Keeping Up With Khloe And Tristan: At look at the pair’s romance as they prepare for a second baby
They shocked the world by revealing they’re expecting their second child together.
But Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s whirlwind romance has been no fairytale.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians favorite and Cleveland NBA star have had a tumultuous on-off relationship over the last few years.
The pair have endured breakups and cheating scandals as well as numerous questions over whether they’re still together.

The reality tv star and basketball player first sparked dating rumors in August 2016 when they were spotted leaving a popular Los Angeles nightclub within minutes of each other.
Speculation only grew after Kardashian, now 38, and Thompson, 31, were seen on multiple occasions spending ‘quality time together’ in September. They also enjoyed a steamy and romantic getaway together in San Lucas, Mexico over the Labor Day weekend.
Following their seemingly successful vacation, the pair made their first public outing together at pal Flo Rida’s birthday party in Miami.
Kardashian confirmed their relationship in November as she gushed about Thompson during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
‘I live here, but I’m [in Cleveland] very often,’ she told the talk show host. ‘I actually really do [like being in Cleveland]. I actually really like it. I like just having my routine and being a little more under the radar. It’s nice.’
But while romance was just heating up and the couple was spending their holidays together, Thompson became a father for the first time.
He welcomed his son, Prince Oliver Thompson, into the world with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.
Rumors have continued to circulate that Thompson and Kardashian first met when he was still dating Craig.

The lovebirds rang in the New Year together after spending the Christmas holiday together.
They seemed to remain very much in love for most of 2017.
Kardashian was seen introducing Thompson to her famous family and rapper Kanye West during a March episode of KUWTK.
In April, the Revenge Body star revealed she desired to settle down with Thompson, telling ES Magazine she wold marry him if he asked. She also revealed their plans to start a family.
‘I would love to have a family. We’ve talked about it,’ she said at the time. ‘I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father.’
She added: ‘I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, “the clock is ticking.” I feel in my soul it will happen.’
In August, nearly one year since they started dating, Kardashian told The Mail On Sunday she was in the ‘best relationship ever’.
‘I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,’ she said.
‘My boyfriend is very protective of me. Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing. Tristan is protective of my entire family, which is beautiful.’
Shortly thereafter she revealed that their romance sparked after the pair had been set up on a blind date.
‘I was put on a blind date with Tristan,’ she told Ryan Seacrest in September 2017. ‘Brandon Jennings, who’s a basketball player – he’s a friend of mine and Malika’s – and he’s like: “You’re such a good girl, I want to introduce you to someone.”
‘I was at the Bel-Air Hotel. He came to the dinner, cause I didn’t want to go on a blind date, so Brandon kind of ambushed the blind date.
‘I had a bunch of people, and he brought him, and we just connected.’
By December, after rumors started to circulate, Kardashian finally confirmed that she was in fact expecting her first child with her boyfriend of one-year.
‘My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along,’ she posted on December 20, 2017.
‘He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can’t believe that our love created life!
‘Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!’
Kardashian continued to gush over her excitement – sharing the news moments before she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Baby on the way: After rumors continued to circulate, Khloe confirmed on December 20, 2017, that she was in fact expecting her first child with her boyfriend of one-year
In the months leading up to the birth of their first child, Thompson and Kardashian seemingly showered each other with love.
Kardashian called the couple ‘mom and dad’ in a January Instagram post. Thompson sent her flowers and thoughtful gifts.
The pair attended Kardashian’s pink-themed baby shower together in March and the Season 14 finale of KUWTK saw the beauty find out her first born would be a daughter.
‘You’re lying! I don’t feel like I’m having a girl. I’m, like, in a state of shock,’ she said when her sister Kylie Jenner told her the news.
Kardashian went on to say that regardless of the baby’s gender she and Thompson would love the tot dearly, adding: ‘She’ll be so cute.’
But while Kardashian was preparing to give birth, scandal started to brew.
Out nesting in Cleveland in Thompson’s home, the first of various cheating scandals emerged – just two days before Kardashian gave birth.
In pictures and videos obtained by Daily Mail, the athlete was seen kissing another woman in a New York City club.
That same day, TMZ also released older content from October 2017 of the star making out and touching some other females whilst in a hookah lounge in Washington D.C.
Youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, was the one to break the news to Kardashian.
At the point the news broke, mom Kris Jenner, sister Kim Kardashian and Kardashian’s doctor jumped on a private plane to be with the star.
Despite the drama and intense tension between the family members, Thompson was in the delivery room when Kardashian gave birth.
A source told Us Weekly at the time that Kardashian was ‘shell-shocked and beside herself’ when she learnt about the cheating scandal.
While Kardashian continued to not acknowledge the cheating scandal, she revealed four days after the birth that she had named her daughter, True.
‘Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,’ she wrote.
‘Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!’
The two were confirmed as ‘fully back on’ in May 2018, but fans continued to bombard Kardashian with questions on why she was still with Thompson.
Frustrated, she finally hit out at a Twitter user in June.
‘You have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist,’ she wrote.
‘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.’
Bundle of joy: Despite the drama and intense tension between the family members, Tristan was in the delivery room when Khloe gave birth to True in April 2018
To the surprise of many, Kardashian and Thompson appeared to be more back on than ever during a couple’s retreat in June 2018.
The couple returned to their happy place, Mexico, where pictures saw them laughing, drinking and enjoying a lot of PDA whilst in the hot tub and on the beach.
They vacationed with Kardashian’s sister, Kendall Jenner, and her then on-and-off beau, Ben Simmons.
However, once again, their fairytale started to crumble when Thompson was accused of another cheating scandal in September.
While Kardashian and True spent the night at home, the basketball player was seen ‘touching a random girl’s butt’ at a nightclub in Los Angeles.
‘Tristan and a girl were chatting and flirting throughout the night. They were very touchy-feely. He had his hand on her butt,’ reported an insider to Us Weekly.
It was confirmed in October, as Kardashian prepared to spend ‘a big chunk’ of the 2018 NBA season in Cleveland with Thompson, that the reality star was starting to have doubts about her relationship.
‘Khloe is being extremely cautious about uprooting her entire life for Tristan again,’ a source close to Kardashian told US Weekly at the time.

