Many were shocked when Khloe Kardashian made the decision not to dump Tristan Thompson after he was caught repeatedly cheating on her.
But perhaps no one found the news more surprising than Tristan himself.
You have to figure that dude thought he would be promptly kicked to the curb after footage of him canoodling with various strippers and NBA groupies made the rounds online.
And yet, all these months later, he and Khloe are still an item.
But if you were worried about Tristan getting off scot-free, fear not.
While it's certainly true that he did plenty of getting off, it looks like he's paying the price for all of that extra-marital activity.
For starters, Khloe and Tristan are in couple's therapy these days, and we imagine those sessions consist of Tristan staring blankly at a wall and wishing death on J.R. Smith while Khloe and the therapist just unload on his ass.
On top of that, Tristan can kiss his carefree days in Drew Carey country goodbye.
Yes, it seems that just like LeBron before him, Tristan is moving to LA.
But while King James made the leap in hopes of securing another ring, Tristan did so because Khloe is holding all the cards these days.
It wasn't all that long ago that the Kardashians issued Khloe an ultimatum -- dump Tristan, or we're dumping you.
They seem to have mellowed on that stance, but it still can't be totally comfortable for Thompson to be living in the heart of Kard clan country.
Khloe, on the other hand, is loving every second of it.
She recently took to her personal website to gush about the joys of life in Calabasas:
“I’m over the moon about being home!" Khloe wrote.
"Of course, I missed my actual house immensely while I was in Cleveland — there’s nothing like enjoying your own home."
Khloe went on to state that the best part of the experience is watching baby True interact with her cousins:
"I’m most excited about being so close to my family," she added.
"Getting the kids together and having True do all of her classes with her cousins is a great feeling!”
As for Tristan, well -- he's reportedly making the best of it.
Sources say the situation remains uncomfortable, but he's managing to get along with Khloe's mom and sisters.
One of the few upsides to being a bad Kardashian boyfriend is that it's almost impossible to be the worst Kardashian boyfriend.
Sure, Tristan is bad, bus is he worse than, say, Scott Disick? Hardly.
Khloe and Tristan will reportedly spend the entire NBA offseason in LA, and then temporarily relocate to Cleveland.
We're sure Thompson is counting the days.
In fact, he might be the only one looking forward to this Cavs season.
