Two weeks from today, the Cleveland Cavaliers will travel to Minnesota to take on the Timberwolves, thus beginning their 2018-2019 season.
Fans of the team are no doubt experiencing some mixed emotions as the Cavs kick off this year’s campaign without the help of LeBron James, but surely no one is as ambivalent about the upcoming season as Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe obviously enjoys all the benefits of dating an NBA player, and she was frequently in attendance at Tristan Thompson’s home games last season.
Unfortunately, Tristan’s away games were quite another story entirely.
As you’ve no doubt heard, Tristan was caught cheating on Khloe while she was pregnant with his child last year.
To the surprise of many, Khloe did not immediately kick Tristan to the curb, and instead opted to give her baby daddy a second chance.
Over the summer, Tristan reportedly did his best to repair his relationship with Khloe, and he even got back in her family’s good graces.
But as tipoff approaches, the real test looms.
Will Tristan be able to remain loyal as his team once again hits the road?
So far, the results are less than promising.
According to Hollywood Life, Tristan has admitted that he’s finding it very difficult to resist the temptation of courtside groupies.
"Tristan is constantly surrounded by temptation, hot chicks literally throw themselves at him, and are constantly flirting with him and vying for his attention," a source tells the site.
"Tristan is doing his utmost to ignore it all though and to focus on what matters most, Khloe, his kids, and his career. It ain’t easy though, Tristan is young, he’s in his prime, and all the attention he gets is enough to tempt anyone," the insider adds.
This isn’t the first time, of course, that rumors of Tristan cheating again have made their way across social media in recent weeks.
Unfortunately, it seems Khloe is blinded by love and is having a very difficult time acknowledging the evidence that Tristan might soon embark on another full-blown affair.
“Khloe just can’t let this relationship go,” an spource tells Life & Style.
“All the Kardashians are against her having another baby, but she won’t listen to them. She’s blinded by love when it comes to Tristan.”
The source says that the Kardashians believe Tristan “is making a fool out of Khloe," and they’re stunned that she can’t see it for herself.
Fortunately, it’s not all bad news.
One insider claims that despite appearances to the contrary, Tristan has learned his lesson and is determined to do right by Khloe.
"After being caught out before and nearly losing everything he holds dearest, he’s determined to be better, to be the man he knows he can be, and to be faithful and loyal to Khloe," says one source.
"She’s his heart and soul, and he never wants to hurt or humiliate her again."
That’s all well and good, but as they say — the road game to hell is paved with good intentions.