Despite rumors the pair had split for good, with Kardashian now permanently living in Los Angeles and Thompson mostly in Cleveland, the beauty and True headed off to spend Thanksgiving with him.
‘Happy thanksgiving from my family to yours #GiveThanks #blessed’ she posted in November 2018.
And it wasn’t long before Kardashian hit out at a fan that tensions between the Kardashian/Jenner siblings was the reason she fled to Ohio.
‘Y’all are reaching now,’ she tweeted on November 23. ‘I’ve spent the past 3years in Cleveland for Thanksgiving … My sisters and I are perfectly fine thank you! All of their families were able to travel but TT being in season, he can not.’
The pair’s Thanksgiving holiday came shortly after KUWTK fans saw what had gone down in April 2018 when Kardashian gave birth to True.
She called Thompson a ‘piece of s**t’ in the hospital, the November 18 episode revealed. Fans also saw Kardashian defend her decision to have Thompson in the room with her for True’s birth.
‘Regardless of what Tristan did to me, I was never going to take that moment away from True or Tristan. She should not be punished for his actions. He is her father and they both deserve to love one another as deeply as they possibly can,’ she said.’
The couple officially called it quits in February 2019. With Kardashian back to posting her cryptic quotes on Instagram, fans were quick to suspect things had once again gone pair shaped between in the romance department.
It was reported that Kardashian spent Valentine’s Day alone with Thompson allegedly flirting up a storm with other women in a Los Angeles bar.
TMZ then reported that Thompson ‘cheated on Khloe’ with none other than sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.
While hosting a party at his Los Angeles home, Thompson was seen locking lips with the then 21-year-old, according to sources who spoke to Hollywood Unlocked.
‘Thompson and Woods were all over each other, and, it wasn’t just “friendly,”‘ the party attendee divulged.
To the surprise of many, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson appeared to be back on in July 2018 a few months after the birth of True and the cheating scandal
The couple reunited in April to celebrate True’s first birthday. An episode of KUWTK revealed that Thompson had tried to kiss his ex at the party.
Kardashian remained single throughout the summer, confirming to US Weekly in July: ‘I’m so good! I feel really happy and I’m spending so much time with my family.
‘We’re working so much, but I like that I’m taking time for myself, and I think that I’m really good at being single! I enjoy it.
‘I don’t ever feel like I need a man to feel solid. I feel really good, so I’m enjoying spending time with True and my family.’
However, Thompson started making headlines that fall as he seemingly tried to win her back. He left flirty comments on her Instagram posts.
An insider reiterated that Kardashian was ‘coparenting’ with Thompson and ‘not getting back with him.’
The source alleged the pair were ‘spending time together primarily involving True.’
But things started looking up again in December when Thompson gave Kardashian a diamond necklace.
The star, taking to Instagram, revealed she had forgiven Thompson, saying: ‘Life is short! We are all humans trying to figure out this thing called life.
‘Yes, I’m allowed to feel hurt and pain. It would be unnatural for me to pretend as if I don’t. Personally, I don’t want to be carrying around a hateful heart.
‘Me holding onto hate is only going to hurt me in the end. I have chosen to NOT pollute my heart and my energy by holding onto anything negative.
‘I am allowed to forgive but still not accept their behaviors. I was nothing but beautiful blessings for EVERYBODY that has ever been in my life.’
She later confirmed the post was intended for both Thompson and Woods, the woman he alleged fooled around with.
Thompson was accused in January 2020 of fathering a child with model Kimberly Alexander (pictured), who claims he is the dad of her approximately five-year-old son
Thompson filed a lawsuit against Alexander and Kardashian threatened to sue her as well. The couple are pictured together in a 2021 episode of KUWTK
Unfortunately, scandal continued to brew in the new year. Thompson was accused of fathering a child with model Kimberly Alexander, who claims he is the dad of her approximately five-year-old son.
The allegations surfaced in January 2020. Sources close to the NBA star said he did have a one-night stand with Alexander in 2011 or 2012, which did not match up with the age of her son.
The NBA star took a paternity test, which came back negative. But Alexander claimed the lab falsified the results on account of its Kardashian connection.
In May, Thompson subsequently launched a $100,000 libel suit against Alexander for continuing to claim he fathered her child.
The filing described Alexander as a ‘wannabe social media influencer and pornographic model/performer who is so desperate to achieve her fifteen minutes of fame that she recently fabricated a false claim that NBA star/Cleveland Cavaliers center/power forward Thompson is the father of her nearly five-year-old son,’ according to People.
Alexander later admitted to faking a direction message from Kardashian and the reality star threatened to sue her.
In June 2021, Thompson was awarded over $52,000 in his lawsuit against Alexander.
Kardashian and Thompson (pictured together in 2018) decided to isolate together during the global coronavirus pandemic at her California mansion so that they could easily co-parent
In March 2020, amid the global coronavirus pandemic, Kardashian and Thompson decided to isolate together at her California mansion so that they could co-parent True.
However, Kardashian denied they reconciled after posting an Instagram with True captioned: ‘The only thing I need you to remember is how much your daddy and I love you!’
Asked by a fan, ‘Does this mean there [sic] back together’, Khloe replied: ‘It means her parents love her beyond measure.’
In April, Kardashian revealed she had no desire to date again after splitting from Thompson and had been single for a year.
Speaking to mom Kris Jenner on KUWTK, Kardashian said: ‘I have friends that are like, “I wanna hook you up with someone,” and I just don’t care.
‘I’m focused on myself and True and like, that’s just what I do. Who knows, maybe I’ll never date again.’
Later that month, Kardashian also admitted that she was considering having another baby with Thompson, despite the fact that the pair were separated.
An episode of KUWTK saw Thompson reveal he is ‘on board’ with being a sperm donor after the reality star had frozen her eggs.
In a confessional, Kardashian admitted: ‘I have no idea what my future holds with Tristan and I, but I really feel a lot better knowing, ”Ok, I have five embryos in a freezer. If I want to use them, I have them there.”’
Is she the reason for the split? It’s reported that Thompson ‘cheats on Khloe’ with none other than sister Kylie’s best friend, Jordyn Woods in February 2019
In June 2020, Kardashian and Thompson put on a ‘very cosy’ display at a mutual friend’s birthday party, but sources claimed they were not together.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the pair were seen standing next to one another with their arms around each other while singing and filming the birthday celebration.
Later that month Kardashian sparked engagement rumors with Thompson after sporting a ‘huge rock on her ring finger’.
Kardashian posted photos from her 36th birthday party wearing a massive pear-shaped diamond with fans immediately flooding the comments to ask if Tristan had popped the question.
However, a source later told Us Weekly that they were ‘not engaged.’
The reality star celebrated her birthday with a small gathering of family and close friends, where she ‘acted like were back together,’ with Thompson, an insider told People.
But their tone changed in July when a source told People that after living together in lockdown, Kardashian and Thompson were ‘giving their relationship another try.’
The insider added: ‘Tristan is working hard to prove himself and has been a great dad to True,’ which appeared to have swayed Kardashian into giving him another chance.

