It's been a couple of weeks since Tristan Thompson was exposed cheating on Khloe Kardashian, and yet ... there's been no confirmed breakup.
Some worry that Khloe doesn't have a klue.
But a new report says that she's not oblivious or in denial ... she just has a lot of things to consider. Hmmm ...
A source has come forward to tell Entertainment Tonight that Khloe is not delusional and she's heard most of the things that the rest of us have about Tristan and his adventurous penis.
"She's not in a bubble of denial."
Denial happens to a lot of people when bad news breaks. And some celebrities are notorious for sometimes living in a "bubble" that excludes information that the rest of the world can see on a daily basis.
Apparently, that's not the case with Khloe.
"She knows what's going on and is still trying to process it."
There's a lot to process, of course. What has some folks puzzled is that Khloe hasn't cut Tristan loose, publicly and permanently, just yet.
"But so far, she's managed to move past it and look forward."
Tristan Thompson has reportedly been cheating on Khloe through her pregnancy with at least five different women.
He apparently didn't feel a need to wear a condom while his penis was on its secret walkabout.
And one of these hookups is said to have taken place the night before Khloe's baby shower. Gross.
Khloe and those in her inner circle of friends have internet access, just like the rest of us.
"Her friends and family are learning all these new details."
Also like the rest of us, they're apparently working to parse what is fact and what is an opportunist selling an alleged story for a quick buck.
"And it's hard to know what's just someone trying to cash in and what is true."
When you don't know what's true and what's not, because these things are difficult to verify, you don't know what to pass on to the person who may need to hear it.
"It's tough to know what, if anything, to tell Khloe."
Do you ever have a friend who just refuses to hear any criticisms of her man?
To no one's real surprise, it sounds like Khloe is of that temperament.
"If a friend tells Khloe that they heard about another cheating story, they risk being cut off by her."
That sounds drastic, but Khloe is in an emotional place right now.
So apparently she may just not want to hear it. Even if she needs to.
We can imagine that a lot of people who love Khloe are walking on eggshells.
"She's stuck by her man in the past, so it doesn't even seem worth it to fill her in on all the details."
The source dishes on Khloe's surprising plans.
"Khloe is very settled in Cleveland right now and is planning on staying another few weeks to a month at least."
Despite Khloe's family's (and common sense's) urges for her to get the hell out of Cleveland and back to her family, it sounds like Khloe's not leaving any time soon.
Maybe that's doctor's orders, but that sounds like she's reluctant to break off her relationship with Tristan.
"Of course, that could change, especially since every day there seems to be more stories [coming] out about Tristan."
Another source has recently dished about Khloe's convicted feelings, saying:
"Khloe loves him deeply. He is the father of her child, but she feels betrayed and blindsided."
At the risk of sounding blunt, being the father of her child at this point just means that the guy has viable sperm.
Haven't his actions made it very clear that he's passing out his DNA like a party favor?
"Khloe's main focus is being a mother and figuring out what is best for True."
If it's true that Tristan is still hooking up with one of his side pieces, even as he is allegedly begging for Khloe's forgiveness, that sounds like something that Khloe needs to know.
Even if it's not fun to hear it. But we can understand why the people who love her aren't willing to put their friendship on the line to warn her.
It's hard to see how she could decide that staying with Tristan is the right thing. All things considered, some fear that Tristan would see it as unspoken permission to continue to cheat.
Even if he manages to keep his metaphorical ball (penis) in his own court, does she really want to stay with the man who humiliated her on the week when her child was born?
Not only does that seem like a toxic relationship for Khloe, but that seems like a less than ideal environment for True.
