Over the past three playoff games, Tristan Thompson has been a very pleasant surprise for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
He's helped the team win a trio of vital matchups by being aggressive on the court, battling for rebounds and earning his club second chances.
Similarly, in his personal life, it now appears as if Thompson has been given a second chance.
Or would this be a third chance?
Perhaps even a fifth chance?
Just a few weeks after the Internet blew up with VERY strong evidence that Thompson has been cheating basically non-stop on Khloe Kardashian, the basketball player and his long-time girlfriend were spotted out in public.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the parents of brand new daughter True dined at TownHall restaurant in Cleveland, where they lunched with a few friends.
And, based on this website evidence, it appeared as if Khloe was happy, relaxed and very content with her dishonest baby daddy.
Despite pressure from various family members to kick Tristan to the curb, it's evident at the moment that Khloe isn't ready to do so.
Does this mean she actually wants to marry Thompson, as one recently report shocking claimed?
No, not necessarily. That sure does seem like a huge step for the couple to suddenly take.
But it certainly says something that Khloe has not yet returned to Los Angeles.
She's still in Cleveland, still apparently hoping to raise her child under the same roof as her father.
"She always planned to stay in Cleveland the first three months," an insider says of Khloe, adding:
"Now with Tristan in the playoffs for possibly another month, no decision needs to be made right now."
It's true: The Cavs are up two games to none on the Toronto Raptors and look well on their way to advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals yet again.
Thompson has suddenly become an integral part of their playoff rotation,while remaining an integral part of Kardashian's life.
“No one in her world is supporting Tristan and she’s still in love with him," this same Us Weekly insider claims.
Back on April 12, Khloe welcomed her first child into the world.
Thompson was reportedly by her side, but the two got into a screaming match nearly as soon as they became parents, according to Radar Online.
Can you blame Khloe?
Literally a day before she went into labor, word (and surveillance footage) leaked about Thompson sleeping way, way around.
He seemingly slept with at minimum one woman while Khloe was three months pregnant and one while she was eight months pregnant.
It's just so, so, so very wrong.
But we can understand why it's challenging for Khloe to know what to do in the face of becoming a mother AND discovering that the man who helped her to do is basically a huge liar.
We aren't gonna judge.
We're just gonna hope these two stars do what is best for little True.