In August, the couple started shopping around for a Los Angeles home to move into together.
It is reported the couple are eyeing homes in Los Angeles to move into together.
‘Despite Khloe trying to keep their relationship more private, she is very much with Tristan. And she is incredibly happy,’ a source told People.
‘They are looking for a house together in L.A. to start fresh.’
For the remainder of the year, the pair were spotted together at family events and packing on the PDA.
In February 2021, Kardashian revealed she was ‘ready’ to conceive their second child using her frozen embryos.
Thompson, whose reaction was caught on KUWTK, told his love: ‘That’s what I like to hear.’ He added that he was ‘all for’ giving True a sibling.
The following month, Thompson celebrated his 30th birthday with the Kardashians, and received sweet tributes from his girlfriend, Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian in honor of his special day.
‘Thank you for showing me everything you said you would. For the father you are. For the best friend I have in you. I’m thankful that I can do absolutely nothing with you and it feels like everything,’ Khloe Kardashian posted on Instagram.
In May, Kardashian revealed more about her family planning journey, disclosing on an episode of KUWTK that she was attempting to find a surrogate for her second child.
‘A few months ago, Tristan and I made embryos, and during that time I was also told that I would not be smart if I carried my second pregnancy, I would be high risk and to explore surrogacy options, so Tristan and I have decided that’s what we’re going to do,’ Kardashian said on the show.
‘I have a surrogate agent who is, you know, sort of filtering through who they think might be the best fit for me and my family.’
‘It is a big commitment and you want to find the right fit, but we got this new chapter, we’ve got this together, we’re a team,’ Thompson added.

