Khloe Kardashian, bless her heart, hasn't had the best luck when it comes to her love life.
It's pretty much her thing.
Back in the day, when Kim was building her family's empire and we were just starting to get to know all these wacky characters, Khloe only dated a couple of guys.
Those relationships were either casual or they ended in the guy cheating on Khloe.
Then Khloe met Lamar Odom, and they were married within a few weeks. They really did seem to be perfect for each other, and perhaps they are, but Lamar's addiction issues pushed her away.
After she left Lamar, she dated a bit, but again, nothing too serious.
Things just haven't ever gone all that great for poor Khloe ... but it seems that now, she's really got a good thing going with Tristan Thompson.
Unfortunately, things are not always as they seem.
A tragic new report from Radar claims that although Khloe and Tristan have been together for a good few months now, there's only one reason he's with her.
And it's not her sparkling wit. Or her understated elegance. Or her effortless grace.
No, it's because that fame, y'all.
As a source so harshly puts it, "He's with her for her social media presence."
"Since he's been with Khloe," the source explains, "his following has doubled, which means his endorsement deals will as well."
Well, that's a good a reason as any to date someone, right?
What's that? It's scheming and disgusting and reprehensible? Oh.
Sadly, it's not all that difficult to believe though -- just look at what happened between Tristan and Jordy Craig, you'll see.
Jordy was pregnant with Tristan's baby when he got with Khloe, and some people even say that he actually left her to be with Khloe.
As this source puts it, "It's no coincidence that he upgraded from dating an Instagram model to a reality TV star with more than 60 million followers."
If that's true -- and the timeline doesn't do much to dispute it -- then obviously Khloe needs to run hard and run far from this guy, no matter how much Kris Jenner wants them to get married.
Yes, even if Tristan is willing to help Khloe out with that baby she so desperately wants, even if he's willing to ride the Kardashian fame train for the rest of forever, it's just not worth it.
