Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson were engaged for ten months in 2021

Once again, I hate that I know so much backstory on Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson. Let’s start with some somewhat recent history. In December 2020/January 2021, with the pandemic raging, Tristan was screwing around on Khloe Kardashian with multiple women, some of whom were talking about it openly. In January-April 2021, Tristan was (again!) screwing around with various women quite openly. He was sleeping with Sydney Chase, and when she spoke about their hookups, Khloe contacted her to try to get her to stop talking. During that time period, Tristan also impregnated Maralee Nichols, who would give birth to Tristan’s child in December 2021. Then in June 2021, Khloe and Tristan were still “together” when he cheated on her at some kind of party, and Khloe then made a big deal about how they broke up. No one bought it, for good reason – they were still together, and by November, they arranged for the surrogacy for True’s sibling.

Now we have to overlay this story on top of that ^ timeline. While all of this illicit boning was happening, Tristan apparently proposed to Khloe – ?? – and she said no, but she also said yes. In the latest episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians, Khloe and Kim discuss how Tristan proposed in December 2020 but Khloe turned him down. But then Buzzfeed’s sources say that actually, Tristan proposed in February 2021 and he and Khloe were “engaged” when she found out about Maralee Nichols.

BuzzFeed News can now exclusively reveal that Khloé accepted a proposal from Tristan in February 2021 — just one month before he impregnated Maralee — and they were still engaged at the time his paternity scandal broke.

In the most recent episode of The Kardashians, the subject of Tristan proposing came up during a conversation between Kim and Khloé. This was filmed between January and February of this year — roughly a month after their final breakup following the news he’d fathered a child outside of their relationship. During the chat, Kim says the breakup wasn’t necessarily such a bad thing, hinting that Khloé perhaps always knew that Tristan would end up humiliating her.

“I mean, the fact that he proposed and you never told us…” Kim casually says to Khloé. In her confessional Kim gives more details, explaining that Tristan had called her the year before to say he was planning to propose on Valentine’s Day. However, after hearing nothing from Khloé on the big day, she followed up with Tristan who told her he’d actually popped the question two months prior. “I was like ‘Hey, I never heard anything from Khloé … did you propose?!’” Kim recalls of their conversation. “And he was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I did in December.’”

Khloé goes on to explain that she declined the proposal and kept the whole thing completely underwraps because she didn’t feel comfortable with the state of the relationship, or telling her family news that she wasn’t “proud” of or “excited” about.

“I said, ‘I need to make sure that this is a totally different relationship, because I wanna be proud to say I’m engaged to anyone!’” she says. “And that’s why I said, ‘You know, I’m not comfortable accepting this right now, because I’m not excited to tell my family.’”

Kim’s comments initially suggested that Tristan had proposed in December 2020. However, sources with knowledge of the situation have told BuzzFeed News that he actually proposed to Khloé for the first time in December 2019 when they weren’t officially together. While Khloé turned him down at the time, they revisited the subject of an engagement in February 2021, and this time she accepted the proposal. The couple never announced the news officially, but the insider added that they remained engaged until Tristan’s paternity scandal broke 10 months later.

We’ve been getting some weird comments about “poor Khloe” and “he lied to her and love-bombed her” and “her mother sucks, that’s why Khloe is so damaged.” Like, Khloe is a grown-ass woman with money, access and agency. She’s chosen all of this. She’s choosing to present herself this way too, like she’s a victim of evil Tristan, with whom she’s desperate to reunite. She’s also not some naif, constantly in a state of shock whenever she learns about some new side-chick. She was literally contacting Tristan’s side chicks to threaten them or hush them up. She also lies constantly about what she knew and when and how they “broke up” except really they were engaged. Anyway, I believe that she was stupid and delusional enough to get engaged to him.

    I call BS, If she was engaged she would have been flashing a huge rock around.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Does Tristan know he proposed to her and that they were engaged?

  3. Yup, Me says:

    Khloe perpetually looks like a massively insecure fool and it’s sad.

    I keep wondering how this insecure, drama addicted (white) woman has any chance of raising a confident, powerful, self loving brown skinned girl and I worry for True.

    And now she has a Black son, too. Bless both of those babies.

    • Cait C says:

      No she has a biracial son and a biracial daughter. They are biracial they can face anti-blackness but I will not erase the struggles and identities of actual black people with that of biracial individuals. They navigate through this world differently

      • Noki says:

        The one drop rule exist for a reason,they will still face discrimination(Hello Meghan !?) as we have seen with someone biracial who married an actual Prince and it still didnt matter. But since they will be raised in a privelleged hollywood bubble they will be spared a lot of BS.

      • Christina says:

        Agreed, Cait C and Noki. Both, in my experience and that of family, are true.