But once again, as things with Kardashian were seemingly good, Thompson headlined another scandal.
Model Sydney Chase claimed in April she had ‘hooked up’ with Thompson behind Kardashian’s back.
In a video posted by Hollywood Unlocked, a group of women talked about the basketball player, with Chase claiming she allegedly had a sexual experience with him in January 2021 and alleged that he told her he was single.
Thompson denied the claim and threatened to sue Chase.
Kardashian addressed her relationship during the Kardashian reunion in June 2021, where she said she regained trust with Thompson after seeing all the effort her put into getting back with her.
‘I mean, I definitely trust him as a friend and all those things… What I need to find out, everything comes my way. I just need to trust and focus on today and go day by day. I can’t worry too much about everything else.
‘I know the growth and the work that he’s done. I know all the help that he’s got, and the constant efforts that he makes every single day, and how hard he fought to get back with me currently. I don’t understand why someone would go through all that if they weren’t really serious.’

It’s unclear how long that trust remained after DailyMail.com revealed on June 18, 2021 that T was spotted disappearing into a bedroom with three women during a Bel Air birthday party. He emerged 30 minutes later ‘disheveled.’
Sources exclusively told DailyMail.com that Thompson headed straight for the bar after arriving at the party just after midnight and did a round of ultra-luxurious Deleon tequila shots while swigging Moet champagne before repeatedly grabbing the bottom of a female guest.
Two hours later he was seen heading to a bedroom at the mansion with three women and a male friend.
He emerged 30 minutes later with his dark red shirt crumbled and looking like a ‘mess’ and returned to the bar.
Lawyers for the basketball player have since denied the claims.
But those denials weren’t enough to save his relationship with Kardashian. Just hours after the DailyMail.com story broke, it was reported that the couple had already split up once again.
Sources said the couple broke up ‘a couple of weeks ago’ after the duo had been seen putting on a united front with their daughter days earlier.
A source claimed to PageSix on Monday that the couple’s break up was amicable and they are concentrating on raising their daughter together.
The insider said: ‘They’re getting along. There is no drama. Everything is amicable and they are on the same page with co-parenting.’
Splitsville: It was reported the couple split up once again hours after the DailyMail.com story
The couple was hit with another bombshell when Maralee Nichols, 31, a fitness model, gave birth to a son on December 1, 2021.
She claimed the child was Thompson’s and had been conceived while celebrating the NBA pro’s birthday in Houston in March 2021.
At that time, Thompson and Kardashian, who have had an on/off relationship plagued by allegations of his infidelity, were said to have been back together.
Court documents obtained in December first revealed that Nichols was suing Thompson for child support as well as for reimbursement of medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs.
Thompson filed a gag order request in December saying Nichols’ ‘intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit’ by accusing him of fathering a third child.
Nichols broke her silence on her relationship with Thompson in conversation with E! News where she spoke about not knowing he was in a relationship with Kardashian, not wanting a romantic relationship with him and discussed the paternity lawsuit.

