Khloe Kardashian has broken her silence on Tristan Thompson.
For real this time.
We mean it.
We're not just talking about some vague and mysterious quote on Instagram that may or may not have been some kind of reference to Thompson having slept with many other women while Khloe was pregnant.
We're talking about the first direct reference to her dishonest baby daddy that we can recall Khloe making since she became a mother.
And this is what brought it on:
On Monday afternoon, a Twitter user named Queen Persia wrote the following:
“I love, adore & root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan.
"She preaches about women knowing their self worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite.”
This is now really all that unfair of a take, but it prompted quite the response from Kardashian.
"Not exactly Queen Persia," she wrote, prior to making two things clear:
- She is still with Thompson.
- She does not consider this to be a sign of weakness.
Continued Khloe in this reply;
"You have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. 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."
Again, as far as we can recall, this is by far the most Khloe has ever said about this sad situation.
It started in mid-April, once surveillance footage surfaced from multiple establishments that appeared to depict Thompson cozying up to various women during Kardashian's pregnancy.
He's never denied talk that he cheated several times on his girlfriend... and there's been plenty of talk about it.
The unfortunate news broke two days before Khloe gave birth to the couple's daughter, True Thompson.
And, ever since, neither Khloe nor Tristan has really said anything about the scandal.
Of late, however, there have been a myriad of signs that the couple never really broke up.
They've been spotted on lunch dates and, just recently, Khloe herself shared footage of the stars working out together,
Moreover, Thompson posted his very first pic of True late last week.
It doesn't seem to matter what her family members think or what Thompson did with a number of side pieces in the past, Khloe is obviously dead set on making this romance work.
She's "staying in" the "situation," right? By her own admission above.
Pretty revealing, huh?
In response to Khloe's response to her original Tweet, Queen Persia went ahead and wrote the following:
"I’m not trying to judge you, bc I do adore you girl. your a role model to millions of girls, I get that you’re trying to figure shit out & tbh, your fans are protective of you.
"we just don’t want some lame breaking your heart again. that’s it."
Kardashian seemed to come around and appreciate this take, ending the exchange as follows:
"I love you for that and girl trust me don’t I understand!!! I appreciate you. I do!!"
So there you have it. Khloe and Tristan are together and they show no signs of this changing.
Should Kardashian be prasied or mocked for this decision?