      • Yup, Me says:

        @Cait C – True is biracial and she is also clearly brown skinned. She will have massive amounts of economic privilege as well as name recognition from her family, but when she is out and about on her own in the future, no one will be checking blood quantum before they disrespect her. She looks just like her farher. Her phenotype is that of a Black girl and if her brother is of comparable complexion, the same will be true for him. It’s not erasure of others’ struggles or experiences to acknowledge that.

  4. Chaine says:

    Almost every picture of Tristan he looks so deeply unhappy.

    • theotherViv says:

      Yes! And can we please say Thank You Kaiser for repeatedly featuring this hilarious pic of Tristan with approx. $100.000 worth of handbags in a jet. Makes my day EVERY TIME.
      He is like a tall, unfunny version of Floyd Mayweather.

  5. Noki says:

    I almost choked on my coffee when i saw a clip of the whole Koven sitting around discussing Tristan and having the nerve to say he trapped her with the second baby. Huh !!???t

    • shanaynay says:

      Yep, just another stupid story line for their show. I cannot believe their show is still around. I cannot believe people are still waiting it. WTF??

  6. Lucy says:

    I would feel sorry, even pity, for Khloe if she wasn’t such a terrible person. As such, I love this for her.

  7. girl_ninja says:

    She becomes more and more embarrassing. No dignity at all.

    • molly says:

      I wouldn’t live her life of humiliation for all the billions in the world. It’s one thing to have a bad picker and date a guy who is CLEARLY not that into you, but to have to be embarrassed in front of the world (repeatedly!) sounds absolutely miserable.

  8. JennyJazzhands says:

    Believable. She was wearing a huge and hideous ring for a long while.

  9. coco says:

    I call BS on this story if it was true it would have been all over the social media.

    Funny how this poor Khloe story comes out right after the Chloë Grace Moret and how Khloe played a part in her bullying. Just like the Kardashians.

    • Lucy says:

      Oooooh YEP!

    • molly says:

      See also: The E! news stories and instagram post about Khloe being “too skinny” and her sisters’ “concern”.

      (Those Kardashian/Jenner kids are so f-ed for their future. I hope Kris sleeps well at night among her billions.)

  10. M&M says:

    I can’t with her. How many times are we going to hear different versions of the same story? Over it!!!

  11. Andrea says:

    The thing that shocks me is they say we are so hateful commentwise. Does this family have any idea how it looks? No way any normal friend of ours we would sweep it under the rug and pretend everything is fine and dandy. They live in a bizarre unhealthy universe of their own making. At least Kortney has distanced herself and seems to be the only one in a health, stable relationship.

  12. ME says:

    Seems like they are running out of storylines for Khloe. I wonder how this family will cope once their show gets cancelled and their fame dwindles. I can’t imagine how desperate they are going to be to stay relevant. I see them pushing their poor kids even more into the spotlight.

  13. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    I honestly think they are soulmates and I hope they get back together. Khloe’s poor victim routine is tiring and unnecessary. She should just hold her head high, stop harassing the jump offs, and proudly wear the tacky engagement ring she bought.

    • Christina says:

      Lol! Own it or fix, Khloe.

      She needs therapy big time. But she doesn’t care what we think.

      She seemed so much more centered than the others once.

  14. shanaynay says:

    I think one people stop watching their stupid a** show, and we all stop talking and writing about them, hopefully, they will crawl back from underneath the rock from which they came!!! At least, that’s my hope.

  15. Rebecca says:

    I do think that she actually turned him down when he proposed. Last season, she talked a lot about how she has so much anxiety now around the internet/public’s reaction to what she does and I think her fear of those reactions made her say no. I know that I’ve been so frustrated around her choices to be with Tristan these past years because she’s my favorite in the family and has the best personality, so I want better for her. I think that also tends to make the public judge her more as well since out of all of the out-of-touch family members, she’s the one we all root for. Good God, I hope she stays away from Tristan!

    • Coco says:

      The show is fake and there was never any real proposals and you should look up what she did to Chloë Grace Moret If you don’t already know.

  16. no1sportsfan says:

    Does Tristan know that they were engaged for ten months in 2021?

  17. JustMe says:

    Do these people not worry about sexually transmitted disease? Why are you publicly not claiming him and be engaged and then deny it yet again when he humiliates you yet again. At this point I feel she gets some enjoyment…is she addicted to the attention he gives her when she catches him…?? So bizarre

  18. jferber says:

    Not one word of this do I believe. Had they been engaged, she’d have been shouting it from the rooftops and calling him “my husband” or “my husband to be.” She’s not a quiet one when it comes to him so just no, all a lie. I can’t see him EVER getting engaged or married. Not at this stage in his life, anyway. Wait till his career ends and the money stops. Then he’ll beg Khloe to marry him with no pre-nup and she will. Because stupid.

  19. Gabby says:

    How much did she pay for those sunglasses in the 2nd picture? It looks like two TVs on her face. Tristan, he’s about as deep as the kiddie pool. Sheesh!