Just weeks after admitting to fathering a secret love child behind Khloe’s back, Tristan was captured getting cozy with a female bar patron in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In March 2022, Kardashian confirmed to Variety that she would address Thompson’s paternity scandal during the first season of her family’s Hulu series The Kardashians.
Although she would touch on the heartbreaking subject, Kardashian noted that it would be done respectfully.
‘It will be addressed on the show. We try as a family to protect the privacy of our partners or significant others, since they didn’t really sign up for this; we did,’ she explained to the outlet.
‘But if something is really public like this was, it would be strange if Tristan was a part of the show and then all of a sudden he disappears and we don’t ever talk about it.’
Ahead of the series’ April 14 premiere date, Hulu released a teaser trailer for the Kardashians, which featured a scene between Kardashian and Thompson.
In it, Kardashian described her relationship with the athlete as ‘complicated’
‘Tristan and I are complicated,’ she said in a voiceover during a scene in which she is seen playing chess with Thompson and their daughter.

She called him a ‘great guy’ and ‘great dad’, but admitted that he’s ‘not the guy for me.’
Kardashian stressed to interviewer Robin Roberts that she and her sisters all ‘want to be happy’ and ‘feel safe’ in their romantic relationships.
On the April 13 premiere episode of The Kardashians, the Good American co-creator revealed that it was her older sister Kim Kardashian who first told her that Thompson had been hit with a paternity suit.
The difficult disclosure was even more uncomfortable, as she shared that Kim broke the news while she was on camera for their new Disney+ reality series The Kardashians.

She also revealed that Thompson was ‘determined’ to rekindle their romance but that she had her reservations given his many cheating scandals.
In an April 19 interview with USA Today, Kardashian admitted that she felt ‘numb’ after learning gut-wrenching news.
‘That was hard,’ she told the news outlet. ‘I think the first time [Tristan cheated] it was either Kendall or Kylie that called me. Now it’s good old Kim.’
Kardashian said she’s now ‘become numb’ to the pain, but that it doesn’t ‘make things any easier’ on her.
‘When you’re hurt so many times — your reactions, your responses to the same thing happening over and over again — there is a numbing sensation to it,’ the mother-of-one confessed.
During an episode of The Kardashians that aired in mid-May, Kardashian and Thompson appeared very much an item.
In the episode, which was filmed prior to news breaking about the paternity scandal, Thompson joked with Kardashian that she’d ‘never leave’ him.
In another moment, Kardashian reassured Thompson that he’d always be family and that the Kardashian-Jenner clan is like the mob.

Kardashian and Thompson also reunited in Calabasas in June, one day ahead of Father’s Day, to to attend their daughter’s dance recital.
After the recital, the trio grabbed a pre-Father’s Day lunch at Sagebrush Cantina and Saloon with Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner, as well as her nieces Dream and Chicago and nephew Psalm.
Also joining the lunch was Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott and grandma MJ.
Kardashian sparked speculation in June that she may have rekindled her tumultuous romance with Thompson after tagging him on a post shared to her Instagram Story.
She’d tagged the basketball player in a photo showcasing the flowers he’d sent her for her 38th birthday.
However, Kardashian went on to delete the post before re-uploading it without the Thompson tag.

Now, just weeks later, a rep for Kardashian has confirmed to DailyMail.com that the reality star is expecting her second child with Thompson via surrogate.
The Good American founder’s representative revealed that the baby was conceived in November before news of the cheating scandal broke.
‘We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,’ the statement began.
‘Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.’
Despite recent rumblings that Kardashian and Thompson had reconciled, a source close to the family stated that the pair are ‘not back together’ and ‘haven’t spoken to one another since December outside of co-parenting matters.’
TMZ reported that the birth of the couple’s second baby is ‘imminent’ and could be just a matter of days, while another insider suggested to the news outlet that the child had already been born.
