Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian, and it doesn’t look like these were isolated incidents. There are other reports — and other videos.
But a source says that Khloe and Tristan are ignoring this huge story and just focusing on waiting for Khloe to give birth.
Is Khloe totally in denial?
A source spoke to Entertainment Tonight, and they have some intriguing claims about Tristan Thompson’s alleged cheating.
"The video going around shows Tristan in a loud club briefly talking to a girl, nothing more."
That’s quite the claim.
"Tristan was there for roughly an hour and left with his teammates."
All evidence to the contrary, we suppose.
The source goes on to report that Khloe and Tristan are totally focused on her pregnancy.
"Khloe and Tristan are happy and focusing on the birth of their daughter."
That’s … so interesting to hear, on multiple levels.
See, if there were nothing to this story but one video that shows a woman put her face into Tristan Thompson’s hoodie, maybe — maybe — it could be explained away.
There could, conceivably, be a totally innocuous explanation for why a woman would bring her face so close to a man’s face without them kissing. Did he need her smell his breath? Probably not, but it’s … possible.
But even if the alleged makeout session at the PH-D bar could be explained away, would that really be enough to allow Khloe to bury her head in the sand?
Because after that story broke, TMZ came out with a video, dating back to October, of Tristan appearing to be fooling around with two women.
And then The Shade Room showed Tristan apparently with that same woman, no longer at the bar.
Some might try to argue that because Tristan is a young athlete, Khloe’s pregnancy status somehow forced him to seek relief.
As countless fathers can attest, that is absurd.
(We hope that we don’t have to explain to anyone that there are plenty of ways to relief sexual frustration that don’t involve cheating on your very pregnant baby mama)
What’s more is that Tristan’s alleged hookah lounge hookup from October was also during Khloe’s pregnancy, but just a few months in.
Recently, Khloe discussed pregnancy sex and mentioned that the two of them continued to be intimate with one another well into her pregnancy.
So even if "but she’s pregnant" were a viable excuse now, that wouldn’t fly for October.
So … is Khloe in denial?
You’d think that, after everything that she went through with Lamar Odom, she would know how to grapple with the realities of dating an athlete whose penis prefers a nomadic lifestyle.
If Khloe decides to dump Tristan or stay with him, that’s her business.
But we would hope that she’s ready to face reality and understand Tristan for who he is.
Perhaps, if she really isn’t willing to accept these multiple reports of him being an alleged serial cheater, her sisters will be able to talk some sense into her.
If Khloe is trying to bury her head in the sand, then the fact that everyone is talking about this story can’t help.
Tristan’s other baby mama expressed her sympathies, but if Khloe is in denial, she probably won’t appreciate that, either.
When someone is prepared to reject photos and videos, anyone trying to express sympathy is going to sound like an accuser.
But perhaps that report about Khloe’s current focus and Tristan’s alleged innocence is just from a source who’s trying to cover for Tristan and smooth things over.
If so, it will be up to Khloe’s family, who might be able to view evidence more objectively, to get through to her.
