According to a number of recent reports, it may be over between Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson.
However, as one insider points out below, an ugly and contentious custody battle may just be starting.
Over the past few days, there have been more rumblings than ever before that Khloe is ready to end her romance with the overpaid power forward.
She's tried her hardest to forgive Tristan for cheating, but she will never be able to fully trust the horny baller ever again.
Moreover, a new NBA season has started and Thompson will be on the road frequently over the next six months or so, leaving Khloe alone with daughter True and prompting her to wonder:
What am I doing here? What's the point? Why am I limiting my options to this tall drink of dishonest water?
"She very much seems over Tristan,” a source close to the situation told People Magazine this week, adding:
"Not sure how they went from fine to being apart for weeks, but Khloe is doing great."
Here's the thing, however.
Here is what some folks out there are forgetting as they blame Khloe for sticking with Tristan in the first place:
What about little True?
Not just her well-being; we mean, what about a potential custody battle that could ensue if Khloe really does call off this relationship?
That must be a scary proposition and it must be something Khloe has thought about when weighing her options.
As she should, an insider tells In Touch Weekly.
“Tristan adores his daughter and wants to be near her and has told [Khloe] he’ll fight for custody if he has to," writes this tabloid, adding:
"He’s on the road so much and spends so much time in Cleveland. Khloe wants True to be permanently based in LA. It’s not up for negotiation."
Except that... it may be. Khloe may not have a choice.
It's possible that Tristan makes a huge legal stink if/when things truly conclude between him and Kardashian and he becomes concerned that he may never see his kid again.
As for whether Khloe will go through with the break-up anyway and deal with the consequences later?
We can't say for certain right now.
But she is getting pressure from her family the make this decision and she continues to hint on Instagram that things are far from perfect.
“Life doesn’t always introduce you to the people you want to meet," she recently wrote on that platform, mysterious concluding:
"Sometimes life puts you in touch with the people you need to meet - to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and to gradually strengthen you into the person you were meant to become.
"Be proud of yourself for how hard you’re trying."
