isn’t cheating if you haven’t made any kind of commitment. That man never committed to her, never was exclusively hers. She is just someone he impregnated while dating her and others. She saw that as a commitment; he clearly did not since this is the SECOND time he has done this. He got trashed rather loudly at a preseason game here a few weeks ago by a sparse crowd. It’s only going to get louder as regular season begins. The rest of the team isn’t going to want us that distraction

    • Nancy says:

      We don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. She is very gullible and they all tell you promises in the dark, she’s just dumb enough to believe them. The Celtics hate the Cavs, so they are very loud whether TT is there or not. Even right after she had the kid, at first he got the boos, but they quickly went away, just like they will this time. Kris Humphries went through the same thing after the divorce from Kim. It doesn’t last. True baller fans don’t want Kardashian drama, they want a game. WTH did Kyrie do to his hair…LOL. Sure Tristan and he will have a laugh together, they were both drafted by the Cavs the same year.

  7. Kerfuffle says:

    Khloe desperately wants the status of being the WAG of a high profile ball player, and has been willing to look the other way as a trade off. Thompson was never faithful to Khloe, there’s always women at the club, Insta girls, groupies.

    • Tiffany says:

      DING DING DING !!!!!

      This is exactly it. The goal is WAG. And that in of itself is truly a sad place to be.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Yep. #WAGgoals.

    • Nancy says:

      She’s had plenty of ballers, but James Harwood was the only famous one. I thought she was the good wife to Lamar with all his problems until she filmed all the things he went through and made a season out of them on her show. Tristan, take cover, you’re next. The family hates him for they, unlike her, see he doesn’t want her long term. Perfect villain for the show, with True being the redemption. Whoever would have thought these women would have so much staying power. Who watches the show????? No cameras anymore Klo, Lebron’s gone, Tristan’s mediocre. Stay in LA. Please.

  8. PippiLongdivision says:

    I’m always a little surprised at a lot of the comments on the stories about Khloe and Tristan. Sure, if I were in her situation, I’d like to think I’d have dropped him almost as soon as I found him, and it would be nice to see her assert herself and stand up for her self-worth, but I sort of expect to see more calls for him to grow-up and dump her. Whatever her motivation for hanging around, he’s the one who clearly doesn’t want to be in a monogamous relationship with her, SO WHY DOESN’T HE JUST LEAVE? He’s acting like a manipulative man-child, too cowardly to just admit he wants out, and is trying to force her to do the actual dumping by publicly treating her like rubbish. Neither of them looks good in this, but frankly, to me he comes off as the (significantly) bigger bumhole here.

  9. AnnaKist says:

    Their relationship is unstable? I almost keeled over in shock.

  10. Olive says:

    “days before he was about to become a dad” I know Khloe apparently doesn’t like it but Tristan was ALREADY A DAD before True’s birth!

    • jwoolman says:

      That’s a real complication. If he stays with Khloe in LA, then he has less opportunity to be with his son. If he gets more women pregnant (and you just know he will), the complications will grow. Khloe just needs to accept the fact that he will just be an occasional visitor in her daughter’s life, if even that. She tried to give him a big chunk of bonding time to get things started, and that was a good thing. The rest is entirely up to him.

      Her only real mistake is to think she can change him. She’s certainly not the first woman to make that mistake.

      • Swack says:

        How much is he really with his son? We know of a couple instances where he was with him but I don’t beieve he is that involved with his son. I also believe, unless Khloe really pushes it, he won;t be that involved with True.

      • Amy says:

        I believe his ex-girlfriend and their son are based in LA so LA would actually make sense as a home base.

      • Nancy says:

        His ex is the opposite of Kardashian. She’s classy. She looks the part of a Kardashian, short and very curvy, like Kim. Tristan has a type, and Khloe isn’t it. I thought Jordan lived here in the area, she runs a blog. She has never publically called out Kardashian. She only ig’d a pic of their son a couple times, but nothing close up. She’s not a fame whore, like Ms. Khloe. This whole mess stinks and there are two kids involved, only one until Khloe decided to keep up with Jordan. I can’t wait for this relationship to be over. I commented up thread, but it didn’t post, she really needs help.

  11. LadyLaw says:

    If this is what she’s saying to people then there must be some new incriminating photos….

  12. mtam says:

    I’ve held a theory for a while that the reason she still clings to him is because she believed (and maybe still illadvisedly hopes) that she can have a relationship with Tristan like the one her sis Kim and Kanye have. Meaning, she thought they could live separate lives, and yet still use eachother for their image whenever need be. Unfortunately for her Tristan doesn’t even try to be discreet with his other life, while kim and Kanye do.
    Also, despite Kanye nowadays barely functioning reasonably without his meds, it still seems he cares a lot about Kim and their children. Whereas Tristan barely seems to care at all.

    I also think she still clings to him because she has low self esteem and has always wanted to look and be considered as attractive as her sisters, and she prob thought being in a relationship with a young and famous basketball player would do good for that image, and dismissed all the red flags about him.

    Basically she picked the wrong partner for all the wrong reasons and the wrong person to be her child’s father and now she’s stuck with him and trying desperately to fix their image.

  13. me says:

    The question is…is she ready to destroy him in the media? That’s what the Kardashians/Jenners do when they are really done with a man. Maybe she’s “holding on” because she’s trying to get pregnant by him again?

    • Nancy says:

      I agree with half of your theory. Tristan isn’t big enough to get the ink to destroy his career over a Kardashian. If anything, he will be a laughing stock. Does she want to get pregnant by him again. YES. It’s what the Kardashians do. They want the same baby daddy. Kourtney has three kids with Scott and no intentions to be with him in the future. Crazy is as crazy does.

  14. Andrea says:

    I have a good friend who had two babies with a man who verbally and physically abuses her. She seems to think an intact family is what is best despite not needing him financially. People explain to me once you have children with someone, it becomes much harder to leave them. Is this true? I have no children of my own and thus found it easier to leave ex-bfs.

  15. Skipper says:

    I do not get this at all. I guess there is all kinds of evidence that Tristan is a ‘ho, so why doesn’t he just bail on her? Adios. bye. Why not go? Why does he have to sit around waiting for her to pull the trigger on him??!! I mean if I wanted to break up with someone for months I would be go driver go gone.

  16. Pandy says:

    I was going to write a pithy comment … but I can’t care enough, honestly.

  17. Gabby says:

    Can’t feel bad for her. She knows exactly what he is and what she’s getting herself into by clinging to him for dear life. She obviously needs serious therapy and learn how to truly be happy alone. A relationship is not always the answer to one’s lack of happiness.

  18. Lil bill says:

    I’m still surprised at all the comments at all about anything Kardashian’s, why are they still relevant? Who cares? Don’t we all have better things to do like vote? Like Help the environment? Recycle?

    • Nancy says:

      Lil bill: Whatcha doing here?? Lol. We all come to Celebitchy to vent and talk. Nothing wrong from escaping the demons for awhile, even if it’s just laughing at the Kardashians. Now excuse me, I have to change my daughter’s diaper!!
